Bring In The Light
Don't look for solutions to problems in meditation. Rest in that state beyond problems, where only divine harmony exists. Divine guidance will emerge from that consciousness. Bring light into a dark room, and the darkness vanishes as though it had never been.
~Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian
Meditation is not a time to work out issues. Our time of meditation is a time to move deeper than the level of thought. Important problems cannot be solved on the same level of consciousness as the problem because a focus on the negative just attracts energy which enlarges the problem. We can let go of issues and just sink into the inner peacefulness of real meditation. Then later on we will be happily surprised by the ease with which marvelous solutions appear.
