Between an Obstacle, a Roadblock and a Ganesh

Obstacles, Roadblocks and Detours surround me at the moment.  I haven't figured out why, but their presence is undeniable.

I had a mini-revelation yesterday, that my obstacles are stubborn like an elephant...which lead me to an image of the Hindu God, Ganesh - Lord of Success, Beginnings and Remover of Obstacles.

Can someone be both the source of, and the remover of, an obstacle? I think it's the same question about the devine residing both within you and being you.

"Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end", or so the saying goes.

If I could just "see" the new beginning, I'd feel more confident in my ability to climb over the obstacles, roadblocks and detours.

Time to source out my own, inner Ganesh.

  1. I think that many of us set obstacles to our own progress and, once we've done that, we are often the only ones who can remove them.

    Having said that, I don't really see you as the type of person who does that sort of thing.

  2. I feel very much like I'm being pushed off-course by the Universe and I don't know why. I don't think I stalled myself at all...
    But, I'm along for the ride irregardless of who's pushing the buttons.
