The feeling of “stuckness” arises when you find yourself in a life situation which does not seem to change for the better. You may be in a job that feels “joyless”, which hardly ever motivates you, and yet you seem to be doing it everyday for several years or you may be living in a bad financial situation that feels very disempowering and it doesn’t seem to improve. You could feel stuck in a relationship, in a family, in a lifestyle, with a car, with your body, with your health, with your memories etc So many situations that can make you feel stuck in life. Yet the bottom line that if you are feeling “stuck” it just means that you are “resisting” the movement of life in some way or the other.
Life is forever moving, it’s very dynamic
Anyone who aligns with the flow of life would experience each day differently, there would be something new, something fresh, about each moment. Life is so full of “aliveness” it’s not possible to feel a sense of “stuckness” when you are moving with the flow. Life will carry you forth and provide you with the energy to take the right actions and get to realities that feel “good” to your being. Life is always moving towards the manifestation of your positive desires, so everyday has the potential to bring something new into your life.
When you let go of resistance and line up with the flow, life provides you with inspiring thoughts in the form of radical ideas, desires, imaginations and expectations, that juice up your every moment. Life keeps bringing you in contact with environments that give you a sense of well-being and joy. Life wants to enjoy through this body, it wants to enjoy “itself”. The whole purpose of existence is that life wants to know, and appreciate, itself in every form. Life can’t be anything but a fun adventure when you align with its flow.
What prevents you from aligning with life?
Fear is the reason you resist life. You resist your own expansion because you are “fearful” of expanding. People want better lives but deep down they are afraid of leaving their present reality behind, even if it’s a miserable one. The mind wants to cling to the familiar, so it will cling to an unpleasant life situation also – just because it’s familiar. Clinging, or identifying, with a life situation causes you to resist the movement of life, and hence you start feeling stagnant or stuck.
Develop the courage to trust life and just let go into its flow. Yes the mind is starkly afraid of change but it’s also the mind that wants change. You have to make the choice, are you willing to let go and trust life to take you where you desire to be or would you rather keep hacking at life with your “past conditioning” and limited intelligence. Letting go is a very dynamic process when you allow yourself to “relax” and be effortless, trusting life to inspire you every time an action needs to be taken.
You cannot come out of your “stuck” life by using the same methods that got you stuck in the first place. You have to let go of depending on your “mind” (or conditioned thinking) and rest in a place of “unknown” where life’s intelligence can start operating in you.
Stop thinking your old thoughts, stop believing your old beliefs, and simply rest in the space of an innocent “not knowing”. Be willing to be fully ignorant of what’s to happen, and then life can start moving you. As long as you are strategizing from your past conditioning, nothing new can arise in you. Life is fresh every moment, your conditioned thoughts are old news, let go of them and be willing to allow life to instill new inspirations in you.
