GET OUT OF YOUR EMOTIONAL RUTS
When I traveled in the Arabian
Desert, I frequently found myself driving in deeply rutted
desert tracks. My Land Rover followed wherever the tracks led.
If I took my hands off the steering wheel, the truckís wheels
automatically followed the twists and turns in the track; it was
almost as if the Land Rover was on autopilot.
Getting out of a deeply rutted
desert track can be difficult and dangerous. If I drove too
fast, I could lose control of the vehicle as I tried to leave
the track. When I wanted to get out of a track, I always did it
slowly and in a controlled manner.
Ruts are a safety problem, and
you try to stay out of them so you donít have an accident or
damage your vehicle. Ruts also create navigational problems
since they take you where you donít want to go. Ruts exist
because a large number of people drove down a desert track in
order to reach a particular destination. If you happen to be
going that way, you donít have a problem. But if you want to go
somewhere else, you must get out of the rut in order to travel
where you want.
You are not going to change the
ruts you find in the desert; there is nothing you can do to make
them go away. They will stay where they are, and if you donít
like them, you simply stay away from them. The same is true for
the ruts in your emotional mind. If you donít want to go where
they take you, stay away from them.
Your emotional mind often
behaves like rutted desert tracks. Thousands of emotional ruts
take you to destinations you donít want to visit.
The ruts in your emotional mind
go by many different names. Negative thinking and fear create
massive ruts from which escape is difficult. Despair and
depression cut deep ruts that afflict billions of people. You
need a strategy to get out of the ruts that ruin your life. You
need to turn the wheel of change in a new direction and climb
out of the ruts controlling your life.
Although escaping from
emotional ruts isnít easy, itís possible. One of the best ways
to do it is with positive affirmations. If you turn the wheel
of change in a new direction, it wonít be long before you are
out of the ruts that have held you captive for such a long time.
