Bosnia grave yardThe Bosnian countryside is stunning, yet evidence of the horrific war in the 1990’s can’t be covered. Plots of farmland everywhere have become cemeteries—white markers to men forced to be soldiers, civilians slain or starved. Towns where Christians and Muslims had live together peacefully for centuries still have the debris of bombed buildings. Homes that do stand are riddled with holes from bullets and bombs.

One of our group, a woman from Sweden, had served here with the United Nations peacekeeping forces. Her return to the area was difficult but brought layers of healing. Healing for us too, as she shared her stories.

OrgnaizersWe asked our local guides to tell us their stories of the war. Our bus driver’s family had a cow. “That saved our lives because we could trade her milk for some food.” Our guide, a young Muslim man, was just a child during the war. He remembered being hungry. His mother would tell him that it was still Ramadan—the time for fasting. He can joke now that Ramadan lasted a lot longer  than a month during the war.
Our organizer who was a teen-ager then said the war started while she was at a rock concert. Soldiers blocked off the street. Sarajevo was under siege. No food or supplies could get in. She was of a mixed family and was sent to stay with Serbian relatives during the war. Young men were taken from their beds to fight; told to follow orders or their families would be killed.

Bosnia war evidenceSo many people died and those left are scarred, deeply wounded.  Yet they laugh, love and work to rebuild their home, their country’s economy and their peace. It’s so clear to us, witnesses 25 years later, that war doesn’t have good guys and bad guys. It only has victims.

On the underside of war there is the opportunity for healing, hope, rebuilding, forgiveness and compassion. Our job is to be light workers reminding ourselves and others that love and compassion are always the only response to suffering.

White Eagle: Becoming Your Life’s

 Purpose


Channeled by Jonette Crowley

Why did you decide to be alive this time? That is the ideal you are looking to uncover. The best way to find out what in the world you have agreed to do this time around is to listen to your heart and to acknowledge those things that you do easily and well, as well as that you love to do.

The first step in finding your life’s purpose is to find your life’s gifts. Once found, take an inventory of your gifts. One of your gifts may be that you like to go bowling. Other people may not see it as a gift, but if that is something you like to do, write it down on this inventory.

So then you have your gifts. You’ve probably never had the opportunity to be so clear about the things you like to do that bring you joy. Look at those and see how you can do them even more lovingly. For the purpose in all of life is to do whatever you do out of love and out of a high level of mastery.

One fallacy that people have is that they have only one life’s purpose, and they search and worry that they’ve found the right one. The purpose of living is to live in whatever you are doing out of the highest love, out of the highest place you possibly can. And the purpose of living that way is to live “on purpose”, to live deliberately, to know what you are doing and to do it fully.

Whenever you are walking across the street or putting butter on your bread, do it deliberately, do it with purpose. Do it very presently so you are in the moment. That is life’s purpose. Being in the moment you add energy to life, you vitalize your actions and so vitalize your life and your environment.

So perhaps part of your life’s purpose is to do everything you do out of love so that the energy on this planet is increased, not drained away. Wherever there is joy, there is purpose. It never has to be difficult. Your purpose doesn’t have to be to save the planet, because the planet will be saved as you are.

Wouldn’t it be fun if the purpose of living was to laugh, and the entire purpose for the Earth was to learn to laugh? If that is the case, we are all barking up the wrong tree.

 

So live deliberately in every small thing that you do. Live on purpose out of the ideal of being love, of being your soul-centered self. And of course, we agree that it is important to have an ideal. But do not confuse ideal with purpose. An ideal is a set of ways of being. An ideal may be to live out of harmony and joy. Out of your ideal your purpose may come. In fact, many purposes may come. You have a purpose in relationships, in business, in serving and in teaching.

So form first, out of the highest point of your soul, your ideal. Remember your ideal is not a goal, it is not achievable or non-achievable. It simply is. If you guide your life according to the light of an ideal, an ideal that just is, then you have incredible room for all kinds of activity and there is no failure within that scope.

You human beings look so hard for the sign that says: “This is IT, you have reached IT. This is your purpose. Dig here.” It is all IT. You are your purpose. So know that and give yourself space to have the purpose to be everything. Let the ideal be love.

 

Q: White Eagle, what suggestions do you have for helping us discover our own life’s purpose?

A: To discover it is to follow your flow, follow your heart, do the things that you love to do and do them with awareness. Your purpose is when you are standing upon the path that brings the most vitality, energy, flow and harmony to your life. As you have joy, you have love. You expand and have radiance. You become light and so you can influence the planet through your light. Whatever it is, taking care of a garden is no more or lesser a purpose than leading of armies. So please follow your heart and do the things in your life that make you happy ,because those are the things that add most to the energies of the universe.

 

Q: White Eagle, is it possible then, that we need to focus on activities that don’t seem to bring us joy at the moment but they are helping us to learn how better to love ourselves in the longrun?

 

A: That is a very good question. It seems people do that. They think that if they take the hardest path they will get the biggest lessons and will go to the top of the class faster. There is no requirement that the path needs to be steep and hard. The path can be very short and easy. There is such a misconception of mankind, that the more they suffer, the bigger the gain. “No pain, no gain” is emblazoned upon your souls. It is NOT true. If you have pain, what do you have? Pain. If you have joy, then you are blessed with joy. Period.

There are two ways to get there. You can take the path that brings suffering or you can take the path that is so light and lovely that everyone around you wants to take your path also. That helps other people to choose the way of beauty and light and joy. You will make a greater difference than if you took all of your lumps again and again and again.
