Gather friends, family and/or strangers. The more the merrier! Begin the meditation by switching off all forms of electronic devices, leaving only your well worn, highly expensive leather-bound journals at the ready. On a sheet of paper, in a mirror, on a table, wherever you can access it, write down your deepest, most private fears and concerns. Let them all drain out. Meditate on them, imagine each one as a negative black dot off to the side to the left of your face. Get them all sorted out. Now imagine yourself getting a monthly, bi-weekly, weekly, or daily assignment for these black dots. This suggests that every single day is a new assignment with 0 other obligations. What is the implication of this observation? What is this new assignment for today? Is it a distraction? In your journal, what can you do to take care of this assignment?
Move forward. Nothing, anywhere, ever happens by chance. So focus instead on the fact that God planted the seeds of all creation knowing that it would eventually flourish. Are the seeds the worry and stress in your life? Then God planted them. Happiness is a product of our own actions and how we go about them. Meditation on this should knock away our imaginary worry and stress. Think about your heart. What is the one element, one thing, that you feel like you’re always in need of? Is it a relationship? A job? Income? Basic health? A home? Something else entirely? Write it down.
Decide if it really is important. If you think it’s important, can you find a way to make it happen today? If it’s not ''today,’s always tomorrow. If it is really important, you should do something about it. But, if you don’t feel like it’s important, go for it anyway and enjoy whatever it is you do.’ Luckily, we live in a country of choice and discovery. And, with that type of choice, comes the power to make the right choice. d2c66b5586
