Having the courage to
give your highest gift is the issue.
There is no security in doing something for a living
when you are dying inside while doing it. That is taking
care of the body at the expense of the soul.

And a
withering soul cannot help but produce a withering body.
So do not think you are “taking care of yourself” by
killing your spirit to keep your body alive.
How long will you put off what you are dying to do?

Neale Donald Walsch
