The problem is thinking there is a problem that needs a solution. It is a self created issue. Trying to solve it with their head may be difficult because it's all the thinking that made up some sort of problem to be solved to feel important or special - that we aren't aligned or thinking right or need to be more kind or appropriate.
I would not say that it is easy. It really depends on a range of factors. It could be very easy for me to change my thoughts about a certain matter, but very difficult for me to change my thoughts about another kind of matter.
Change is what real life is. There is no need to chase change. It happens with or without us noticing. Trying to make something change is trying to control life. I know it can feel like we get to think whatever we want. This was learned too. We were brought up to think that we decide and choose. I'm just wondering if that's true. It could be one big program that is running, unfolding and we are taking a ride.
However, many people will never even get that far, because they do not even see that the problem usually lies in their heads, and that the solution therefore lies in their own heads. |
If a person does not even see that, he won't even explore the possibility of changing his own thoughts.
What is that saying about the master's tools won't dismantle the master's house?
Or: "We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them."
