There are ten important things I need to do and I’m not doing any of them. The thing is, I totally know why. It’s because I’m fearful about something.
When my spirit, my inspiration, my soul wants to express itself out in the world and the one I call “I” that is my ego gets in the way and blocks my expression, I stop dead in my tracks.
The blockage creates stagnation and the feeling of “stuckness”. It’s an icky feeling. At the same time, a necessary one.
Without it I wouldn’t recognize its opposite, which are the feelings of motivation and inspiration, ones that I wish to experience to their fullest, and lie beyond the sticky frozen stuckness that I presently feel.
So, as Elsa sings, I need to “Let it go, let it go!”
The ice is melting…..I can already feel it!

….mirror images….the “devil” on my left shoulder, poking me with it’s pitchfork while my “angel” speaks kindly to me on my right.
Why do I listen to the pokey-pitchfork-devil-annoying thing more often these days than not?
The answer is: because I am living from my ego. Plain and simple.
When my psyche is telling me I am to complete a task, even as mundane as bringing out the trash, and instead I sit down and turn on the television, I am living from ego.
Now, I am not always conscious of this. Why am I not conscious? Because ego is running the show.
How do I become conscious? Through awareness of my resistance toward whatever it is I am choosing not to do. Any task or undertaking that enters my consciousness is there because it is supposed to be there. When dismissed by ego, I have become temporarily stuck to it, unable to move into the next moment with ease.
Now, for that garbage….
