  • The Anatomy of a problem

    The addiction of the mind can be really strong; it would like it's control back...

    Your noticing what the mind is doing, indicates that your identification with the problem is not that strong in this moment – you have some space between you and the problem to notice what’s going on.

    On the basic course CD's Hale talks about the 'Anatomy of a problem' and this gives lots of clues about what happens when we appear to have a problem.

    Here is a summary:

    He tells when you think you have a problem, the following cycle starts in our mind:

    1. We appear to have a problem
    2. We want to figure out what to do
    3. We defend, justify and/or explain the problem – we reject the problem and/or we reject ourselves for having the problem – we look for evidence a having this problem
    4. Because of these thoughts and believes the problem appears even more real
    5. Start at 1. again.

    In the background there always is our inner knowingness, but we tend to get caught up in this cycle.

    Hale explains there are quick solutions for this!

    At any point in this cycle, when you notice what is going on, you can step out of it by welcoming what is in the moment and letting go:

    • Let go of wanting to figure it out
    • Let go of wanting to to defend, justify or explain the problem
    • Let go of rejecting yourself for having this problem
    • Let go of rejecting the problem
    • Instead of looking for evidence of the problem, look for where it is not

    You can use this any time you start to think you have a problem.
