Spiritual Limbo: is it time to exit your cave?

Do you feel stuck in limbo?

In our recent dialogues we’ve been exploring Limbo Land. I have a feeling we are going to spend a lot of focus on this topic. Perhaps I should dedicate a new series: Limbo Lounge.

We start off with the question Why am I here? In Limbo—not asleep, not fully awake?

I’ve learned through personal experience, as well as mentoring others, that people who have fully awakened as well as those who are not awake, but have fallen some ways down the rabbit hole can end up in Limbo Land.

So the question is, now what? Are you destined to remain suspended in this spiritual amber? If not, how does one leave the cave? If you’ve lost your context in life, where do you find an authentic source of motivation, action, engagement?
