BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, January 16th, 2017 by Alan Cohen

“Many people ask me, “How can I find my passion in life?” and “How can I know what my purpose is?” The answer is simple, I tell them, but it takes courage and practice:  Tell the impeccable truth (at least to yourself) about how everything you do feels inside. Does it bring your greater peace, or remove it from you? Does it inspire you to live, create, and succeed, or does it drag you down? Are you doing it by choice, or from fear or obligation?

As you recognize your impeccable truth about the”little” decisions in life (which are not so little, after all), you begin to recognize where your inner guidance is pointing you, and as you follow it, you develop a relationship with your inner wisdom. It speaks to you every moment of every day. “Now all that is left,” a brilliant philosopher deduced, “is for you to become yourself.”
