The Call to Greatness

You must select your own path and not follow another on your hero's journey.

In the legend of King Arthur and the quest for the Holy Grail, whenever a knight would come upon a road with footprints, he would stop and take a road not yet traveled. This is a beautiful analogy for our own spiritual journey – you must find your own path; otherwise, you risk the danger of living someone else’s idea of what your life should be – your church, your parents, your society.

We are each called to greatness, and the nature and character of the call we have no control over. Our souls guide us, let us know what is right and meaningful in our own lives. No one else can tell you, you must find what it is your soul desires, or risk losing it!

Mother Teresa was asked why she chose to accept her struggle: “I realized I couldn’t live without seeing people die with a smile on their faces.” What calls you?
