What is that one thing you’re here to do?

Everyone has that gift of listening to their intuition to find that they have to offer, and what they have to give to their fellow citizens, their communities, to their family, or to whatever organizations they belong to.

– Serafina Gallente

The actors and scriptwriters in Hollywood are often influenced by their Southern California environs, their therapists, and their dreams. So, inspiring messages sometimes slip into movies. In the comedy City Slickers, Curly dispenses some wisdom with just one finger ominously held upright:

Curly: Do you know what the secret of life is?

[holds up one finger]

Curly: This.

Mitch: Your finger?

Curly: One thing. Just one thing. You stick to that and the rest don’t mean shit.

Mitch: But, what is the “one thing?”

Curly: [smiles] That’s what *you* have to find out.

The first question is, how can we each discover what that one thing is for us?
