You have come into the world at a crucial time. You have come to serve the world in its present needs. You have come to prepare for future generations.
Can all of this be meaningful to you personally now? Perhaps not, because you are working for the present and for the future.
You are working for the life that you will live and for lives that will follow yours. This is fulfilling to you now, for this is your gift that you have come to give.
Without pretense and without uncertainty, this will arise from you naturally and will give itself into the world. Weaving your life with other lives in a very specific way, it is meant to uplift you and all with whom you come in contact.
The Plan is greater than your personal ambition, and only your personal ambition can cloud your vision of what you must do. Be thankful, then, today that there is a role for you to fulfill in the world.
You have come into the world to fulfill this role—for your own fulfillment, for the advancement of your world and for service to your Spiritual Family.
