What is Your Soul's Purpose? And Can You Achieve It?

I've been doing a lot of thinking lately about my soul's purpose in life. I often wonder how we are all supposed to achieve our purposes in life when so many obstacles appear to be blocking us, or at least substantially slowing us down. How are we ever expected to achieve greatness living within a system that practically forces us to spend almost every waking moment either working for another person/ company or worrying about money and if we can survive on what we get. Between working, worrying and then wasting time getting drunk or high to ease the pain of our suffering, we are hardly getting anywhere in life. Like a wild animal we are basically existing to survive and procreate. So how then are we to find time to achieve our soul's purpose in life, or even to consider that question and discover the answer? Sadly, most of us don't ever discover our purpose or achieve it. Most of us have been programmed from an early age to go to school and excel at our studies, then work for someone else the majority of our life, get married, have kids, pay bills, go into debt and die with hardly anything to show for our hardwork. Most of society will accept and not question this way of existence at all. We are taught things like 'no pain no gain' , 'sleep is the cousin of death', 'you can't get anything for free', 'you have to work hard to achieve anything in life', 'money doesn't grow on trees', etc. All these thoughts are programs and not necessarily the truth unless you choose to believe them. But the problem is... while everyone else is running around trying to work hard to survive, I am not. I don't even have the energy levels to live such an exhausting existence. But more importantly, I don't believe it is even necessary to live such a treachurous existence. I am part of the 5 percent (that's an approximation) that has unplugged from the exploitive mind control programming that we've all assumed was unquestionably reality, and I decided to create my own more positive, success and abundance oriented programming.

Often when I think back to my past, I discover clues as to what my soul's purpose really is. When I was born I was told that I slid right out of my mom with a smile on my face. It was an unusual birth and so the doctor called in all the nurses to view the smiling newborn. Perhaps I was smiling out of joy? After all, I had been trapped in a uterus for 9 months and I finally broke FREE! Perhaps I realized that this time around I would actually achieve my soul's purpose?

As a toddler my mother would place me in a play pen and walk away. One day I wasn't having it anymore. The playpen had become an uncomfortable prison for me. Although I screamed and cried for help, my calls went unanswered. There was only one thing left for me to do. I had to take matters into my own hands. I couldn't stand this imprisonment for one moment longer. It was unacceptable! So I bravely climbed up my playpen mesh wall and dove out head first onto the wood floor. I cried out of shock and joy at the same time. I was finally FREE!

As a young child in elementary school my friends would sometimes discuss what they wanted to be when they grew up. The usual answers were that they wanted to be a doctor or a lawyer or a ballerina. Ofcourse as children we all envisioned being successful. No one ever said they wanted to be a waitress or flipping burgers at McDonalds. As a child growing up in a relatively well to do Jewish neighborhood it would seem that we were all programmed to succeed in life. But the success was still always predicated on working hard for a living. So interestingly, when contemplating what I wanted to be when I grew up, I decided that I wanted to make the most amount of money in the least amount of time with the least amount of effort! Wow! I wanted to be financially FREE! I didn't want to have to work hard for a living. I wanted to work smart. Perhaps not work at all? With all the abundance that exists on this planet shouldn't financial freedom be our true reality?

I reached a crucial turning point during my junior year of college. After being indoctrinated and programmed by society for around 21 years a glitch occurred.  I became very sick and depressed. While watching a Christina Aguilera special on MTV I became inspired to be an entertainer and help make the world a better place. I had a spiritual awakening and remembered my purpose in life. I renamed myself 'Epiphany' and wrote my first song. It started like this: 'Just the other day my Epiphany took place. No longer in fear I can now set my own pace.... We all must start to open our minds and search for our life's purpose, not live a fake reality involved in hocus pocus...not I the human being over seeing my dreaming and making it a reality, fallacy into nonfiction... ' Within that precious Epiphany I discovered FREEDOM from fear. I was ready to take on the world and nothing could stop me. I became a powerful being of light and love. And I became aware that a higher power was working through me to help me to achieve my soul's purpose.

After graduating business school with honors I reluctantly decided to take a 9-5 job in outside sales. I had met a very nice guy on a music video shoot who told me that he could hook me up with a super easy full time job. He told me that I could make good money but basically do whatever I wanted. The owners of the business would never check on me. Boy was he wrong! I took the job and realized that I had to check in with the owner at 9am every morning. Mornings were very difficult for me! Even worse, I was dealing with a gastrointestinal problem, mood disorder and I was empathic! I could feel everyone's misery at the company. It was unbearable. After a few difficult months I asked to be fired hoping to get unemployment insurance. But I never actually applied for it. It felt like the wrong thing to do. On the train ride home from quitting this job I felt so relieved and triumphant that I wrote one of my best songs ever called 'Do You Hear My Cry?' I consider this song to be my world peace anthem. One of the most important lines in the song, which should give you a clue to my soul's purpose is: 'I long for the FREEDOM to cure all pain.' Followed by 'I can't do this alone, we must all join in!'

More recently, when reading the book, 'What Would Billionaires Do?' by Garrett Gunderson, the author provides insights on his financial premise and vision in his statement of purpose for his trust that he's leaving to his kids and his descendants. It is a very inspiring read! In his statement of purpose he makes mention of one's soul's purpose quite a few times. He envisions a world with Soul Purpose as the number one priority for wealth and not as a deterrent!

I am a lot of things. I am a singer, songwriter, rapper, poet, actress, model, writer, healer, spiritualist, humanitarian, environmentalist, animal advocate, philanthropist, truth seeker... perhaps even an influencer? But now I've come to realize my soul's purpose... and that is FREEDOM! Freedom from fear, suffering and pain.... Freedom of thought...Freedom of expression... And FINANCIAL FREEDOM! The signs were always there! My soul is perpetually crying 'Give me FREE!' And the universe is perpetually answering, 'Be patient my child. FREEDOM you shall have.' If it pleases the cosmic it is done!
