Prepare to Use Your Inner Silence Effectively

What are you working on? Write a few words for the email, blog, report, plan, or other project. What are you already thinking? Or just write what's going on for you today: Your challenges? What's bothering you? This short app will help you get to core of the matter.

You'll be using inner silence to make sure you're operating from your center. But you already have many good ideas. Use this box to record them—because that's where you're starting from.

Everything you write stays on your computer alone. Nothing is transmitted to us.

Return to the Topic. Write your new thoughts

If you wish, reread what you've written. Record your new thoughts.

What are your deeper emotions, intuitions, insights, new perspectives, inner promptings, and inexplicable impressions?

When finished, click the button labeled "These Are My New Thoughts, Feelings, Insights, & Intuitions."

Make Centered Choices to Align Your Being with Your Insights

Write "I choose..." and make choices about your situation, based on what you've learned.

Repeat several times, surrounding each choice with inner silence. Click the "I choose..." button after every choice you make.

Future Enhancements that Apply to All Exercises

I have developed 315 more practices which are part of the same curriculum. This number will eventually grow to 3,000 or 30,000, depending on what the users (you) decide to do with this curriculum. Each practice targets different goals and different problems, depending on what you need.

For a tour of the full curriculum, use the following blog as a guide: Take the Tour: Explore the Joyful Wisdom Journey Curriculum. This blog is an illustrated guide to clicking the button at the bottom of this page that's labeled "Coming Soon: What's Next? Your Next Move." You can click the button without the blog, but the UI is not very intuitive.

This prototype lacks certain features that will help you to use it. Eventually, you'll have a blog that automatically receives all of your written responses to any exercise. No more copying and pasting.

All pages will have have:

  1. Feedback features that allow you to suggest changes.
  2. Links to user blogs where you can see how other people have used the exercise or meditation and what they've learned from it.
  3. A way to suggest alternative wording for each step in every exercise—including wording in other languages.
  4. A way to set your preferences for which wording you like, including your preferred language.
  5. Animation, audio, and video to guide you through steps that require them.
  6. Links to Joyful Wisdom Community resources for learning or practicing each method in the community of others, rather than in isolation.

I've planned many other enhancements, but this gives a flavor of what's coming.

For a brief description of future programming plans, read the following blog: Plans for the Computer Programming Needed for the Joyful Wisdom Journey.

Express Your Deepest Truth in All That You Do

There's a time for spontaneity and a time for thoughtfulness. Thoughtfulness might have prevented that embarrassing or damaging email, those poorly considered daily plans, the badly written report, the knee-jerk reaction that led to an inappropriate decision, the inaccurate judgments of people, or a botched attempt to help a friend in need—if you can’t remember times when you should have been more thoughtful, you’re not being honest.

It’s not just about mistakes. Remember the time when thoughtfulness might have given you the edge to make a difference, when being more mindful would have allowed you to shine, when taking time to be strategic would have improved your income or love life, when you could have been more creative, clever, insightful, empathic, or graceful? Can’t think of a time when thoughtfulness would have boosted your fortunes? You, my friend, are not trying hard enough!

We all know that regret is useless. The time to remember to be thoughtful is before the mistake or the botched opportunity happens. Being thoughtful needs to be a regular habit—something that you practice daily. Therefore, use this exercise:

  • to write that email,
  • to plan your day,
  • to create that report, strategic plan, or term paper,
  • to evaluate your options in a difficult situation, or
  • to prepare for an appointment, date, meeting, or interview.

Use this exercise daily. It is so versatile that you will always be able to find something to use it for. It will not only guide you to wiser decisions, but it will lead you to living a more thoughtful life overall. Use it whenever tempted to play computer solitaire or to engage in other mini-addictions.
