A new year is coming. In case you are wondering how to change your life and yourself, here’s a powerful process from Sadhguru to create a powerful sense of inner wellbeing that will carry you through any sort of external situation.
Sadhguru: Every human being, either consciously or unconsciously, through the process of what we call life, creates a certain image, a certain personality of himself. This image that you have created within yourselves has nothing to do with reality. It has nothing to do with the self, your inner nature. It is a certain image that you have built, most of the time unconsciously. Very few human beings have built a conscious image of themselves. All others have built images according to whatever kind of patterns or external situations they fell into.
Now, why don’t we create a new self-image consciously, the way you really want to be? If you are intelligent enough, if you are aware enough, you can recast your image, a totally new image, whichever way you really want it. It is possible. But you should be willing to leave the old one. This is not pretension. Instead of acting unconsciously, you act consciously. You can create that kind of image which supports you best, that kind of image which creates maximum harmony around you, that kind of image which has least friction. You create that kind of an image which is closest to your inner nature. What kind of an image do you think is closest to your inner nature? Please see, the inner nature is very silent, not dominant but very forceful. Very subtle but very forceful.
That is what we need to do: the grosser elements within you – your anger, your limitations must be chopped off. Create a new self-image which is subtle but tremendously forceful. Think about it for the next one or two days and create a proper image for yourself; what should be the fundamental nature of your thought and emotion. Before we create something, let us really see, if what we are creating now is better than what we have. Choose a time when you would not be disturbed. Sit comfortably with your back rested and be relaxed. Now, close your eyes and visualize how other people should experience you. Create a whole new human being. Look at it with as much detail as possible. See if this new image is more human, more efficient, more loving.
我们需要做的是：必须去掉你内在不好的部分 —— 你的愤怒、你的局限性。创造一个新的自我形象，一个微妙但极为强大的形象。在接下来的一到两天里，想一想，然后创造一个适合你自己的形象；什么才应该是你思想和情感的核心本质。在我们创造出某个事物前，让我们好好想想，我们要创造的是不是比我们现有的要好。选择一个你不会被打扰的时间。舒适地坐着，后背放松。现在，闭上眼睛，观想其他人（和你在一起）会有什么样的体验。创造一个全新的你。观想它，越细节越好。看看这个新的形象是否更具有人性 、更高效、更有爱。
Visualize this new image as powerfully as you can. Make it alive within yourself. If your thought is powerful enough, if your visualization is powerful enough, it can even break the bonds of karma. The karmic limitations can be broken by creating a powerful visualization of what you want to be. This is the opportunity to transcend all your limitations of thought, emotion and action.
