Day 74

image (34)I’ve often encouraged people to take responsibility for their thoughts, feelings and actions and this is undoubtedly an important part of learning how to direct your life. We all have to take responsibility for our lives but we can’t possibly be responsible for the thoughts and feelings of others, especially when the others have reached adulthood.

 

Each individual is entirely responsible for what they feel, think and do. It’s as simple as that. This implies that we can’t make people feel or think things without their consent. So when we speak of some individual making us angry, it’s vital to remember that the anger is only in our hearts. It isn’t anywhere else. How we feel and how we think about anyone else on the planet is only ever an extension of what is happening within us.

 

We often refer to our conditioned reflexes and responds from childhood but isn’t it time we took total responsibility for how we react, how we feel, how we think? Then we can learn to choose thoughts, feelings and responses that support our well-being and let go of the conditioning that has shaped our negative responses for so long.

Day 144

Sometimes we seem to be so completely preoccupied with our senses, thoughts and feelings that we fail to recognise how anyone else is feeling. This is not healthy because it encourages a sense of separation from others that distorts our connection to the people around us. Breathing more slowly and a little more deeply, we can relax and learn to focus on how people express themselves, how they feel, how they perceive the world. This is the foundation of communication and in understanding others we may begin to understand more about ourselves.

Day 146

Do you often feel the need to explain yourself? Do you ever find yourself telling others why you do things, justifying your thoughts, feelings and behaviour? This might not be a good habit. If you’re comfortable with whatever you’re doing, how you feel or how you express yourself, you shouldn’t need to explain or justify these things to anyone. The need to explain is often a mechanism for excusing ourselves or for seeking approval from others. The important part is to understand yourself. Then you’re less likely to get lost in the stories we weave to justify our actions. If you’re not comfortable with your behaviour, change it. If you’re not producing the results you want, repeating the same thoughts, feelings or actions will only continue to produce the same outcomes. Explaining yourself to others rarely produces anything worthwhile. Changing how we think, feel and behave is the gift we possess to alter the outcomes of our life.
