The end of the world has come and gone and the so called New Dawn occurred on the 22nd of December 2012 to herald in a new era. Yet we seem captivated in ‘Groundhog Day’. Despite it being a New Dawn and a New Year, we still face the same old world problems. Has any thing new really occurred?
Now that aliens have failed to show up to save us and the world was not transformed overnight in some spiritual rapture, we humans are left with the responsibility of creating the better world we desire to live in, and solving those problems ourselves.
What do we do now?
Consider this – If a butterfly flapping its wings in Sumatra can effect the weather patterns in New York, what do you as a human being effect every time you breathe and move?
The Butterfly Effect Of Living Your Higher Life Purpose
The phenomenon of small movements, having an effect on larger systems, has been coined as a phrase called ‘The Butterfly Effect’ by mathematician Edward Lorenz.
The worker bee is a great example of this ‘Effect’ because without the daily activity of these small creatures gathering nectar, we humans would most like starve to death. Everything that eats plant life is kept alive because of the simple activity of bees collecting nectar, taking it back to the hive and pollinating plants as they go, also helping in plant propagation. That’s a huge ‘Butterfly Effect’ for such small creatures carrying out the simple purpose of gathering nectar.
We humans are no different from the worker honey bee in that we cause a ‘Butterfly Effect’ with what it is we do. The very small or big things we do has a ‘Butterfly Effect’ on larger systems and the world at large. We are unconsciously causing effects daily. When we begin to consciously focus our actions according to the higher level of our Life Purpose; then we begin the process of a positive ‘Butterfly Effect’, making an even bigger difference that can solve all manner of the world’s problems. This is nature’s design.
Here is an example of how it works. Wayne has an idea that will help solve a problem for the men and women that stand beside him at work. His only desire is to help them keep up their energy and vital life force throughout the long working day, so they don’t have to turn to drugs like speed. He is carrying out the higher level of his Life Purpose in creating a product and service range that he can export, if he chooses.
Wayne’s ‘Butterfly Effect’ creates safer roads because his workmates, once driving our roads while doped up of drugs, are now clean, sober and alert as they drive. That saves lives. It saves taxes payer dollars in a roundabout way. It saves families from the potential abuse that often is associated with drug abuse. In short, Wayne’s idea may seem small, and you may never meet him, but your life is affected by him living his Higher Purpose. As his idea takes off worldwide, you’ll be driving safer roads. It’s a crude and simple example but I have many more. You take Wayne and multiply him by the billions of people living on our planet, and simply by each of us stepping up to our Higher Purpose, we will begin to solves those world problems and transform our world.
This type of ‘Butterfly Effect’, caused by living a life of purpose, is one of the many reasons Life Purpose should be taught in schools. Instead of asking our children, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” we could ask them, “What have you come into this world to do?”, and then provide them with the education system that best helps them perform their Personal Mission.
In 2012 alone, I helped over one thousand people find their Life Purpose and higher reason for being here on this planet. In over a thousand clients I have not found one exception to this observation – Within each of us is a Higher Purpose which is a higher level of the expression of our daily Life Purpose. It’s the very thing we were born to do at that higher level. We have a Personal Mission in that sense – something we were born to do. Within that Personal Mission is a seed that contains a unique solution to someone’s problem, and even world problems. It might not be a direct solution, however, the problem gets solved through the ‘Butterfly Effect’ of you expressing yourself through your Higher Purpose, and doing that thing you came here to do – fulfilling your Personal Mission.
Through the ‘Butterfly Effect’ of people focusing on their Higher Purpose and Personal Mission, as opposed to getting a job, we will solve our current problems in more economical ways. (Wayne’s Higher Purpose, by the way, pays him more money). Having solved our biggest problems and living our Higher Purpose, we’ll also begin to free up our energy to explore our higher potentials as individuals, and as ‘a humanity’. This of course would require us to restructure our society around the Law of Purpose, allowing for everyone to take their rightful place, instead of having to fit into an economical structure that, quite frankly, is proving to be unsustainable. Or, will that structure begin to transform by the ‘Butterfly Effect’ of us stepping up to our higher Life Purpose? Perhaps all we need is to reach a critical mass of people living on purpose, for that transformation to take place?
You may have heard the popular expression, “All things being equal, a simpler explanation is better than a more complex one.” Or, “The simpler of two competing ideas is preferred”. These are statements commonly referred to as ‘Occam’s Razor’. Aligning ourselves, and restructuring our systems, according to the Law of Purpose is ‘Occam’s Razor’.
While complex solutions to world problems seem to create more complex problems, a simpler solution might suffice. If we each declare 2013 to be the year we discover what we are here to do, step up to do that very thing we were born for, through the ‘Butterfly Effect’ we might have a better chance of transforming the word to that better place we all dream of.
The ancient Greek philosopher Plato said it was our greatest quest to, “Know Thy Self”. I happen to agree with him and would add, “It is our greatest imperative to discover what we are here to do, so we can thrive and our planet can survive.” The world won’t change because we have sought and gained permission of our politicians to make changes.
How can we change the world? The world will transform by each of us stepping up and taking our rightful place within the Law of Purpose, living our higher Life Purpose, letting the ‘Butterfly Effect’ and the Laws of Nature take care of the rest.
