Letter to a Courageous Soul

Dear Courageous Soul,

The moment you accept what troubles you’ve been given,
 the door will open. (Rumi)

I miss you. And I miss your enthusiasm – in the world – and for the world. I don’t write this to cause any action from your side. I just feel that your flavor is missing in the world. The world really misses you. Your spark. Your spice. Your smile. Your love. Your uniqueness deeply and completely expressed by you.

I am completely convinced that we cannot be “off” our dharma. We all live our vocation in every single minute of our incarnation. But we can live it half-heartedly or immersed in enthusiasm.

Chameli Ardagh once quoted the Mexican shamans:

When you loose your joy, you loose your power.

So I ask you: Why are you here? What does the Divine want to express uniquely through you? What is your golden trace of beauty and love?

Let’s surf the wave together.

The wound is where the light enters. (unknown)

Yes, yes, yes! Broken. Yes. Wounded. Yes. Fearful. Yes.

And: If the brokeness will never go away, if the wounds will never go away, if fear will never go away – will you still be holding back your gift and your enthusiasm?

I miss you on a very very deep level. A level beyond words. A level beyond face to face meetings and conversations. I really miss you – in a way I will never be able to express.

Eternally connected in love,
Uli, your Soul Sister

Your dharma is your uniqueness

huna_grafik_neuThe 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?
