Have I ever had times when I spent hours trying to figure out a solution to a problem, and finally gave up - only to have a solution appear magically out of thin air?
Sometimes, obsessing over a problem blocks the powers of my subconscious. The answer Im looking for lies just out of reach of my conscious mind, and all the thinking I do blocks it, in the same way that talking out loud prevents me from hearing someone elses whispers.
Maybe the same process is at work when Im struggling with certain problems in our relationship. Using my brain helps me find some solutions, but when all my thinking has failed in other cases, maybe its time to just let it go, and let my subconscious do the work from there.
Doing so frees me to live and enjoy the present moments. It helps me rediscover how precious the simple gift of life is. The more I stop "thinking" about my problems, the more inner calm Im able to discover. Sometimes, its like the answer is laying at the bottom of a small pool, and I can only see it once Ive stopped thrashing around, and given time for the water to become still and crystal clear.
Time is what we want most, but use worst. - William Penn
