I want to pick up where I left off in my previous post, about how our destiny or calling in life is simply love seeking a particular expression.
On the one hand, I feel that some people make too much about this issue. I have been a part of many Christian subcultures where the emphasis on 'God's plan for your life' is so overbearing and unhealthy that it causes a lot of confusion and disillusionment among those who end up not knowing 'what they are called to do', even though they say the prayers, attend the seminars, and read the books. I find it difficult to reconcile our attraction to this idea with the Biblical account of God's involvement with humanity. Can you imagine the early apostles hearing the kind of stuff that Jesus said, some of which we have recorded in our gospels, and saying to Him:
'Yes yes, I hear what you're saying about turning the other cheek, loving my enemies and going the extra mile. But what is God's plan for my life?'
