I know a young man who really didn’t like school, and although he was one of the most intelligent young men I knew, he underachieved. Not only did he not like school he also didn’t seem motivated to work at menial jobs
When he got to college he eventually dropped out. His parents and teachers were concerned about his apparent laziness and lack of motivation, but the reality was that nothing they were presenting to him aligned with who he was created to be.
A few years later I observed him connect with his purpose and passion. I saw the lights go on as he aligned with what truly inspired him. I saw him work harder than other young men his age as he built a business around his innate abilities and interests. Because he was inspired, it was not work to him, it was play – it was his purpose and passion!
I observed as he spent almost every spare moment engaged in “self-education.” He thirsted for the knowledge that pertained to his new venture. He was inspired and he was taking inspired action in a massive way.
The key here is that he began taking action that he felt inspired to take, not just doing what others told him he “should” do.
“When we’re inspired we’re connected to this force that’s greater in every respect that our physical being. It was in-spirit that our purpose was laid out and its in-spirit where our magnificence is absolute and irrefutable. Before merging into form, we were a part of God, with all the inherent qualities of a Creator who sends forth abundance, creativity, love, peace, joy and well-being.” (Dyer, Inspiration, 7)
1. Your thoughts and emotions are more powerful than your actions
When you align with Divine Purpose you are led to the right actions. Inspiration is the result of your connection to Divine Purpose.
Once you understand the importance of a clear, un-corroded connection to your Source, you are going to begin experiencing inspired thoughts and feelings. When you are inspired you’ve established resonance with divine energy. Knowing that thoughts are things made up of vibrational energy, we can now see that inspired thoughts are especially powerful things, because they flow from our Source and put us on a path of divine intention.
Inspiration is Divine Purpose revealing itself to you. The word inspiration comes from two words, “In” and “spirit.” Living an inspired life is living in harmony, or, in oneness, with the divine source from which you originated. We could call it “spiritual mindedness.” As you seek to live an inspired life you begin to see yourself aligning with your Divine Purpose.
Napoleon Hill said: “An intangible impulse of thought can be transmuted into its physical counterpart by the application of known principles.” (Hill, Think and Grown Rich, 11)
Anyone who has done work of a creative nature knows the feeling of being inspired. It is an incredible experience when ideas just seem to flow. It’s like a faucet has suddenly been turned on. Inspired thoughts and ideas begin streaming into your mind as they did for George Frederick Handle when he composed the Messiah. Sometimes the ideas flow so quickly it is difficult to even write them down, but you know you have to take action.
2, Don’t try harder!
As children, most of us were taught: “Apply yourself; just try harder,” but if we need to try harder at something it means we are experiencing dissonance. This is why “principle one” comes first – you must follow the path that resonates for you. Trying harder sends a message to subconscious mind that you are lacking.
Trying harder interrupts the power of visualization. Once you have seen the thing you desire and experienced it with powerful emotion, it is no just longer something you will have in the future, but something you know is already yours.
Once you have the clear picture, your subconscious receives the plan and inspired action naturally follows. You innately know when the signal of your divine purpose is resonating with your Divine source. (This is why Principles 3 and 4 come before 5 and 6).
Remember, the “inner victory” always comes first! The harder you try, the less inspiration will flow and the less you’ll be aligned with your Divine Purpose!
If your actions are not inspired don’t take them! The harder you have to try, the less you will experience True Success!
3. Take Inspired Action
“Inspired action” is the universe’s way of alerting you to an opportunity to create an outcome that is meant for you. When you consistently focus on certain outcomes that are aligned with your purpose, like having more abundance, having your dream career, having a successful business and so on, you start drawing forth all of the resources, people, and opportunities that can help you make those outcomes a physical reality. And many of those resources show up in the form of inspired ideas, or inspired “actions” that you can take.
Many personal development programs solely on taking massive action, and of course without action there can be no results. We cannot reap, unless we sow, but if we’re frantically sowing the wrong seeds we will not reap the desired harvest. True Success happens when we take actions that are inspired by our Divine Purpose.
When our thoughts and feelings are vibrating in a low, uncomfortable, negative place, we are not open to receive inspired ideas. We are only open to receive problems, challenges, and negativity.
By working consistently on raising our frequency we become aligned with wonderful outcomes! And when we align with wonderful outcomes, we receive inspired ideas that help make those outcomes our reality.
When we are inspired by our Divine Purpose all of our thoughts break their bonds, our mind transcends limitations, our consciousness expands in every direction and we find ourselves in a new world. Dormant forces come alive and we find ourselves being far greater than we’ve ever dreamed.
When we’re inspired we’re in a state of absolute faith – an inner knowing that it’s impossible to fail, a complete absence of doubt. We’re incapable of thinking limited thoughts. We go beyond the world of boundaries to a place of creative knowing. We are under the guidance of Divine Purpose.
