What must you accomplish?

Found this great little qoute on Jon Owen's blog, a great guy working with the poor and marginalised in the Springvale area with UNOH. Don't really know what to do with it, but just thought it was interesting.

'Here are some fresh thoughts emerging from the healing profession in Europe (Sourced from Sweet, L. (2005). Summoned to Lead).

Spirituality has a role in healing in Europe. A doctor will say to cancer patient:
“You have cancer. Do you want me to heal you, or do you want me to help you complete the circle of your life?”

If the patient opts for healing, then the doctor says:
"Then tell me your mission. Why is it that you must live? Specifically, what must you accomplish?" '
