Are you a seeker? What does that even mean?
Spiritual seekers suspect there’s a deeper sense of reality than they currently live, and they want to know and feel it. This primal call to action is relentless and irresistible. The seeker’s call can arise anytime, prompted by any endeavor that provokes self-examination or inquiry. There are myriad coaches, teachers, and gurus that offer answers to the seeker’s most profound questions.
Who am I? Why am I here?
These two questions are at the root of human inquiry over the millennia. The first exploration is that of identity. We intuit that there is a more authentic version of ourselves. Joseph Campbell called this the “original myth.” It’s also been named the “original face.” This deepest story and identity can more simply be called authenticity, and the first half of the seeking journey is the search for it.
The second exploration is that of purpose. Again, we feel there’s more meaningful action to be taken than our everyday activities. We seek an authentic vocation, a calling as compelling as our seeking itself.
When we find authenticity, we find our power.
