Drama...or ...Dharma?
Matt. 11:
comedy and tragedy He who has ears to hear, let him hear. But to what shall I compare this generation? It is like children sitting in the market places and calling to their playmates,
`We piped to you, and you did not dance;
we wailed, and you did not mourn.'For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, `He has a demon'; the Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, `Behold, a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!' Yet wisdom is justified by her deeds."

That which elevates one is Dharma. This is another definition. Dharma is that which leads you to the path of perfection and glory. Dharma is that which helps you to have direct communion with the Lord. Dharma is that which makes you divine. Dharma is the ascending stairway unto God. Self-realisation is the highest Dharma. Dharma is the heart of Hindu ethics. God is the centre of Dharma.

Shakespeare said, "All the world is a stage, and men and women merely players." What if we were, even for a few moments, to consider the Truth of those words?

If you've ever been in a skit or play, even in elementary school...mayhaps a tree in an orchard of many even...You knew that your "job" was to perform your role and then get off the stage after the curtain came down. 

At the end of the performance, everyone went home, and it was over. But...what if "it" were your life? What if each play; each 'role' was a vital part of the wholeness of your life, to be known to you only at the "final curtain?" How then would you live?

Unity Wisdom

Man identifies himself with that to which he attaches his I AM (spiritual identity), and whatever he identifies himself with, that he manifests. Hitch your I AM to the star of Christ, and infinite joy will follow as night the day.
Charles Fillmore "The Revealing Word"


The difference between drama and dharma is how we see our lives unfolding. Do we go from one day to the next, one experience or circumstance to another without "connecting the dots?" Or do we step back and take a broader, deeper look, seeking understanding of how and why our lives are unfolding as they are? 

Spiritual understanding is the ability of the mind to apprehend and realize the laws of thought and the relation of ideas one to another. In a play or movie, the actors are following their scripts. The scripts were written by an author. In our lives, the scripts are written by our current state of awareness. If we want to re-write the script, that is where we start.


Like a skilled editor, we can look at the previous "scenes," determine the motivation of the "actors," particularly the lead role (ourselves), and change the script as needed. This is crucial. If we do not look at the past, we cannot rewrite the future. We will just keep doing the same thing over and over, wondering "why is this happening to me again?" These are the words of the "Drama Queen," who is so focused on the drama of the scene that they can't see the dharma (lesson or opportunity for growth) at hand. 


This skill can be developed and practiced each time we watch a play, television program or movie. We ask ourselves, "What is the plot line...the message...of this drama?" and then "Does this relate to my life in any way?" Typically it does. The Entertainment industry is a great indicator of the state of consciousness of human kind. They crank out and sell what we are buying. If we want to change the "drama," the "useless, unnecessary suffering" in the world, we can start by moving from being a "cast member" to a director. We can direct our minds and hearts. We can choose Truth, integrity, etc. and as we do, slowly but surely the "big picture" will change.
