In my profession as a CA, I have always believed in the concept of being a solution provider. Clients will not approach you if they don’t have problems – so instead of giving long winded solutions, cut to the chase and provide a viable and workable solution. That helps.
So, how does this apply to people who choose to walk on the spiritual path? You may well ask this!! It is all the more relevant, because once you start meditating regularly you will find that solutions start presenting themselves. Perceived problems are no longer problems, or their impact is reduced to such an extent that you do not see them as problems any longer!
As we go through life we start maturing and with increasing maturity comes greater understanding and patience, this generally helps us in coping with life’s challenges. In India, we have a support system in the family and its values based on our ancient heritage, but that has reduced dramatically in modern times. Nuclear families have more or less eroded the support system. So, in such a scenario how do we cope? Because cope we have to! Our life is our own to live, we have to find our own solutions which facilitate smooth and harmonious living. If we can find peace in our own lives then we are in a much better position to provide solutions to others.
With increased depth in meditation, the more time you spend within, the greater the understanding of energy and the way it works, in fact the positive energy around you itself starts providing solutions to you or through you to those who present their problems to you. If anyone approaches you with their problems listen patiently, and provide the advice spontaneously without thinking too much – if you do that then understand that it is your soul which is providing the solution. This solution will invariably strike a chord with the person facing you and in time you will most likely receive the feedback that their problem has been resolved!
When you meet a person with compassion and an innate aura of love energy, the person opposite invariably ends up sharing very personal problems and unknowing to that soul, he/she expects you to provide the solution. Your heart will tell you the answer and you will just give it naturally and spontaneously. This is your Guru giving the solution through you as a medium – always remember that you are the medium, else you will open a window for the ego to step in. Be a solution provider while remaining alert and aware of all circumstances.
