  • Do you think it's possible that you have found it, that you just don't accept it anon? I know there are things I'm called to that I dread and avoid.

  • Innate, No. I believe we create our own purpose in life.

  • If you really want to know...I think I have had so many lives (reincarnation) that I like a damn lot of things and not just one keeps me interested. I am drawn to certain things, there is no question about it but am I making a living at it? No. So I guess one must define how integral this "thing" is in one's life?

  • I grew up always feeling like I was supposed to be somebody I just never knew what. Like you watch those "before they were stars" shows and they all say they just felt "different" and their family and friends say they just had that aura about them, people would say that about me. More than once (though not extemely often) I've had complete strangers say that they see big things in my future. But alas, here I am, a nobody. I do not believe that EVERYBODY is born with an inate purpose but I do believe that that is simply the only explanation for some.
