Where am I?

Stop. 

Suspend the inner incessant monologue for a moment; see the absolution in disarming angst with gratitude; see the world beyond the box containing your problems. There is no honor in being metaphysically challenged. You can transcend your to do list. You are where your attention takes you.

What does this problem want to teach me? In the act of asking the question, you remove the psychic thorn that hooks you into the issue. Alleviating knee jerk pain then allows you to recast the problem as a lesson that benefits you.

Unfortunately, we learn more from pain than joy.
