Answers are often obvious. The difficulty may be in asking the right question. It is not a case of thinking out of the box but rather the realization that there never was a box anyway. Albert Einstein once commented that you cannot solve a problems from within the same mentality that created it. Shantideva clarified:
If there is a problem and a solution there is no need to worry.
If there is a problem and no solution there is no point in worrying.
Regarding a situation as a problem is just a certain state of mind, reflecting desire for reality different from what it is. But it never is. What happens happens. Nothing else ever happens.
Is there a possibility of your perceiving reality different from what you want, without necessarily construing this as a problem, but merely appreciating that:
You think what you think.
You do what you do.
What happens happens.
When the inevitable gaps occur from time to time between what you want and what is happening:
If you can fix it you probably will
Otherwise you will not.
But the deep appreciation that is just the nature of things, that nothing is necessarily broken, can bring great peace and the happiness that naturally flows from the absence of anything to disturb you.
