Episode 10, June 2021: A New Bridge
I’m sure you’ve heard the well-worn snippet of wisdom that says “don’t burn your bridges.” It’s commonly used in the context of supporting someone who’s going through a job transition. The idea is that you don’t want to damage the goodwill of your previous employer as you are looking for a new job, presumably because you might need that goodwill in the form of a positive reference for any prospective employer you happen to meet. In this sense, the idea of not burning bridges seems like a pretty good one.
But I’ve been thinking about this a lot, and one thing that came to my mind is this: while it might not be a good idea to literally burn the bridge, which implies a level of vindictiveness and even violence, on some level, it might be a good idea to sever the relationship as gracefully as possible. Otherwise, if I find myself in an uncomfortable situation, I might risk crossing that bridge back into familiar territory. In other words, that bridge may just be a way back into my comfort zone!
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not knocking comfort. I mean, it’s great to be comfortable, isn’t it? Life just flows along, there are no real problems, everything seems so sweet and cozy, all your needs are met, there is nothing you really need.
And yet, I think we can agree that comfort can go too far.
Some people create a whole world of comfort for themselves.
Because they are looking to keep themselves safe in the world, they surround themselves with people, circumstances and possessions that seem to satisfy them at first, but which end up giving them an incomplete, or even totally false, sense of security.
Here are a few examples of what I’m talking about.
So, if you want to experience the joy, satisfaction, and fulfillment of being a fully empowered human being, I encourage you to accept my invitation to build a new bridge out of your Comfort Zone and into your Growth Zone! Take the risk to discover just how amazing you really are! Build that new bridge into your Growth Zone, and begin your journey toward complete soul-alignment and spiritual purpose that will automatically reduce your struggle, and put you firmly on a path of fearless, focused, committed action in your life.
