ARE YOU THE PROBLEM OR THE SOLUTION?




For some time now I have subscribed to Neale Donald Walsch’s ‘On this day of your life, God wants you to know.’ If you don’t know who Neale is, he is the guy that wrote the trilogy of ‘Coversations with God.” Neale has not only sent me some very revealing information, but on many occasions he has sent me the very answer that I had been waiting for; one such being whether I should retire two years early from the classroom. In July of this year, it will be two years since I did retire early.

On Friday May 09, 2014, just after making a Mother’s day post on this blog, I checked into my email and found this information from Neale which had me thinking, so I wrote this post. Here is the information:
On this day of your life,
Leonard, I believe God wants you to know...   

...that there is a solution to every problem.

Nothing is insoluable. Nothing. Do everything that you
can to avoid the temptation of thinking that what is
facing you now is insurmountable. That is simply not true.

You cannot see the solution, of course, if you are
convinced it is not there. So you must have great faith
in life. Do you have great faith in life? Now would be a
good time to show it. Smile. Relax. It'll all be okay.

You will not have to think more than a second to
know exactly why you received this message today.

I found some comfort in these words as usual, as I was having some concerns about an issue.
However after looking deeper, I realize that Neale was just putting it the best way I could understand it.

There really are no problems nor any solutions!

These are just two words invented by our finite minds in order to understand or give some clarity to our earth experience. Our infinite souls know the truth. There are no problems and there are no solutions.
‘Problems’ and ‘solutions’ arise when we operate in reverse to the law; in this case, the laid down ‘law of attraction’ governing our earth experience. We tend to be action oriented, in a fast spaced arena where we rush headlong daily trying to get everything done, so that we can ‘have’ and then ‘become’ someone or something. Sadly, we were taught that way by our parents, teachers and community members.  Our modus operandi is DO, HAVE, BE.

We are creative beings, endowed with the gift of our maker, but the creative process only occurs from a position of BE, DO, Have or more clearly put: BEING then THOUGHT, then ACTION. Action is the last stage of the creative process and we seem to stay busy trying to make it the first to our absolute frustration!

This takes me back to an earlier post where I discussed that “success is based on our ‘now’ choices.”
You must choose to be (someone or something) now, because now is all that you have at your disposal. You cannot revert to yesterday or propel to tomorrow or the next minute and the next; these are only virtual tags used to make sense of the all-encompassing ‘now.’ Now is all we have! You must be the end result that you are seeking, now; meaning you should think it, feel it, taste it smell it, know it, believe it. Some call this creative visualization, but I think that is called FAITH! The important thing to note is that thought is the creative vehicle here.

Generating the faith through creative visualization, (especially under meditation at alpha and theta levels of the mind) you will be inspired to act in a certain way. This inspired action then will appear less of a struggle and will be accompanied by any number of synchronicities or so called ‘luck.’
So to get back to problems and solutions:  Your so-called problem arises because you have not yet stepped into any of the multiplicity of ‘now moment universes’ in which it does not already exist. The so-called solution appears when you step into any of the ‘now moment universes’ in which it already exists. In this sense we have neither problems nor solutions; what is, IS!

We trap ourselves in an endless dilemma when we create definitive tags like these. They arise, however, because of the ‘duality’ nature of our earth experience, designed to give us ‘free choice’
The closer we are to the problem, the further we are from the solution and the closer we are to the solution, the further we are from the problem. Hold your middle ground and you will have neither! You will just BE!
