Inner purpose and outer purpose.
Updated: Apr 1
Your life has both an inner and an outer purpose.
The inner purpose concerns being, awakening, stillness, space, presence, and is your primary.
The outer purpose concerns doing, form, your worldly achievements, and is your secondary purpose.
Both inner and outer purposes are often intrinsically linked, yet true joy and true happiness can only ever be found through your primary purpose.
