Desire and calling

Jim Robbins has posted a great blog explaining the connection between our desires and our callings. He has some great insight regarding our heart and I think you would all enjoy what he has to share.

Religion has covinced us to despise our heart and its desires. However, as we learn to re-connect with our heart, we'll find desires surfacing that we've pushed down. As Jim explains, these desires are the key to discovering our calling. I think this is a very important topic that we all need to be aware of if we're to grow and be established in the life that we've been given as children of God.

I just ordered Jim's book, Aida. I'm looking forward to reading it. A bit scared too.

Why scared, Chad? I think you'll like it.

I am still thinking about all these - the good heart, the thing that we have the mind of Christ etc. The mystic side of all these seems little blurry to me... I mean, I still don't know what it all means in reality (practical life here on earth).
It's very thought provoking though...

Love to you,

Bino, I understand where you're coming from. I'm not sure I've wrapped my mind around the whole thing yet either. I really think it's just a process that we grow into like everything else.

Love you too.
