No Problems Here, Only Mysterious Blessings
By Jafree Ozwald
There is a famous Chinese story of an old farmer who had an old horse for tilling his fields. One day the horse escaped into the hills and, when all the farmer’s neighbors sympathized with the old man over his bad luck, the farmer replied, “Bad luck? Good luck? Who knows?” A week later the horse returned with a herd of wild horses from the hills and this time the neighbors congratulated the farmer on his good luck. His reply was, “Good luck? Bad luck? Who knows?” Then, when the farmer’s son was attempted to tame one of the wild horses, he fell off its back and broke his leg. Everyone thought this very bad luck. Not the farmer, whose only reaction was, “Bad luck? Good luck? Who knows?” Some weeks later the army marched into the village and conscripted every able-bodied youth they found there. When they saw the farmer’s son with his broken leg they let him off. Now was that good luck? Bad luck? Who knows?
In this story the Chinese farmer could have labeled the horse escaping or his son breaking his leg as problems. Instead he kept his mind off of labeling, and just accepted what had happened as a possible blessing. This story clearly illustrates how nothing is actually a problem. Everything the farmer experienced was perfect in its own way, and indeed did bless his life. The farmer just remained open to discovering what the Universe was blessing him with next. You are always being blessed by the Universe, even if you don’t know it. There is a divine plan that is so much vaster than we could ever know or fully comprehend.

When you live from a problematic mindset, you automatically lower your ability to manifest because all you are looking at is what isn’t working. Let’s say that you want to manifest a new car. Your old way of operating may have included thoughts like, “I want this car, but I have a problem. I don’t have the money to get one.” This is the typical problematic mindset in action. It jumps right to focusing on the problem which closes off your imagination, possibility thinking, and your manifesting vibration. This makes it pretty darn impossible to actually manifest that new car! The awesome news is that in a few minutes you can shift to a more empowering manifesting mindset. Be curious and look at how this current “blocked” financial situation could be a blessing in disguise. Perhaps this is exactly what your soul signed up for in order that you could prove to yourself and the world what a powerful manifestor you actually are.

The good news is that there are no problems in your life or anyone else’s life. There are only situations that arise that the mind labels as bad or undesirable. You’ve been hypnotized to believe that you have problems in your life to solve. In fact, the mind is obsessed and only sees problems everywhere. The moment something is not going our way, the mind decides that THIS is a problem and MUST be solved. The truth is that “problems” don’t really exist. There is just a way of seeing the world which had been programmed into us from a very tender age. What in fact may be a problem often turns out to be a mysterious blessing in disguise! The truth is that everything is perfect as it is. If we can just see the bigger picture, a more Universal, soul-based perspective on our life, our planet and reality, then it all makes perfect sense. We just can’t always see the perfection of a given situation because of this limited, narrow focused ego mind. All you get to do is open up and relax so that you can receive the abundance that is already present in your life, and in the Universe.

This week, when something happens to you that your mind labels as a “problem, stop yourself from going down that old beaten path of trying to fix the problem. Instead, acknowledge that what has happened is perfect in some mysterious way because it has happened. Imagine that it is a divine blessing trying to teach you to “see” your own ego controller mechanism. Then thank the Universe for the experience and consciously open up to the Universe. Say to yourself, “Wow, this has happened and now I can’t wait to find out the mysterious blessing behind it!” Before long, your mind will start to see every potential problem as a future blessing everywhere you go. Then, there will come a day when magically you will NEVER see a problem again. All of your problems will have truly disappeared. You will see that all along the entire Universe was with you, by your side, assisting and conspiring with you to manifest what you heart truly desires.
