However, at some point one of the members remarked on the fact that there are, of course, situations when there is no solution. You may not be able to heal from your illness, you may not be able to find a job anytime soon, you may not be able to stop the bank from repossessing your home, you may not be able to keep your partner from walking out, you may not be given that promotion, and of course an infinite number of other examples could be listed.
So what do you do then? What happens to that proactive looking for a solution business when there is no solution? I believe that this can be answered very simply in just a few words: you then focus on how you will react to - and live with - this new situation. You may also wish to draw to mind some famous words by Krishnamurti spoken in the '60's when he was on the West Coast giving lectures. At one point he said to those who followed him and came to these lectures, that he realized they had not yet understood a fundamental point of his teaching, and that therefore, that evening he would tell them the secret to his happiness. It was this: the secret to my happiness is not minding what happens. (Click here to read another post on this blog with further explanations about this concept: Not Minding What Happens).
How you react and what you decide to do with your thoughts and feelings, are all a matter of choice. Is that easy? No. But it's learn-able and do-able. I've written a great deal about choice and you can click on the label under this post, or these articles that have previously appeared:

If you are wondering why this blog is now only appearing on alternate days (excluding Sat/Sun), it is because I also post on my other blog on the others days.
