“Your problems cannot be solved at the same level of consciousness at which you perceive them. The answer is always on a higher level than the problem. That is why the problem exists in the first place—to draw you to a higher awareness. If you approach the difficulty from the same level at which you have been struggling, you will find yourself going in circles. If you are in such a dilemma, you must stop and ask, “What is the highest way of looking at this? What will love show me that fear has disallowed? What is the blessing in this?” Your answer will follow on the trail of one of these questions.
Problems are not punishments; they are invitations to a higher way of thinking…The solution to life’s challenges is spiritual, not material. Remember that we are spiritual beings. Our purpose here is to identify with our true nature. Everything in the physical world exists in the service of this noble quest.”
Alan Cohen, in “Dare to Be Yourself”
