How to Find Your True Purpose


It’s easy to think our purpose in life comes from external things like careers, family or relationships, but how often do you stop to think about your inner purpose? In his book A New Earth, Eckhart Tolle suggests that inner purpose is actually the most important, and it all centers around being present and aware of the life within you. On this week’s episode, Adee and Michael explain how Tolle’s book changed their lives, and they offer four practical ways to practice presence in your own life.
