So what is my problem? What is occupying my mind 24/7? When I look at it for a moment without evaluation, I might be able to see what’s going on. Whatever my problem might be, it has little importance in the larger picture of my life. This might sound crazy, yet I say affirmatively what I say. Allow me explain. Whenever I fall in love, for example, the feeling takes over my space. It's like being obsessed. My natural balance to life is interrupted. Everything happening in my day can only be seen through my obsession. My authenticity has slipped from my hands. Likewise, looking at my biggest problem, regardless what it is, I am entrapped in a similar obsession in the fact that it's occupying my mind and clouding my essence.
This is me crashing on the particular, making an issue particular to me. My insistence on holding onto my preoccupation with my problem is blocking the immediacy to my life essence here now. Of course, hearing this through the heavy cloud of my problem-world is really not hearing it at all.
Whatever I persistently hold onto has to be something I emotively love. This persistent preoccupation with my problems gives them full occupancy in my mind. In so doing, I am allowing my precious space be taken over by this alien force. And life, being the great giver, supplies me with more and more problems to meet my demand for what is manifesting as my love.
So what is the solution? There is only one. Allow this message penetrate! In other words, see it exactly as it is. Then I might possibly wake up.
