“What if this is the crux?” I asked myself as Deepak and I went through our morning workout. Again and again I asked just a little more of myself.
The crux is the hardest part of the rock-climbing route, or anything that we do. It is often the point of no return. Once you make it through the crux, the end is in sight. And there could be more than one.
Sometimes I am in the crux all day long.
In working, in playing, in loving, in living – if we are really doing it, we will come up to the crux.
The crux brings me face to face with my perceived limits. But I take a break - take a breath - and a solution is here. Usually it is an inner solution of clarity and release, a subtle shift.
This is exactly the process for a breakthrough. And it all started by getting to the crux.
