When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.
“Dear Deepak, I feel stuck, for a year or more.
I have been meditating regularly for two years now and I truly feel a connection with God but in the meantime feel like I’m in a cube of glass, in the world but not in the world.
The friends have vanished, no new projects, even though I am in perfect health, I feel wonderful and everything is ok with my family and me.
It looks like contracted awareness as you wrote in Spiritual Solutions but maybe I cannot understand.
What should I do?
Thank you for inspiring me. And for all your work in the world!”
You don’t need to do anything in particular to get unstuck.
You only need to find that inner flow of life within you and identify with it.
The natural growth of awareness will naturally move you past this experience of feeling stuck.
The experience of mild dissociation you reported can be a normal, but temporary stage of self-awareness as consciousness comes to realize it is not the body or the thinking mind.
As this awareness ripens, it knows itself as something different from the mind and body,—something more permanent than sensations and thoughts.
As this experience/understanding becomes more familiar and comfortable, you will feel your new self, your true self will begin to re-engage with the world with feeling, but now your true self will no longer be defined and limited by your thoughts, sensations, and feelings.
That is why it is called a state of freedom.
