"A man knows when he has found his vocation when he stops thinking about how to live and begins to live.“ – Thomas Merton
Who can tell the difference between an actor portraying a role and a person truly being that portrayal? One simply plays a game. Imitates the words and actions of another. The other feels the weight and suffering and joy of all that it means to be.
Until we understand what God has really called us to do we are like a man trying on suits to see which may fit him. By the mercy of God we can stop all of this superfluous movement and simply be in his calling. Rest in his guidance.
Then we can truly start to work.
