The Spiritual Law of Dharma
I am finding greater happiness each day now that I am pursuing my passion for writing.
I know that writing, creative communications, as well as, seeking and propagating what I see as truth are my passions. I know because I can’t stop thinking about them. Ideas pop into my head throughout the day, and in the middle of the night. I spend hours each day at the computer posting and researching, often not getting much sleep, and letting eating totally skip my mind.
One of the biggest indicators that I am pursuing my purpose, is when I lose all senses of space and time. This happens when I’m are deep into an effort, and look at my watch and surprisingly notice that 6 hours have passed, when it seemed like only an hour.
Another indicator is not being able to pull away from a project of passion. Like everyone, I have hundreds of items to get to on my task list. But I always gravitate to that same ole task, diligently working it, ignoring the others. No matter how far behind I may get on other ‘to do’s’, I repeatedly go back to the one task that gives me the most joy.
These repeated escapes from reality into manifesting my vision is an indicator that I may have discovered or am discovering my Dharma.
Dharma is our purpose in life, with the belief that we were all created with a unique talent or ability to offer to the world.
But it’s not a passion that is pursued blindly. It is pursuit while adhering to other spiritual laws, and doing so with a sincere intention to help others, with this special talent or ability.
The reason that finding your purpose in life is so important, is that finding your purpose is synonymous with finding happiness. We’re all meant to be happy, and finding our Dharma is the only path to lasting happiness.
So, follow your Dharma no matter what it is, no matter how much you may get discouraged.
Remember, living your Dharma is the only way to optimal and permanent happiness.
