Obstacles in Life

Posted on March 8, 2011 at 1:46 PM

"Most of our obstacles would melt away if, instead of cowering

before them, we should make up our minds to walk boldly through

them."

-- Orison Swett Marden

We can’t escape problems and negativity. Escaping just brings

denial and suppression - we continue to carry the problem with

us. Ironically, it is our lack of acceptance and resistance to

the problem that creates the pain. Resistance builds up an energy

wall or block that, if not discharged, gets suppressed into the

body. These blocks identify places where we have not enough

understanding or love.

For health, we must work through what we seek to avoid. How do we

do this? We can love parts of ourselves that we don’t like. We

can seek the lessons we are being invited to learn through the

problem. We can examine our beliefs and seek to see different

perspectives and a bigger picture. As our perspectives grow, more

of life makes sense and has meaning.

"The Lord is a good psychologist: he knows the way our minds

run. Turmoil can be the Lord's way of tapping us on the shoulder

and saying, 'Don't forget me.'"

-- Eknath Easwaran
