CLB 035: The Only Problem You Really Have

only problem

What’s the only problem you really have?

What is the one illusion that most of us believe, that if we were to question it, to let go of it, would solve all of our so-called problems?

Big set-up, I know.

Have a listen to this podcast episode and decide for yourself if I “deliver’ on the answer 😉

Key Points Re: The Only Problem

  • Have you ever done, thought, or felt anything outside of the now? Is it possible for anything to happen or be outside of the now?
  • Nothing ever happened in the past. Nothing will ever happen in the future. It all happens in the now, in the present.
  • Time is an illusion.
  • All suffering stems from resistance to what is in this moment, an unwillingness to accept the present moment and allow it to be as it is.
  • Right now you may believe that your suffering or problems are due to specific situations in your life, but your so-called problems are interchangeable. If all of your problems were miraculously removed from your life today, but you did not become more present, you would soon find yourself in a similar set of circumstances, with a new set of problems, but problems nonetheless.
  • Ultimately, there is only one problem: buying into the illusion of time, believing the past and future as reality.
  • When you eliminate time, you eliminate ego. Because ego can only exist in the past or future. Ego cannot exist in the present moment.

I encourage you, right now, in this moment to make a choice for yourself: No matter what happens, I will create no more pain for myself. I will create no more problems.

Say it aloud. Say it until you mean it. Say it until you feel it as truth deep down in your soul.

Say yes to whatever is happening in the present moment. Let go of any resistance to being in the here and now, to experiencing this moment just as it is. It already is, so why fight it?
