Stretching a Stiff Spirit

"What is common to all of us is the spiritual block: the experience of spiritual stiffness, the soul's standstill in the midst of life's unfolding, that place where the air is stale except perhaps for a recurring mirage. The reasons for finding ourselves in such a place are many, but we have in common the experience of wrestling through it. When we do not engage or contend with our spiritual blocks, stiffness sets in. At that point for me, writing becomes necessary to stretch my spirit, to pull against the paralysis, to feel the burn of easing those tight places."
