Imagine all of the obstacles you’ve overcome in your life. Now compare them to this current obstacle. Maybe you can acknowledge that:
- They are not so different.
- They are predominantly problems of the mind.
- If you can let go of outcome and focus on the fact that all of your problems to date have been solved, you will cultivate the faith to deliver resolution directly to your doorstep.
There is a Zen koan that says: “The rock that is in the way is the way.”
Doesn’t that suggest that density and magnitude and duration of the obstacle are no different, from one to the next, except in the mind? And that the mind, therefore, is the real problem?
And also: the solution.
Change your mind, change your reality.
As Echart Tolle says, “No mind? No problem!”
If you can use the formula I’ve outlined on this page to acknowledge our oneness with each other, then you’ll realize you have the aid of all human beings at your disposal, and that aid will come to you in ways you can’t have anticipated.
Who am I to be talking about this stuff?
I am nobody. And I am everybody. I am someone who is following his curiosity and sharing what he finds.
I love you. Thank you for being my guides. We’re all in this together!
