A problem-free life

What if there are no problems?

As you read this, now, this very moment, do you have a problem?

The answer will be no, a situation could arise and you will deal with it. Problems only occur when we label something as such and then the mind takes over. Also, when we are in our minds, the mind will project forward into the future and will imagine problems.

We can only deal with situations as and when they occur in the present moment, future problems are mind constructs and therefore cannot be dealt with as they are not real.

Problems give rise to psychological fears and they are completely different to present real physical dangers that we deal with by flight, freeze or fight.

There are no problems, just situations we choose to label as such and future mind projections of imaginary problems.

A problem-free life is a choice, one that any of us can make at any moment, it is that easy, stay focused on our life now and do not create labels for future events or current situations.

Unexpected

We are now almost unable to cope with unexpected.

We have been conditioned so long to safe, certain, risk-free, ironclad, sure things that when the wheels come off, we seem to go into individual or collective meltdown.

Human beings came from the plains of Africa 70,000 years ago to inhabit every corner of the globe and thrived on what was around the next corner, thrived on unexpected, relished the adventure that is the magic of life and overcame unbelievable obstacles and setbacks.

Now, if the milk is one day out-of-date panic breaks out.

Plain sailing never stays that way, look forward to the unexpected and drop the fear of it. Life is amazing when we do not know the outcome.
