Clear Purpose


Written by Hugh Prather (1938-2010), an American writer, lay minister, and counselor. This is an excerpt from his book “The Quiet Answer.”

Ultimately, we cannot make a mistake, for God has provided a purpose to all we have done even though our motives may have been insincere at the time. Love uses all to bless all. Our progress is seen not in what we do but in what we perceive our goal to be. Either we assign our ego’s objective or God’s purpose, and that is determined by what we choose to consult within us at the time each decision is made. It is impossible not to consult something. If we think that our experience is our guide, we will not believe that the still and present urgings of Love direct us.
