What Is Dharma by Silvia Mordini
This idea of dharma—‘knowing why we are here’—requires action to move us forward. Literally translated, the word karma means ‘action.’ It comes from the Sanskrit root ‘kr,’ which means ‘to act.’
The action of karma includes the movement of our bodies and the movement of our thoughts. However, the paradox is that we will never know for sure what our purpose is without at least testing the choices that drive our karma.
Every day, we have opportunities to take action. Fiery situations arise that help us burn off some karma. Our actions can prompt better questions to ask ourselves regarding our true dharma.
Instead of Seeking Answers, Live the Questions
Often, people come to yoga hoping to find answers in the poses. The poses, however, are the questions.
