“Many people today are confused about their spiritual purpose here on earth. Many feel impatient to begin what they perceive to be their destined work, but Teresa warns about “going out ahead of time.” We can damage both ourselves and others she said, if we do not wait for the Beloved’s direction. It is the Beloved who chooses what is required of us and when this will occur; we will not discover our work by thinking about it. As Teresa said, it is our job to love much and not think much…It is not what we do, but how we do it, that matters, said Teresa. Each of us has a designated role to play on this earth, and when we enter into true harmony with our own being, this special place will be revealed to us. Be patient and know that “she who receives more, serves more.”
Megan Don, in “Meditations with Teresa of Avila”
