Living Our Dharma

What is our dharma, our life purpose, our soul’s mission?  How are we living our truth and sharing the gifts we are here to share?

Obviously, to live our dharma we first need to know what it is.  Maybe we already know or maybe we are in the process of discovery or expanding our awareness on what that means for us.

The answers come from asking the questions.  We have the answers already.  They lie inside us and are discovered when we connect with our inner guidance.  We will find also that we attract guides in all forms to support and assist us.

The age-old questions we face as we progress on our life journey are Who am I? and Why am I here?

This is a good place to start.  Even if we do not fully know, start with reflecting inward and answering these questions from where we are at.

After we discover what we already know from within, following up with additional questions will help us discover more about our dharma.  Some good questions may include the following:  What brings me joy?  When do I feel most alive?  What am I most passionate about?  In what ways do I enjoy serving others?

Ultimately, we will discover that what makes us come alive can be used in service of others.  These are the things our soul is calling us to do!  Consciously choosing to do these things on a regular basis is living our dharma.

One of my favourite quotes is:
Ask not what the world needs.  Ask what makes you come alive… then go do it.  Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.  ~ Howard Thurman

This aliveness comes from living our dharma.  It is our way of shining for all to see!

This Sunday, September 28th, at One Place To Be we are having a day retreat called Living Your Dharma.  As a group, we will embark on this self-discovery journey together.  With meditation, yoga and journaling exercises, we will connect with our inner guidance about living our dharma.  There are a couple spots remaining, so if you are in the Picton, Ontario area, we would love to have you join us on this magical adventure!
