Prioritizing Needs and Desires


This is lesson 12 in the series "Conquering Codependency - Loving Without Leaning" looking at aspects of codependency from a spiritual point of view. Each of the 48 lessons includes a prayer or meditation.

Needs are necessary for survival; desires are added attractions. By prioritizing needs and desires we can put our time and energy into what is most important to us.

Only we ourselves can determine how much time and energy we are going to put into fulfilling the variable desires.

Try this journaling meditation

Open a notebook so you have a left and right page showing. On the left hand page list your survival needs. On the right hand page list your desires. Spend some time thinking about the 2 lists.

Now number items in each list in order of importance to you; with number 1 being the most important. Perhaps consider the top 5 your most important and put most of your energy toward them.

Reviewing

Every so often review the list of desires and re-prioritize if you wish. Keep in mind that we each ultimately control our own destiny. And, fulfilling desires that maintain harmony give us the most happiness during the ride - rocky for a while but later serene.
