A. Let suppose you’ve got something special from your parents which you hear you can do a lot of nice things with as you please. Now you are wondering what you can or should do with it. In order to know what the use of it is, you should learn the nature and the characteristics of it first of all; what it is like, how large it is, whether it is portable or not, what it is made of and so on. When you have enough knowledge about it, you can use it as you please.
Likewise, if you are anxious to know what you are supposed to do with your life, try to know what you are, what your life is above all. Trying to know what you are supposed to do with your life without knowing the essence of your life is no better than putting the cart before the horse.
