Sometimes, when we feel like we’re pounding our head against a wall, it’s time to stop.
If we take the time to reflect we might find something is off.
We think the wall is on the outside.
Yet it might just be that the wall is internal.
We may feel that life is putting obstacles in our path.
That things are just getting harder and harder for no reason.
We feel resistance all around us.
Nothing seems to be working out.
Perhaps that is the time Life is telling us something.
Perhaps that is the time to take a closer look inside.
To see where is our resistance.
To find out where are we not surrendering.
For blockages in our lives are not generated from the external world.
They are internal and energetic blockages that keep us from where we are going.
They are the signs that we have some resistance to receiving.
Or to giving.
Or perhaps we are just resistant to letting go of control.
Thinking we know what’s best.
Yet our perspective is so limited.
Can we really know what is best for the future?
Can we truly see what will happen in 5, 10 or 15 years?
Perhaps that disaster of a vacation was the last time you got to spend with a close relative.
Or maybe we avoided a crash on the way home because we had to turn back to get something we forgot.
We think we need to manage the universe.
Actually, the universe is quite capable of managing itself perfectly.
So where are your resistances to letting?
