Focus:The first step toward inner and outer peace is accepting responsibility for my life.Most of us spend the bulk of our time feeling crappy about one thing or another. We find ourselves in disagreements with others, feeling indignant, wounded, or angry. We feel that our lot in life is quite different from the path that we would like to be on.
All this comes into play every time we find ourselves at odds with others, and we feel righteous about our own anger. However, very rarely do we take the time to really think about any of these feelings, contenting ourselves with the miserable state we’re in by denying that there are any other choices in life.
The simple fact of the matter is that everything in our lives — including all the crappy things — is a choice that we have made for ourselves. That is a difficult fact to face for most of us, since it’s much easier to blame random circumstances in our lives than to accept responsibility for our own actions. The first step toward inner and outer peace is accepting responsibility for our lives.
