What do you do – on a daily basis – to feed your dharma?
To feel the deep longing in one’s heart and to take a decision is one thing. The other thing is to stay with it. To commit to what you really want on a daily basis. To feed your dharma plant every day. To practice dedication. To stay with your commitment.
How do you feed your dharma plant? Do you water it? Do you offer it sunshine? How much do you show your love to it?
It is a very personal thing how water – sunshine – love look like. It might be that you light a candle for this longing in your heart. It might be that you exercise in the fresh air. It might be that you ask for support from experts. It might be that you get up and rent an office of your own. It might be that you take a nap after lunch. It might be that you write a blog post. It might be that you put a dharma symbol onto your altar. It might be that you write your dharma sentence on a piece of paper and put it on your fridge door. It might be that you take singing classes. It might as well be something completely different…
So let me ask you again: How do you feed your dharma?
The word dharma points to what is often called the cosmic order. It does not mean that you are a puppet on a string carrying out some plan made up by some higher being.
This term rather wants to remind us that we are inseparable from the invisible mystery that holds all-that-is. You and me and every form – we all are embodiments of the vast consciousness striving to birth itself over and over again. Your dharma is your “role” in the Divine Choreography of Life, your spice, your flavor, your uniqueness, your thread, your specific vibration, your fingerprint, your unique set of qualities, your medicine, your gift.
There are so many words we use to (try to) describe this ineffable unique quality of our being. They all show us the way to our own divine nature, our interconnectedness with all-that-is.
Rather than making up the meaning of our lives, we could ask the Mystery of Life: How do you want to express yourself through me today? How do you want to use my unique flavor for the good of all beings? What song do you want to play on the instrument that I am?
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.
