just before I was born, i chose what my mission would be here on earth, and part of it is to find out what it is. i can feel it in my body and in the tranquility of my mind whenever i am more in line with the path that is mine, even though it is often not clear or expressed. sometimes, in flashes of search for discernment, i look back and find myself without reference of the path i have taken and that has led me here. and i look forward and cannot see the road that still has to be traveled to reach the fulfillment of my mission. anyway, armed with confidence in my step and continuity in action, the path unveils itself under my feet.
