Connecting the dots in life has been traditionally a subject-matter for discussion for many decades. But Steve Jobs in his famous “Connecting the dots” speech in Stanford University not only captivated the young minds who attended the graduation event but also many others in the world. I am a big believer that our thoughts, relationships, events that unfold in life, experiences we gain out of it, etc. are interconnected and communicating something powerful giving us an opportunity to unfold our purpose. Invoking our own passion out of layers of encryption and finding the opportunities that are buried in the events unfolding are the two big challenges in life. The ancient Sanatana Dharma philosophy indicates finding the life’s purpose comes from knowing one’s Dharma, i.e. true nature. It is a process of self-development that is enjoyable, fulfilling and amazing journey. In Sanskrit, “Swabhava” means one’s own nature and being. “Swa” means self and “bhava” means feeling. To simply rely on the limited thinking mind is to search for answers in the areas of our life that we already know. Sometimes we must search outside the areas we are familiar with to gain a perspective that helps us to recognize that we already have the answers. In our body, mind and spirit complex, we have intuitions, feelings, emotions, experiences, habits, thoughts, bundle of desires, passions, principles, and many more. Every experience that happens in our lives involve one or more of the above and resultant lessons we perceive through our own self-analysis or introspection. All the above are just tools that helps us understand the reflection of our encryption and doesn’t reflect who we really are. The human life makes constant journey between pleasure and pain and when it enjoys pleasure, the mind does everything to celebrate and prolong the happiness and when it suffers the pain, the mind does everything to alleviate the pain quickly. Sometimes, the pain one experiences is so severe that has a life-changing effect. To find life's purpose and dharma, one should forge a relationship with the unconscious parts of self and with the knowing mind, to spark one’s deeper intuition and connection to the highest self. When one steps outside of the boundaries of one’s comfort zone into the subconscious and unconscious areas of one’s being, one can explore parts that one does not yet fully know and parts that one cannot yet imagine exist. Much joy and release from anxieties comes from discovering one’s greater self and the unknown parts of oneself. Root cause of one’s suffering is the result of not analyzing and reflecting the one’s inherent nature and not the hostility of lives around us nor the adversity created by the events unfolding in our lives. Fulfilling life can’t be expected from the people we love or have great friendship with, but from how we develop the affinity for them in our hearts through self-refinement. Our own intuition, the experiences we had encountered in our lives, the passions that keeps flashing in our minds from time to time, the opportunities that are hidden behind the adversities we encounter are all connected and failing to see that connection deprives us from a great sense of fulfillment. Our life, with forgetfulness of our encryption, ability to withstand the pain, intellect to find the opportunities hidden behind the adversities in life, disciplined thinking to uncover the passions buried in our thoughts, etc. appear to be a complex set of conditions. However, there is a common thread called self-discovery. We have the hidden power to unfold all of them and connect the dots and once we do that, our life will be extremely fulfilling. That ability is gifted to us and self-discovery is the primary goal in life. Once we begin pursuing self-discovery, everything that need to happen will fall in place. In conclusion, connecting the dots is about simplifying the ability to think about the purpose, analyzing thoughts that are relevant and brushing aside thoughts that are immaterial. This ability is present here and now.
