What is fulfillment and how do we find it and nurture it?
In this episode, Lynne Twist joins host Deborah Rozman to discuss how having a purpose larger than yourself is what leads to deep fulfillment. Lynne says that when we get "off our self-centered focus, we open to new possibilities" that reward us.
We’re in a time when many societal structures and ways of thinking and being are giving way to something new and as yet unformed, which can leave us feeling uncertain, without direction. In her new book, Finding Fulfillment in a Purpose Larger than Yourself, Lynne explains why it’s so important that we listen deeply to our hearts to find and unfold our larger purpose.
Lynne is a recognized global visionary, who has dedicated her life to serving a greater good. She has been an advisor to the Desmond Tutu Foundation and is the recipient of the prestigious "Woman of Distinction’’ award from the United Nations. She helped found the World Hunger Project and the Pachamama Alliance. She sees the time we’re in now as a re-birthing process for humanity and a grand opportunity to find a new vision and purpose in serving a greater whole.
Lynne and Deborah talk about why vision and purpose are essential for personal fulfillment. Their conversation explores the difference between taking a ‘heart-stand’ that unifies people rather than a "mind stance" that separates. Lynne explains how holding a fixed position on issues is what creates judgments and polarization, blocking our ability to see or consider other perspectives.
Deborah and Lynne offer hopeful insights and next steps in finding or unfolding a larger purpose. Listening to and following the heart’s inclusive guidance is what will ultimately bring people together, leading to solutions that serve the greater good, and that is love.
The episode closes with a heart-meditation to energize your purpose and vision.
