The Spiritual Law of Dharma

By: Deepak Chopra, M.D.

The Law of Dharma lays out the three commitments needed to align with spirit and fulfill your life’s purpose with effortless ease. The first commitment is the decision to seek your higher Self. You come into this world to discover for yourself that your essential nature is spiritual. Inside each of us is a god or goddess in embryo, waiting to be born and express our divinity.

The second component of the Law of Dharma is finding your unique talent or gift. The law says that there’s at least one thing you can do better than anyone else on the entire planet. When you’re completely absorbed in expressing your talent, time seems to stand still. You love what you’re doing and you enter the blissful state of timeless awareness.

To fulfill the third commitment of the Law of Dharma, ask yourself the questions, “How can I use my unique talent to serve humanity? How can I serve?” Answer that question and then put it into practice. When your creative expression helps your fellow human beings, you’re making full use of the Law of Dharma and experience perfect alignment with the infinite field of intelligence.

When you put the Law of Dharma into action, you no longer struggle or worry and instead begin to experience your life as an ecstatic expression of divinity. An ancient Vedic sage described the natural unfolding of spirit in these timeless words:

“I am the immeasurable potential of all that was, is, and will be, and my desires are like seeds left in the ground: they wait for the right season and then spontaneously manifest into beautiful flowers and might trees, into enchanted gardens and majestic forests.”
