On comfort and discomfort

Both want to avoid what they need.

  • Ask yourself for the source — why is this problem befalling me?
    You must have an honest dialogue with yourself. You can do this best by writing. Do this over and over again, if the problem sits deep.
  • Ask your best friend for help — can you please help me with a moment of relaxation / with a challenging project?
    If your friends are good friends they will have been trying to get you to do this anyway and they will gladly give you a hand.
  • Ask the world / the universe / God for guidance — can you please show me the way?
    Maybe you can find guidance in some reading or listening material — there is plenty to go around.
