From a close-up view it is difficult to see the overall shape of your life. Without a sense of proportion every moment can feel like a 'life or death' struggle, so it's important to be able to detach from your immediate concerns. Death is cast as your ultimate enemy, yet detachment can help you to establish your true priorities and to accept loss as the price of change.
Is your life so busy that you have no time to do what you really want? Do you fritter your time on trivial diversions, or waste it worrying about all the things you should be doing? How much of your life is essential to who you want to become? How much is duty and obligation?
What do you need to let go of?
- What are you holding onto or tolerating that is dragging you down?
- What are you willing to give up or give away to make space for your dreams?
What would you like to do before you die?
- What is your gift to the world?
