And my fourth book... my fourth book. It is a simple one. It is not very long, it is an easy read and I would like to talk about it today. It is a simple title, “You Don’t Have Problems, You’re Just Bored.” (some laughter, then applause.) And dare I say another word about it because the title is so explanatory.
You know what happens. Humans tend to get caught up in the whole syndrome of problems, it is addictive energy. It is addictive energy. They actually like having problems. You know how to turn a room full of humans silent instantly? Tell them they can’t speak about problems! (laughter) This is what humans do - they talk about problems. They go over problem after problem after problem and when the problems just naturally tend to disappear, they create new problems - because they’re bored!! (laughter)
The mind has been so programmed to work on problems to keep it occupied. It is an artificial version of being creative. The mind takes a problem and starts hashing over it, looking at it from a very analytical standpoint, viewing it from every different side, analyzing all of the different potentials, analyzing all of the probable outcomes. But then the mind also continues, in these outcomes, to interject new problems that may occur along the way to reaching the solution. So the problems continue over and over again, perpetuating themselves. It is an addictive energy.
Shaumbra, what problems do you have? None. You just think you have problems because your mind has to keep busy. You have to keep it occupied, and you know, problems are a fun game for the mind. Your mind is designed to work on things, to assess things. The mind is designed to keep busy all the time, so it will devour problems. It will chew on them over and over again just like a dog chews on a bone, never wanting to let them go.
But the real situation, the real problem is - the true problem is - you don’t have solutions. You have problems but no solutions, because solutions are no fun. They’re the end of the line. It means the mind has to stop churning and working so hard. It doesn’t have any games to feed it, so it will naturally continue to perpetuate a problem for the sake of itself. It doesn’t want to be bored, doesn’t want to be cast off into nothingness, so it will continue problem after problem after problem. It is a vicious cycle, it is a very tiring cycle, and it is a cycle that we can end - you can end.
