 All holistic arts and sciences lead here:

As your powers of discernment improve, you begin to question your use of time. Is it productive, or meaningful?


Are you aligned with your purpose or do you need to change direction?


Do you have a mission? What do you stand for?


What are your strengths?


What do feel called to do when you have the time?

(not necessarily a career but a daily, weekly, or monthly habit?)



During what activities, do you lose your sense of time?



Your vision. What can you picture for your future that utilizes your talents?



Holistic arts and sciences lead you to your authentic self.

There is no greater quest.
