To attain inner freedom, you must be able to objectively watch your problems instead of being lost in them. No solution can possibly exist when you are lost in the energy of the problem. Everyone knows you can’t deal well with a situation if you are anxious, scared, or angry about it. The first problem you have to deal with is your own reaction. You will not be able to solve anything outside until you own how the situation affects you inside.
Problems are generally not what they appear to be. When you get clear enough, you will realize that the real problem is that there is something inside of you that can have a problem with almost anything. The first step is to deal with that part of you. You have to break the habit of thinking that the solution to your problems is to rearrange your things outside. The only permanent solution is to go inside and let go of the part of you that seems to have so many problems with reality. Once you do that, you’ll be clear enough to deal with what’s left.
