We all have them, fed by these three resources:
Who I am,
What I have,
What I can do.
This is thin|silence: awareness of mind, heart, and will.
More often than not, though, the biggest obstacles we face lie within us, not around us:
‘By reinforcing the separation of people from their problems, problem solving often functions as a way of maintaining the status quo rather than enabling fundamental change … where problems often arise from unquestioned assumptions and deeply habitual ways of acting.’*
Many do not want to go sifting through the things inside of them, but as I’ve suggested elsewhere, this is a kind act, a loving act towards oneself. And it is the place people wanting to make a difference are prepared to go.
The life which finds its alternatives, is the life which is able to offer alternatives to others.
