In the Buddhist wisdom is mention that every problem that we face, we have set up by ourselves…
Maybe so we can’t blemish other for their wicked, awful or cruel behavior?
Our logical mind is protesting. Because we like to see us as a victim, that is overwhelmed by problems that other people have done to us.
We are responsible for everything that happens to us.
The Happiness research in London found out, so more we responsible feel for everything that happens to us so more happier we are.
The Anomyme Alcoholics are asking themselves: What has the situation to do with ourselves? Instead, to blemish other people to be responsible for our hurt feelings we look what is the cause? In a situation, you get upset another person doesn’t get upset about the same situation – there must be something wrong. Because of our upbringing, people react differently. We are responsible for our hurt feelings and we can’t blemish anybody else.
Normally we feel okay when everything is running good and when something is going bad we complain. Instead to feel grateful when everything is running well.
Our mind is a machine that continuously creates desires, and through these desires we experience problems.
If we buy some new equipment then a chain of new problems are coming. For instance, if you buy a washing machine you need to make the installation, you need room for the machine, washing powder, more electricity and the machine is noisy…
We learn through problems. Problems are not harmful if we are not seeking problems to become overloaded.
Our problems are unfulfilled desires.
We want something, and we can’t get it in our time frame; then we experience fear and anger that we can’t get it.
After the Srimad Bhagavatam, we want everything under our control, even our animals want that too. And so we suffer.
What is if we accept every undesired outcome as present from God to learn?
What is if we learn to accept what we can’t change… Our problem would be solved.
