“No one could solve all the problems the world appears to hold. They seem to be on so many levels, in such varying forms and with such varied content, that they confront you with an impossible situation. Dismay and depression are inevitable as you regard them. Some spring up unexpectedly, just as you think you have resolved the previous ones. Others remain unsolved under a cloud of denial, and rise to haunt you from time to time, only to be hidden again but still unsolved.”
The above quotation rings true to me, as I deal with two seemingly different problems. They seem utterly unrelated, but, as Jesus says in this lesson, they are not. The first is difficulty with getting enough sleep, which seems to be exacerbated by loud plumbing in the apartment building in which I live. The second one is with a program on my computer, which unexpectedly stopped working. Totally different issues? No, because they both result from my perception that everything is separate from everything and everyone else. As long as I think I’m here, in physical form, I need to address the problems individually, but, with the help of my inner Teacher, I can learn that what I am experiencing is simply different aspects of one problem. Does this understanding solve the problems? In form, maybe not, but in content, yes.
