“Chances are that our higher purpose is already showing in our lives. It is usually there from the very beginning, expressing itself through who we are even as children. Whatever things we do naturally and easily, whatever our innate talents and interests, whatever knowledge and skills we’ve been led to develop, and whatever people and activities we are drawn to, all these provide us with clues about our higher purpose. We may already be expressing that purpose so naturally and easily that it’s just no big deal. If so, we will have a feeling of fulfillment and contentment where that aspect our lives is concerned.
Many of us have yet to discover our higher purpose, in which case there will probably be a sense of dissatisfaction and restlessness until we do. It has often been said that we are most blind to our greatest gifts. Many times, it is our friends and loved ones who see them most clearly. Often, these gifts, which others value so highly in us, are things that come very easily and perhaps even automatically to us. Part of what makes them so difficult for us to recognize is that they are associated with things that we find easy, enjoyable and effortless for us to do.”
