Q. How do I discover my deepest desire?
FT. SISTERS OF MARY MORNING STAR
Sometimes it is very obvious what our deepest desire is, but not always. We desire most what we love most. We need to think about what makes us really happy, what brings us greatest joy, not an exterior joy but interior joy. This joy is linked to peace. When, and in what situation, am I really happy and really myself? What activity or object, or who, is most important for me? We should try to answer these questions for ourselves. If we have a deep spiritual desire it may take time to understand it. Here prayer can help a lot. We must ask God to help us see clearly, to show us the right way and the right choices to make. Faithful prayer and recollection, spending time in silence, enable us to discover that which is still hidden.
