Some Bohemian Loves and Weekend Pondering

I need to find an old chair to re-purpose into something this awesome....


I have a skirt similar to this that I made from vintage curtains and upholstery fabric.

And I totally covet this table from Sabrina Ward Harrison's Apt...

I am considering making a beaded curtain for my kitchen. 

I'm in the process of making a quilt similar to this for my little Bella. I hope she'll love it.

And this is what I am pondering on this weekend:

The Law of “Dharma” or Purpose In Life

Everyone has a purpose in life…a unique gift or special talent to give to others.
And when we blend this unique talent with service to others, we experience the ecstasy and exultation of our own spirit, which is the ultimate goal of all goals.
The Law of Dharma says that we have taken manifestation in physical form to fulfill a purpose.
There is something that you can do better than anyone else in the whole world.
If you could start children right from the beginning with this thought, you’d see the effect it has on their lives.
What I really want to focus on is asking yourself how you can serve humanity, and asking yourself what your unique talents are.
There are three components to the Law of Dharma. The first component says that each of us is here to discover our true Self, to find out on our own that our true Self is spiritual, that essentially we are spiritual beings that have taken manifestation in physical form.
The second component of the Law of Dharma is to express our unique talents… This means that there’s one thing you can do, and one way of doing it, that is better than anyone else on this entire planet.
The third component of the Law of Dharma is service to humanity—to serve your fellow human beings and to ask yourself the questions, “How can I help? How can I help all those that I come into contact with?”
The question, “What’s in it for me?” is the internal dialogue of the ego. Asking “How can I help?” is the internal dialogue of the spirit.
If you want to make the maximum use of the Law of Dharma, then you have to make several commitments.
The first commitment is: I am going to seek my higher self, which is beyond my ego, through spiritual practice.
The second commitment is: I am going to discover my unique talents, and finding my unique talents, I am going to enjoy myself, because the process of enjoyment occurs when I go into timeless awareness. That’s when I am in a state of bliss.
The third commitment is: I am going to ask myself how I am best suited to serve humanity. I am going to answer that question and then put it into practice.
