How Do You Serve Your Soul’s Purpose?

Published on November 27, 2011 by   ·   No Comments


“First, become clear what your duty or purpose is in life. Second, learn to love it.”
Swami Rama

I find this quote by Swami Rama really embodies the essence of what a Dharma Code is. These two questions help clarify what Swami Rama is expressing:

  • What is a Dharma Code?
  • How do I use it?

Answering these two questions will aid your understanding of the Dharma Code as Rod discusses in Chapter 6 in his book, The Four Desires.

What is a Dharma Code?
Dharma Code is:

  • “Your unique life purpose.”
  • ” [The] life course that your soul aspires to; the one you were meant to follow.”
  • “A statement that endures and remains constant though all of your life’s circumstances.”

These quotes from The Four Desires clearly state what a Dharma Code is. A Dharma Code is like your soul’s mission statement. Remember that a mission statement is used by companies and organizations to clearly state their main purpose.  It helps the company to make overall goals and to guide decision-making. The Dharma code is essentially a mission statement, and you are the organization.

I personally love the story Rod tells of his eye opening dharma moment, in a lecture by his first teacher Mani Finger.
“You are responsible for your life…the sooner you see how you have determined your fate, the sooner and more completely you will have the life you want.”

Your Dharma code also is a call to action; it brings to light that which will inspire you to take responsibility for your life.  When we take responsibility for our own life, from the alignment of our soul’s purpose, our actions, decisions and goals are more clear and we start to embody that enduring happiness.

How do I use it? Learn to love it?
The advice to learn to love our life’s purpose is priceless.
We can have this code and be content with it, but how we really hold ourselves up to that mission,  I think, is even more powerful than the actual statement.
