When you are ready to know your life’s purpose, it will reveal itself by taking up residence in your conscious mind. As Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung explained:
From the beginning, I had a sense of destiny, as though my life was assigned to me by fate and had to be fulfilled. This gave me an inner security and though I could never prove it to myself, it proved itself to me. I did not have this certainty, it had me.
I’ve talked to many writers, artists and other “creative” types who have experienced the call of destiny just as I have. It’s almost as if an unseen guide is nudging you constantly, persistently, unceasingly. Whether you write, paint, sing, dance or create or perform in any way, the next project is always calling your name. There is no escaping it.
I’ve had people tell me that this “calling” I talk about is a figment of my imagination, that I created it because it’s something I wanted to do. All I can say is:
If you understand, no explanation is necessary. If you don’t understand, no explanation is possible.
Note that anyone and everyone can experience this phenomenon. I focused on creative types because that’s my own experience. Everyone has a calling. It’s just a matter of time before each of us discovers what it is.
When destiny comes calling, welcome it with open arms. And let the magic begin.
Your work is to discover your work and then with all your heart to give yourself to it.
