Why am I really here?

Have you ever asked yourself, “Why am I really here?”

Perhaps in a moment of sadness, a moment of introspection or a moment of great sobriety, you have asked yourself, “Why am I really here?”

This is an honest question, because in that moment you may have realized that further attempts to define your life based upon your own interests or your own desires will only lead you down another dead-end road.

Instead, look to the world and look to your deeper inclinations. Look at these together, for they are related to why you are really here. It is this world that is the context for realizing this, which transcends your desires, fears and preoccupations.

Why you are here will be called out of you by the great and urgent needs of the world and the deeper inclinations held within you.
