Every time I think I'm on the right track I get hit with a rude awakening and I feel like I'm right back to where I started.why is it that I always think I'm on the right track in life and I end up at a roadblock.

I take a certain direction in my life,the only road I want to be on it just doesn't end up working out in my favor,it feels like it's the right way to go, full of excitement and joyful ness and then it just blowss up in my face.

if it feels right to me shouldn't it be the road that I should be on?I just want to know that I'm heading in the right direction, and if I'm not how do I find the right way to go. I feel like I've been stuck in a rut forever and can't climb out of it, does anyone feel like this? Or ever felt like this, if so what have you done to put yourself on the right path in life?

I just feel like I've been chasing my tail and don't know what to do. I know exactly what I want out of life but when I reach out to grasp it I feel like it just slips away. Has anyone gone through this? If so how did you overcome it? sorry for rambling

The road to where you want to be is a great analogy! Sometimes we are on a high speed highway in the direction we want to go , and other times it's a twisted up hill one lane dirt road. Yes it is important to follow you joy.

The thing I see missing in your question about this journey is your awareness about where you are at the moment. The Now in your journey. I find that if I take a step out of all the things that are not right. I see that those things are not happening right Now. Right Now the birds are singing and the sun is shining. If your happy in the moment the ruts will turn into small bumps along the way.
Abraham-hicks says "you will never get there" It's not about the destination , it's the journey that's important. or as quoted to the Buddha and expand by Souza

"Happiness is a journey, not a destination. For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. at last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. This perspective has helped me to see there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. So treasure every moment you have and remember that time waits for no one."

@ursixx That quote is exactly how I feel, like(my) real life is about to begin, then an obstacle comes along, and then another and another.As for the second part of your answer,my awareness at the moment, I am happy and I could be a lot worse off than I am now, thank you. But I see people living the life they want,(or living life the way they want to) and from my perspective they make it look so easy. I just want to feel like that too.

@TheBeardedDragon In the moment. The Now. When you truly find yourself there ,there is a sense of contentment and gratitude for everything. What "they " have becomes unimportant. What "they" becomes a feeling of lack in your when you focus on the not having. Thus attracting more lack.

In his new books, Seth gives lots of advice on how to connect with your higher centers of awareness. He calls these plans Regimens and he offers many different styles or dynamics to suit different personality types. But basically he suggests that we are on the planet to identify our Issues and learn our Lessons. When you do this successfully you have achieved Soul Evolution and you awaken to the truth of your personal and collective reality. But it is never smooth sailing. Inevitably the student falls off the path and into the abyss. You seem to be making progress and then wham, you are miserable.

Seth calls this dynamic Two Steps Forward, One Step Back. In these phases you are advised to focus your Reality Creation strategies by noticing what is on your mind at different moments in time throughout the day. You become aware of the specific negative ruminations that have helped you to create the negative reality of misery.

Then you can heal those negative ruminations by challenging them with your own positive ruminations. So you have this conversation with yourself over time, as to what thoughts, images and emotions you need to create in your consciousness in order to stay on the path to the Divine, and out of the abyss. Easy to say, hard to do. :)

@Mark Allen Frost the more you train the easier the "hard to do" becomes. Then there is the point where you choose not to call it "hard"
