What a week! I'm glad that's over. This was a great meditation for me yesterday.
When action grows unprofitable, gather information; when information grows unprofitable, sleep. - Ursula K LeGuin
Sometimes we need to turn away from what's troubling us. Hanging onto a situation for which no solution is immediately apparent, only exaggerates the situation. It is often said the solution to any problem lies within. However, turning the problem over and over in our minds keeps our attention on the outer appearance not the inner solution.
Rest meditation, quiet attention to other matter, other persons, opens the way for God to reveal the solution. Every problem can be resolved. And no answer is ever withheld for long. We need to be open to it, though. We need to step away from our ego, outside of the problem and then listen fully to the words of friend, to the words that rise from our own hearts. Too much thinking, incessant analyzing, will keep any problem a problem.
I will rest from my thoughts. I will give my attention wholly to the present. Therein will come the solution and when least expected.
Have a wonderful week everyone!
