Responsibility. A great word to explore our relationship to. Do we feel responsible for others, there actions and/or level of wellbeing?
I never thought the responsibility I felt for the world around me and its capacity for happiness was actually keeping me from my own.
We can all place way too much expectation on ourselves in this soul journey. One way is by believing it is up to us to fix or heal someone and in result create a happiness for them.
Its especially common in those who are interested in the holistic arts. We start believing that because we hold certain knowledge and passions that it is up to us to utilize it anf save the worl wuth our healing knowledge. We birth the gyry complex. And… if we don’t follow the “plan” we may get a dock on our spiritual check lists.l and miss the trip home…
Since we all do truly want to help, the most whole-istic plan of action is to share. Sharing our knowledge. Sharing our unique passions with our fellow man. And sharing our goods, and happily if we build it ourselves. By simply passing along the materials that helped us along on our journey, we have the ability to possibly help another.
The catch is doing so without any expectation of gaining anything in return. A holistic arrangement. The give and receive happens naturally when the resistance of expectation is removed.
Now again is it our responsibility to share? No. It is our soul choice in this journey to do what we wish. We live in a free will based universe. It is a choice. And if we choose to share we have to do so with no expectation that they will use it or even be helped from it. What they do with the information/material is up to them. And after we pass it along we would then let it go to run its course.
Now I feel many spiritual people hold onto this belief: We may think we will not finish our job here on earth and get in trouble by the “big guys”. Almost like there’s a jurer judging us and penalizing us. Growing up in the police state world I can see why we reflect this into out relations. Or we may even feel if we don’t do our spiritual work we will not get through the “gates” so to speak. Filtering through these limiting feelings, I can finslly tell they are simply fearful primal thoughta, and then, they must not be the one true constant. Love Eternal
This is dogmatic conditioning. Patterns of the fear driven thoughts about spirtuality passed on from our ancestors. These thoughts are tied to old religious beliefs, methods of government and the culture of the times. Its so powerful and lasting.
If you dare to dive alittle furthur… it started with our false separation from source. It causes us to feed on the outside world to fill our void of seperate love. Like it isn’t in all things. We see it as coming from the outside instead of it coming from within.
We are working through limiting thought patterns, limiting. It may be why we attach ourselves to others happiness out of fear of loss instead of assurance of everlasting love.
With all this being said who’s the only person we are responsible for? Ourselves of course! No one or nothing outside of ourselves can give us, hand over our happiness. The happiness we all crave comes from within us and is up to us to embrace it.
This is were addiction, over consumerism and codependency manifest. People believe that the things they buy, the drugs they take or even people they love are what makes them feel happy or happier then they felt before they felt a lack of love.
But where does that feeling of happiness come from? It is coming from within us. We create the feeling we feel.
The true human struggle an my biggest lesson thus far is that we cant be the ones to give happiness to another.
I feel I have so much within me, that I can give it away and help the world be a happier place through my love light but really it is all about my own happiness and that truly has been the ultimate awakening experience.
The more that we get to know our own unique feeling of happiness, remembering where our happiness sources from regularly, the truer our happiness becomes and the more sustained it will be. Our need to over-eat, over-drink. over shop and over indulge will lessen and our excitement for our day to day life will be restored.
When we become more responsible for our own joy/journey and stop feeling into the responsibility for the joy in others, the more happiness we will be encouraging in all our lives collectively, the stronger we will all become and the less drained we will all feel. Then and only then we will all be living out our true purpose. Our sacred spiritual growth ♡*
