Buddha Speaks - Action


Human beings are creatures of action.  As we move down a spiritual path, we sometimes forget that we still need to do, or to be part of an ongoing action.  It might be raising a family, or being a forest ranger.  It may be that we need to run or to work out.  Whatever action calls to you is the action that you need to honour.  It is a different calling for each of us because we are unique.  And yes, the calling might be similar but it will not be exact.

How do we move through the changes as we get our calls for action?  First, recognize that the call is a blessing.  We may get it early in life or very late.  Some get the calling and ignore it. Second, realize that the call to action may change you, and, it may cause your family and friends to forsake you.  When people say that you have changed, they do not necessarily mean it as a compliment. Third, know that it will take some planning on your part to make the change gracefully.
