If You Are Feeling Stuck

– Posted in: The Shift Ezine

ifyouarefeelingstuckI want to say; I don’t live in these beliefs anymore. Well, I could say it, but I don’t feel it.

That’s what I want, I want to feel and experience that I don’t live in these beliefs anymore, ever, not now, not then.

Instead, I don’t feel like doing anything. At all.

Outside the weather is changing. It’s interesting how much everyone loves the seasons of change. Spring or fall.

Spring bursts with bright colors, and more shades of green than we can count. Every day brings new growth.

Fall sweeps in with its oranges and yellows and rusts and reds. These colors are everywhere from the sky to the ground.

Fall flowers proudly sway in the wind. Trees take turns wearing brilliantly blazing colors and then dropping them, revealing the beauty that lies beneath.

But, what about seasons of change within us? I don’t think we like them as much.

Most of us love the spring season of change when everything that was working below the surface pops up to bloom. Some we keep, some we weed out. We enjoy this display of abundance.

But what about the fall season of change? Do we enjoy the letting go and then the revealing of what lies beneath?

When we are stuck in the belief that we are humans living in a two or three-dimensional world we resist change.

Believing that we are humans living in a world where what we do means more than what we are and how we live, it’s easy to get stuck.

Stuck at doing too much. Stuck at doing too little. Stuck in judgment or worry or fear.

So, as I watch the leaves drop and the squirrels scramble to prepare for the next season, I don’t feel like doing anything.

Not because I don’t want to. I do. But, I can’t find the reason why I want to do it. I have been stuck in believing that what appears as me is me.

The results of this forgetting have been evident to me this past week. I noticed that I have been caught up in the beliefs of limitation, of personal meaning, of wondering I why do something if no one knows about it but me.

This is why I don’t want to live in these beliefs anymore. I want to fully experience that we do not live in a two or three-dimensional world.

I want to stop thinking like a human at least a few times a day.

I want to experience that all of us are much more that what I see with my eyes. I want to truly see you and me as symbols, icons, of the fullness and limitlessness of our true being.

Nature constantly reminds us that everything is an expression of a deeper, wider, fuller intelligent life.

It reminds us that living is not about how many people know who we are, but as Seth Godin says, it’s about living a life that means if we don’t show up we will be missed.

Not how many people will miss us, but will we be missed by those that matter to us.

If we don’t express ourselves will that expression be missed?

Let’s take at least a few days and let go of the world’s expectations of what our expression has to look like.

It might feel so good that we don’t pick it up again.

Embrace these seasons of change. They are meant to show us evidence of the fuller multiple dimensions that make up all life, and yes, that includes each one of us.

Unique and individual, and part of the whole, one.

When we see the activity and beauty that nature spreads before us, let’s remember that we are one with it, and all that it represents.

Instead of stuck, we are free; now, then, and forever.
