What Do You Want to Do For The Rest of Your Life?

In this meditation, we do a reflection to explore our moment-to-moment intuition on what we most want and need.

Let's start by settling

into a comfortable posture.

This could be sitting,

standing, or lying down.

If it's comfortable,

you can close your eyes.

And we'll take a deep breath together.

In through the nose.

And slowly out through the mouth.

Inviting the jaw to soften.

Letting the shoulders be at ease.

As well as the hands and the belly.

As your body settles in, your breath

can return back to its natural rhythm.

And in today's meditation, we're

going to focus on following the

momentary thread of inspiration.

And there are different

degrees of inspiration.

It's not always this light bulb

moment where we go tuck ourselves

away in a closet and write a book.

Sometimes it's just this feeling of, Oh,

this is what I'm interested in right now.

Or, this is what I'm inspired to explore.

So as you settle into this place of

stillness and being, see if there's

a subtle sense of inspiration around

how you'd like to practice right now.

Are you inspired to focus on the breath?

Would you rather be more broad

and just rest in awareness?

Maybe there's a curiosity about the

body and emotion or watching thoughts?

The only instruction is to attune

yourself to that place within you

that knows what it wants to do right

now, at least within the context of

meditation, and see if you can follow it.

There's a lot of freedom here

to explore and that's the point.

So I'll step out of your way,

give you some space in silence

and let you have some fun.

Talk to you soon.

So as we come to the end of

our meditation, let's take

one more deep breath together.

In through the nose.

And slowly out through the mouth.

You can start to reorient yourself

to the the space around you.

And when you're ready, allow

your eyes to open again.

Good job.

So as you go about the rest of your

day, the rest of your week, and

even the rest of your life, see if

you can attune yourself more to the

momentary thread of inspiration.

Sometimes we have a sense of what we

want to do for a long period of time.

But a lot of times, it's a matter

of feeling into what's here now

and what do I feel inspired to do?

That could be big picture, what do

I feel inspired to do with my life?

And it could be small, what do I feel

inspired to do within my meditation?

This is a powerful strategy for living

a more attuned and intuitive life.

So thank you for your practice.

I'll talk to you soon.

Until we speak again, take care.
