Nia (Purpose). Eschewing the fatalism often attached to the term, we now consider purpose in accord with a practice informing numerous conversations at the close of the year; resolutions. For what is purpose, but that quality of resoluteness which compels one forward in the accomplishment of a desired goal. Too often Purpose like Unity assumes a mystic and ethereal quality attaching itself to ambiguous questions on the nature of life and reality, but Purpose is merely an expression of Self Determination.
The application of your skill set toward identifying and resolving issues within the community. Each decision leading to an evolved purpose and responsibility for those efforts which fit your developmental agenda. There is no purpose which you will truly own that can be designated by someone other than yourself. You must properly analyze of the needs of the community and select for yourself those roles which best fit your particular attributes.
As the arbiter of your own purpose, interaction with the collective should provide cues to evolving communal needs and move you to acquire the skills needed for that purpose. Purpose is no static quantity, but the marriage of flexibility, forecasting and adaptation. It is a reflection of current circumstances even as you seek to transform these conditions which involves an ongoing critical reassessment of any errors in your previous analysis.
Purpose is depicted above by the symbol of Nfr which a windpipe spouting upward out of the heart and representing that which is perfect or beautiful. That which is purposeful is embedded within your core and exhales from you naturally, almost involuntarily. You become so deeply vested in this purpose that discomfort disappears or becomes understood as a necessary stage of progression. This vocation should become so deeply unified with your person that people see this purpose arrive even before they notice you.
Thereby purpose will determine with whom you assemble and move you to seek out mentorship and partnership opportunities with those whom can augment your toolkit making you ever more useful in expanding and acting in accord with your self selected purpose.
