Your Purpose

Find your own sense of purpose and worth.

View Transcript
Imagine a baby peacefully asleep, her chest moving up and down as she breathes. As you observe the baby, ask yourself: What is the baby's purpose? What is her value? Does this baby deserve love? If so, what did this baby do to deserve that love? Without the time or ability to have made any great impact on the world, does the baby still have value or purpose? Now, come back into your own more grown body. What is the difference between you and this baby? What is your value? What is your purpose in this world? Do you deserve love? Have you done anything more or less than a brand new baby to give your life more meaning? Imagine if your entire purpose in this moment is just to breathe in and out, like the sleeping baby. Let's fulfill that purpose right now. Take a deep breath in. As you do so, breathe into each corner of your body until it fills up. Now, exhale. With your next breath in, breathe into the darker parts of yourself, the parts that make you question your purpose and your value. Breathe freely and fully into every corner of yourself that needs breath into the light and the shadow inside you. And exhale. And finally, breathe in one last time as if you are a brand new baby whose entire purpose is simply breathing and existing. And exhale.
