Who’s made some New Year’s Resolutions for this year?
Typically they are
– starting something
– stopping something
– trying to do something different
this year – I’m NOT doing it! And here’s why.
It doesn’t work!!! At least not for me – How’s it working for you?
Let’s break the phase down …
New Year’s Resolutions
– New Year’s – fixed to a particular time
– Resolutions – breaking something apart, relaxation or weakening, formal decision or determination.
That feels really fixed, finite and has no room for fun or possibilities.
They are Goals that we set. Do you know the original definition for a “Goal” – a boundary, limit or end point. And the word is spelt very similar to the old word for jail – gaol. We can get so fixated and committed to the goals it does feel like a jail sometimes.
So what else is possible?
I prefer to use targets. A target is something we can aim at.
If you don’t reach a target – you get to rearm.
If you exceed a target – woo hoo and you get to re-set and aim for a new target.
And what if we lived our lives guided by priorities?
Priorities are the platform on which we can build out reality. But, how do you work out your priorities? Well – what energies do you want around you this year? What do you want to create? How do you want to feel?
Priorities have a flexibility and lightness to them much like targets. We can change them with ease – a 2 degree shift on the compasss of our life will result in a different reality in a years time.
Really, its as simple as asking – is this possibility or choice in alignment with my priorities? And we can do this weather the priorities are known or unknown to our conscious mind. Our Being always knows.
If it is in alignment – the feeling or knowing will be ‘light’ = go for it.
If it isn’t light – ask “What else is possible?”
