Create Meaning Through Purposeful Actions
Complimenting the path “Explore” which focuses on how you absorb meaning, “Create” seminars have you observe the thinking processes involved in your output of meaning; your outward creation of meaning. We live life by creating; we build a home, we develop new relationships, we put in motion plans for our future, we bring into being new ideas, we initiate action to resolve problems, we work effortlessly to give life to our hopes and aspirations. But how meaningful is what we create? What is the value of what we create in fulfilling our true needs?
The state of being, and likewise wellbeing, is enlivened and propelled by continuous creation.
Our thinking directs the way we set goals and define purpose in everything we create; large or small. Goals represent “what” we want – the “end” of our creative process – and purpose represents “why” we want it – the “beginning”. Purpose is rooted in our personal needs – security, acceptance, confidence, self-esteem and many more. Creative goals are the means through which we satisfy our needs; each of us in our own personal way. In the way we create friendships and families or create job opportunities and holiday plans; there is purpose and intention behind the “final” act. However, the progression of our purpose isn’t as linear as we expect, and the nature of our goals isn’t as static as we’ve been taught.
We tend to concentrate too much on the shape of our final goal and overlook the way meaning is created within the actual process of creating.
Creating meaning is an on going process that evolves as we develop and we develop as it evolves. Don’t look for a “final” destination in anything you do. Move with a direction in mind, but no end in sight. Concentrate on the way your actions authentically unravel to meet your needs. Let your purpose push your decisions forward and forge your path, rather than being pulled by a predetermined final idea. By emphasizing the meanings and value of the present moment, you give yourself space to cultivate new meaning freely and allow opportunities to naturally present themselves as a result of the energies you’ve exerted. Developing a cyclical process of creating; feeding into your sense of being through your experiences and moving forward with your learnings. Arriving at a quality of today that’s been created freely and unrestricted; guided by purpose and fulfilling a goal that exists in the present continuous.

MORE ON HOW TO CREATE MEANING…
Your daily life is more than a series of completed tasks. It is the field of opportunities to create meaning for yourself and others.
Goals represent what we aim for, the benefits we expect as a result of our actions. The true meaning of the benefits we work for, rests in the need they come to fulfill; the purpose. For example, a new promotion at work may represent security, knowledge, sense of empowerment, or comfort in the money gained. The series of actions we undertake reflects the way we energize ourselves in making choices and decisions. Do we choose to be friendly, cooperative, truthful, open or reserved in our behavior? Actions are the ingredients of the whole process; the acts through which we express our feelings and needs. They are, therefore, the true indicators of self and purpose. They are real and truthful in the meaning they create. When we examine our actions we become aware of what we create; the significance of the results in fulfilling our purpose, as well as, how they were brought about. Of course, we may miss fulfilling our needs when our expectations (the goals we set) do not represent them; these are goals that act as purpose and misguide us. But, we succeed by understanding why we fail in the process of creating meaning for ourselves.
