There’s more to A Ministry of Cats than TNR, Colony Caretaking and Feral Cats: the energy that holds all that together is the thing that triggers my life purpose. The need to write; the need to advocate; the need to be alive for a reason; personal development and evolution are all put into service to achieve my purpose in life. When people ask “what’s your purpose in life,” I think that we all have the same basic purpose and that’s to become aware and therefore fully alive.
Knowing your life purpose helps you to survive in our complex world and you need a map or you’re either going to drift like a Jelly Fish or keep crashing into the rocks like flotsam. The difference is in what triggers us to keep going and gives us the focus and motivation to direct that energy outward. When you become isolated your energy stagnates because it stays with you and has nothing to do. “Why bother” becomes the question of the day. I may be rescuing myself over and over again and bringing the underdog with me and I want it to be to a better place so I want to do my best every day.
