There are people who suffer massive resistance to change. I am not talking about rare case here. If you look around carefully, you will be surprised to find majority of the people around you, maybe even your own self included, suffers from this symptom of what I call ‘Intellectual Constipation’. Law Of Attraction and Power Of I philosophy requires that one is free from such inhibitions.
It is difficult to precisely define what is ‘Intellectual Constipation’. However one can only learn by studying more examples. Personally, I came across one classic case very recently and that prompted me to do some introspection as well as realising that this is something that needs to be expressed well.
So here is a real life example. Please visit this link and look at comments of a person who happily passed judgement on what I had written. Once again, remember, I don’t hold any grudge against him. Just not my way of life. At the same time, yes I do admit that this response did upset me for a brief period. On meditating, I realised that I am being reactive. Ins’t that strange? Then again, I have never claimed to be above all. For me the quest for perfect harmony is still on. Everyday, every moment, every experience only evolves me further. So long as I am willing to go with the flow, the process of evolution will always be fun. I am glad that I was able to accept the reactions that I had so that I could resolve the reasons and understand that it is not the other person that has generated the disturbed emotions. It is rather my own rigidity that creates the intolerance, resulting in disturbed emotions. Hence I am responsible for what I feel. Not him.
Taking full responsibility is definitely a very liberating thing. Unless of course you start going on a guilt trip. There is fine yet definite difference between taking responsibility and feeling guilty. In a way feeling guilty is the escapist way. You are not taking responsibility when you start feeling guilty. The immediate and obvious next move on your part is to find someone / something else to put the blame on. This way you are back in the vicious cycle and never get out of it. Taking responsibility is different. It is accepting our flaws and forgiving ourselves for that. In that matter it is also accepting our qualities, appreciating them and thanking the Divine for granting us the same. You see the difference?
