Humble Warrior Yoga Pose

Virabhadrasana Bhakti

Uh-oh. Are you stuck?

Stuck-ness is a state of mind that can put any of us into overdrive. What can we do? How can we fix it? Should we take courses? Should we spice things up? Where should we start?

Therein lies the rub. As soon as you realize you are stuck, you are becoming conscious of something within yourself that is dissatisfied. And it is the human condition that we want to immediately turn dissatisfaction into satisfaction.

If only it were that easy.

You may have been living in happy ignorance for quite some time before you realized that things were not as contented as you had thought. If it has hit you like a ton of bricks, this is a sign that all your inner signals have been ignored. Things often appear as whispers before they come as shouts. The problem is that in today’s day and age, we don’t even have enough quiet to hear our own inner rumblings.
