I had a very ingrained pattern that was really dragging me down and I had no idea that I was the cause of it. For much of my life, when I was unhappy, I looked for someone else to blame. I never wanted to take the blame myself, so I always looked for someone else to put it on.
If someone had a criticism of me, I would immediately see if I could diver the attention to someone else and what they did that was worse. If I could blame them for my problem, I would.
From where I was looking at things, from my skewed point of view, I thought that my RELIEF from suffering came from blaming someone else. I might have a problem, but at least I wasn’t the cause of it.
I thought this way, EVEN THOUGH, I thought I understood the Law of Cause & Effect. How crazy is that?
It’s hard to believe that taking responsibility is actually the way OUT of suffering. I’m so glad that I finally figured that out.
Since all is one, and this life is an illusion, how could I ever think that blaming someone would ever be helpful?
Taking responsibility is a relief.
I can’t control things, but I can take responsibility, which puts me into the place of learning. It takes me out of identification with the ego and into alignment with the Creator/Spirit/God.
This is healing! This is spiritual maturity! This is the opening door!
