I recently read a short meditation from Fr. Rohr at the Center for Action and Contemplation. In it he explains the journey of finding our purpose in life. He explains;
"There is much evidence that there are at least two major tasks to human life. The first task is to build a strong container or identity; the second is to find the contents that the container is meant to hold. We all try to do what seems like the task that life first hands us: establishing an identity, a home, relationships, friends, community, security, and building a proper platform for our only life.
But it takes us much longer to discover the 'task within the task,' as I like to call it: what we are really doing when we are doing what we are doing."
