In the previous discussions we have come to understand your purpose as a role that allows you to express your inner values (authentic inner voice) doing the things that you are good at (using gifts, skills and talents) and what you love to do and are passionate about and also getting paid for it.

    The moment you discover your purpose is the moment that you stop 'working' and start 'living' – Coach Tarie: Wisdom Garden
    The last 3 discussions covered three clusters at the intersection of which is your purpose. These are you values, passion and gifts. Today’s insight is there to show you a place where discovery of the PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE (PDL) is easier if taken from. Discovery of the PDL is accessible if you search for it from a place of rest.

    Our major misconception to the new life is that we are activity oriented and not rest oriented in our souls. Christ did not invite us to come to him and labour but to rest - Coach Tarie: The Wisdom Garden (Volume 1)

    Stories are told of how many ideas and insights that were applied by great inventers, composers and artists came while they were in the shower or while sleeping in their dreams and sometimes in the environment of total peace like in the woods, or near large water bodies. Something is common in these environments, it is rest. We are living in an environment that is always calling us to action and yet the action is driven from outside ourselves. The majority of this activity wears us down and produces very little for ourselves.

    It is those who can get time of quietness and rest that gets the insight and tools required to be in control. We cannot be in control of what happens to us because of so much activity, but by few focused well thought of, intelligent and strategic actions.

    John Kehoe said that,
    "Our inner worlds reacts constantly and because we spend all our time simply reacting, we never experience our power. Ironically you begin to create your own reality the moment you cease constantly to react to the so called reality"

    God, the Master, The Holy of Israel, has this solemn counsel: "Your salvation requires you to turn back to me and stop your silly efforts to save yourselves. Your strength will come from settling down in complete dependence on me —  The very thing you've been unwilling to do. [Isa 30:15] [THE MESSAGE bible]

    Religion has embraced this aspect of rest and quietness and has principles of meditation to tap in accessible resources that are beyond the natural. Naturally rest was given in the creators plan as he set a day for it, put it in the separation of day from night and giving everyone the gift of sleep for the purposes or rest, refocus, rejuvenation and restoration.

    What kind of rest do you have access to, so that you can operate from, a place where you can settle down and reflect and adjust to see things clearly? I know one place that we have been given access to. It is given by the only one who gave an invitation to rest saying,

    "Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me — watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly." [Matt 11:28-30] THE MESSAGE BIBLE

    The best actions that we can take are those we begin to do from the finished work of Christ, which is the greatest rest accessible to us. The PDL is easy to discover when you rest in Christ through salvation. From there you have to rest and be free from the pressures of impressing people, seeking to fit in and be accepted. You impress God when you choose to believe in Him, you already fit in His plan through the PDL and are already accepted by Him in Christ. 

    Whenever you see yourself engaged in so much activity that has little productivity take some time to rest so that you can develop better ways to produce fruit. The secret to productivity is operating from rest. Look for the next rest that you have access to before you are burn out in so much activity that has little productivity.
