What is a calling?

I think of a calling like a seed that we are born with and as we grow and mature (whatever age that may be) that seed begins to burst forth with awareness and we become fascinated by the subject of our call… whatever it is… we look up to and resonate with people who are already doing what we are being called to and we become passionate students until we are ready to step into the call. We attend classes, read books, find our teachers and mentors. The downside of this of course is that sometimes for some of us, we never feel ready or good enough and so we go through our lives not knowing if this is it, not feeling qualified and feeling resistance (fear)and we continue searching and seeking our life purpose when it is right in front of us.

We all have a life purpose, sometimes it’s not a big, grand, dramatic one, such as Mother Theresa or the Dalai Lama, sometimes its a quiet, subtle and yet an equally powerful purpose such as giving and receiving Love. Whatever it is, the most important thing is to self-actualize into it and begin living your call in baby steps or huge strides. Life needs you, Love needs you, You need you !!
