Goal-setting with Awareness - Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017 1:17 am

Often, before the goal-setter has even taken aim, the first weakness has been exposed. It’s hiding in the dark, out of plain, tangible site. It pulls down possibilities like gravity… and direction is compromised before it even begins. I’m talking about the invisible force known as self-awareness, or in this case, a lack of. While success is understood through action, it starts as an idea, the awareness that preludes the goal, and this is where most get stuck; their view is limited. If your view is limited, there is a flow-on affect with your goals, actions and results. So, how can we get this process right, between inward awareness and outward action, so that our goals have purpose, clarity and self-relevance? Here are some things to reflect on:

1. Know yourself

Self-awareness is the feeling that preludes action. Any lack of awareness clouds action, promoting off-target trajectory and inefficient use of energy and resources. Unfortunately, we live in a world fixated on results, with little care or help with the awareness and action that drive it. My advice, is to flip that around; spend just as much time in the pursuit of awareness as the pursuit of actions. That is best achieved with extended periods alone, accelerated even further through meditation and contemplation, journalling the knowledge you are learning. Time away from the world, means you will be less distracted by it and can better understand yourself, your relationship with life and how YOU want to live it.

2. Let it come to you

Relax your mind and allow the inspiration to come to you… that is how it works. Stilling the mind via Kelee Meditation (KM) accelerates this. It is a very practical way to calm brain chatter, detach from mental dysfunction and open the internal idea factory. After-all, the best ideas and intentions don’t come when your tense with thinking. Brain function is what measures and compares results, not inspires them. It would be wiser to open to mind function, where consciousness itself resides, your true centre. These ideas “come out of the blue,” when your mind is relaxed and open to your spirit. You just need to create the space - and that is within you, not outside of you. The process of Kelee Meditation and an understanding of the anatomy of the Kelee will open this up.

3. Get rid of blocks

If you can’t move forward, it is because you are blocked - at any stage of the process. So the close, continual observation of your mind is needed to breed a healthy environment of awareness and foresight. I.e., stop the habitual pattern of looking outside for improvement. After all, If you can’t see a mountain in the distance clearly, is it the mountains fault? We are always looking for a better way and this is dependent on your look. I.e., view. Don’t try harder if you are blocked, you will most-likely accelerate getting in your own way. You are not ready for action until you are clear and inspired by the pathway and its purpose. By purpose, I mean how will this make your life better? All blocks come from fear. For example, a fear of losing, or a fear you are not worthy. This is nothing to be ashamed of, we all have fears. Learn and detach from them, so they end up being steps on your ascent to success. 

4. AIM

Success is “the accomplishment of an aim or purpose,” with the aim being the goal. If you can see it, go for it! Know your target as well as the state of mind, skills and knowledge required for a successful outcome. Move into the action with awareness and without fear. If a mistake is made - and they will be, learn from the mistake. I,e., where did the breakdown happen? Was it a lack of knowledge, skill, fitness, foresight… was I mentally distracted? Journal your findings and action your learnings, always staying open for improvement to greater performance. The improvement is always more awareness and less fear. Look up at the big picture every now and again, but most of your attention needs to be present and on the next step (in the right direction). You may find that as you detach from fears and develop your awareness, your goals become loftier. This is another reason to keep most of your attention in the present moment, always open for a better way. 

 

5. Daily discipline

Unlike news years resolutions, which are generally looked at once a year, this is something that requires daily discipline for maximum result. If you lose the daily discipline of time alone in meditation and contemplation, you can quickly quickly grow in brain chatter and lose yourself to the second point again, answering to the demands of the outside world first — and losing yourself in the process. If you do this, you miss the point, not only of your goal, but of life itself. So, lastly, make it a daily discipline, to place primary importance on the gaining of clarity and awareness first, action second. This will get you in a good flow to achieving your goals - and it all starts with awareness.
