How does taking full, complete responsibility for your every thought, feeling, choice, action, and reaction change your life?
When you blame others or outside circumstances, you give up your ability to make change. You see yourself as a victim and feel helpless.
When you stop blaming others and outside circumstances, and when you take full, complete responsibility for your thoughts, feelings, choices, actions, and reactions, you have the power to make change and create what you want in your life. You learn from your experiences. The more you learn, the more internal resources you have for moving forward in your life.
You reclaim the power you have given over to others and return it to yourself.
Taking full responsibility for yourself is to understand a basic life principle.
Karma is EVERY “action” or “deed” which causes the cycle of cause and effect.
Karma is not punishment but rather a consequence of natural acts.
Karma is not fate. You have free will to create your destiny (the power of taking full responsibility!). Every choice today makes something happen today and tomorrow. Choose “intelligent action”.
Karma helps you learn and then make better choices.
We talk about “what goes around comes around” and “reap what you sow”. This is a universal principle.
Sakyong Mipham said, “Like gravity, karma is so basic we often don’t even notice it.”
CJ Jung said, “When an inner situations is not made conscious, it appears outside as fate.”
When you appreciate the simple, powerful truth of karma, you can then experience the freedom of change.
“Intelligent action” happens when you ask excellent questions such as:
- “What then?”
- “For what purpose?”
- “Is this what I really want?”
- “Who is impacted by this choice?”
- “Will this result in my highest and best?”
