Dhar·ma or Purpose in Life Definition
/ˈdärmə/, noun: dharma
Dharma Definition in Buddhism: Cosmic order, in Hinduism: Right way of living. The Sanskrit meaning of Dharma: A way of living aligned with humanity according to your purpose in life. To explore your purpose in life, you need to
- Become aware of your unique
- experiences of the past
- dreams and wishes
- talents and skills
- passion and wild fun
- Find your purpose in life, based on your uniqueness, and
- Position your business, that it serves your purpose in life.
The key to happiness is freedom,
the key to freedom is courage!
To find your purpose in life requires an iterative approach. There is no direct path with fixed steps. You will have to apply a collection of tools. First comes the diagnosis, which requires patience from you, because many people indulge in a lifestyle that leads to a gentle stupor!
Be aware, that by finding your purpose in life, you are not at the finish, but at the starting point. If you have that, you have to change something, which includes courage! You will have to tackle obstacles. We have no other choice. We have to accept these obstacles to get there.
As you wish to have lived once,
You can already live now.
An essential prerequisite to finding your purpose in life is, calmness and slowness so that you can hear your inner voice.
- Don’t be distracted, because wherever the attention goes, the energy flows.
- Change viewpoints
- Stay in the flow
- Be playful
- Have fun and be silly
The true Dharma or purpose in life can be a result of one or a combination of the following areas:
- Learn and grow
- Create a legend
Each of these points independently can be meaningful. There is actually no shortcut to finding your purpose in life. But to get started, and to get a rough idea, what the purpose in life might be for you, do this Meditation. To prepare yourself, get something to write, a pencil and some paper, or your gratitude journal. You will need it right after the meditation.
Purpose in Life Meditation – Dharma Meaning
Get yourself in a comfortable position, sitting, or laying down. Begin to breathe slowly. Just relax and take a deep breath … in through your nose … and slowly exhale through your mouth.
Take in another deep breath and slowly exhale … in through your nose … and slowly exhale through your mouth.
Take one more deep breath and slowly exhale … in through your nose … and slowly exhale through your mouth.
As thoughts come to you, acknowledge them, and let them float away. Continue to relax and slowly breathe in… and slowly exhale … in through your nose … and slowly exhale through your mouth.
Allow yourself to sink deeper and deeper where you are, letting go of all distractions and thoughts. As you take another deep breath then slowly exhale, feel yourself growing very peaceful and centered.
Now imagine you have come across a beautiful celestial library filled with an amazing collection of books and manuscripts. This library will help you discover your life purpose. We all have a gift to share. We all have that one thing that makes us shine and that one thing that makes us truly unique. Today we are going to discover that one thing for you.
This incredible place has all the answers you need!
Let this place come into focus, and take a look around. As you walk you find yourself being led to a private room with beautiful chairs and glass tables. The room is warm and comfortable and filled with beautiful flowers. There is a cool pitcher of water filled with lemons and you decide to pour yourself a refreshing glass and take a sip. You notice a chair and you take a seat allowing the tension to slowly slip away.
You then discover someone has placed an old wooden box on the table in front of you, and you are intrigued. The box is beautifully carved and made out of rosewood, and it has a lovely aroma. The box has a label on top that says: “Your life purpose” and you can’t believe it because that is just what you are looking for.
Know that we are here today to help you discover your life purpose and we are going to ask your mind what this purpose is. When your mind reveals this purpose, it will manifest into the box where you can read it and discover for yourself what your life purpose is.
Think for a moment about your passions, and those things you absolutely love to do, beyond anything else in the world. Know that there is something you do better than anyone else on earth. No one comes into this life without a true purpose. Our lives are based around this purpose, and yours shall be revealed soon.
- your gift?
- that one thing you do that makes you shine?
- that thing that everyone is always telling you you’re great at?
- What if you woke up tomorrow and discovered you never had to work again, what would you do with your time? Imagine the possibilities that lie before you.
- Imagine a life without the struggle and the pain and the problems.
- fight for a great cause?
- write a wonderful novel?
- travel the world?
- volunteer your time or be a famous philanthropist?
- What would you do?
Think about this now and imagine it and make it real. Maybe you would start a new business, one that allowed you to pursue your passion every day. Think how amazing your life would be if you spent each moment making the world a better place?
Think about this now and ask your mind to reveal to you what your life purpose is and contemplate this for a little while. Just notice what first pops into your mind, and don’t spend too long thinking about this.
You suddenly realize the box on the table has been opened. There is a slip of paper in the box that has magically appeared. You take out this slip of paper but realize that the only words on it are written at the top; these words simply say:
“What is my true purpose?”
As you read this you suddenly realize that there are also instructions in the box, and these instructions read: ”Quiet your mind and all shall be revealed.”
Simply ask your mind to reveal once again what your true purpose is, and note ANYTHING that pops into your head. This can be a word, a phrase, a sentence, or even a picture, or a symbol. Keep asking yourself this question until you think of an answer that brings forth emotion.
The answer that shall be revealed will be your life’s purpose and you will recognize it instantly for the emotion, that will come forth.
Go ahead and clear your mind of all the clutter and try this now. Take a deep breath in and let out all the strain and tension and allow your mind to quiet. Trust your intuition and go with the first thing that comes to mind.
Now come back, and stretch yourself. Start moving your hand and feet. And write down what you found in the box, as well as all the emotions that came up in you while reading it.
Do this now!
