“After the Spiritual Honeymoon, there is a coming to terms with a new reality and way of being.
With spiritual awakening your motivation falls away.
Your personal will drains out of the system – to achieve, succeed, to be right, to be recognized. We can’t prepare for this. For most people there’s confusion as it disappears and flows out of you. Your references of what to do, why to do it, how to do it disappears. There is no personal desire. You don’t know what you want.
This is a limbo zone. There is relief from the relentless tyrant and inner critic driving you. Yet the new energy hasn’t come in yet.
It would be great if this universal direction appears, but for most people it doesn’t happen like this. There are a lot more people in this No Man’s Land now.
It is often ushered in by a powerful moment of transformation. This is the fulfillment of spiritual awakening and also a beginning. ”
I heard these words from Adyashanti and they really resonated with me. I feel like I too have experienced a no man’s land of awakening. This is a place to learn acceptance, being vulnerable, and above all trusting in the unknown in a new way.
… And in the meantime I continue to teach yoga and coach my clients to bring them to their middle ground, discover new perspectives and find acceptance and peace within themselves. From this place, anything becomes possible.
I am grateful to have found these wonderful soulful photographs by Elizabeth Gadd. They capture this moment of pause and reflection so beautifully.
