Your life mission

 "I don't know what to do with my life" is a sentence we say when we think we are deadlocked, stuck in a situation we don't want. 

So I thought about what I could answer to someone who recently said that she was in pain for not having a clue about what to do with her life. I've been there and I know what that feels like. 

Then I had a clue. 

Everyone's life mission is simpler than we think. The life mission consists in manifesting the light through oneself, generosity, uprightness, intelligence of the heart, knowing how to decenter oneself, to forget oneself. It is then that the light lives in us and lightens us. 

"My yoke is light," says Christ (yoke has the same root as "yoga", that represents the union, the bond). And that's true. We observe that the more we follow Christ and the saints (radiant hearts despite their hidden sufferings), the more we feel free, like in the desert, walking slowly towards God. 

What people do with one religious tradition or another, if not none, is not as important to God as humans might think within their small limits.

God says that our materialistic concerns, our ambitions in society, our glories, our folklore, are not his. Because God gives priority to the only precious and lasting good: the soul. It is his main concern. 

The sages like Jesus therefore shows us the way. And it is very clear in chapter 6 of Matthew for instance. 

"Take care of seeking the Kingdom first, and the rest will be given to you in addition."

This is all the answer, the inspiration that I had.

Good luck on your path. 

It's work, but it's a matter of choice. It's never easy. We all fall, including me.
