Ponder these questions for a while.

Select one that you can really associate with, and go within and ask yourself the question over and over and over, till you have an answer.

Your inner divine Guide—the Holy Spirit, as the Course in Miracles teaches, will give you that answer.

The responses are within. You will receive your answer if you ask sincerely and listen for the answer.

The Course in Miracles states, “When you have accepted your mission to extend peace you will find peace, for by making it manifest you will see it.”

You can begin finding your passion and purpose. Invite the Holy Spirit within you to direct you on what to do next. And after that, take massive action. It’s worth it, I promise.

The Course in Miracles further teaches, “When you want only love you will see nothing else. The contradictory nature of the witness you perceive is merely the reflection of your conflicting invitations.”
