‘It is better to live your own destiny imperfectly than to live an imitation of somebody else's life with perfection.’ ~ The Bhagavad Gita
Everything in nature expresses itself in it’s own unique way. Flowers, plants, trees, animals... they don’t try to be something, they just are. And by being who they are, and doing what they are meant to do, they naturally serve other plants and animals synergistically as part of the eco-system.
So I ask myself ~ Am I living my destiny?
Everyone has a unique talent or gift. Our purpose in life is to express our gifts and by so doing, we will then naturally be in service to others. Our gifts creatively expressed in service to others aligns us with our soul’s purpose; our ‘dharma’.
An oak tree is destined to become an oak tree.
And a rose is a rose is a rose....
So what are you destined to become? What’s your dharma?
You can ask yourself ~ What are my unique talents and gifts? What do I love doing that takes me to a place of timeless awareness?... And, how can I serve others by doing what I love?
