Problem solving

“You cannot solve a problem from the same level of consciousness that created it.” ~Albert Einstein~
While I thought I was leaving a friend some words of wisdom and support on her blog, I read this quote. As it turns out, she was giving me words of wisdom. Ever since then, any time I have approached a situation in my life that has caused me any vexation at all, I have stopped and realized that I need to transcend whatever consciousness I was(am?) when I first entered the relationship with that situation before I can resolve it, and bing! suddenly I am in this balanced place . . . a place of sort of starting over, but with a whole lot more insight about myself.

In trying to keep things the same, we create stagnation and recreate the problem over and over and over. Transcendence requires change and when we change, we can see more, live more, and understand more.

    Barbara – another wonderful post!

    As I go poking around your new and beautiful blog another thought has occurred to me … because you are a writer, you may want to consider putting a copyright at the bottom of each post.

    Here is one thing I want to know…Why do I have to go back and forth to my e-mail to see if there is a new comment/message?…Am I losing something here….Where can I see if there is a pop up or something in wordpress….or am I just being crazy….

    In WordPress, click on “Dashboard” — you should be able to click on comments there. You’ll see “Aproved” “Pending” “Spam” etc. If a person is a WordPress blog person, it appears that their comments are already approved. If not, you will first have to approve, and then reply.

    If you’re in WordPress for a long time, every now and then go up to the green up/down (refresh) arrows at the top of your computer screen. You may have received new things that you’re unaware of.
