Purpose is a major driving force in our lives. I would rather term it a major pulling power, though: we are pulled towards something greater than ourselves on a higher level or plane. And rather than being driven or pushed, we are rather pulled, helped supported to attain heights that ordinarily would be difficult to achieve. We may have a definite sense of purpose or we may ascribe to ourselves a perceived sense of purpose. Many years ago I wrote in my journal: my (perceived) purpose is to help myself and others be happier, healthier, more positive and optimistic, more Creation-conscious, more open and receptive to giving and receiving love, more successful, better in whatever way.
A while back I conceptualised POP, which is an acronym for: People On Purpose, or Power Of Purpose. It was in the context of a networking organisation whereby people with a sense of purpose would be guided to work towards achieving their goals utilising the organisation as the vehicle. This fell through but the idea remains very strong for me. The idea of being drawn towards our purpose, our soul purpose even, is very attractive. When purposeful people work together the results can be amazing.
