Right reasons

One useful bit of information and revealing bit of knowledge that I gained while at Kotagiri was the fact that in the formation process, what matters most is the current motivation and not the initial one.  It makes a lot of sense, given the fact that most join the Seminary or convent for very varied and sometimes 'not the best' intention.  However over the years, this intention to continue or motivation to carry on undergoes changes and one blooms in to a mature individual.  It is also possible that one may join with the best of intentions and may end up continuing for all the wrong reasons!  Hence to evaluate a persons vocational strength is to rely more on the current motivation than on what was or will be.

In line with this, what comes to my mind right now is one of the last lines of the movie, Love comes softly ... "If I've to stay, I've to stay for the right reasons."

  1. Congratulations and thanks over the refection over the reflective processes, around " Why am I here", to be aked by the vetern Bernard, and the novice, alike, everyday. The current motivation is a continuum-Spiral, in which this current point is like a Arhemendian point of the vocational journey. " That is it".
