116. Today’s Problem May Sometime Be Yesterdays Solution!!!!!!

We humans are not always correct in dealing with our problems. Our approach will either be a little bit flexible or sometime robust in regards to getting a solution. We always think that a solution for the time being is sufficient. Very few of us think of a solution which is eternal. The search for eternal solution may be tedious, but is worth giving a try. There is no problem without a solution. The majority of problems we encounter can never be resolved at the same plane of thinking that we had when the problem appeared. Hence the way of our thinking has to change first; it is advised to think out of the box for a solution at that time. As we are acquainted with fresh information that is available or that conditions change, even our best chosen solution has to be reverted and sometimes overlooked. In haste to find solution, we often resolve the problem today which may cause a new problem tomorrow. The difference between a problem and a solution should be that we have to be able to understand the solution. It is seen that sometimes the solution in turn does affect something else. Everything we perform is a cause and effect situation, and today's problems are purely the outcome of attempting to fix or reduce earlier problems. Once it so happened that there was a fight between a horse and a stag. The stag caused injury to the horse with its antlers. The horse wounded and hurt thought of taking revenge and went away. The next day it came across a hunter and it appealed to the hunter to help him take revenge. The hunter said “Yes, I can help you. I am armed with arrows. But I cannot run as fast as the stag so take me on your back and I will kill the stag your enemy”. The hunter rode on the horse’s back and went into the forest and killed the snag. The horse was very happy and thanked the hunter and said, “I thank you for helping me take revenge. Now I will take leave from you”. The hunter came up and said “Ah horse, where do you think you will go? I have come to know how useful you are to hunt. Will I let you go and be foolish??. You have to take me on your back daily into the forest so that I can hunt; you have to be my companion.” The horse was no doubt saved from the nuisance of a stag, but he had to loose its freedom. Same is with us in haste to resolve the problem we do not solve it but create more. Changing outside factors for our internal problem often can become creation of new problem. The horse could have left the stag alone but took the help of wicked hunter. It is knowledgeable to study the problem before finding solutions to it and find a weak spot and break the problem, and the rest will be easy. The problem is not that there are problems. The problem is expecting otherwise and thinking that having problems is a problem. Solve it. Solve it correctly. If you solve it wrong, it will come back and slap you in the face. “Intellectuals solve problems; Geniuses prevent them.” - Albert Einstein
