existence is not a problem to be solved...

Existence is not a problem to be solved, it is a mystery to be lived. 
And you should be perfectly aware what the difference is between a mystery and a problem. 
A problem is something created by the mind; 
a mystery is something which is there, not created by the mind. 
A problem has an ugliness in it, like disease. A mystery is beautiful. 
With a problem, immediately a fight arises. 
You have to solve it; something is wrong, you have to put it right; 
something is missing, you have to supply the missing link. 
With a mystery there is no question like that. The moon arises in the night.... 
It is not a problem, it is a mystery. You have to live with it. 
You have to dance with it. You have to sing with it, or you can be just silent with it. 
Something mysterious surrounds you.

Be less of a judge and you will be surprised that when you become a witness 
and you don't judge yourself, you stop judging others too. 
And that makes you more human, more compassionate, more understanding.
