What do you feel when you are doing that job or occupation that is meant for you to do?

For example, I am completing my degree in Christian Studies (the Ministry), and may shortly get a job. But I have so many other interests, that I wonder if I should perhaps focus my attention on something else- perhaps a Master's in Creative Writing (obviously, I am not out to make a whole ton of money! LOL).

But I also have many hobbies which bring me joy, too...I have a Minor in Art, and also love Nature, especially birds.

So how do you know what God is calling you to do with your life?

Peace and Blessings,

I know, because it is in everything. My only calling in this physical reality is to be the best that I can at any given moment, so that I experience everything in the best possible way.

HOW and through what do I express it in measures of physical reality, is not important.

Yes, but how do you get that "feeling" that you are doing the right thing with your life? I am not sure you really answered my question....Jai

Obviously you act on your highest joy in life, which is derived from what you BELIEVE to be DEFINITION of your highest joy. It's tricky, because really, ANYTHING can be defined in a way it will bring you joy. So it doesn't matter. For some teaching at school is the highest joy to others it seem boring. Why? Because of the definition of teaching. Change the definition, and everything changes with it. So whatever you choose, doesn't matter, just be the best that you can be in it ;)

Good comeback! +1 for the response!

Well, in the end, every question is easy to answer, the problems and misunderstanding occur only at the level of interpretation or the way the question is answered. So in a way I would be to "blame" for not explaining myself more clearly in YOUR way of understanding earlier. But of course, we don't blame, because the blame is superficial anachronism of physical reality and those trapped WITHIN the self-created prison of it. :)

Well Jai, I am not sure if I can tell exactly what I feel when I am doing what God wants me to do or what is my true calling. All I have experienced till date is that I just do it. There is a inner push from inside and I just do it not realizing any resistance or requiring logically any kind of explanations.

There are lots of examples in my career and person.al life when I have felt like just DO IT and I did it. these actions and decisions have proved to be extremely exceptional and very helpful to become what I am right now.

good answer perfection. but often you will see why you are there. you know what is not working and where it comes from. help if you can. experience and enjoy.

yes, for me it is a very confusing stage most of the times. I do certain things and keep thinking on why I did it and just wonder and wonder and wonder till I get a result. I finally stop wondering thinking this is beyond my understanding and leave it feeling whatever happened was for good.

(26 Mar '12, 03:25) Perfection

eventually you will stop wondering and know. it will be less painfull for you.

Just to add - and when you are doing exactly what God wants you to do, you will not feel the pain that you might have to go through in the process and others might see this as a very painful process that you are going through. This is just like a miracle!
