Ask yourself questions to discern your life's opus

As Thomas Moore toured last year to promote his book, A Life at Work: The Joy of Discovering What You Were Born to Do, we posted links to blogs of people who attended his sessions and summarized his presentations. We missed this one, Thomas Moore Lecture Notes, posted 7 April 2008 by Patricia. At the end of her post, Patricia writes,

"How do you find your heart’s desire?
Try asking some of these questions and examining them honestly with yourself:

What does the soul want?
What is needed in me?
What is wanted?

What is my nature?
What did I want as a child? (We can get hints from our childhood)
What did I fear as a child?
What are my anxieties?"
