The Integral Inner Compass – The Inside Out Power

The Integral Inner Compass – The Inside Out Power

The things in your life are all so closely related, are lead by, and result in a comprehensive Integral Inner Compass, a script, which you can read. Brian Sooy described it like this:

Purpose guides you. Your purpose is a statement that articulates why you do what you do, why your organization exists, and why you serve a higher purpose (your cause).

Mission drives you. Your mission statement is how you will accomplish your purpose, and how you make a difference. Your mission is what drives you every day to fulfill your purpose. It’s a direct path between your purpose and vision.

Vision aligns you. Your vision statement is what the next day or distant future looks like. Vision aligns leaders and followers. It is an ongoing process of aligning your mission to your purpose. Vision keeps you on course, when you know what your purpose is.” [1]


Change_Leader_inside_www.stefan-goetz.com_168As already explained you can’t think your way towards your purpose, but I still want to give you some questions that may lead you to hints, experiences, that will help you sense areas or elements with the DNA information of who you are. Futhermore, I will introduce an exercise that which may help you get a climpse about your purpose, vision and mission. You will find it in chapter 5 about Presencing – Unfolding potential from the emerging. Now let’s start with some questions on purpose, vision and mission and may be you want to have a piece of paper and pen ready and note what comes up immediately without thinking, just sensing, even i fit sounds weired. Don’t judge it, just continue as we are communication now also with your unconscious mind. Enjoy J


Purpose – WHY

  • What central theme in my life can give me clues about what my life purpose might be
  • What are the connecting dots in my life, good and bad, that will reveal my gifts that I could have given to life to help change the situation
  • What are my needs that I have denied for so long and expected others to fulfill whilst I realize that if I see it missing in others I am the one who has it and could really make a difference to everyone by giving it and then receiving it
  • What wants to emerge through my existence
  • What do I expect from others that in truth is what I have to give
  • What am I in service for that my heart tells a story about
  • What is my contribution to this planet
  • What is my highest potential that can unfold for my life purpose, which will serve much more than my ego or financial success
  • What am I most afraid of and which could become my greatest gift in life, if I was courageous enough to step towards it, embraced it and unfolded the potential behind it
  • How can my potential and my behavior support the greater good
  • What qualitites were missing with my dad, mom and ceiblings, that I was expecting from them to have instead of realizing that these are hidden qualities I have which are part of my purpose when I accepted life as a training ground for my purpose


 Vision  – WHAT FOR

  • What is my vision of a world in which my potential and the potential of everyone is unfolded
  • What does really lack in our society, and how could my gift be the best fitting solution
  • What gives meaning to my life and others around me
  • What world would emerge if I truly applied myself and my purpose
  • What is my picture of a world that is truly meaningful


Mission – HOW

  • How do I serve the planet
  • How do I apply myself and how do I live my purpose
  • How do I support my vision
  • What roles or lifeplays do I further unfold and develop
