“Your mission in life,” taught the Buddha, “is to find your mission in life and then to give your whole heart and soul to it.”
You were beamed to earth, “trailing clouds of glory,” for a purpose.
You have something noble and profound to accomplish. None other can take your place.
“Let your light shine,” commanded Jesus.
Your unfulfilled mission is a gaping black hole of squandered potential. Statues will be erected to honor your name when you fulfill your mission.
The challenge is that finding mission in the first place is usually tougher than actually living mission.
