I didn’t expect that

To follow your gift is a calling to a wonderful adventure of discovery. Some of the deepest longing in you is the voice of your gift. The gift calls you to embrace it, not to be afraid of it.*
John O’Donohue

Instead of asking yourself, “What can I know?” ask yourself, “What at this moment am I meant to know?”**
Austin Kleon quoting W.H. Auden

Don’t expect to remain found when you follow your gift.

It is more likely that you will become lost more often than not, coming upon things you didn’t know you would delight in if had you thought of the gift as supplying you with a road map.

If there is no lostness, no surprise, no incompetence, no morphing, it may be that you haven’t come upon our gift yet.

*From John O’Donohue’s Eternal Echoes;
**From Austin Kleon’s blog: Keep calm and make ugly art, quoting W. H. Auden.
