inner life

If you want to know what you are here to do, look around you, at the life you already have. It will tell you what to do next if you follow the deepest thing you feel inside. You may realize that, ultimately, your own true vocation has no outer form; that your dedication is to an inner life that is not concerned with the work you do. What matters, finally, is less what it looks like–the presence or absence of a string of achievements–than the pouring of your heart and soul into the longings and loves you have been given.

-Roger Housden, from Ten Poems To Set You Free
