There comes a time on our spiritual journey when we run out of road, we have to admit that we cannot go any farther and we have three choices, to quit, to figure out how to continue on the current road or to find a new road. Each choice has its benefits and drawbacks, one is not better than another. What we choose depends on how much awareness we have and whether we are ready for the new road, which could be anything from a completely different road to a new mindset to a new way of looking at ourselves.
When we're feeling tired, stuck, and depressed feeling, beaten down by life and everything that has happened to us is where we have run out of road. And we've had enough. We want to quit. We think our efforts have failed but it is only the end of the road we're on. It is a turning point, where every reason for being open to transformation is revealed to us. And all of us are at that point. Sometimes that point takes us back to the place where the road began. This is happening to me this week as I'm back at the beginning of my road, in the place where I began channeling Archangel Uriel and started this newsletter.
This turning point may be presented as a new opportunity that terrifies us, or something that disrupts the status quo to the point that our life will never be the same again. But as scary as the change may be, we also know that it can no longer continue the way it is. Something has to change and we know, even if we do not want to admit it to ourselves, that the change has to occur within us. This is our moment of truth-are we willing to be our true selves? Are we willing to be open to a new road?
We are all running out of road because our current path no longer suits our new post-healing purpose. Some of us will be taken back to a point where we can gather our scattered energy and make new choices. We will have the opportunity to reclaim our power so we can create a new path. Others will be presented with new pathways that may be terrifying but they speak to their most cherished dreams. And when we realize that running out of road simply means that our path has opened to new opportunities that are waiting for us to choose from among them, running out of road becomes a chance to allow all of the work we have done and the learning we have acquitted to take us in new directions.
