With soap and water I wish to wash away the heavy muck on the word, responsibility. It deserves to be wiped clean of the burden it carries.
Whether you like it or not, you are responsible. Everything you think, . . . every thought goes out into infinite space with a vibrating tag leading right back to you. Every moment of every day you send messages, good, bad and in-between. That infinite space can’t discriminate between good, bad and in-between, so it is always saying yes to every thought you have.
The thing to do is to own it. Be responsible for every feeling you have. Do this by realizing what you already know. Be with yourself here and gently come to a place of knowing the goodness you have inside.
Now be gentle with yourself. I say this because responsibility is a benefit. Once you relax into living with this truth you realize your power over your life. And then you have a power no one can touch. It’s yours to keep. This is the clean definition of responsibility I spoke of earlier.
Remember, with responsibility you are in charge.
Change your thoughts and you change your reality. Not immediately, not overnight, but in due time the longer you visit your very fine thought(s). All negatives have an opposite positive, make that switch.
Native American culture believes that everything happens in just the right way at just the right time. That’s a lot like, “Be Here Now.” And there is real magic in the practice of being in the moment, with your focused thoughts and with a universe that is constantly saying Yes.
