Ikigai, our reason for being. What is your vision for life? 

what is your vision
How many times have we heard or been asked, what is your passion? What is your vision? Sometimes we groan and sometimes we just spill over in our own excitement to answer that question.

I think it is really asking what is the reason that we get out of bed each day. What is that spark that drives us to be driven towards an ideal? The Japanese have a concept that is called Ikigai. The translation is our reason for being.

According to Wikipedia, Ikigai, is the search for that meaning of purpose. In other words doing the soul-searching to determine what brings satisfaction and joy to our lives. It means when we find that answer, we live it to the fullest.

But seriously, what is your vision for life?

EXAMPLES  of your own vision:

For instance, when we are alone, what brings us a sense of deep satisfaction? Reading, creating? When we are with others is it making people laugh, giving to others, and being of service, is it empowering others? The list is infinite.

The Idea though is to sit down and figure it out.

Ask yourself what activities do I do that brings me a very strong sense of satisfaction? What makes my heart soar and my head just want more?

For me it is creating and being of service, whether it be writing or art or holding someone’s heart.

And especially creating something that I can just surprise someone with a gift. But mostly it is the wanting to share that life is what we make it. The choices we step into.

My vision is wanting to be of service to be helping to balance the light. So that we all see the goodness, and then live it.

I think we know it by how it feels. We feel satisfied and so very alive.

When the circles meet in the center it shows:

  • what the world needs
  • what you are good at
  • what you can be paid for
  • what you love

HOW DO WE USE THIS IDEA to find our vision?

When we can fully answer these four questions, we have direction. And blast off, we have our passion. The reason we do get up every day.

I imagine it is like finding the fountain of youth. We feel vibrant, thriving and so very alive.

So what is your vision? 

Jay Shetty says that when we are living our vision we are in the head, heart and hand mode. He explains it this way.

When we are in the head mode, we have completely clarity.  In the heart mode we understand intuition and live compassion. In the hand mode, we live service. We pay it forward.

Being able to combine, head, heart and hand we then truly walk our vision. Don’t you like that? To me it feels like living with those three modes every time we do something, brings us to such a clearer focus.

How amazing is it to ask ourselves as we clarify our vision, is our head, heart and hand completely working in sync?  That makes me feel really empowered, does it for you?


Finding our vision, our passion, our reason for being, is integral to our well-being. We all know what it feels like to not have passion and zest for life. So finding it is not about it have to be huge earth-shattering concept. We don’t have to change the entire world.

But we are fully responsible to fill ourselves with self-satisfaction. And not the egocentric one of making ourselves look like something else.

No, this is the truth of our inner heart speaking. There is no way around it.

Once you have found your way to your passion, and your vision, the reason for getting up each morning..there is no stopping that amazing momentum!

It becomes the joy of living. You could write your own book on how lovely it feels to be alive.

Jay Shetty says,what if in your 70’s or 90′ and you look back and say what would I regret that I did not do? Wow, that is truly powerful yes? So here we are. In this moment.

We can take away later regret. And just do it now. My mentor Bo Tipton always says, we are on the NOW plan. And that so resonates with me, does it with you?

You know why? Because it means we are taking charge. We are knowing what we need to do. And then we step into the actionable steps and make it happen.

That allows us to live in Ikigai. Our reason for getting up each day, yes?

So what is our vision? Hmm, let’s do the work NOW and figure it out. For we don’t want to enter tomorrow with regrets, do we?

So here we are..you can find your own sense of drive and passion. How does it look to you? What does it feel like? How do you live it?

What is  your vision?

I want to hear about it please. I think that when we allow ourselves to see our own true reason for being here, and for knowing why we truly get up in the morning, that is when the light shines so brightly, yes?

  2. Ariel,
    Thanks for teaching me a new word today, Ikigae. I think so many of us are not following our passions. You are right, it is important for us to ask those 4 questions, we might just find our answer.


    1. Hello Lisa, isn’t that an amazing concept? I am really liking it..I mean all cultures have that concept i just like how it is expressed. So many thanks for stopping by. I know, we just need to ask and listen and then live them! I wish you great success. Thank you for being here. In peace and gratitude, ariel

  3. Hi Ariel, I love your deeply sensitive style of writing and the gentle spirit which emanates from that writing. For me my Ikigai is God. Jeremiah 29 :11 says For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you,” declares the Lord,.
    My peace and my reason for being is all wrapped up in knowing God. You can just place the word God in that central segment .
    It all makes perfect sense and then we can fulfill His purpose to love God and to love and serve one another.
    “Finding our vision, our passion, our reason for being, Is integral to our well-being.” and that is something we all need to do .

    1. Hello Judy, I am so glad you stopped by! Thank you so much for your very kinds words. I think wherever our center is,what ever is our truth is where we find our peace. So that is well said.
