Whats your problem?

“My biggest problem is what to do about all the things I can’t do anything about.”

-Ashleigh Brilliant

Here are two questions to help you dis-solve any problem, sometimes even before you’ve created it:

1. What’s happening right now?

When you ask yourself or someone else what’s happening right now, you are asking
about what’s going on in their experience. This includes things going on both
inside and outside of your body and mind.

So what’s happening right now? What’s happening that we could all verify if we
were watching your life on video? What’s happening for you on the inside?

How about now?

And now?

The more you ask, the more you will come into the present moment – a place where
there are no problems, only internal experiences and externally verifiable facts.

2. Could I let go of wanting to change that?

If I had to nominate a single question that could change your life for the
better, it would somewhat ironically be to ask yourself if you could let go of
wanting to change your life for the better and allow things to be exactly as they
are – for now.

While most people seem to initially resist this question, it’s magic is that it
shows us the ways in which we are resisting nearly everything else in our lives.

It’s also important to note that letting go of wanting to change something
doesn’t mean not changing it. There is a big difference between ‘wanting to go
to the airport’ and ‘going to the airport’. Going to the airport is not problem;
wanting to go (and not doing it) might be.

Here are some variations on the theme…

*Whatever’s happening right now, could I just be with that?

*If I could wave a magic wand and be any way at all (peaceful, happy, loving,
patient, etc.) in relation to what’s happening, how would I choose to be right

*Could I allow things to be exactly as they are? (as in ‘Could I allow myself to
be as unhappy as I am right now?’ or ‘Could I allow myself to be as happy as I am
right now?’)
