This text is very powerful & true... for it is precisely how we discover our purpose! When, if attuned to it, the "I" begins to become aware!
"It may be that"... these words are about core purpose, with both an OUTWARD and INWARD nature. Of the former, "when we no longer know what to do we've come to our real work;" and, of the latter, "when we no longer know which way to go we've begun our real journey."
Of my particular purpose, one side I can not speak on and the other is yet very silent, simple and sweet.
Overall, I believe this saying is about peace, meditation, silencing thought, recognition, preparation, prayer, elevation, being, centering, energizing, spirituality, awakening. Perfection.
