Compassion Tree   Your Unique Purpose

Every being has a unique purpose in this world—a life path or work that serves the world we live in. Understanding and living your life’s purpose serves as both an anchor and a guide.

There will never be a storm
That can wash the path from my feet
The direction from my heart,
The light from my eyes,
Or the purpose from this life.
I know that I am untouchable to the forces
As long as I have a direction, an aim, a goal:
To serve, to love, to give.
Strength lies in the magnification of the secret qualities
Of my own personality, my own character
And though I am only a messenger,
I am me.

A quote by Yoga Master Swami Satyananda Saraswati
Taken from The Four Desires, R. Stryker, 2011.


List the 3 roles in which you feel most purposeful in your work and why.

  1. Role

  2. Role
