We all go through struggles in life and this means we also search for solutions to those struggles. The hard part about finding these solutions is tuning in to your heart and finding your answers from within. This is difficult because of all the external inputs we get that guide us along the way at the beginning of our contemplative journey as individuals. So how can you turn a struggle around for you? How can you find that right solution for you through your heart and using the external inputs to actually help you identify your heart?
It all starts with you wanting to overcome your struggle and looking for solutions. In the absence of you searching for the right solution there would be no solutions to consider. So, it is thanks to those struggles that come your way that you are pushed to look at different ways to overcome an uncomfortable situation.
In time, you can tune in to your heart by listening to those solutions that you were told were the right solutions, but that don’t seem to be solving your struggles. As you follow those solutions there will continue to be unsettling feelings from within and it is these feelings you want to pay attention to so that you can find your solution.
Once you identify the uncomfortable feeling inside of you that takes place every time you take action according to someone else, it is then that you can start contemplating different solutions that you want to test out. You think of ways to find harmony within and this search is what will reveal your right solution.
The other part of the puzzle is remembering that you can learn from your struggles. By turning your struggles into opportunities, you transform struggles into things that happen in life, but that you can resolve in time through the love you have for yourself and the heightened awareness you have of those solutions that aren’t working for you.
As you go through these steps you will find that you change your perspective and adopt only solutions that resonate with you from within. These solutions, the ones that match your heart’s desire, are the right solutions for you. It is only when you identify these opportunities that you can stop seeing them as a struggle and work with yourself at a deeper level.
How do you feel about struggle? And what have you done to find your ‘perfect solution’?
