The Spiritual Calling for Ministerial Service
Our winding Journey through life often brings us to inconspicuous places, leading us to question our life purpose and what could be our true work in this lifetime. When we face those questions, usually One unique experience unites us all; the feeling and the need to accomplish something often bigger than ourselves.
A Spiritual Calling speaks to us initially through a faint voice, coming from the heart. You hear the voice coming from the silence of your soul. It is a call, almost an insignificant song that grows every day, echoing from the heart to your mind and soon taking over all your being.
“My call for a spiritual revolution is not a call for a religious revolution. Nor is it a reference to a way of life that is somehow other-worldly, still less to something magical or mysterious. Rather it is a call for a radical reorientation away from our habitual preoccupation with self. It is a call to turn toward the wider community of beings with whom we are connected, and for conduct which recognizes others' interests alongside our own”. ~Dalai Lama
The Calling is a change in your spiritual attitude, touched by Divine. The call may have come to being into your life through many ways. Maybe through an experience of faith, a revelation, a meditative practice, an awakening. A Calling is most certainly a true vocation that many times runs in parallel to our ordinary life path. A Ministerial Calling is above all, an invitation to serve others with compassion and a call for healing and hope at the soul level.
“Each of us has a unique part to play in the healing of the world.” ― Marianne Williamson, The Law of Divine Compensation: Mastering the Metaphysics of Abundance

“I believe there's a calling for all of us. I know that every human being has value and purpose. The real work of our lives is to become aware. And awakened. To answer the call.” ― Oprah Winfrey
