“We only lose what we cling to”- Buddha
Feeling stuck? Don’t sweat it. Sometimes getting lost, is exactly how we find ourselves. In one moment, you may feel clear and concise about your goals in life and the next, you have done a complete 180 degree turn and are set out on a new path. Change is never easy but it is always necessary. Like energy, if things never changed, life would become stagnant, and the more we are able to adapt and flow in a state of non-attachment, the easier we can make it for ourselves.
So, when the wings of change come sailing through, leaving you feeling lost, confused and without a clear direction. Always remember.
5. “Life is a journey, not a destination.”
There is no finish line and there isn’t a destination. “We do not dance and aim at certain spot in the room because that is where we ought to arrive at, the whole point of the dancing is the dance”- Alan Watts.
Every day we learn something, and learning is the most soul satisfying endeavour we can indulge in. The soul loves growth by experience, otherwise…. we wouldn’t be here. So stay cool, calm yourself, you don’t have anywhere to be but where you are.
4. Trust yourself
You are the only one who knows what you are looking for, take your time, go inside and find out what gets your heart pumping and your juices flowing. When change comes it is always needed. Although it may feel like a catastrophe and something you never wanted to happen, in time you’ll see why it had to happen.
3. Be vulnerable
Vulnerability is the first step to courage and is the foundation of self-confidence. But, who really wants to be put in a position where they feel they have no control over anything? It’s a hard spot to be in. Learning to let go then becomes a battle between your spirit and the masks of your ego. Your ego fights to stay in control, while your higher awareness knows its time to surrender. All in this in an elaborate scheme to mask your true authentic self from finally shining through allowing you to find your destined path. You have already made the choices for yourself on a higher level of consciousness, you are simply here to walk them.
2. Take the risk
You will never know unless you try. The greatest part of change is that when one door closes it allows for the opening of others. Life will not leave you without options, but it is your job and choice to take advantage of them when they come.
1. Be stuck
And finally, if you have exhausted all of your efforts in trying to move forward with your circumstance to no avail, it is time to just be stuck. Too often we try to force things when we are bored or unsatisfied, which tends to cause more problems than there were to begin with. If things aren’t manifesting, it might just be that the universe needs the time to reorder itself and gather the energies required to elevate you onto your newly chosen path.
In order to keep the energies that are building for you on their highest possible course, place your disposition into a state of acceptance and gratitude. Take comfort in knowing that you are exactly where you are supposed to be.
