Clues to your destiny are scattered all around you and within you. If you do not see them, you have work yet to do: study, reflect, explore. As awareness grows, the vision of who you were born to be comes into sharper focus.
Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today.
Take inventory every so often. Ask yourself, Am I where I need to be, doing what I need to be doing?
The purpose of life is a life of purpose.
If your answer is yes, and your calling is clear, you are fortunate indeed. In the midst of your work, you will likely experience transcendent moments when joy spontaneously wells up in your heart from deep within.
Authentic empowerment is the knowing that you are on purpose, doing God’s work, peacefully and harmoniously.
If your answer is no, whatever is distracting you and commanding your attention may actually be pointing you in the right direction.
Whatever keeps you from your work is your work.
You will find the clarity you seek by heeding the urgings of your heart, not the meanderings of your mind.
The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire.
When you are in need of guidance and inspiration, listen to your inner wisdom as it urges you to lift your gaze heavenward.
Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.
Louisa May Alcott
