While traveling last month, month, we had a chance to visit my son-in-law's art studio in the heart of Havana.
He's been a painter most of his life—one of those people who answered his soul's calling at a young age.
The advantages of answering your destiny early are many: you get to master your craft, you get to complete the work you're here to do, you get to go deeper in your understanding.
But what if, like so many of us, you don't know what you want to do?
Or maybe you used to know, but now you're older—in midlife and beyond, and suddenly you're not sure of where your soul is calling you now?
In The 33 Lessons, one of the lessons is "You are what you do." In other words, if you are actively painting you are a painter, if you are actively writing you are a writer, if you are actively gardening you are a gardener, and so on.
It's as simple as not quite knowing what the next thing is, and then to begin doing it anyway.
As souls, sometimes we're clear we're on our path. Sometimes we're lost.
Yet the path is always there, whether it's what you expected or not.
Sometimes the best idea is to start with what's in front of you.
Chances are good, that is your right first step.
