In this guided meditation by Sean Fargo, we are invited to ask ourselves: what makes me come alive? While we might often feel called to give the world what it needs, we often miss the truth that what is really needed on this earth – now more than ever – is a rise in our collective aliveness of being. By serving ourselves in an authentic way, we serve the world.

What the World Needs

Depending on who you ask, the world needs different things. It can therefore be quite challenging to figure out how we can best serve the earthly community we are a part of. However, rather than look outside ourselves for what is needed, we can facilitate inspired, positive evolution on this planet by looking within to better understand what we -– each as a unique human being ¬– have to offer. When we are alive in our being, we exude peace, happiness, and contentment, which serves the world in countless ways.

Meditating on Our Aliveness

This guided meditation is a stepping stone that can help us to answer that question: what makes me come alive? By tuning into the inner world through exploring any feelings, sensations, images or thoughts that arise as we mindfully reflect on this question, we gain clues as to how we can contribute in a way that resonates with our deepest yearnings. By committing to our own personal journey through continued mindfulness practice, we enhance our ability to listen to our most inspired personal truths.
