Consider: can we alter our state of mind to achieve our desire, and how do we reprogram our mind into a state more conducive to accomplishing what we want in our life?

The first and most accessible solutions to anything and everything is smile and take a deep breath. Smile and Breathe and the solution presents itself.

Research has shown that smiling:

  • Uplifts mood
  • Improves immune system
  • Burns calories
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Releases endorphins and serotonin, which are natural pain helpers and feel good hormones
  • Relieves stress, reducing cortisol, a stress hormone
  • Brings more love into your heart and your life
  • Helps you live longer
  • Brings forth compassion
  • Tells your consciousness that "Life is Good"
  • Opens you up to new opportunities
  • Even when you force a smile it helps you stay positive

Research has shown that Deep, Conscious Breathing

  • Relaxes you
  • Clears and focuses mind
  • Puts you in the present moment
  • Boosts metabolism
  • Strengthens abdominal muscles
  • Releases endorphins
  • Detoxifies body by pumping Lymphatic system
  • Brings in more oxygen
  • Brings in more Prana, Chi, or Life Force Energy

This is amazing stuff, and smiling and breathing are simple, effective. Start right now.

Become a conscious smiler and breather. Smile and breathe, smile and breathe throughout your whole day and experience the difference.

Thanks for the reminder! I once read that a local medicine man in Bali advised a pupil to meditate in this was. He said smile with every part of your body and breathe. Even smile with your liver :)

@ Brian: Wonderful and I totally agree we really need to be a conscious smiler, and breather. Thank you.

Yes, we often look for the complicated solutions when the simple ones are what we really need. Thank you :)

IMO it is to Know Thyself. Accept who you truly are. Accept the good bad and the super uncomfortably worst person you are at times. Do not deny what you REALLY are. Do not live a life for others, or under others expectations. Blaze your own trail. Take however long it takes to UNDERSTAND yourself.

To me that is the key

I'll let you know how it works out someday. No wait, I'll be dead then :))

Take however long it takes to UNDERSTAND yourself: very significant, and meaningful. Thank you.

Here is a quote from the Telementation book I have spoken about before, from the chapter called Restructuring "Autopilot" Consciousness

To give you a hint, the way to do this is to have frequent successful meditation sessions, even only for two or five minutes or so, at various times throughout the day, where you focus on the targets in reality that you want to manifest.

When I learned to do this, frequently, and with this specific and repeatable right feeling-state in me, "autopilot consciousness" rather quickly transformed into the contents of the focused telementation session.

In other words, doing very focused, short but frequent meditation sessions in pockets of time throughout the day, radically changed my entire mind permanently: if my frequent focusing sessions continually involved much optimism about my life, then shortly after my moment-to-moment autopilot consiousness would start to be imbued with optimism also.

The meditation sessions that I directed flooded my consciousness, and soon my consciousness was transformed into the content, optimism, and joy of the meditation session.

What this basically means is, say if you were to have a meditation session where you focus on a particular thing you want, and everything goes great, but then after the meditation sesion you start thinking things like "oh, it will never happen to me," "I don't deserve it," "i'm not sure if this really works," then that is what your subconcious accepts as true. By returning to these thoughts, you basically cancel out your previous successful meditation sesions.

But if you have frequent short sessions throughout the day, 10 - 15 minutes, 2 - 5 times a day, then your are restructuring you autopilot consciousness and the thoughts and feelings you had in your meditation sessions are now carried forward into your normal moment-to-moment consciousness. You no longer have doubts about your target manifesting.

All great answers above. The only thing I will add that Overman mentioned is acceptance. One thing we are always guaranteed in life is change, and it is often to what degree we accept this change and go with the flow, or resist this change and become stuck, that determines whether we move through the solutions or become stuck in the problems.

The easiest way to become more accepting is to open your mind and adopt a willingness to see what hasn't worked in your life that you've continued holding on to and are now ready to let go of, in the light of that new openmindedness - I think most of us here are doing just that :)


This was inspired by Michael's (Overman's) question on spiritual growth. Once again it brought to the forefront of my mind that, without a doubt,love is the premier solution. When we can infuse every action and every encounter with love, there won't be any problems that need solutions,merely challenges that are overcome when met with the light of love.

Yes, if not love, what else is the Premier Solution? Great point, thank you.

(23 Jan '11, 06:45) Inactive User ♦♦

The premier solution probably wont remove all of lifes problems.

But i would say the knowledge of exactly who we are is the one premier solution.

Realization of our oneness with all that there is must be the most powerful concept,fact,religion and solution.

What could be more powerfull than oneness with deity.

Very well said, and it is important that this information is shared, thank you!

There can't be one solution to all of life's problems but for me holding on to this core belief gives me great strength to overcome all my problems - 'whatever has happened was for the best, whatever is happening is for the best and whatever will happen in the future will also be for the best'.

I Think Therefore I Am

It seems to me that you’ve asked three questions here. I’ll answer the first one and maybe answers to the other two questions will become apparent.

What is the Premier Solution to all of life’s major problems?

As simple as it may sound the answer is belief. Your very question implies that you believe there are major problems (I’m not saying there aren’t) and furthermore (I’m assuming), you believe in the possibility that there may be a premier solution.

And here I am saying that understanding that nothing happens without belief is the only thing needed to eliminate problems entirely. Whether or not you decide that now is the time for you to remember this is your choice, but the fact that you asked the question is probably a clue for you to look at the idea of belief and get to the root of it.

Remember that a belief is how we define something: we think about it and mull it over and then it becomes our belief. In other words we buy into it; and once that happens, our experience of reality changes to reflect our beliefs.

Even when we decide we want to experience something different: so we imagine our future and feel good about it, but if we don’t truly believe it can or will happen; it can’t happen!

Belief is the underlying factor that causes movement. Think about it, belief is thought and thought is movement. So thought is the primary factor which causes movement, which is change. And all of life
is change.

Excellent answer, thank you! A Belief can sometimes be our best friend or our best enemy all at the same time.

(25 Jan '11, 06:06) Inactive User ♦♦

You are correct. We are a program. And a program is made up of a set of instructions. Change the instructions, you change the program. The problem then arises when our egos claim those instructions as "This is me", and becomes a set of beliefs. Altering "Me", is very difficult. Know that you are what you think you are and that you are limitless.
