Einstein once said, “No problem can be solved from the same consciousness that created it.”
In other words, we cannot fix our lives with our current state of mind. It means that if we want to make any meaningful changes to our lives, then we won’t find it in our current frame of mind.
It means that we want to change, we need to raise our consciousness.
We need to release old ideas that maybe have served us up until this point, but now must be let go to make room for new ones.
We need to observe our thoughts and feelings. We need to watch for patterns of behaviour so that they can be either be discarded or streamlined into a new, hopeful vision.
We have to learn new ideas, perhaps about how the world works, maybe about our inner selves.
We have to see the world differently. We need a new perspective. The way that we’ve always understood things has brought us right to this point. If we don’t like where we are, then we need to take a different road.
We need to see ourselves differently. To move from a place of fear to a place of hope, from being a victim of life to being the creator of our world, from feeling stuck to having choice, from being asleep to living with full awareness.
It is about growing ourselves, not changing the world.
A child who can only crawl believes that the world is made up of everything that he can see and reach on the floor. At some point, he will get frustrated and bored with what’s available. He can sit and scream and complain, or he can attempt to stand and start to learn to walk which will open up a whole new world of possibilities. But the world didn’t change. He just stood up and everything changed.
