The great work of your life : summer reads

Stephen Cope is the director of the Kripalu Institute for Extraordinary Living (and who I had the pleasure of meeting and listening to at the NPF/Kripalu Parkinson’s yoga retreat in June!). His book The Great Work of Your Life is a guide to help you on your own life’s journey to find and embrace your true calling, or dharma (click on link to read more).

Each one of us has gifts and has to trust in our own gift: “it is better to fail at your own dharma than to succeed at the dharma of someone else“. Bring every action into alignment with your dharma.

We have responsibility to our gift, and are responsible to give it in the way it is called for, and release all outcomes: “do your work with the welfare of others in mind“.

… in the  words of the one-and-only Dolly Parton, “Find out who you are, and then do it on purpose”.  much love.
