Over time, the phrase ‘I’m responsible for my actions’ has guided me as I move through the world. Getting to grips with what I’ve understood it to mean, I’ve tried to take action in a responsible way.
But, I think I misunderstood what I now believe to be true. Of course, what’s true for me may not be true for you. I thought I’d share my thoughts on what’s true for me.
I believe ‘I’m responsible for my actions’ is a guide to living the best life possible. It’s not complex. In fact, it’s dead simple. You, me and everyone else out there is responsible for their own actions.
When you know everything you experience is always about you, and not about who else appears to be involved, life opens up in magical ways because you’ll be taking action from a different place.
A place within you that is the source of everything that you are.
Everything we experience, everything/everyone that brings out the judgemental elements of our character, who gets our back up, or makes us angry is all about our feelings, our thoughts and our reactions.
It has nothing to do with the other person/people on the scene. Doesn’t matter how much of the brown stuff they’re throwing our way.
I can see how it may appear to seem that way. Sorry, but they’re living out their own experiences, and by coincidence, you’re a player in their dramas, showing them what’s going on inside of them.
Every day new dramas show up to be played out in any way we see fit. They show up to help us grow our inner well-being. To enable us to touch base with our innate inner wisdom.
The outer shell of us is where all the action takes place.
