Really.. i don’t mean it sarcastically i mean it literally. Most of us spend time making effort after effort to change things, to change situations and worst of all to change people! It is not the problems that need fixing, it is the way we are thinking about it that does. Sometimes just a simple shift in the way we look at a problem could result in the instant evaporation of the problem itself.
So the next time you are faced with a big problem, instead of freaking out and springing into action right away, take some time. Meditate on it. Sleep on it. Visualize the outcome that you want to have. FEEL the outcome that you want to have.
If the problem hasn’t fixed itself by then, then ask your higher self what the path is to take. That will at least be the one of less resistance!
