A Way to Find One's Purpose (and, Coincidentally, Happiness and Contentment)
A fable: A man is seen riding a horse galloping at top speed, careening through the main street of town.
His friend shouts to him as he goes by, “Where are you going?”
“I don’t know,” the man yells back. “Ask the horse.”
If this story seems familiar, if you're scrambling to find your path, or if you have the sinking feeling that you're doing a great job on what is probably the wrong path, then consider taking a contemplative, spiritual pause—a chance to reflect and reorient—with Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian. O’Brian—ordained in the path of Kriya Yoga by Roy Eugene Davis, direct disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda—will lead a discussion of how to find one's life's purpose from a spiritual perspective. We'll look at how to find that purpose, and how to move towards its realization. O’Brian will show us a way to meditate and will share some surprisingly useful, millennia-tested methods for staying focused on one's goals even when tired, overwhelmed, doubtful or resistant.
