As 2014 approaches, people start preparing their New Year’s resolutions. Some people want to loose weight from the holidays, some may want to read more books, or move up in the corporate office. But what if your resolution is undecided because you are searching for something more out of life. What if your resolution means a complete makeover not only in your personal relationship, but in your living situation and your career? Maybe you’ve been toying with the idea for change but never took it seriously until just recently. How can you go from where you are now to where you want to be? Try this little method to help clarify if you need a change of path in your life.
Meditation is the best way to solve the unsolvable. If you’re not good with meditation, this might be a good time to try it. You should devote at least 12-24 hours of time for your personal retreat. No internet, no television, no phone calls or text, no friend or family. Your full attention must be devoted entirely to you. Just spend one day in devotion to yourself and your thoughts. Take time out to eat, drink, and exercise.
When you meditate, sit comfortably and clear your thoughts of all your worries.
Try to focus on the question of change: “Should I…?” “How can I accomplish…?”
Don’t try to answer the question. Just sit in silence for 10-15 minutes or however long you feel it necessary.
Then open your eyes and allow your mind to think, to wander, and to calculate around the solution to your question.
A pen and paper may be helpful.
Repeat the process of meditating, thinking, eating, drinking, and exercise until you feel confident in your solution. Try to examine all possible answers that can be taken, all possible hindrances and situations that may occur and how you may be able to handle them.
