Finding our Calling

Often when we speak of finding our calling we are referring to our life’s work or career.  It has taken many years for me to realize that at least in my case, my  calling wasn’t about a job, it was about a way of life.

In my twenties if you would have told me my calling was to realize the God within all of us, to remind others of this, encourage them to thing positive thoughts and eat their vegetables, I would have laughed in your face.  🙂  It has been a long, hard road from where I thought I wanted to be to where I was meant to be.

It is still a struggle as I realize how different this calling makes me.  There are times of loneliness and sadness.  Times of feeling like an outcast — not belonging “to the world” but also not wanting to belong.  But there is also joy is watching others awaken and remember who they are and stand with and for the grace, mercy, peace and justice of God.  It is always exciting to see people awaken to truth, but right now is especially exciting.

I had intended to stop having a “theme” for each month as my blog stats seem to have been falling off this year.   I didn’t have a theme in mind for this month, but one seemed to develop on it’s own.  I guess Spirit have something else in mind.

So this month let’s explore awakening and what it means to be “called.”

  1. I resonate with what you say here. When I was in my twenties I felt the same…but fortunately we grow wiser as we grow older! Realizing that God is inside of us and learning to cultivate that has been and continues to be such a rewarding and insightful experience for me. I love it and am so grateful to have come to this path in my life and love this journey I have chosen. Wishing you the same wonderful experience with your calling!! 🙂
