We have to meet the silence empty and open, still and receptive. No fear. No desires. No anger. No hatred. No judgment. No opinion. We bring stillness and emptiness, openness and receptivity to the silence, and wait, watching, for what emerges, occurs to us, arises, appears, beckons, calls, urging us to action without fear, desire, anger, hatred, judgment, opinion. Just seeing. Just hearing. Just knowing. Just understanding. Just doing. Just being. Just becoming. What needs to happen. What needs to be done. When it needs to be done. How it needs to be done. Where it needs to be done. Because it needs to be done. Out of our true nature. Out of our original nature. With the gifts, daemon (sounds like "diamond"), virtues, spirit, energy, vitality, characteristics, qualities, ways of being and doing, seeing and saying, that came with us from the womb. Moment by moment, in each situation as it arises. This is our dharma-duty that we are born to serve and to do out of our true nature, our original nature, within the context and circumstances of our life, all our life long. We never quit being who we are, where we are, when we are, for the sake of the true good of the whole, in filial service and liege loyalty and devotion to that which needs us to be who we are, where we are, when we are, for the sake of the true good of the whole. If you do not know what I am talking about, sit still and quiet and allow the silence to show you what I mean.
Fulfilling our destiny/dharma is doing what needs to be done-- what needs us to do it-- what we need to do in the time and place of our living. We may well want to do it, and we may be compelled to do it, past all wanting, desiring, craving. Our destiny/dharma is that which we have to do or to live forever having not done it, having failed to respond when the time for acting was upon us, or having responded with a steadfast refusal to do what we knew was needed, but did not have the heart for, or the interest in. Putting ourselves in the service of our destiny/dharma and serving it with all our heart, and soul, and mind, and strength is finding our life and living it. Through all situations and circumstances, no matter what. The trick is to remember what we are doing and refuse to let anything keep us from doing it. It will seem to be useless, pointless, meaningless, hopeless futile and absurd. Keep going. Stay with it. Believe steadfastly that it matters how we live, and live as though it does-- anyway, nevertheless, even so! If we are going to ever take anything on faith, let it be this, and live like it matters to our very last breath!
