New Year's Resolution Meditation

As each New Year's Day dawns, full of promise, we are once again inspired to make resolutions for personal improvement.

I think of resolutions as pacts, made by my discriminative mind, to exert control over my actions.

Some helps for remembering a resolution:
1. I like to write it on a piece of paper and carry it in my pocket. Every time I put my hand in the pocket and touch that paper I am again reminded.
2. Post notes in visible locations.
3. Send yourself an email reminder.
4. Write it on your daily planner or calendar.

When you remember your resolution and other people are around, just take a few moments to reflect upon how it is working in your daily life. Remember, you are working at something that is going to improve the quality of your life.

Journaling Meditation

Later, perhaps before retiring, spend a longer period in a more formal meditation: 5 minutes of even in and out breathing, moving on to several minutes reflecting on your progress toward meeting your goal.

Now, take your journal out and begin a new chapter to record your progress in keeping your resolution. In this way you can see how you are doing over a period of time and what the stumbling blocks are. And, if you fail, just write out a fresh resolve and keep going. Only quitters are losers.

Finish your meditation with an appreciation to yourself, for positive efforts in any area you have made that day!

Resolves in progress.
