Good day to all of you wonderful “ordinary guru seeking” tribe members. What a gift we are to each other. Do you agree? Your questions help me clarify what I want to know. And I hope my answers help you clarify what you want to know? Wow, one hand really does help wash the other, doesn’t it. Thank you for asking. Helena digs deep with this one – by asking, “how do I do that?” (see below)
I loved your book, And Then I Met Margaret. Wow, that really spoke to me. I needed that coaching. Can I ask you a simple question? You say to consider a problem rightly if you intend to solve it. How do I do that?
Much gratitude for your being here for us, Helena Banks
Thank you for the kind and generous words.
And here’s how you consider a problem rightly, Helena
Right now, take into consideration your problem, whatever that may be. It matters not it’s lightness or gravity. Now notice that there is a huge difference with how you look at the problem – (a) either you see the problem as a problem .. or .. (b) you see the problem as an opportunity.
Seeing a problem as a problem gives the problem life because your mind-set is troubling. A troubling mind-set and a problem live in the same psychological world together – they feed upon one another. Something higher than, “Woe is me, I’ve got a problem” is needed.
Seeing the problem as an opportunity requires that you be completely open-minded about it. What lifts the mind above the problematic mind-set so it can lift you above the problem? It is the willingness to see the entire matter differently. That means you look at the situation without whining or blaming or cursing. An open mind lifts the feeling of burden and then you have access to your natural creativity. Now you get things done rightly!
There you go, Helena. Blessings to you, Rob
Try it (what’s suggested above), you’ll like it. I promise you.
Blessings & love to all of you, Rob
Ps If you are to step out of the darkness and live in your own recovered light, you must be willing to see things differently so you can makes things right. Never, never, never forget that
