What did you do to find your dream and passion in life?

Currently I realized that I have no dream or passion in my life. Maybe that's why I felt lost, like I have no where to go, no destination at all.

When I was younger, I had passions and dreams. Like fashion, architecture, interior design, crafting, biology and so much more. I also dreamed to be a fashion designer, architecture, doctor and like lots other kids, be an astronaut.

But now, when I think of those (my old passions and dreams), its no longer give me the excitement feeling.

Maybe you guys can help me and maybe other people who still on their way to find their own dream and passion in their life.

Thanks :)

    Oct 10 2013: Widya Halim... Passions have always been a gift of God. Based on our residual karma of the moment... we dreamt, pursued our inner passions! As we got more engrossed in day-to-day activities of life, we got farther and farther away from our true inner passions... dreams!

    When young, a child I had a deep-rooted desire to see and meet God in this very life. Totally unaware what was meant by God Almighty, I wanted to know everything relating to God! By 13 years of age... my simple inner desire, passion turned to firm conviction. No matter what, in this very life I shall see and meet God.

    Inherently I started travelling path of pure spirituality by remaining truthful always and ever in all walks of life. By remaining truthful all the time... I could hear the sweet small inner voice of my soul atman that seemed to come from within our heart! Before I could reach God... I had to have absolute faith in God Almighty. Furthermore, I believed in the fact that we were primarily a spirit, a soul atman... that undertook journey in human form.

    No matter what the travails in my life... my search for God never got lost in trivialities of life. My goal of life always was clear... reach God in the shortest possible time! 25 years of yoga meditation, by pursuing path of absolute truthfulness all the time... I finally reached God in the wee hours of third of August 1993 at 37 years of age. This is my last manifestation on mother earth... 8.4 millionth manifestation, last in cosmic life cycle!

    Path of spirituality is best detailed in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism. More on BhagavadGita - http://www.bhagavadgitasummary.com . A direct dictate from God Almighty "Truce with my Inner Self" is very enlightening - http://www.godrealized.org/truce_with_my_inner_self.html
