1. Take some time to write and write and write. Not for someone else to read. Just ask yourself, what are the many things I care about in the world?
2. The next thing is finding out how you can work in service of your concerns in a way that makes you happy.
3. Lastly, it might be good to write a list of what conditions you need to keep you comfortable in the world. Do you need a lot of money or are you ok with just having your basic needs met? Do you care if you are in hot weather or cold?
4. The next step is beginning looking for situations that fit all these criteria. When you've thought of the things that fit, you should get in touch with people who are already doing it. Then ask them whether it makes them happy and fulfilled in the way you want to be happy and fulfilled.
This is great advice for those of us at any age who want to put our passions into action and make the most of our efforts to create a just, compassionate, sustainable world for all, and a great reminder that the happiness and meaning in our lives doesn't just fall into our laps; we make it happen through our actions.
