In our efforts to understand who we are and our place in the world, we often get stuck.
We get stuck on limited perspectives of who we are or what we can do.
We get stuck on a partial understanding the whole picture in front of us.
The view ahead becomes obscured, we don't always know the next best step to take.
We get stuck in the details, unable to take the higher view or to understand the broader context.
This is what it means to be confused. Confusion feels like being stuck, unsure, or scared of the thing that is ahead of us. You might be alert, mindful, and trying to be fully present, and yet still be confused.
Wherever there is confusion, there is still fixation on something. You are holding onto something. Figure out what that thing is, and let it go.
