later, I still get chills when I think about the day my eight year old son gave me these three tips. The night
before, I had completed a fire walk – that’s where you walk barefoot over very hot

Never Give Up, Always Keep Going”.
I probably had a tear in the corner of my eye at that point. I

HOW TO FIND YOUR PURPOSE:
H.H. Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji on how to find your purpose:
Did I help people today?
Did I give selflessly of myself or not?
Do I feel closer to God?
Did I do anything against my own deep knowledge of what is right?
If you are on the right path, you will experience happiness."
