All beings have a purpose in life, a destiny. When we pursue our dreams we are fulfilling our universal contract and the universe rewards us with an amazing life, the one we were destined to live.
We often get caught up in daily struggles that distract us from our dreams. We sometimes think that our dreams are not important, that somehow it is more important to fulfill perceived obligations or expectations that others have for us. However, when we abandon our dreams for the sake of perceived obligations or expectations, we also live a life unfulfilled.
But each day is a new beginning, a new opportunity to live that purpose and the being we are meant to be in this extraordinary life drama, the Dharma of life.
When we pursue our dreams with purpose they flourish then we can see our destiny unfolding before our eyes.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
