The wise have one foot in insanity, and the sane have one foot in the grave.
How do we switch our state into problem solving? We’re heavily taught more to problem solve then to create. You switch your state into problem solving with the realization of a condition in which that event, whatever it is, is permitted. It can be a useful practice to deliberately imagine problems. Practice that. It might get uncomfortable though, as you will come to the realization that any problem you perceive is imagined.
You lose the perception of a difference between the so called real problem and an imagined one, but that mindset is still too narrow. It is an attempt to break things down when they can’t be. Everything is interdependent. Reality is seamless. So the special case that any analytical thought requires, in order to retain its integrity, is automatically lost. Then we try to fix and focus on the problem when it occurred from a larger cause than what the problem would appear to be.
So problems are created when we break the world into parts and have to put it back together instead of seeing it as a co-arising whole? We can never fix it because the so called cause we’re looking for isn’t there? The cause both is and isn’t there. That’s a strange paradox, but I can explain. The reason we lose our grip on problem events is because we think the event is the source. Events are never sources. They are just halos of energy.
It seems the experiences humanity seeks right now break down the world. Why do we wish to experience the breaking apart of the world? Because we have decided we want to experience control, and the controlled heart is dead, doesn’t beat, doesn’t change. We want to experience control because it is currently what we define as prosperity.
But if the universal sea experiences this all, through us, why does it wish to experience this? Through us and as us. Because there are factors beyond the confines of our own world that also learn from this and will respond to it, and by beyond I don’t necessarily mean alien.
