Being stuck in physical, mental and emotional patterns is particularly unfortunate if you are seeking spiritual growth, which is to say transformation into increased energy flow and deeper awareness. The deepest state of awareness lies at the core of being and is referred to in various spiritual traditions by many different names. However it is named, this pure awareness is free from the limitations of judging and focusing and itís free from attachment to activity as well as to the use of language. Itís beyond analysis, thought constructs and problems. Itís beyond attachment to patterns. It just is. Pure awareness is nothing but pure being, the universal I of total openness and unconditional love. Itís ready to recognize and digest, with gratitude, all that life brings: joy, pain and awe inspiring mystery. Itís prepared to relate to whatever life brings as an opportunity for surrender and service. Itís the higher Self. In recognition of and immersion in this Self, the lower self of ego patterns and limitations needs to be incorporated, transformed and transcended. The higher Self requires by its very nature that you transcend the patterns you have developed. Being on auto-pilot is a major hindrance. It acts as a hard shell that keeps you from the transformation you are seeking.
