The First Lesson in Owning Your Own Life

QUESTION

What’s wrong with knowing that someone or something outside of me is responsible for making me feel unhappy?

ANSWER
Everything. There is no profit in blaming your painful position in life on other people or an uncaring world. This is the solution the false self wants you to swallow, because it knows that if it can get you to see life its way, then you will have no choice but to spend the rest of your life struggling with life. This is its conquest. First it blows you off course and then it gets you to blame ill winds. Its very existence depends on keeping you off balance and looking in the wrong direction. 
Start seeing through the blame game by learning to let go of all the familiar but self-abandoning answers the false self wants you to believe in. Own your own life.

    Letting go….I am a prisoner in my own mind…My emotions control me….my life seems futile and empty….I pray that what I am searcing for will soon end…..

  • Ms Naomi

    When I was in my college years, I strived to please everyone I met. I became a nervous wreck because I felt that I had to do everything for everyone. One day during exam week, I sat in my chair, fidgeting and worring about the exam. I was the only student in the classroom because I came early to impress the professor. After about ten minutes, my professor noticed my anxiety, and said, “The only thing you have to do this morning is to focus on this exam. Everything else is unimportant.” I took her simple advice and applied it. I started every morning by deciding what was the most important thing for this day. After about 3 months, I realized one morning that I was much happier than I used to be. I could honestly say that I had friends that wanted to be my friends.
