What is your IKIGAI?

A few years ago I heard the word: IKIGAI and loved the sound of it and my curiosity was peaked on what the meaning was. I googled away and found it was the perfect word for the perfect time in my life! 

The definition in Wikipeda:

Ikigai (生き甲斐, pronounced [ikiɡai]) is a Japanese concept that means “a reason for being.” It is similar to the French phrase, raison d’être. Everyone, according to Japanese culture, has an ikigai. Finding it requires a deep and often lengthy search of self.

I think we all can relate to this concept! Finding our “purpose” is what many of us seek our entire lifetime! I am glad I was reminded of this word today while watching a very inspiring video on Facebook by the Project Happiness Founder: Randy Taran. I follow her website and listen to her videos often. In fact, my Zen Heart Creations Website and Blog was inspired by various ZenFul Blogs I have been following for years. Project Happiness, Tiny Buddha, Daily Om, Etc.

I am inspired by positive daily affirmations about Zenful Living and sharing Loving-Kindness & Compassion as often as possible. I think I may have found my IKIGAI!

I have been writing lyrics about finding my purpose for years! Here are the lyrics and link to listen to one of my songs entitled:

Seeking the purpose in my lifetime
Show me the way to make a difference
I am so grateful for my life
You are my angel now    
Thank you for guiding me
Seeing the Beauty all around me
Show me the way to find the meaning
Mother Nature is so amazing

I am so grateful seeing the light

   You  are  my  angel now    
Thank you for loving me
