If you want to know more. Ask the universe. She will tell you. Our heart beats alongside the soul of the world. And remember: "Love should never keep a man from pursuing his personal legend."
I think it's easy to go down certain paths because we believe it is what we are supposed to be doing. Maybe a teacher told us something when we were younger, or perhaps a whole community did. It could be an artistic talent or a family business. Whatever it was, sometimes we pursue things because we believed it was our destiny. A passion grew out of it, or maybe it was a perceived passion, and we only thought it was what our heart called for. Again, the power of conditioning is strong.
I believe that if we spend time looking inward, we will eventually be able to cultivate an ear for what our heart is saying. It will slowly begin to speak louder than the society around us. It will take time, but if we are passionate about understanding why we are really here, then through meditation, awareness and kindness (among many other beautiful methods) we can discover the path that will lead us closer to the answer.
