"One day, a voice speaks to you. You're in the middle of something, or you're contemplating something--something you feel you must undertake, because it is of primary importance and it's up to you to do it, it's a problem for you to solve. You've already made preparations, you're busy preparing. Then out of the blue you hear a voice, and the voice says, 'Your work lies elsewhere.' And for a second you glimpse the possibility of a mission you had never thought of before. And you know, too, that this task will not be without its dangers. It will derail you from the path you've taken, it will demand an extreme expenditure of energy, it will be the cause of a whole slew of misunderstandings, arguments, difficulties. Still, you must drop everything else. Your practical interests are seriously endangered by the new pursuit. And still, you must drop everything else, you must accept the difficulties, the extreme expenditure of energy, the sacrifice, the new sphere of activity, the prompting, and the unsolicited new mission.
There is no misunderstanding the peremptory tone of the voice. Those who hear clearly at such times and obey the command might possibly stumble and fall among the worldly dangers lurking in wait, but they will save their souls. Those who are deaf, comfortable or cowardly, will comfortably continue their path in life, but their souls will be harmed, restless, and discontented. The choice is yours, friends!"
