This came from a horoscope from Omega Institute, but I think it really speaks well to identifying one’s passion or Dharma (life’s purpose):

In much the same way that homes of many earlier eras were designed to be oriented on the hearth or the kitchen, the way to organize your life is from the center outward. To do this, you’ll first need to determine what the center is. I will give you a clue: It’s where the heat is coming from. It’s also related to the theme, activity, or mission you keep coming back to, even if you’ve made other plans. Said yet another way, it’s where you reach for the sensation of home on our wild, unpredictable planet. This is a powerful spot in your consciousness. There’s a chance that your commitment and passion may be veiled by layers of emotional material—denial, guilt, shame, or some form of uneasiness. None of those can stop you, and it would be helpful if you make peace with that and therefore take away some or all of the power that those feelings seem to have. You have a right to devote yourself to what matters, and I suggest being vigilant toward anyone who would try to deny you that, or who has done so in the past.

What is the theme, activity, or mission you keep coming back to, even if you’ve made other plans?

Where do you reach for the sensation of home on our wild, unpredictable planet? For me, that’s downward dog on my yoga mat. But also the classroom.
