The solution

I woke up this morning with the answer to all life's problems running through my head:
A life of charity, fed by prayer and fasting.
The charity in question is the full concentration, greatest of the three things that endures, infused theological virtue: God's own love acting through you. A life of charity is one best described by the constant stream of acts of charity performed. Prayer draws one toward God; fasting pushes away what is not God.

Worth noting is that this solution is a solvent, not a magic potion. You apply it to your problem, and it works on it, but there's no guarantee of an instant clean-up.
