When things get put on automatic, when we allow ourselves to even think that ‘someone else is responsible’, ‘someone else can take care of it’, then we are headed downward and not upward in the grand scope of things. We’ve assigned ourselves as Effect and not as CAUSE individually and collectively. IN essence, we’ve allowed ourselves to become irresponsible.
Questions: Do you want a better world, do you want a better community, do you want a better family, or a better marriage? Then you’d better take responsibility for it! What could be worse than having a fight every month in your marriage? What would be a problem you can think up that would be worse than that? A loss in several months of income perhaps? or a family divided and not living together…YOU think that part up! and then what part of losing several months of income or a family divided and living separately could you be responsible for? Don’t like the government? Then decide that you’ll be responsible for some part of it and quit ‘leaving it up to someone else to do something about it’! YOU/ME can do something about it…anything if we but just decide to do so but DO IT! Start at the family or local level…and be responsible for that. Take it upon yourself to communicate to others and then decide to listen to others, too.
Who or what can you take care of today? Take responsibility for someone other than yourself. Want a better marriage? Then find something you could be responsible for in that marriage. Is YOUR freedom and rights on automatic leaving it up to someone else to defend or protect this state or country you live in? If you are not actively taking part, then TAKE YOURSELF OFF of automatic and do something about it instead of just taking care of Number #1. And quit complaining about things the way the are…quit your petty gossiping and your petty grievances and get into ACTION. If we could each of us do this just today, it would be a better world almost instantly.
Decide this moment to take responsibility for others than yourself today.
I AM RESPONSIBLE.
I CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT AND I’M IN ACTION NOW.
