When at the end of the road


When at the end of the road, turn around…

Do you know the feeling of arriving at a ‘no way out’ point in your life… no matter the subject, but the feeling is the same : you’ve done everything you can, you have thought it over a million times, you have been looking for an answer in every corner of your life, you gave the best of yourself and more… and yet something doesn’t seem to work out the way you need it to be, something holds you back (be it inside of you – or perhaps you experience it outside of you…) … you arrived at the end of that particular road somehow… you know that there are many roads out there, but right now you are on this one, and you see no way out.

I know this feeling very well… got myself in there in so many ways on so many occasions …
One day someone said, “You are good at transforming extreme situations, that’s why you are great at offering people crisis management.” Can’t say that I was happy with that statement then, but it was nevertheless true.

So what to do at the end of the road… ? Is it such a bad place to be…? Or does it depend on what we do, which decisions we take at that point? Perhaps it’s not so bad at all? Perhaps we can even benefit from it…? Imagine that : benefiting from being somewhere you don’t want to be… at least that would make the experience worth something, wouldn’t it?

In fact being at the end of the road feels a little like being on the edge also… usually fear keeps us paralyzed… keeps us from taking the leap, keeps us from finding the way out.

And when (maybe, and just for a little moment) we can switch to the position of the observer there is so much to see, so much to learn at that very unbearable point in our life.

But first of all : stop fighting the very fact that you are ‘at the end’ – stop trying to get out!
Just look around, watch, take a few minutes to look at the situation in a 360° angle : in front of you perhaps the abyss, or the mountain or the huge wall without doors… and to the left, and to the right … try to physically imagine your situation. What do you see at both sides of you?
And then, turn around … look at the road you came from… look at your feet… what is it that you are standing on… and then … look up to the sky…

No, it doesn’t matter if there are solutions… what matters the most is that you take these few moments for yourself… to stop fighting, to be the observer, to look around for a while… look from how far you came running already, remember how much strength you already had to have to get to where you are right now… even to run away you needed strength… that’s yours!
Even to hit with your fists against the walls in your life, you needed strength and perseverance… look at you … you have it… for now it doesn’t matter if the wall is the right one, or if you THINK that you have done everything wrong and that it is your fault that you arrived at the abyss…
It doesn’t matter at all who’s fault it is… just look once more… and feel that it is your soul that has brought you to this extremely important opportunity to experience this unique experience…
Just keep standing, keep turning around… not to find a way out… but to look around… to see, to feel the full abundance of information at that very spot… keep turning, and turning, not thinking that you need to find a way out, just observing, just being present, nothing more, no effort, no need to run, or to get out …

I promise : before you know you will see yourself stepping through the wall, flying over the abyss or running down the hill (without effort and with joy) because something out there will catch your attention… and you will be free again (as you always were anyway)!

If only you can stop fighting yourself for one little minute… and remember to keep returning to that minute any time – even ‘at the end of the road’ you will feel how much love and lust for life there is inside of you, how much strength and how much wisdom…

Come on, join me on the merry go round… that’s all there is in life… take one more turn around … and go on, … FLY!

In the past 51 years I walked, ran, crawled… many roads on an ongoing journey to discover the inevitable freedom of the soul,  the joy of being alive, the value of the teacher we call pain, the depth of human wisdom and the meaning of human madness. I have been deeply touched by the kindness in the eyes, hearts, words and helping hands of friends, teachers, soulmates, … even strangers. I have been all of that and all of them. The most valuable lesson I have ever learned is that ‘there’s nothing to fear’.  For the next 51 years I am committed to share this awareness in everything I do. It’s a joy to share this blog with sisters so close to my soul and touching your life with my words fills me with deep gratitude. May these words carry the love from my heart to yours.

  1. This is so true, Loesja! Removing ourselves from the drama of the conflict and just observing it can be so peaceful. All of us have problems in life, be it financial or within our relationships, and somehow we all manage to get through it. “This too shall pass”…and we will be stronger and wiser for it. Thank you 🙂

    • Yes, your words could be the title of this article 🙂 ..; removing ourselves from the drama of the conflict… makes us strong, for we learn that we are not tied to it ! Thank you for your comment !
