I think we all want to live purposeful lives. We want our lives to have meaning and be of value. We want to share our gifts with the world and to benefit others, but how do we do that?
For most of us our gifts are not readily apparent, and if they are we often don't know how to share them. We often don't know how to coordinate our work, relationships, our families. We may find ourselves making either/or decisions- family or career, push ahead or give up, succeed or fail.
How do we bring all of this onto the path?
Focus on your practice.
When you focus on your practice, your relationships benefit and are included in your practice.
When you focus on your practice, your work benefits and is included in your practice.
When you focus on your practice, your family benefits and is included in your practice.
When you focus on your practice, your problems and stress are included in your practice and become catalysts of your path.
Clarify your practice, and your practice clarifies you.
Experience value in your practice, and you experience your own value.
Discover the meaning of your practice, and discover your own meaning.
So what is your practice?
Do not take this question lightly. Find it, clarify it, and everything else falls into place.
