You came to earth for a reason, and you even wanted it. You don’t remember it, but before you were born, you consciously chose to live where you were going to be born. Each incarnation gives you the opportunity to become a better person. It is partly through suffering that you learn the most important things in life. Do you despair today that you did not have better parents or that you were not born with a silver spoon in your mouth? Tell yourself that you chose it but you don’t remember it.
Fulfilling Your Dharma
The concept of dharma originated in India and took on a different meaning when it was taken up by Buddhism. In Buddhism, dharma is the Buddha’s teaching, the wisdom that comes from it. Originally, dharma is the duty of each person to fulfill in order to be in accordance with the laws of the universe. So, to put it simply, a person born into a farming family must fulfill his dharma by becoming the best farmer he can be. This is actually a corruption of the teaching of the Hindu texts. It is this (intentional) misinterpretation that has led to caste society and its rigidity. In reality, doing dharma means acting according to your inclinations (or gunas), your natural qualities to be the best person you can be. For example, if you are a perfectionist and like to work with your hands, you should probably choose a craft that allows you to express your qualities to the fullest.
Rediscovering Your Dharma
When you came to earth, you forgot your past lives and are now immersed in Maya (illusions). You have received education from your parents who sometimes deny or neglect your natural talents. To reconnect with your dharma, you will have to search deep within yourself and find your true self.
Try Different Activities
If you are hesitant and don’t know where to go, you will have to face reality and try various activities, whether they are sports, cultural or artistic. The more you test the more you will know where to go. Often, you don’t have to force yourself to experiment with things because you will have naturally shown a penchant for an activity. From an early age, you may have shown an interest in communicating with others, writing stories, singing or helping animals. Keep these natural tendencies in mind as you move forward.
Fulfill your dharma
The importance of finding our life’s purpose is an age-old question that many of us struggle to answer. However, once we find our reason for being on this earth and give it our all, we are on the right track to becoming a better person.
It can be difficult to find purpose in life, as life often presents us with trials and challenges that can be hard to come to terms with. However, it is important to remember that each of us is born into a certain family or social context. Though these environments may be chaotic or dysfunctional, there are lessons to be learned from the experiences that are thrown our way.
Life presents us with many experiences, both good and bad, and it can be difficult to find the silver lining. By taking time to reflect and become mindful of our experiences, we can begin to see the value in all of them. Every moment presents us with an opportunity to learn, grow, and become better people.
However, we must be careful not to define ourselves solely by our qualities and experiences. Rather, we must look to our values and beliefs to give our lives deeper meaning and purpose. When we determine which values are meaningful to us and strive to live a life that is true to them, we become better people.
Therefore, when searching for the answer to the age-old question of finding our life’s purpose, it is important to look beyond our current circumstances and evaluate our values and beliefs. Once we have found our purpose and commit to fulfilling it, we can become the best versions of ourselves, no matter our circumstances or background.
