19 - 5 Steps to Follow Your Dharma and Find Your Soul’s Purpose

A Way of Thinking

22-03-2023 • 33 mins

What would it be like to live and work as your true, authentic self?  What are your natural gifts and talents that are sitting by the wayside?

In this solo episode, I talk about 5 steps to follow your dharma and find your soul's purpose.  The idea of following your dharma may seem esoteric and out there, but it doesn't need to be.  It is a path of reconnecting with yourself and working with your natural gifts. It is living a life of authenticity and alignment with who you really are.  I talk about how to discover what your tendencies or gifts are, develop your intuition, and explore your options.  I also discuss the importance of finding gratitude for where you are now and enjoying all the steps in the journey.

Dharma is a Sanskrit term translated to "duty" or "righteousness".  It refers to your Soul's purpose or your true calling in life.  Following your dharma is a path to serving the world through your natural gifts.  My teacher Sri Dharma Mittra often says that it is better to follow your own dharma imperfectly than the follow someone else's perfectly. It is a path of following what is genuinely, authentically yours.  It is being one with your true nature.

This topic is very near and dear to my heart. I spent over a decade working in a career that wasn't suited to me and my natural tendencies.  It felt hard and draining to go against my true nature every day.  When I left that world behind I went on a journey to rediscover myself and who I really am and it led me on this beautiful path to discovering my own dharma.  My natural tendencies are building deep relationships and holding space for others to connect to themselves and be vulnerable.  The work I do today allows me to freely express these natural gifts and live in my dharma which has given me so much contentment and meaning.  It is a gift to follow my dharma and an even greater gift to share all I've learned to help others discover their dharma.
