Your Calling

Nothing is more important than being your true self.

(Listen to my song “I Want to Follow You” on YouTube by clicking HERE)


John 5:44

“How can you believe, when you accept praise from one another and do not seek the praise that comes from the only God?”


Whose praise are you seeking?

Whose praise really matters?

Many of us are people pleasers.

We were conditioned to head down that road from our earliest childhood.

When did you…or have you ever…asked yourself: “What does God want from me?”

We have been loved into existence by Love itself so that we can be a channel of love to the world.

So when you are doing that…you are pleasing God.

Because that’s when you are in touch with your true self.

As Thomas Merton wrote in New Seeds of Contemplation, “If I find Him (God), I will find myself, and if I find my true self I will find Him (God).”

If you are looking for a way to be compassion to the world…follow the example of Jesus or his closest follower Mary Magdalene.

If and when we do this…God’s praise is resounding in our souls.
