Your dharma is another name for your soul path.
When you follow your dharma, you are following your true soul path: the real reason why you are here on this earth in this lifetime.
The overall dharma for everyone, of course, is to expand in consciousness. To expand our understanding during this life in which we are soul in human container.
But aside from soul growth, which is our over-arching dharma, there is also a more personal dharma that each of us must identify and follow.
We often talk about this as life’s purpose, or life's calling, or even destiny.
To follow your dharma, is to follow the destiny that you as a soul chose. Every soul has a personal destiny, a personal dharma.
But how do you know what your dharma is?
Well… it’s what you are drawn to do.
It’s what you’d without payment, without reward, without recognition. Without society telling you it’s what you should be doing—or that it’s right or good or valuable…
It's what you want to do all the time, no matter what. That's your dharma.
And in some cases, it’s what you’re drawn to do but not doing yet.
Sometimes a clue to your dharma can be found by looking back to the age of 10 or 11: what you loved doing most of all, what you loved thinking about and working on your own… this is likely to be where your dharma is.
Sometimes a clue to your dharma can be found by recognizing what you are deeply interested in now—whether you have allowed yourself to do this or not.
If you know your dharma, do it.
If you don’t, ask the Universe to show you.
Simply ask to be shown your true soul path.
And then follow what comes next… the signs and synchronicities that will reveal your true path.
