The One Thing

Rumi says:
“You can accomplish a hundred other things but if you do not accomplish the one thing for which you have been sent, it will be as if you have done nothing.”

Rumi is implying that we have a life purpose and if we do not accomplish this purpose, the other hundred things we do does not amount to much.

However, how do you find your purpose? There is no life manual available. Teachers and parents seldom talk about it and the religious establishments at best only skirt around the issue.

So most people grow up doing a hundred things instead of that one thing that means everything.

The one thing that you need to do is to apply your birth-day gift (the gift you are born with) to create a positive impact in the lives of others!

How about you? Will you dare to do the one thing that at the end of the day means everything?

  1. There have been discussions in regard to one’s life purpose – there is no agreement yet for this one answer. For sure like you’ve said one will never settle, achieving a total wellbeing, until he/she indulges in that particular creation that the Lord sent him/her to bring forth to the Universe.

    What is an advice you can share in order to help the humankind that’s busy suffering.

    • Hi Gideon, Apologies for the late reply. My suggestion is to look at what you can do at this very moment. And then do that to the best of your ability. If we take care of this moment, the rest will take care of itself. Hope this helps
