When you are experiencing challenges ask yourself:
- Who is the experiencer of these challenges?
- Why is this experiencer experiencing these events as challenges?
- How did the experiencer come to a conclusion that these events are challenges?
- Is this experiencer perceiving these events from a place of fear or faith?
- And most importantly, ask, does the experiencer really have to experience these events at all?
- What can happen if this experiencer retracts their attention from what they perceive as challenges and instead focus on something more pleasant?
As you dwell on the answers of these questions you start discovering that what you perceive as challenges are simply events that need your attention to resolve or ignore—especially if you can’t do anything about them. From these mental and emotional states, you free yourself from the discomforting consequences of your perception.
