There is a great quote that brings me back to alignment every single time. It belongs to a fictional character but that does not diminish its truth.
Captain Jack Sparrow from the movie Pirates of the Caribbean says:
“The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem. Do you understand?”
This quote makes me laugh, lightens me up and has a quick re-balancing effect on me. It holds such deep truth and wisdom and it is delivered in such a light and fun way. This is a powerful emotional cleansing and re-balancing tool and the more you ponder on it, the better it will work. Try it! Emotional release does not have to be complicated. Keep reading Captain Jack Sparrow’s words and remind yourself of them often.
It is not the problem, the person, the event or the circumstance creating your discomfort, fear, pain or disappointment, but your attitude towards what is happening. It is that simple.
I love this quote and I remind myself of it whenever I start to feel that I have a… problem.
Do YOU have a problem?
