Einstein said, you can't solve a problem from the same level of consciousness that created it. What that means is, when we’d use our hands as a barometer to show how we were feeling, then if we're feeling a certain wideness and we have a problem in front of us while we're feeling this, then that problem is equal to the distance between our left hand and our right hand.
Now, if the problem is equal to how we're feeling, we don't have the ability to solve it. Because we're equal to it. It's like being in front of a tree and not seeing what's on the other side of the tree until we step back. So we actually have to create a feeling inside of our body, that creates more expansiveness, more inspiration inside of our body, so that we're feeling more expanded. When we're feeling more expansive, that problem that existed when we were feeling more contracted is much smaller. It's still something we might have to deal with. There's still decisions we might have to make. But it is much, much less overwhelming. Now when we feel even more expansive, that problem that was equal to our contracted state is like a pebble in the sand. You just have to step over it.
But when we forget who we are, what happens is we contract. So all of a sudden that problem that we had when we started becomes overwhelming. How in the hell are we going to figure it out? We're going in the wrong direction. But it feels comfortable to us to go in the wrong direction because that's how we've been patterned in our lives. We have to work at reminding ourselves, not to go into contraction, no matter how good it feels to go into contraction. And I know it doesn't really feel good to go into contraction, but it feels good because we wouldn't be doing it if it didn't feel right. You see, when I’m up against something and I'm about to hit the wall, do I just want to hit that wall harder? Or I want to just throw myself on the bed. That's what feels good. Even though it doesn't feel good, that's what feels good. It takes work to stand up straight and figure out how to become more expansive.
That's what this work is about.
