Life Purpose – Dedicated to Francine – Tibet Critical

Tibet Situation Critical Documentary

Many people come to me seeking a clarity for life’s purpose. Some struggle, others do not. What explains the difference between those two groups of people? Is it fear? I don’t believe so. Is it lack of commitment to finding it? Again, that is not my discovery.

I think the difference is pain.

When a person is in pain they feel the hurt and they hurt because of something. Their heart is broken by something. And that hurt is like a drill that cuts through bullshit. That drill cuts deep and says “if I die and that problem I see isn’t changed one little bit, I have not lived.”

We often associate hurt with big issues. Like the one addressed in the video below. You will see in that video, one man, with a long whispy beard talking to camera about pain, life and life purpose. For him, the purpose – his purpose – is the only thread keeping him alive. All else is lost interest for him. But purpose and pain may not be about such big things, albeit, that purpose is always global, it can be experienced and acted on, locally.

My friend in Canada, Francine Talbot, was a chiropractor’s assistant, receptionist. One day she attended a seminar conducted by my good friend, Dr John Demartini, a chiropractor. He spoke about life purpose. She found hers. She left the seminar, went home, packed her bag and left her husband and children that night. She started running seminars, teaching, she studied, volunteers would come daily to type what she stayed up all night dictating. She read and wrote and ventured to places like Greece and Egypt and the lands of First Nation peoples. Her home, yes we were lovers, was hand painted in every room, murals of all the sacred sites, stars were painted in fluorescent paint on her ceilings. Francine was amazing and “on purpose.”

She died. The day after her life story was published and a movie deal signed with a Hollywood studio. For her, the journey was over. She slipped off a mountain while taking a group on a vision session. She died, doing what she loved.

This long and painful video below is a testimonial to life’s purpose. Frustrated, the man in the video is torn apart by the devastation of his homeland. It is hard for him, but easy for us to see the universal laws in action in his story and the story of Tibet. Can you see it?

I cannot say “please enjoy this video” with its graphic scenes of human suffering. It is certainly not for those who can’t sleep after violence. But, it is equally important not to shield your heart and mind from human suffering. Death is a part of life. It is, in fact, a Tibetan teaching. Inflicting pain on another human is a shocking thing, but the Dalai Lama’s words in this documentary have profound wisdom in them… “do not be against the Chinese or hate violence, instead be for something, for peace, for non violence, for resolution.” in other words, have a vision, not a reaction.
