I’ve been driving myself batty trying to make a few very life altering decisions. I am one for meditating on something until I feel completely right about what the decision is and then I go for it. When I was younger the meditation time was much shorter and I wavered much less than I seem to be doing now.
At first I found it so simplistic I didn’t think it was going to do anything for me, you know because I’m so full of depth. (ha ha)
Then a lot of insight hit me and I took some time to meditate on the thoughts from Who Moved My Cheese? I started with these headings in case you want to use for yourself.
What do I want?
What am I afraid of?
How do I feel right now?
What do I want to do? Why am I not doing it? (see also What am I afraid of?)
When am I happiest? Most at peace?
When do I feel most accomplished?
This also got me thinking about a phrase a teacher of mine once said often, “awareness precedes change.” Awareness is the first step. You can’t make a change unless you are aware that a change needs to be made first. While I knew on some level the answers to the above questions some of my answers were shocking to myself (and some also a little silly)
I’m sharing here and would love to have a conversation about what you came up with too.
