“Among his various possible beings each man always finds one which is his genuine and authentic being. The voice which calls him to that authentic being is what we call ‘vocation.’ But the majority of men devote themselves to silencing that voice of the vocation and refusing to hear it. They manage to make a noise within themselves… To distract their own attention in order not to hear it; and they defraud themselves by substituting for their genuine selves a false course of life.”
Jose Ortega y Gasset.
Are you listening to the voice which is calling you to your vocation? Are you aware that there is an inner voice? Or, are you making noise within yourself, distracting your own attention and defrauding yourself!?
These are questions that require an answer, that can be answered if enough attention is paid to them. If you have never pondered a thing such as this; ‘vocation,’ ‘Life purpose,’ ‘Life Task,’ maybe now is the time? After all, you are reading these words…
We all have individual purpose in this life of ours. Each and every one of us is hear for a particular reason. Wether that is to produce an offspring, find a cure for cancer, become a world leader, or, torment another human being with our poisonous negativity!
My aim for this blog is only to hope that you take a short minute of introspection and ask yourself a simple question.. Are you happy where your life is right now, and feel you have found your ‘vocation?’ Makes no difference to me and my family, but it will have a huge difference to yours.
Thank you for reading, aim high, and never let someone tell you it isn’t possible!!
