TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY
TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY = DEATH OF THE EGO
My ego is how I identify with suffering and dying. When I start taking responsibility my ego slowly withdraws. My actions, decisions and power tend to serve life instead of reinforcing the walls around me.
Acknowledgment of my defense system, of how I create and participate in my own suffering is the key. It takes courage to look inside and see how I do it. In some people which are on a journey of personal development, the capacity to acknowledge their own responsibility in what overcomes them, tend to diminish. Instead of becoming clearer inside they seem to become smarter in fooling themselves.
Only when we have the honesty to see our own responsibility transformation becomes possible. Then we develop a healthier state of mind and emotions and act with more focus and less judgment.
