Seek the wisdom that will untie your knot.
Seek the path that demands your whole being. ~ Rumi
I imagine you are intimately aware of all the pains, disappointments and struggles you've encountered along your path. You also know that your life is not yet fully aligned with your dharma. You still encounter frustrations, sorrows and discouragement at every turn.
You have big desires, hopes, and visions for your self and your one precious life. But why haven't they arrived yet? Why is it so hard to both live the life you love and do meaningful work in this world?
Are you losing hope? Is your desire fading?
The real question you should be asking yourself is:
"What is keeping me from doing what I love?!"
I know it isn't for lack of hope, dreams and desire. You have plenty of these!
So why haven't these visions of yours fully materialized? Why aren't you doing work that inspires you and the world? Work that aligns with your passions and purpose- everyday?!
The answers to these questions are vital! These answers will help you activate your next dharmic step.
The truth is, you have blockages, obstacles, old paradigms and limiting beliefs that are standing in your way. These old stories are keeping you from living your gifts, and sharing them with others.
These old beliefs are keeping you from your dharma.
In my next Dharmic steps, I will address these issues and your limiting beliefs head on!
But first, you need to start putting some of the pieces together that you've been gathering. This process requires willingness, courage and action.
Don't hold back! I encourage you to fully go for it! I'm cheering you on and I encourage your powerful action steps! These steps are leading you somewhere very important and truly powerful. Don't skip these steps!!
Here's to your willingness, courage and your truly precious life!
Your dharma is not something outside of yourself. The biggest mistake you are likely making with your dharma, is thinking it is a destination beyond you. The truth is, your dharma is not something outside of yourself. It is likely hidden in the day to day tasks you perform. Your dharma is hiding! It is waiting patiently for you to discover it, awaken and activate it with awareness and action steps.
It is likely hidden in the day to day tasks you perform. Your passions are hidden within the function and formality of your actions. No doubt some adjustments need to be made in order for increasing your fulfillment, but don't discount the fact that you are likely already aligned with your dharma and purpose in some capacity.
Don't believe me? Follow these action steps below to see what I mean. In my next step, I will be sharing a podcast to help you identify what is holding you back from moving forward with your wild and passionate life! But first, I want to help you make some connections.
Where Purpose, Passion and Function Meet.
1) Start by making a list of your passions. What are your greatest joys and what activities bring you deep happiness? What do you wish you could do every day? What inspires you? What are you most passionate about in life? List these vital resources for your life. Don't hold back.
2) Next, make a list of your everyday activities. Everything from cooking to cleaning. Start with morning duties all the way to bedtime. Make sure chores are on the list and also the ways you are giving to others.
3) Look for connections and nuances in your lists. How do your passions and daily activities align with these categories:
Creativity & Creating
Nurturing & Nourishing
Healing & Vitality
Guiding & Counseling,
Spirit & Wisdom
Some of your activities may not seem to align with any of these categories! It may feel like a stretch, but even a chore like cleaning can be an act of "creating" and "spirit". It's an activity that is creating a clean space and making your home more sacred- depending on your intention. Attending to others and their needs can fall into any of these categories, so really listen to what themes are most alive for you in each of your roles. These are important resources to be aware of. We will use your discoveries for further exploration in my coming Dharmic Steps, so keep harvesting your list and making connections.
4) Circle themes and connections you see in your list of passions and your list of daily chores. What category appears to have the most circles? Where do you seem to align your actions most of the time? What other connections and conclusions can you come to?
5) Harvesting Questions. Answer these questions in your journal:
How do your passions and everyday activities align? Where is there crossover? Where do you wish there was more? What categories are the most prevalent on both of your lists?
Your final step of this process is to ask three people who are close to you what they see as your top three strengths and assets. This will likely give you an idea of how others see you from the outside. Things that you may be missing about yourself! How do these qualities relate to the above categories?
You'll need this list and your discoveries for Dharmic Step #3 and I'll be sharing a special podcast with you to deepen your process.
Share your discoveries and questions with me below!
