From #StephenCope “The Great Work of Your Life” Merton here catches exactly the spirit of Thoreau and Anthony and Tubman — and all the others. These great exemplars of dharma each took a craftmanlike view toward life: Do your daily duty, and let the rest go. Polk away systematically at your little calling. Tend the garden a little bit every day. You do not have to exhaust yourself with great acts. Show up for your duty, for your dharma. Then let it go.” 
What is your little calling? 

What makes you feel on fire with purpose?

What is your gift to the world?

What actions do you need to take to make it all real?
