My spiritual teacher Chameli Ardagh emphasizes strikingly how important and necessary (!) it is to give yourself what you need in order to live your dharma full-heartedly. It might be a certain diet, it might be alone-time, it might be physical exercise, it might be singing, it might be journaling, it might be dancing … whatever … The commitment to take care of your own needs in any circumstances and to treat yourself lovingly is the foundation of a fulfilling life.
Why is it necessary? Not only important – no, necessary! It is necessary to nourish yourself, because living a full-hearted life dedicated to one’s dharma involves a lot of energies. There will be influences from outside. There will be unresolved issues from inside. If you want to full-heartedly give your gifts to the world, you will need to keep your heart clean, you will need to keep your energy fresh, you will need to be rooted in your very own being.
Who will give your gift to the world when you are dried out because you kept forgetting to nourish yourself?
My dream business is to support women, men, teens to blossom into their Dharma, the deep meaning of their being here on Earth… to support them in finding their Gift… to guide them to look behind the facades… to lead them into an investigation of the Mystery of Life and their unique thread woven into the Divine Choreography of Life…. to invite them to consciously live the deeper meaning of their life…
I am doing this business on a local level already, now I am striving to give my gifts internationally: I listen with my ears and my heart. I aim to see behind the facade and mirror the greatness in each person. With mindfulness I speak words from my heart that allow for a new perspective on life experiences – thus the red thread becomes visible and tangible.
I love to witness each person flourishing when they connect with the deeper purpose of their life.
I envision a world where people live their calling consciously. In this world each of us is rooted in one’s deep purpose and thus serving the common good with one’s gifts. With this foundation we feel satisfied and happy which in turn provides us with a healthy and sustainable life style. Each individual consciously living the deeper life purpose contributes to a healthy and prospering planet.
You can perceive the fragrance already before entering this sacred dharma* garden. Take a deep inhale and savor the melody of flavors of all the beautiful colorful flowers. Each flower is a dharma* blossoming in one of us.
I am happy to welcome you here in the dharma* garden. Please make yourself comfortable. Rest as long as you wish. Let your roots grow here. Every flower needs roots to blossom. Then – in your time – you will start to blossom into your own dharma*.
* dharma is a Sanskrit word with different meanings. I use it to point to a deeper meaning of our being, our personal path in the vast mystery, the red thread through our lives, our steps in the cosmic choreography. Often the words vocation and calling are used in a similar way.
