How to Let Your Life Speak, Discern Your Purpose, and Define Your Own Success

How to Let Your Life Speak, Discern Your Purpose, and Define Your Own Success | Knowledge Broker |

For the century and a half since, and undoubtedly the many centuries before, the question of how to kindle that soul-warming fire by finding one’s purpose and making a living out of meaningful work has continued to frustrate not only the young, not only aspiring artists, but people of all ages, abilities, and walks of life. How to navigate that existential maze with grace is what Parker J. Palmer — founder of the Center for Courage & Renewal and a man of great insight into the elusive art of inner wholeness — explores with compassionate warmth and wisdom in his 1999 book Let Your Life Speak: Listening for the Voice of Vocation

This story is Scooped from Maria Popova's excellent Brain Pickings. 

Kenneth Mikkelsen's insight:

What it takes to learn to listen to the timid wild animal that is the soul.

Andrea Dean's curator insight, February 8, 2015 11:26 PM

Love the work and writings of Parker Palmer:"Before you tell your life what you intend to do with it, listen for what it intends to do with you. Before you tell your life what truths and values you have decided to live up to, let your life tell you what truths you embody, what values you represent."
