11. Swami Chinmayananda

A "problem"  becomes a problem only when we know not the solution to the problem.

Thus ‘life’ is a problem when we know not how to meet the life’s challenges rising around us.

The stimuli coming from the external  "world",  as they touch the objective "mind", creates therein a problem, to solve which, it needs the guidance of the rational capacities of the "intellect" - the subjective mind.

When the individual is split within, his mental personality, divorced from the intellect, cannot easily come to any decision.

The egoistic self-evaluation and ego-created intense "anxieties" for the fruits of "action" stands, as it were, between the mind and intellect, separating them and creating between them an almost unbridgeable gulf.
