Staying In The Problem

Seeds X, 23

Seed: Staying In The Problem

Oooh, oooh, are humans good at this! I see it all the time in the various peace organizations on the planet. They say, “We must fight for peace.” Uh, I say, dear one, could I direct your attention to that screaming oxymoron? Fight? For peace? Not so much.

Being against something, anything, is a way of staying in the problem instead of being a part of the solution. I’d rather be part of the solution. Sure, we know that what’s happening in all kinds of places on this planet isn’t the best or highest good. Judging, another way of being against, isn’t the solution in Darfur or East Timor, or the South Bronx.

Ask yourself: are my ideas helping me stay in the problem or are they fostering a solution? Solutions are much easier to devise when we stop judging, stop being against, and start being for.

Be content,

Susan Corso
