Sometimes the best way to solve a problem…

Zen Flash

Sometimes the best way to solve a problem is to first let go of the idea that there is a problem. This can be especially true with human relationships.

Sometimes we hold negative thoughts or feelings about someone. We may blame them for something they said or did. Those thoughts and feelings then block our hearts, influence the words and actions we take, thus perpetuating this “problem” with the other person.

Letting go of the judgmental thoughts and negative feelings we’ve been holding onto allows compassion, wisdom and gratitude to rise again, within us.

When we think and feel positively about the other person, we will speak to them differently, behave with greater kindness, so that gradually the “problem” is not so much solved, as dissolved.
