Simply, Utterly Lost

It has been five months since I have sent out a newsletter. Honestly, I did not have anything to say. I have been lost. Sliding slowly into emptiness, losing everything I thought that I believed in. I have grasped wildly, journaled furiously, fasted, sought out spiritual healers, hypnotherapists, books, articles, and mentors. Only to lose all sense of who I am.

I am nervous as I type to reveal this secret to you, but as I venture to open up to a friend here or a connection there, I am finding that more and more people are going through the same thing. Life as we knew it seems to be falling away. Motivation gone. Purpose nowhere to be found. Anything solid has dissolved. This is a ridiculously uncomfortable place to be in. Although, somehow I feel that it is necessary.

I wish I had answers for your. Heck, I wish I had answers for me. All I can say is that we are having a human experience. So often in the self-help industry, it is believed that if you can affirm enough and in the right way, if you visualize and live in the present moment, if you release limiting beliefs and heal your inner child you can ascend to a place from which you can control your destiny. This, in an of itself, is an attachment. We become attached to the idea that somehow we need fixing because we are human. We need fixing because we get sad and angry and fearful. We need fixing because we see our reality as ‘real.’ We need fixing because we don’t have it all figured out. We need fixing because we are not millionaires or do not have perfect health or the most unconditionally loving relationship. I’m tired of needing to be fixed. I am tired of searching for the fix and pressuring myself to provide the fix. I am ready to let control go. I am ready to be honest, ready to be human. I am ready to finally accept that I’m lost.

Today, I want to remind you, and remind me, that it is okay to be where we are. It is okay to be lost for a while. Maybe lost leads somewhere. Maybe becoming lost is necessary to truly, authentically, be found.

Journal Exercise:

Close your journal. Sit and be lost, feel lost, embrace lost without trying to find something.
