What Is Beating at the Doors of Your Soul?




Shrink from your calling, your destiny, and you not only deprive yourself, you deprive the world of the contributions you came here to make. Keep life’s call at bay and you will never be able to tap into the full majesty of your true nature.

Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for humanity.
Horace Mann





With so much at stake, life will not permit you to give your destiny the cold shoulder indefinitely. Ignore your calling long enough and it will eventually surface as a need.

The willing, Destiny guides them; the unwilling, Destiny drags them.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca

Resistance is futile. Inevitably, you will find yourself at a crossroads, agonizing over which path to take. Reinventing yourself can be intimidating, especially if you believe that destiny will be thrust upon you against your wishes.

There are two kinds of people: Those who believe their lives are determined by forces outside themselves, and those who believe that their lives are determined by a Force inside themselves.
Alan Cohen

Allow fear to get the best of you and it will sabotage your noblest desires and weigh you down with the awful heaviness of self-loathing and regret.

Fear is the fire that melts Icarian wings.
Florence Earle Coates

Even if you manage to chain up the yearning of your soul in the dungeon of your denials, you cannot help but hear, in your quiet moments, the weeping of angels.

Sad will be the day for any man when he becomes contented with the thoughts he is thinking and the deeds he is doing—where there is not forever beating at the doors of his soul some great desire to do something larger; which he knows he was meant and made to do.
Phillips Brooks
