What Gives You Meaning in Your Life?

Contributing to the new humanity gives me meaning beyond anything I could have possibly imagined. I write books, give events, and create programs to teach about creating authentic power—aligning the personality with the soul so that we can transform ourselves with our own wills instead of trying to change others.

I am filled with meaning when I am giving a gift to Life. Sometimes when a chapter that I am writing comes to an end, or I reread a chapter that I have written, I cry without being able to stop because I am so grateful to be allowed to write these words and share these thoughts.

When we align our thoughts, emotions, and actions with the highest part of ourselves, we are filled with enthusiasm, purpose, and meaning. Life is rich and full.

—Gary Zukav

I am filled with meaning when I see that only I can change myself for the better with my own awareness and my own will, and no one else can change my life for me. I am filled with meaning when I see how much people suffer, including me, when they need to change others in order to feel worthy and safe and how futile that is.

I am especially filled with meaning when I see a part of my personality inside me that I need to change in order to feel safe and worthy and I strive to change that instead of change other people. I know that I am changing the world in a permanent, irrevocable way when I do this. I challenge my own anger, greed, jealousy, superiority, inferiority, or need to please instead of judging others when I see these things in them, and I cultivate my own patience, gratitude, contentment, and caring when I recognize them in me instead of thinking that only others can give these things to me.

    Like you Gary contributing to the new humanity gives me meaning beyond anything I could have possibly imagined. I love creating authentic power. My Irish language programme on NearFM in Coolock in Ireland is the most visible authentic power I create every week: http://www.peoplesrepublicofcork.com/~peoplesr/forums/showthread.php?t=172095
    I also do church gate collection with Gorta every week and the money goes on development projects in the Third World. Both my programme and my work with Gorta give me great satisfaction because I feel that I am making a difference on the ground.
    You say in your books that when you want to create authentic power and have spiritual partnerships you attract people in your life who are trying for the same. This does not really happen with me as much as I would like, although I know a couple of people who have done and are doing interesting things what you would call creating authentic power.

    What gives meaning in my life is waking each day in this glorious place Geshaview, in Bulgaria where I have recently arrived,and giving thanks for the amazing opportunity to be a part of such a project at this age and stage of my life. Living in a place of peace and tranquility, doing the work that I love, inspiring others to be the best they can be, as I do myself. Being a part of this wonderful time on the planet and transforming each day in ways I could not have imagined. InspirationPlus indeed.
    Blessed Be.

    What gives meaning to my life is connecting with a spiritual partner and listening, without judging or pleasing, just being there while they share from their heart about a deep experience and what they learned; and what they want to continue to learn about themselves.
