I have 99 problems... and today I'm going to write about Problem #1.
Here's the thing. It's easy to come up with problems, isn't it?
And the fun part is - you can come up with solutions!
This is a great pandemic of our society: Fixing, Fixing, Fixing, and more Fixing of things that don't actually need to be fixed at all!
Read: Creating problems that really don't exist.
The underlying belief of that?
There's something wrong with us and we need to be fixed.
Do you see?!
Isn't it oddly satisfying to come up with a problem? Ah hah! There we go. Now I know what's wrong.
Confirmation that we're right. There is something wrong with the world. Us.
BUT - that's not enough. Problems are problems. And the answer is to fix problems. What is the point otherwise? Just sit in your shitty pile of problems?
So fixing the problem is the perfect solution.
You see how this continues and continues and continues?
It's a never ending cycle. When we fix a problem (yay!) we get momentary satisfaction and then we find another problem to fix. And another. And another. The more we solve problems the more problems we'll have.
Now we've identified the Problem of all Problems. Why do we do this?
Now ask yourself this question: What is the payoff of the problem-solution cycle?
And even with all of those benefits, here's what the Problem is costing me:
Now ask yourself this question: What is this Problem-Solution cycle costing you?
Now I have another question for you: What is Possible outside of Problems?
Notice when you create unnecessary problems. Notice what it's costing you. Choose a new Possibility. Take action.
Ontological Coaching is designed to have you choose outside of your current "problems" and create your life from an entirely new place. You get to create results that never seemed possible before.
This post serves as a reminder for me to listen to my heart.
You may not know just how much time I spend in my head.
But if you spend any time with me you might have a good idea.
Most of the time I'm questioning, doubting, wondering, trying to figure things out.
Analyzing, judging, and totally stuck.
Even as I'm writing this post I'm searching... trying to find the right answer. What is the science of the heart? Where is the proof that it works?
My heart reminds me that there's nothing wrong.
There's no proof of that either... There's no proof that anything is wrong.
Our head will find the proof though. We will make up stories.
The brain can be trained to look for the solutions too. It is a powerful tool.
The heart can't be trained.
The heart can't get confused. Though we think it does. Maybe our brains our just too afraid (see previous post) to hear the truth that the heart is saying?
The heart knows
The heart is wise
The heart beats. It breathes. It lives. It is made of Truth. It's the organ of Love. It's the organ of Life.
What's sad to me is that we believe the stories of our mind. If we just listened to our hearts we would Know.
This serves as a reminder for me to listen to my heart.
Practice trusting my heart.
Seek forgiveness for the times I don't.
Always come back to Truth
Thank you for reading <3
