There is a form of meditation that involves imagining a wise and loving parent who you could tell anything to. There is a widely used therapeutic technique called "the empty chair" that is somewhat like this. You can also wait and intuit what the answers would be. Some call it prayer. Don't knock it until you've tried it.
“It is only when we begin to relax with ourselves that meditation becomes a transformative process. Only when we relate with ourselves without moralizing, without harshness, without deception, can we let go of harmful patterns. Without maitri [kindness], renunciation of old habits becomes abusive. This is an important point.” ― Pema Chodron
From Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now:
True salvation is a state of freedom—from fear, from suffering, from a perceived state of lack and insufficiency and therefore from all wanting, needing, grasping, and clinging. It is freedom from compulsive thinking, from negativity, and above all from past and future as a psychological need. Your mind is telling you that you cannot get there from here. Something needs to happen, or you need to become this or that before you can be free and fulfilled. It is saying, in fact, that you need time—that you need to find, sort out, do, achieve, acquire, become, or understand something before you can be free or complete. You see time as the means to salvation, whereas in truth it is the greatest obstacle to salvation. You think that you can't get there from where and who you are at this moment because you are not yet complete or good enough, but the truth is that here and now is the only point from where you can get there. You “get” there by realizing that you are there already….Any condition can be used, but no particular condition is needed. However, there is only one point of access: the Now. There can be no salvation away from this moment.…This may be hard to grasp for a mind accustomed to thinking that everything worthwhile is in the future. Nor can anything that you ever did or that was done to you in the past prevent you from saying yes to what is and taking your attention deeply into the Now. You cannot do this in the future. You do it now or not at all. (p. 94)
In The Surrender Experiment, Micheal Singer gives the same message, but it may be received more by some, because of his contribution as "the creator of a leading-edge software package that transformed the medical practice management industry, and founding CEO of a billion dollar public company." Having a wife and kids as well as a government investigation of criminal financial dealings in his company (he was later acquitted) during the time he wrote a bestseller on transcending the mundane, he overcomes the criticism by movie character Larry Darrell that "It's easy to be a holy man on top of a mountain.
