Chinese handcuffs

Sometimes we struggle and struggle to be free of a situation or to make something happen. When this occurs, maybe it is better to just be still and let go-- too much energy may be working against you-- like-- clogging up the pipes, so to speak. Or-- think of it like this. If you slip your fingers into Chinese handcuffs, then pull-- you will make them tighter and tighter on your fingers. But when you surrender-- and push (perhaps counter intuitively)-- you find yourself free. So, if you find you are wearing yourself out, trying too hard-- think of chinese handcuffs and see if maybe letting go and even backtracking or going in the opposite direction frees things up a bit for you.
