This is lesson 28 in the series "Conquering Codependency - Loving Without Leaning" looking at aspects of codependency from a spiritual point of view.
Problems seem to be part of living, but they have solutions that can come to mind from clear and balanced thinking.
Personal peace and harmony are generated from our deep core, and when another is out of balance we are most helpful remaining in this deep core of peace in order to view issues clearly.
Compassionate listening to anotherís problems, plus maintaining peace of mind leads to creative thinking - new ways of seeing situations.
Take some time to sit quietly with your journal. Begin with even breathing to get centered, such as breathe in counts 1, 2; breathe out counts 3, 4; breathe in counts 1, 2; and continue the rhythm of this pattern without actually saying the numbers.
To begin with your journal, write the problem down as a title. Then, record all thoughts as they arrive without judgement, forming a running list.
Below the original list write down useful ideas that come to mind, think them over - perhaps putting one or more into practice.
This quiet journaling meditation is a chance to clearly and without emotion or outside influence objectively view the issue at hand.
Making decisions from your own deep clarity gives confidence that problems do have solutions, to be found by taking the time to quietly delve within one's own creative mind.
