If you’ve been thinking about your life’s purpose, this course is for you. At a certain point in our lives, and it happens at different times for everyone, we start questioning the meaning of life and what all of this is about. When this occurs, it is really a kind of awakening, seeing that there is something more to life than meets the eye. If you pay attention to this pull, and lean into it, there is an opportunity for tremendous growth. The thing is, there’s no one answer, and there’s no one person who can tell you the answer. You have to find it for yourself.
Especially now, with everything that is going on in the world, many of us are looking at our purpose anew. We’re having to reinvent ourselves, to somehow fit in with all the changes going on all around us. It’s a natural time to be questioning, and a natural time to look within and make our own changes.
We are not born by accident. We are here for a very specific reason. Over time we start to see that, and when we understand how the process works then we can participate in it more fully. One secret is that finding our purpose is one of the great purposes of our lives. And that purpose is probably something different than you think it is.
Our life experiences are pointing us towards it all the time if we just pay attention. But there are so many distractions in life that it’s easy to lose focus, to get off-path. The ancient wisdom of the four yogas, or the four dharmic paths that lead us to our purpose, are there to guide us, to give us a very clear direction to take. These four paths, or dharmas, are Bhakti: The path of love and devotion; Karma: The path of work and service; Jnana: The path of knowledge; and Raja: The path of meditation.
In this course we take a deep dive into each of these paths, and into the meaning that they can bring to our lives.
Knowing your purpose can help guide you to the right and perfect occupation for yourself. And, if you’re feeling like the job you’re in is not the one for you, it can help you to see your purpose in it anyway. You can live your purpose in any occupation. It’s not just about what you do, but more importantly it’s about how you do it, and what you learn from it.
