When things don’t seem to be working we become frustrated, lack energy and become impatient. We can’t see how we are ever going to turn things around, get out of the mess, fix problems and situations, change jobs, restore relationships, get out of debt, or push grown dependent children out on their own etc..
When we are faced with problems we try to typically solve them in a particular way, and in most cases we use the same pattern of problem resolution, which doesn’t seem to work anymore. We cannot get new results using old methods.
Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved. ~Matthew 9:17 KJV
As we try harder and exert more energy to attempt to force the outcome or solution we find ourselves stuck and trapped in a situation with no answers and no energy to move forward feeling depressed and angry that we are not able to control our own lives.
When things are not working no matter what we have tried, we are in our head. We are refusing to allow new ways of thinking to emerge so that we can find new solutions. We are engaged in a process of factors and logical thinking where we calculate attempts to force an outcome to control both the solution and the timing of the manifestation through our own efforts.
Caught in a mental loop of attempting to solve problems with the same methods keeps us running the same cycle with no results. We have to find new methods to solve problems by going within to get still, and then using this new awareness to build our education, knowledge and problem solving skills through new insight and information.
Things will never work out if we are not willing to grow and we will continue to be stuck and depressed in the same mess. This cements a belief that L.I.F.E. is hard and that we simply are not cut out for whatever it is that we dream to experience.
If things are not working and not flowing in our experience, we need to understand that L.I.F.E. is trying to tell us something. IT is trying to tell us we need to be still and go within and find new resolutions and answers. When things are not working out it is an indication that it is time to change your problem solving skills, and that you need new POWER to create new results. We do this my letting go and detaching from the issues. We stop trying so hard.
We need to stop and discover the lesson and find if we are going the right direction. Things just may not be working out because we are forcing ourselves to go down the wrong path, doing the wrong thing, feeling the wrong emotions, and attached to the wrong outcomes.
Through self-mastery, we sit with the issues of L.I.F.E. and find the lessons in them. It is a process of meditation, contemplation and reflection to take action on new answers and problem solving skills that surface from our stillness to resolve new problems and issues.
By letting go we KNOW God. In Knowing God we go within and discover our POWER. Suddenly, a new path will emerge with new solutions that are appropriate to move us forward. Through this process of centering we find the answers emerge clearly in the quietness of letting go over the urgency, frustration and desperation of pushing harder and getting no results.
Through self-mastery, we recognize when something isn’t working or isn’t flowing and step back and wait; meditate and have patience that Spirit is granting us a new method for problem resolution because we are faced with a new problem or issue and in need of new answers. We gain clear guidance and step into our own POWER and find L.I.F.E. manifesting the desires of our heart as we continue to go within to find new answers; the ones grounded in the freshness of Spirit that move us forward into our Greatness.
