You’re not filled with any sense of meaning, or any sense of momentum, or you’re not sure why you’re doing any of it anyway.
When you feel this way, feel it.
Don’t try to get all pumped up and productive!
Don’t try to get all motivated and mojo’d!
Just let it be. Let yourself be, as you are feeling right now. Go adrift for a while, and let yourself admit that you don’t know:
• Who you really are.
• What you’re supposed to be doing.
• Why you’re living in this place.
• Why you’re living with that person.
• Why you’re doing this work.
• What it’s all about, anyhow?
Everything seems like a weird dream. Nothing makes sense. It all seems so strange, it’s all an illusion.
Let yourself go adrift from your particular identity: this body, this personality, this life, this work, these relationships, and recognize that you are multifaceted, and that you have many desires, and that many parts of you are not expressed, even if you are living a very expressive, authentic, creative life.
And especially, if you are not.
Just go adrift, and allow yourself to detach from all that identity, that personality, that ego, that “must do,” that “this is how it is” and just take a deep breath and smile and say, Maybe that’s how it is.
Or maybe it’s not.
When we go adrift, we free ourselves from the thinking pattern of this is how it “must be.”
Whereas of course, there are lots of ways to be and live.
Going adrift, for a few hours, for a day, for a series of days to get your head clear: all this helps you come to the understanding that how you live, who you live with, what you think about… nothing’s set in stone.
It’s all your choice.
