When you decide on an organizing principle, aka direction for your life, you'll suddenly find yourself with obstacles blocking even your view of the horizon, let alone your path.
This article is about that...
Some ten years ago I learned a valuable way of looking at making life meaningful, or living a meaningful life. The teacher suggested that we pick a horizon, a direction, and then look what's blocking the way of getting there.
Since then I saw that even seeing the horizon is blocked... Blocked by seven boulders, lined up one behind the other, blocking your view, blocking your movement.
So, in my coaching practice, when I ask people to set a direction, and they can't see any, I am inclined to suggest that they choose the direction: living a meaningful live, or a fulfilled life... without specifying what it is.
OK, the insight is similar to what I saw last time, but it's, maybe a little more defined. Finish What You Start hasn't had the courage to become a person. He looks outside to see if he is doing OK... needs approval.
At the merest suspicion that he should do something different, he is going to jump... and exhaust himself or herself. Doesn't open up a conversation... and the people they live with learn to direct them with just a glance.
This is, by the way, the reason they don't have fulfilled projects: they get distracted by their spouses, bosses, and don't follow their inner calling... either don't have the courage, or don't have a calling...

I break a lot of eggs every day. I like to eat the yolk separate from the white. So I separate them. The egg white is like snot... No definite shape, no commitment, sneaky.
This is how "Finish What You Start" behave, like the egg white... Avoid being called to account, avoid to be a person who can be counted on.
I see this soul correction on Scott toilet paper as well: it kinda sorta has a sheet size, it kinda sorta has perforation, but it won't tear at the perforation... It tears where it wants to tear...
A "Finish What You Start" product, avoiding any accountability, whatsoever. lol... frustrating to me, who likes to have things done.
Looking at the vise... try to control egg whites with a vise... ugh, ugly.
New insight 5/20/2017 courtesy of a student:
Today some new things came to mind..
I realized that i live in a vise like pressure i put myself in.. i always do for some reason.. i'm looking at why. i feel its false adopted beliefs.
How i noticed is that thinking about all the reading and the diet the saying no to things and yes to others .. being disciplined and adding structure feels like work , like i have to make it happen.. then i remember my life before.. i was pulled in a thousand directions at once and completely running myself down on things i (wanted) to do..
So today i imagined what it would feel like if i didn't have anything i had to do or not do.. i ended up thinking id have a nap or just go for a slow walk.. then i realized that the reading and listening and structure and the diet.. all the things i (have ) to do, will make my life so much easier and meaningful than it has been , and i started to actually feel like it is my vacation , my relief.

I have been trying to get the Muscle Testing program ready for sale, but I have had a snag: the emotions list was too long, too cumbersome, and most people would not be able or willing to go through a list of 100 stages... including myself.
Even measuring the vibrational level of each feeling didn't feel right. Now what?!
But I suddenly had an inspiration, a minute ago, and I think I have had the solution all along, just didn't think of it that way.
The Bach Flower Emotions and the Bach Flower Energies are perfect. They are recognizable, they are real, they cover all the field of character defect and attitude errors.
So I am going to use those as a guidance system to attack your "garden pests" in the garden of your being.
How does it work?
You observe your symptoms. You find the matching Bach Flower Remedy. You either buy the remedy at your local health food store, or order it online. You practice observing the ego aspects of your personality, and with the help of the Flower you transform it.
You will use muscle testing to make sure that you are picking the right Flower. But even if you pick the wrong one, you are going to start the work of weed picking, and your vibration will rise.
You'll get better, and you'll fly higher.
Warning: you should do this for the purpose of identifying, and correcting your ego-self. To get instant gratification is nice, but will not raise your vibration permanently: you need to earn your vibration and you can only do it with conscious work.
The Flowers help but will only do transformation, which is impermanent. Transfiguration is the goal: that is permanent.
So, what is your next step?
Your best bet is to buy a book on Bach Flower Remedies: I like the books by Mechthild Scheffer and Stefan Ball. I, personally, nowadays, always refer to Mechthild Scheffer's book: it speaks the language I resonate with: I read it and feel the feeling associated with the flower... perfect for me. Which means, to me, that I find her the most "Tree of Life" and the others Tree of Knowledge... i.e. they got to their conclusions through thinking, not connecting.
Nevertheless, I think the workbook by Stefan Ball is useful for you. Buy them locally, or order them from Amazon. I buy them on Amazon.
