When we ourselves are aligned with what we think, what we do, what we say, and who we are, we’re taking responsibility for how we show up. And showing up is a lot deeper than what we have been led to believe.
Recently, someone shared that he got swept into someone’s story and played out his part until he couldn’t handle the pain anymore. And then he remembered, it wasn’t his story. He didn’t need to play any role assigned to him by someone else.
So, he listened to his heart and knew what steps he needed to take. And he decided to make everything simple by taking responsibility to author his own role and experiment.
It is not about waiting for someone else to change. When we make personal changes, we can be amazed that life gets simpler by taking responsibility for how we react. The realization that we are not responsible for how anyone else reacts is freeing. We show each other who we are through our actions.
To grow, we learn to let go. It is time to cultivate and nurture so that we can harvest. This is a new era of being heart centered. It is a time to embody our words so we can experience inner harmony, which is our true nature.
Taking Responsibility for Our Choices
We can set a course to sail the ocean, navigating our lives in our chosen direction. Along the way, we might encounter beautiful islands with turtles and orcas, reefs with breathtaking wildlife. And shores with fascinating people and intriguing cultures.
Will there be storms along the way? Yes, of course, we will face bumps along the path. But with trust as our guide, we’ll respond with higher levels of awareness. And maybe it’s about taking responsibility to no longer play a role that doesn’t suit us. And maybe we also know our enough?
Should we feel that we would like to change course along the way, we may do so. This is all in the evolutionary adventure of life, and how we respond and engage matters. There is no set route to follow.
At the end of the day, it’s the simple things that open us to the uncharted possibilities within us. And they can only be experienced through the whispers of our hearts. Do we listen to our questions and discover our own answers to what is truly calling us?
