Welcome to another edition of this week’s Life Tools as we explore awakening your inner teacher!
The best teachers help you awaken to the essence already resting inside you. They help you translate universal knowledge into personal wisdom. They help you see things in a new light. They channel the universe and then step out of the way.
We commonly use the word dharma to “mean purpose in life.” My dear friend & mentor Dr. David Simon taught me another meaning of the word — “essence.” Your essence is the heart of your existence. Your dharma is the essence of you who are. From your essence arise your intentions. Your intentions drive your thoughts. Your thoughts give rise to your words. Your words are translated into actions – your actions into habits of behavior. Your habits of behavior manifest as your contribution to the world. This is your dharma.
When we are “in our dharma”, we are aligning our intentions, thoughts, words, and actions with our essence. This requires the power of commitment – making a contract between our body, mind, and soul. When you empower your intentions with commitment, your actions, words, thoughts, and feelings align with the universe providing unconditional support to all of your choices. This brings deeper fulfillment to you and those affected by your choices.
If you are looking to take your practice to the next level, or share the passion that burns inside you, consider finding a teacher to walk this sacred journey with you. To help you open your heart & get closer to your dharma with greater grace and greater ease. Here is an easy 4-step process to help you deepen your connection to your own essence and purpose:
- Meditate every morning & ask the sacred questions: what am I grateful for? Who am I grateful for?
- Ask a close friend or relative, “What do you think is my best quality?”
- Ask yourself at the end of the day “What did I love to do so much that time stood still?”
- As your head hits the pillow at night, ask yourself, “ How can I help others, heal others, serve others using my best qualities?”
Living our dharma is all about translating our best intentions into meaningful choices. If the passion is burning inside you, take the next step to flow your essence into the world. Everyone around you will be richer for your contribution. In the meantime, I’ll see you in the gap!!
Do you ever feel the urge to deepen your meditation practice? To study the masters in a deep, nourishing environment? To challenge your soul? To immerse yourself and share the gift of meditation with others?
Students in my Masters of Wisdom & Meditation Teacher Training attend for so many different reasons. And each finds a connection to the teachings and to one another that transcends any explanation. My dream continues to be to work closely with my students and impart this timeless wisdom to you in a loving, caring, experiential, interactive and practical way.
If you are ready for a life-changing experience, I am excited to be your guide and share with you what I have learned from some of the most profound Masters of our time. Each of my teacher trainings is an intimate experience to ensure a deep, powerful connection and a supportive learning environment.
My intention is to flow through a process that is profound, eye-opening, inspirational, and heart-opening — to deeply imbue you with these teachings; help you cultivate a powerful daily practice; and instill you with the confidence to comfortably share these teachings with others.
I offer a convenient monthly payment plan to help you plan your journey, and rooms at the Meditation Nest are available on a first-come-first-serve basis. Let’s journey together starting this June, and transform the world by transforming ourselves!!!
