Responsibility sounds daunting, difficult, and ominous, doesn't it? Well I am here to let you know that it is not true. Responsibility is LIBERATING! It gives freedom and happiness. When we come to a place where we can see how our responsibility for our actions, life, love affairs, business, money, and peace we become free to choose to pick how our influence affects these things. In our lives we can choose to be in pain. We can choose lack and hate, We can perpetuate these things so quickly and constantly that we become disillusioned into believing that it is not our doing. I know that many times in my life I would say to myself "WHY ME?", "Why does this always happen to me?", and you can bet your bottom dollar that during those times I would look upon someone's good fortune and think ( or even say ) "Why do they always get the good stuff?" " I never win anything." "Why can't I get a break like that?". I know that during these times I would envy, and hate, and be jealous of someone's good life. So along with these feelings and talk I continued to attract more and more of the unwanted into my life. I focused so hard upon the lack of things I wanted that I manifested more and more misfortune into my existence. I was MISERABLE. For a period of years while I lived in Maine, I am pretty darn sure I cried every night. I felt such an emptiness, such a heart break, that I was besides my self. That was not the only time...anyone that knows me from high school, can attest that I lived in this kind of emotional state. I was a sponge, a chameleon, I never really had a strong sense of self. I blended in to whom ever or what ever I was surrounding myself with. I could get along with anyone. I was never able to really be me, I was afraid because I played out my future based on past experiences; past experiences I created myself. Sad lot I was, INDEED. It has never been a mystery to me, this Law of Attraction, I was always keenly aware of it. I just choose to blame everyone else and anything else than to take responsibility and manifest a better life for myself. Well, sometimes a person just gets sick and tired of being sick and tired, and that is true for me. I no longer cling to my crutches. I no longer blame my Pop's or my Mom, or my high school sweet heart, or anyone. You see, I created every single relationship and it's outcomes all by myself. I was and still am the MASTER of MY universe. I still write the script, and with my amazing directing ability, I have lead the players to their roles.
There is this concept, I believe was coined by Freud ( funny enough because he did not believe in self direction, he was the master of the blame game ) called Catharsis. Catharsis is when we purge and purify negative emotions. If you haven't had one, may hap it is time, or may hap it is not. Well, anyway, I have had mine. I realize and accept all the good things about me. I have taken responsibility for me, the good and the bad. I do not manifest Bad in my life anymore, because I do not give it any focus. I keep myself in a state of Joy and Abundance. Things I would have called LUCKY or a Miracle in the past now Happen EVERYDAY FOR ME. When something goes wrong, it does not devastate me like it used to; instead I recognize my role in it's manifestation and 'do' something about it, and when all I can 'do' about it is let it be, than that is what I do. I spend a lot of time thinking about good things. When I see someone living a life I perceive to be wonderful, or driving a car I perceive to show abundance, or growing a garden I perceive to be bountiful, I give em a full blown thumbs up. When I see others doing amazing things or being amazing people, I get HAPPIER! I soak my self up in the JOY of it! I KNOW that every time someone see's and feels this awesomeness, it becomes easier for the next person to see and feel their own awesomeness. So my message today is, GET RESPONSIBLE, everything that happens is a direct result of the vibration you give off, with out fail. Remember that 'how someone treats you is their Karma, HOW YOU REACT IS YOURS.' ( Dyer )
