Follow up on my last entry: "Master of Your Inner World"
One day after publishing my blog entry "Master of Your Inner World", I was reviewing a book recommendation that I received lately for BestSpirituality.com.
The book in question is "The Messiah Seed" by Story Waters. So I did a search on google and found out a site dedicated to it. I then found and read an article written by Story Waters titled "The Power to Choose Joy - A bridge to The Messiah Seed" and found out that it was very compatible with the short article I just wrote "Master of Your Inner World" and thought I would share this with you, as it could help you understand even better what I was trying to convey.
"To see your Self as not being accountable for your state of being is to live within a belief in external forces that have control over you. This can be manifest in such forms as a controlling person, governmental laws, or a lack of abundance; basically symbols of perceived limitation. This births the ability to blame . To blame is an attempt to hold this externalized aspect of your power responsible for your state of being, instead of being fully responsible for your Self. Re-assimilating this externalized power is a part of the journey to being All That You Are. To take back that power is to come to the realization that all power over your being is yours alone . It is to realize, within your Self, the absolute power of choice over your being .
To experience your power of choice is to realize that you are the one that possesses the power to choose joy for your Self. When you realize joy as being a choice you will realize that all states, including suffering, must equally be a choice. Through this you will see that to take responsibility for your own suffering is to empower your Self to be able to choose joy. A part of the journey to joy is therefore to take ownership and responsibility for your own suffering. To do this release all sense of 'blaming others'. Understand that this will be a gradually unfolding process."
