Be Bigger than the Problem

The human egoic mind loves to focus on what is wrong – the problem. And when it is given license to do that, the result is unhappiness. Centering on what doesn’t work or what isn’t magically fixed according to your personal timetable brings on frustration and anger. It is the trick of the ego to run our lives – to be in control of the mind, mood, and outlook. But it doesn’t have to be that way. The truth is that who we are as energy, Spirit, and possibility is way bigger than the small ego centric, fear-based mind. A New York resident hosted visitors from a small town to his city. It was the first time they had been to a big city and they were overwhelmed and thought the place awful, dirty, and chaotic. Thus, Tom, the resident, decided to take his friends to the top of the Empire State building. He did this in the evening when the stars were bright, and the city lights were gleaming. In their view from the top of the building they could gaze out over the vast landscape and the sparkling city lights and observe the movement and flow of people. From this vantage point, they could see the beauty and life flow of the big city. “It is like a dance!” they exclaimed. “it is beautiful!.” Hence we discover that the point of view you take makes the difference in how you judge a situation. As you move above specific circumstances and observe from a higher dimension, possibilities open. The ego loves to keep the mind clamped down in judgment and it will always find “the problem.” Yet, at any time, we can walk away from the doldrums and drama of earthly life. We can let go of anxiety and annoyance and shift our perspective and as we view our circumstance from a different angle or dimension, we experience new choices and freedom. Jesus repeatedly went to the mountain to pray and meditate. We must do the same. We go to a higher perspective to release into our Greater Mind those things that seem bigger than we are and discover they are not. From this higher awareness, as we revel in the lightness and freedom of Spirit, material concerns disappear. We once again recognize that I AM greater than this moment and situation. The secret or the art to maintaining this higher focus is to remember to be in the world but not of the world. And, as we do that, we can experience our earthly journey without getting hooked into drama, impatience and fear. We can experience joy! The mind moves faster than the body and faster than the world. We see the correction and completion of the problem and yet it is not corrected or completed as fast as we want it to be. We are in a process. We must be willing to see it complete and yet go through the process, step by step. Slow down; enjoy the steps. With each step our mental vision syncs closer to material reality. Everything in good time. Find the rhythm and flow with it. Wholeness is achieved by going to the mountain (high place). In a way we must live there. We can view the earth as a movie or play from this high place, but we never leave the mountain. The mountain is our home.
