The apple cannot be stuck back on the Tree of Knowledge; once we begin to see, we are doomed and challenged to seek the strength to see more, not less.

Arthur Miller

Have you ever been at an emotional stand still? When the thought of really looking at the situation was too difficult? Never mind making any life altering changes stuck seemed safe. Yet it was still stuck, unable to move in any direction really unable to grow, to breathe, and to grieve.

I also have witnessed those who would rather stay in this state of denial than to pull off the blinders and get loose from the situation that cause the “stuck-ness”. Life can be so challenging.

I have a girlfriend that is in a marriage that has ended years ago. Yet the appearance of marriage is still there. She finds it safer to be in a physically alienated marriage that to break free, look at her “stuff”, and move out of this dysfunctional state of being. I have decided to buy her “goo gone” from the hardware store. She is as bright as a shinny button and will get the symbolic meaning instantly. I will make sure there is lunch and wine involved. It is not for me to decided weather she shall untangle the mess she is in. It is none of my business really. I can only love and support her. Laugh and cry with her.

What is my business is to put goo gone on my shelf…. I know it is a physical answer to an emotional dilemma. Yet it is a reminder of where I have been.

All the jammed up, messed up, moments I took my sweet time before I faced the inevitable crushing disappointment and pain. What I had to over come. Life is a journey and what I do with it is up to me. The scenarios that unfold before me have as much to do about what I called into my path. I created for my own purpose. The loved ones I have in my life are there for a reason as I am in my friend’s life for a reason as well.

My Mantra “I am safe to look at the hard things and become unstuck” “I will be ok in my journey of awakening”
