You see life has a tricky way of convincing us that we need to do certain things to be happy or look a certain way to find our other half, or accomplish that yoga pose to be a true ‘yogi’ (whatever that means) or make a certain amount of money to live the life we have been waiting for.
However, what life has been continuing to teach me and what I truly have faith in, is that we offer and receive the most from this life when we step into the current and believe in the worthiness of our own gifts and our own talents; the ones we were born with, the ones we were meant to share with the world.
In the end, though, it all comes down to one thing: our willingness to claim our space in this life as humans on this planet at this time. When we accept our divinity, we no longer question whether we are worthy, because we know that we are meant to be here to fulfill a particular purpose, a purpose that no one other than us can fulfill.
So I continued to probe, “What do you think your dharma is?”
“My dharma?” she asked.
“Your purpose,” I clarified.
After a few moments of pause, she replied, ”I don’t know! It makes me want to cry that I’m 32 and I still don’t know…I’ve been searching for my purpose and …”
“Honestly, Al, I know it sounds ridiculous but I think maybe, maybe it might just be to be a mom.”
And then she told me, “I love you!” And I responded that I loved her too.
After in so little words we exchanged our mutual affection for the other I responded, “being a mom…that is a start and if you ask me, it’s not ridiculous, it’s a beautiful purpose."
Remember, it’s not about evaluating ourselves or our purpose as worthy or unworthy, so much as it’s about accepting that we have been called here to serve and taking the steps required to listen and respond to what our lives are asking us to do.
Your work is to discover your work and then, with all your heart, to give yourself to it.
