The Problem and The Answer

The problem and the answer are pressing up against your mind. It murmurs in between your thoughts and hangs as if it were a picture on a wall.

It smolders behind your eyes and makes them droop with despair.

It’s an unsolved problem and unanswered question.

It soothes your soul and makes your heart eager to sing a song of victory.The Problem and The Answer

It waits patiently for you to turn to it as its primary existence is to make sure you always have a seat at the feast.

It’s a problem solver.

They are both in the same place and at the same time. They both wait with anticipation as to which you will serve.

One fills you with fear, worry and doubt while the other offers solace and solution for your burdened heart.

“To seek truth requires one to ask the right questions. Those void of truth never ask about anything because their ego and arrogance prevent them from doing so. Therefore, they will always remain ignorant. Those on the right path to Truth are extremely heart-driven and childlike in their quest, always asking questions, always wanting to understand and know everything — and are not afraid to admit they don’t know something. However, every truth seeker does need to breakdown their ego first to see Truth. If the mind is in the way, the heart won’t see anything.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kasse

When you think of what you need to solve, how do you feel? Does your spirit feel a sense of despair or is there a joy as you remember the words of Paul when he declared:

“I glory in my infirmities?”

Most think upon hearing those words, that it refers strictly to an illness. However, an infirmity is any situation that allows you the opportunity to choose whom you will serve.

An infirmity allows you to show you where your faith is planted.

It allows you to “walk the walk when you have talked the talk.” An infirmity says to you “show me your works so that you may see your faith.” Thus the reason Paul gloried in his opportunities to show who he would serve and you must understand that it was not easy for Paul as it is not easy for you.

When you have a problem to solve, you have on the right hand the power of the Creator and on the left hand the delusions of a destroyer. The Creator calms you and continues to remind you that all is well regardless of what your eyes are telling you.

The destroyer causes you to sink into depression as you believe the images that it shows. Both the problem and the solution rest in your thoughts.

When you realize that you have the choice on which mantle you will stand, the sense of despair begins to lessen. You realize that the Creator has never let you down and never will.

You understand that the destroyer has a job to do and is extremely good at creating this sense of doom and despair as it wants you to believe that all is not well. It causes you to wonder if your faith is solid as you feel the weight of your problem.

However, if you trust the Creator and dismiss the destroyer, you are using your free will which gives you the chance to glory in your infirmity and focus your attention on the solution instead of the problem.

This is all the Creator ask of you, to keep your eyes centered on him and not be dismayed by the illusions of the destroyer. So, please remember, both the problem, and the answers are within you and it is up to you on which you will focus.
