There is a freshness of being that is emerging within all of us. We are being urged to Leap into that which we have long ago forgotten, yet so dearly hunger for. When we look to our childhood, it is there that we may discover the clues that will lead us to our answers. It is when we identify and embrace the things that we love to do, actively engaging them on a daily basis, that we will feel a resonance warming us from within as we begin to allow it to guide us on our way.
Living a life that we love is a highly creative act, and yet we often find it to be an elusive challenge. We try to imagine ourselves happy and joyful, our days laced with an ease and comfort in all that we do. Yet, far too often, the images we conjure up in our mind are not compatible with the actual activities and routines that we carry out each day. We need to earn livings and many of us have children to care for. We have businesses to run, classes to attend, and somewhere in there, we need to get some exercise. There is an endless list of responsibilities to fulfill and at the day’s end, many of us are just too tired to think about anything else.

When people are young, most often, they know what they love to do. Some feel the pull to become doctors, parents, or computer programmers, while others are inspired to be artists, tour guides, or business leaders.

When we are in search of Calling, we are looking for a portal to appear: a doorway to open or a light to shine brightly, beckoning for us to boldly step into that luminescence and walk on through, into the practice of doing what it is we love to do within our daily lives.
