Pearls of purpose are often born of sorrow, conflict or disappointment and
become the road map guiding people’s lives.
An oyster secretes layers of a material similar to its shell to protect itself when a foreign particle becomes lodged within.
These layers of secretions are produced to surround the irritation and this protective process is what grows a pearl.
In time the irritation becomes lost beneath the layers until only the beauty of the process remains.
We too can have irritants that can become lodged within, and we too form protective layers as we deal with them.
Our protective choices are always fear or love and what we choose to surround them with determines the structure of our pearl.
It is within our souls to wish to help others and if followed it can become our pearl of purpose.
If we strive to wrap our disappointments, conflicts, sorrows with love for ourselves and others we can shape our purpose towards helping others.
Without challenges, irritations, disappointments there would be no pearls of purpose, saintly lives, heroes or champions, for out of pain empathy is born.
If your purpose is to help others, strive to love the process and apply love to every situation.
