An ‘issue’ is issued by the Soul to its Self.
The Self, as a master, will view the issue as an opportunity for growth.
The Self, as a student, will view the issue as a challenge issued by the master.
The Self, that is unawakened, will view the issue as a problem.
A problem is always viewed from a negative perspective.
A challenge is either viewed as positive or negative, depending on how much power is available to carry out the challenge.
With enough power, the issue is seen as a positive challenge that is achievable.
With insufficient power the challenge will be seen as too big a challenge to overcome.
An opportunity is always seen as a positive opportunity for development and growth,
Our perspective on Life will decide whether we are an awakening student or an aware master.
