Discover What You Want to Do in Life
“The reason why it seems so hard to figure out what your dreams are, to find more purpose and fulfilment in what you do in life is because you do not know where to look for the answer. Who do you trust? You cannot trust your body, because it never stays the same, changing moment to moment, and you cannot trust your mind because your thoughts come and go, they change forms and shapes and give you various feelings that rise and fall but never stay with you for more than a moment. You may not be aware of it, but you do realize neither of these are the foundation, your spiritual anchor, and your safe place to trust and to be.
There are three voices you can choose to listen to: the body, the mind, and the Spirit. But only the Spirit tells the truth, and only in your heart you will find fulfillment. “It is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the Truth” (John 5:6). You can obey and be enslaved by the cravings of the body, or chase the hungry ghosts and the illusions of the mind. You can reject the holy voice of Spirit within you, ignore the gentle calling of Love speaking in your heart, but this will create an empty shell within you, a hollowness that bring tension, anger, and with time, unbearable pain. The voice of Spirit will always be fulfilling, and what it tells will always bring you peace.
The secret of life lies in listening and trusting the voice of Spirit, and making the body and the mind the servants of Love. Spirit never changes, and lives within you, in stillness, beyond the body, the mind and the emotions. “For there are three that testify: the Spirit, the water (mind), and the blood (body), and the three are in agreement. But it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the Truth.” (John 5:6-8).What is Love calling you to do?
