Never ending 30 minutes

When we start a journey, we never know what will happen from the beginning till the end but we know we are in the path that will take us to a destination. Many times we face obstacles during the journey. We fall down. We get sad and discouraged. We get tired. We get sick. We get demotivated but when we look at the destination, we remember why we are in this journey and what we want to accomplish.

Last weekend, my Priestess sister and I went on a pilgrimage to the Goddess Temple of Orange County. During our journey, we went very fast for the first few hours and then when we arrived in Los Angeles, time stopped. Every time we looked at the GPS Estimated Arrival Time, we were always 30 minutes away. Yes! We were 30 minutes away for about 2 hours... During this experience, I couldn't help but think all those times when we have been dealing with a situation that seems to go nowhere and we are stucked in the never ending 30 minute period. No matter what we do, we are always at the same point. This may be in a different situation, in a different place, with different people but stuck in the same minute 30 and we seem to move nowhere. During those moments, we are like the Hangman Card in the Tarot. We have to surrender with the hope that we will achieve illumination during those periods of stagnation and lack of movement. How many times have you felt you were stuck in a situation and you were going nowhere? Did that situation make you feel you were moving further away from your destination? Was it just a rock in the path? My sister and I made it to Los Angeles and had a wonderful time there. We surrender to the never ending 30 minutes and reached our destination.

When you feel stuck or stagnant, just breath, relax and let it pass you by. In the end, if you keep your focus in mind, you will reach the destination. Perseverance and patience are a requirement.

Many blessings )0(
