I looked for my true calling

I looked for my true purpose

What I am supposed to do on the planet

why was I born?

and I asked the question deep inside me

beyond logic, beyond thought, deep in the bowels

of the space where I connect to the universe

where I can be thrown into the raging storm of 'not knowing'

and the answer hit me in an immense tidal wave of understanding

"you are your own purpose

nothing more, and nothing less

a bundle of purpose and karma

all existing within itself

and the only thing holding it back

is the separation created by

words like 'I' and 'my' and 'me'"
