Preparing Yourself To Move On

There comes a time in every game when you have won what you were after or have lost interest in continuing. If you persist in playing this game, you will find yourself drifting out of present time and dwelling on past losses and rarely, past glories. This game I am describing can be a relationship, a career, even a life as a particular identity. All are important and all can be played to completion.

Some people try to handle this end condition by moving to a new location and finding a new place to live. Some people try to move on by dropping their body in the hopes that the next lifetime will be better. Other people handle the ending of a game by reinventing themselves and finding a new game to play. All of this can work if you can leave your emotional baggage behind.

Emotional Baggage

You can shed your emotional baggage by bringing yourself stably into present time and one of the best ways to do this is to learn to meditate. Here is a simple way to do this:

Locate yourself in a quiet place and sit comfortably with your attention on some pleasant, non-threatening object and breathe slowly. Do not allow yourself to be distracted by random thoughts, just continue meditating. You will know when you are done when you are completely at peace. This may take several hours.

When you complete your meditation, do manual activity that enables you to keep your attention on present time matters. Do this for some time, perhaps an hour or two. When you are ready, review your current situation and see if there is another game you wish to play instead of what you are doing. Calmly review the alternatives to your present game and choose the one that suits your needs.

If you find you cannot make a decision even after many days of meditation, consider getting counseling to handle the spiritual barriers to making decisions. The correct counseling will give you the power to assume control of your life and allow you to make the decisions you need to move on.
