Why should we avoid identifying with the problem to solve it?
Answer from the V.M. Samael Aun Weor.
The time for us to learn to solve our problems has arrived. Many problems exist: economic, social, moral, political, religious, family-related, etc., and we should learn to solve them intelligently. The important thing to remember for the solution of every problem is to not become identified with the problem.
One has a certain tendency to become identified with the problem and the identification is so intense that, in fact, we become the very problem. The result of such an identification is that we fail in the solution because a problem can never solve another problem.
One needs much peace and mental calm to solve a problem. An uneasy, battling, confused mind cannot solve any problem. If you have a very serious problem, do not become identified with the problem, retreat to any healthy recreational place: a forest, or a park, or the home of a very close friend, etc.

Answer from the Magazine "The Wisdom of the Being".
To begin with, we need to understand that regardless of the seriousness of the problem we face, it is necessary not to identify with it, because we will end up becoming another problem itself.
Example: They tell us that we have been unemployed, and we are filled with fear, anger and concern, which causes our blood pressure to rise, affecting our health and capacity for response and action.
Then we have the problem of unemployment and now, in addition, the deterioration of our health.
