Getting Unstuck

We’ve all hit a wall at one time or another, a period where we feel stuck. So what keeps us stuck? What can we do to become unstuck?
Ernest Holmes wrote that theoretically we should all be well, happy, prosperous, radiant, and filled with joy and enthusiasm. Obviously this is not how many of us go through life. We lose our sense of wonder and joy. Holmes would say the child has gone out of us.
I read recently that in Zen hitting the wall is called, “The Gateless Gate.” The gate doesn’t exist out in the world, it’s our own creation. So, if we created it we must un-create it, and re-create a way of being that we find more fulfilling. We need to enter into a more conscious union with Life. Spiritual law acts like a mirror. When we release old images of thought and place new ones in front of the mirror, the old reflections depart and the new ones take their place.
Allie Worthington poses several interesting questions for us to ponder. Are you thinking what you think you should do or what you were meant to do? What is sucking the life out of you? She suggests we make a, “stop doing list.” Stop doing what doesn’t feed our hearts and begin doing what does. Several weeks ago I saw the actress Maria Bello interviewed; she spoke about a time in her life when she was confused about what path to follow. A mentor gave her what she called the best advice she ever received. He told her, “You serve best by doing what you love,” great advice for all of us.
