Spiritual awakening allows us to live a more fulfilled – simply put “happy” – life because we then realize that we were put on this earth to share our essence and to serve a purpose, whatever that may be for each. There’s a meaning to our existence beyond likes on Instagram, money in the bank, headcount to your presentation, etc. We are no longer measuring with worldly materials or ego, no longer measuring life as a performance, no longer ranking or attaching worth to the external numbers nor seeking validation from what’s external; Once we know our life’s purpose, our self-worth is derived from the inside, that inside, which in each of us, is a divine spark.
