Busting through the log jam or carving a new path

When I was a kid I loved building dams on small streams.  I loved watching the water back-up and try to find a way around the jam.  Sometimes, I would assist the stream and create a new path for it to flow.  I would spend hours controlling the direction and flow of the streams.

I don’t play in the streams so much anymore but when things are stuck in my life, I often think about my stream building and log jam busting days.  I have noticed that when things don’t seem to be going my way it feels like I have constructed my own log jam.  As with playing in the stream, I have found that there are two effective ways to get things moving again: 1) choose to move one stick at a time to free the jam or 2) build a new stream and accept that the log jam might be there for a reason.

The older I get the more I recognize that the log jam is not a bad thing, in fact, it gives you an opportunity to slow down and ask yourself how or why, you created the jam in the first place.  When we have some time, we can ask ourselves if it is better to choose a different path or try to move the sticks one at a time and see if it gets things moving.  Often the sticks in the jam are like a puzzle.  Choosing the right stick to move can really free the block.

A concrete example of this might be that you have decided to embark on a new career path.  Your new career will likely involve many decisions such as: going back to school, quitting your current job, moving, establishing new social circles or new relationships.  These are big decisions.  If you found that after a few months on your new path, things became stuck, it may require you actively making a decision on one of the “sticks”.  Maybe it means it is time to quit your job or enroll in night classes.

If after making decisions and moving sticks, nothing seems to be working, it might be worth seeing if the efforts are better spent choosing a different path all together.  Perhaps it is time to consider examining a new path or a new career?

How do you know whether to try and bust the log jam by moving sticks or carving a new path?  All things are revealed in silence.  The log jam is the perfect time to become mindful and listen carefully for the answer.  In meditation answers are not revealed in the obvious ways such as a voice but rather as a more subtle feeling.  Intuition is feeling like a subtle vibration that lets you know that this thought is creating energy.

It takes time to develop the feeling of the vibration rising up inside you but with practice you start to re-learn your intuitive abilities.  Sit in silence and ask yourself which direction is right for you.  Give it time and feel for the energy rising.  This is what we sometimes call, “go with your gut”.  We all have this ability but some of us have stopped trusting in the feeling.  It is time to start trusting again.  Life is too short trying to break a log jam that won’t budge; sometimes it is better to carve a new path in life.
