Finding Purpose Inside Yourself
August Turak (http://www.augustturak.com) is a fascinating individual who has been a seeker of spiritual wisdom his entire life and has been on a journey of finding purpose. He discovered truth and answers at Mepkin Abbey Monastary where he encountered the Trappist Monks. One of the most profound discoveries of his life is that we are all in search of transformation but the problem arises on how we achieve that goal. Many of us look for transformation outside of ourselves. We think fame or fortune or a list of credentials will change our state, but in fact all that ultimately changes is people's perception of us. If we want real transformation, then we need to change from the inside out. That is the job of the Holy Spirit. Jesus was very clear, that once you surrender your life to him, only then can you have real change. He said, "you must lose your life to find it". The Apostle Paul also said after he had encountered Christ..."It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me"
