Oh yes it is you who are responsible for everything happening anywhere in the world. You are responsible for what president Trump said and did, you are responsible for the earthquake and the hurricanes and the floods, and the riots and the bombings … you are responsible for everything!! You are responsible for the job that you lost, you responsible for the lover who cheated you. You are responsible for your mother’s sickness and your father’s death. You are also responsible for the love and the beauty and the joy everywhere in the world. You are responsible for the sunrise and the sunset, for the clouds and the breeze….
Your life, my dear is your RESPONSIBILITY!! 💯 percent. And unless and until you learn and practice this – your pain and suffering isn’t going to go. You aren’t going to lead a fulfilling life –However good it may look to the outside world and however much you may fool yourself.
But before we talk more about Responsibility we need to understand ACCEPTANCE
Today is a given. Fighting today is insanity. Whatever your are today : your health, wealth, relationships, looks….. IS – what it is. Accept it. It could have been different – yes. But it is not and that is a fact. It is futile to waste your time and energy blaming anyone, including yourself.
Any problem you have with life : Look at it and Acknowledge it…. whatever is happening in your life today Accept it. Be aware of it…
And then take RESPONSIBILITY– 💯 percent. Responsibility is Your Ability to Respond. What do you do!! The point my dear is that you have no control over most of the things that happen to you and around you. More than 90% things that happen to you aren’t in your control. But the quality of your life today and your future depends on – How you Respond to those external stimuli. Normally we REACT with a conditioned mind; with our past perspective and impressions. What we need to do is RESPOND!! And that can happen only and only if you stop yourself from reacting. Even if you give the smallest of pauses before you react, you will be able to respond. President Trump said it : how do you respond. PM Modi or May or Justine did this or that : how do you respond. An earthquake in Nepal : how do you respond ……
The moment you start doing it your life will start to bloom. All the energy that would have been lost in the blame game, being a victim; will be channelled to the solution of the challenges you are facing. You will be at peace with yourself and the world.
As I wrote in my post Time heals nothing …. Past and Future are mind constructs. Never real. And living in them we make our present, which is real, miserable. By learning to Respond and not React you will start to live more in the Now. And that is Amazingly freeing.
You have an amazing life ahead for you.
Live in the Now
Shine your light
I love you and am so proud of you ❤️🤗
