Turning Problems Into Possibilities by Alan Tutt http://www.KeysToPower.com
Many times, a problem is an indication that there is something we must learn. Other times, a problem is simply an outworking of a previous use of Power that was directed through a negative channel. In Keys To Power, there are a couple of things we can do depending on which situation we are faced with.
Most of us are content to keep things way they are until there is a problem. This is fine, and there is no reason to change this (unless it becomes a problem, that is). When we are faced with a problem, one of things we must consider is whether problem is result of way we've been doing things. If it is result of our pattern of action or inaction, then we must change our patterns if we wish to avoid having same problem in future. If problem is not a direct result of what we've been doing (or not doing), then all we have to do is deal with issue at hand and be done with it. This is how most of us are used to dealing with problems.
In Keys To Power system, we recognize that everything that we experience is a direct result of our pattern of action or inaction. There is absolutely nothing that we can say was purely chance or fault of someone other than ourselves. Yes, we are directly responsible if there is an earthquake that destroys our house, and we are also responsible for idiot on road that cuts us off and causes us to run off road.
While this may seem harsh and unforgiving at first, it becomes extremely liberating once you learn about Power that you control and direct. If you are alive, then Universal Power of Life flows through you. This Power picks up essence of your thoughts and feelings and proceeds out into your world to create experiences based on those thoughts and feelings. And once you learn to control your thoughts and feelings, you are able to control what that Power creates in your world.
Let me describe how problems get created. Something happens that you are not happy with. Let's say that your boss promotes someone else into a position that you wanted. Most people will react to this with a feeling of frustration, and some thoughts will be entertained that suggests that other people get things we ourselves should be getting. Even though this is a reaction to something that has already happened, thoughts and feelings still direct Power to create future events. Power picks up feeling of frustration and thoughts of unfairness and goes out into world to create an experience.
The amount of Power working to create this experience will depend on how strong thoughts and feelings were that were entertained, and how long they were focused upon. If there was not much energy put into them, then there will be very little Power to create a similar experience. If these things were dwelt upon for days and weeks with a severe intensity, then there will be a huge amount of Power looking to create a catastrophy. (Don't imagine this too vividly. You don't want to create this for yourself.) With only a little Power directed towards frustration, only little experiences will reflect this feeling. With a great deal of Power directed towards unfairness, a person could end up being sued in court with false evidence!
But here's reason that this relationship is not as clear as it should be: every day you focus on so many different things, some good and others not so good. Power is directed in many different directions to create a wide variety of experiences. And in turn, this wide variety of experiences will incite an equally wide variety of thoughts and feelings, which in turn direct Power to create an equally wide variety of experiences. A complete circle of cause and effect. Imagine what life would be like if you only thought and felt positive things! Power would only create good things for you, which will incite only positive thoughts and feelings, which will only create good things, and on and on along positive channels.
