“From the beginning, I had a sense of destiny, as though my life was assigned to me by fate and had to be fulfilled. This gave me an inner security, and, though I could never prove it to myself, it proved itself to me. I did not have the certainty, it had me. “ – Carl Jung
Many of us have become aware that our current reality in the time of this virus outbreak, isolation and also, our climate crisis is the universe and earth-shaking us up in order for us to move into divine alignment. We know that we collectively need to make the move away from capitalism and our greed of taking more than we need from the earth, from our bodies and each other. We understand that our current reality is a reflection of the way we have been collectively living. We have seen this shared and written about beautifully by many wonderful writers, teachers, creatives, etc.
The beauty of our current reality is that it highlights our oneness. We can no longer separate our pain from another. This may be something that many of us in this community may already know, but it makes it so much more real. We are learning the importance of working in alignment with the Earth and of being of service to ourselves, the collective & the earth.
But… how can we make this change?
I believe we have all incarnated in this time for a reason.
This ‘reason’ is our dharma. The word Dharma has many translations & meanings some of which include “way of righteousness” or “that which contains or upholds the cosmos”. It is a spiritual principle that sees everything as having a purpose in life everything from animals to humans. The thread that connects us with the divine and our intuition. The sooner we connect to understanding our dharma the sooner we can move towards alignment and fulfillment, which normally coincides with living in harmony with the earth and others. Our society is upheld by the dharma performed (or not performed) by each one of us.
Basically, the more of us living our divine path or dharma the greater the change for the collective.
Why connect with your Dharma?
This is your divine purpose, when you connect with it, it is all-consuming – in the best kind of way! It lights you up in ways you could not imagine, it is like an endless thirst for knowledge or a deep connection that brings you on an endless adventure, something that gets your attention and keeps you coming back for more again and again. This passion never runs out as it is in alignment with your soul’s calling and being poured to you from source.
Living your dharma brings meaning, abundance & fulfillment to your life. Everything falls into place. It becomes your most important relationship; of you & your Dharma because you know it is what you are here to do so you do everything you can to fulfill it! It makes you feel more whole as a person, it becomes a way of sacred living, an anchor to guide you.
Now, I know that knowing all of this is great but also extremely challenging, especially in these times and if you are not quite on the path to your dharma just yet. So, I will say first and foremost take care of yourself in this time. Do not rush or put pressure on yourself. Make sure that you are embodying everything that you may feel the call to preach or teach! Do all of your self-care rituals you would recommend to another; basically make yourself your first client. I say this because I have made these mistakes myself, pushed too much and ended up not taking care of myself.
When we embody what we want to share it all flows so. Much. Easier. I promise!
Taking care of you uplifts the collective’s vibration and you can then be of service to others.
