This was brought to My attention the other day. And it just dawned on Me as True right now! If We all were Responsible for every thing We did, then there would Be no requirement for government, police, military… You get the picture.
This concept is Easy to grasp, when You realize most problems/issues stem from lack of Responsibility.
For example, when You point blame on some one, or some thing You Chose to Do. Really Think about that, You Have a Choice in every thing You Do, say, and Think. No one forces You to Do, say, and Think any thing. You are in control, but then You will Think of a million scenarios to contradict those statements. Those are excuses, and those excuses stem from the avoidance of Responsibility.
Now You know why We Have government, We lack Responsibility, To Self-Govern is a Choice many of Us avoid. You may say “What about the People that Choose to cause chaos?”, well I can almost guarantee they were possibly raised to be very dependent on others to Do things for them, and point blame. I Am not blaming any Parents for raising their Children to Be non-Responsible(To Be Honest You Can not Teach that, You need to Discover it Your Self), because they were raised that way as well, and so on… I was that way too in the past, always blaming stuff outside of Me for any thing that went on in My Life. But for a while now, I have Chosen to Be fully Responsible for all of My actions, speaking, and Thoughts. And I can tell You with Confidence that My Life is much Better for Doing so. At first it took some time getting use to the whole concept, but after I made it a habit, and routine, it is common place with Me.
It’s funny, I scraped My truck bumper on the pillar in Our parkade on Thanksgiving day, I was bummed out about it at first, but I did not blame any thing or any one else for My mishap. I Thought about the whole incident in My Mind, and how I could Have blamed the Person who parks beside Me for possibly parking too close to My stall, causing Me to turn wider than usual, or I could have blamed the pillar for being in a stupid spot! There are a million excuses I could Think of, but what Good does it Do. It still happened, and I was the one Responsible for it.Truly, if I had not been out operating My truck, then it would have never happened. Making Me fully Responsible for the incident. I Am completely fine with it.
It is Calming to realize that You are in control of Your Experiences. When You start Being Responsible for every thing in Your Life, then You are Truly Free!
I have under stood this for some time now, I Am choosing to share what I know. There are two sides to ‘Higher Powers’, 1) Invisible Source of Energy 2) People of assumptive importance
Lets start with the first one ‘Invisible Source of Energy’. We all know there are things out there that We can and can not see as energy, take electricity for instance, We all know it exists, but can not physically see it! This goes for a lot of things. But I wish not elaborate on those, for there are too many things to write about here.
Second, ‘People of assumptive importance’. This is simple really. What do some consider “important”? Some one with lots of money? Some one with lots of education? Some one who has many followers?… I agree to the last statement, but only in the context of how it ‘debilitates’ You as a free thinker. What I mean is why do they supposedly have power? Because You “Believe they do!”. Once You stop focusing on what does not empower You, then You realize the importance of who You are truly! I do not mean that in a egotistical context, but more a inward acknowledgment of pure Self. This can be implemented into all aspects of Your existence.
I stopped reading the news papers, watching tv, looking at fear mongering websites… You get the picture. Some will say “Matt, but what You are doing is embracing ignorance!”. I dis-agree with that whole heartedly! I know the problems of the World. I agree, I do not know specifically all the problems of the World, and I agree that one does not require to, in order to under standÂ¬â€ that if We stopped making every problem a personal issue, then the collective issues made from the personal issue will seize to exist entirely! And that is what it is all about, taking full responsibility for all that goes on in Your experience. Guilt is based on this fully. To plead “not-guilty” is to plead “not-responsible”. Guilt is not a bad word, as is a lot of words We assume have negative connotations wrapped around them.
Complexity is a man-made thing, I believe every thing is simple. We tend to label this and label that, classify this and classify that, but when You get down to it all, every thing simply just is as it is. No fancy explanations. How do You think nature thrives as it does, I can tell You with certaintyÂ¬â€ it is simple and does not have a ego to get in the way of what it does best. Nature is connected to a infinite source, as is every thing else, As Human Beings We have dis-connected Our Selves from nature, and source. It is unfortunate, because I believe nature knows best, look at how no matter what has happened over the many millions of years on this planet, it has still managed to survive with out technology, knowledge, ego, nuclear bombs… I trust nature, it will always know best. Just observe it, and You will see what I mean.
Assuming is one thing I have learned recently, that it does not serve well in any regards. It is always best to ask questions to change that assumption into a fact, and that can be some what dangerous as well for facts are perceived differently from person to person. So use that advice with caution. Assuming is a difficult habit to break, but like all habits if You persist at changing them for the better, it will soon become common place just like the habit You replaced. ‘They’ say it takes “30 days to change a habit”, but I believe with more advanced methods, You can achieve faster results.
So to conclude, if You focus Your energy on those You assume are powerful, then You are correct in thinking they are powerful! But only to You. To assume they are powerful to others, is false in so many ways as explained above. Focus on what serves You well, remembering not to harm any one and any thing else in the process!
A major stepping stone that aided Me towards where I Am today is attributed from the Zeitgeist films, and movement! I do recommend watching the films presented by Peter Joseph, they are free to download and view online via http://www.zeitgeistmovie.com
Another method of releasing pent up emotions and beliefs is through a process called EFT(Emotional Freedom Technique). In short it is a process by which You tap certain Acupressure points on Your body while saying certain scripts to release what it is You are having trouble with or desire to affirm to Your Self more positively! Below is a link to a person who is well know in inspiring people through this process.
