“Understand that “beingness” is a State in which one IS, not an action which one takes. You cannot DO “happy,” you can only BE “happy,” depending upon what YOU decide to be. You cannot DO “sad.” You cannot DO “afraid.” You cannot DO “wronged,” or “hurt,” or “annoyed.” You can only BE these things. And what causes you to BE them? Many people believe it is what is going on around them; that it’s what someone or something else is doing. Yet it is not. It is your DECISION about what someone else is doing which causes that. It is the choice YOU make.
The complexity surrounding this whole business is this: so many of the choices you are making are now so automatic, so deeply based in prior experience, that they seem to be non-controllable by you. And so it looks as if the actions of others, or experiences exterior to you, are causing the response within you. Yet the truth is, you are choosing to be in the State in which you find yourself.”
Neale Donald Walsch, in “Bringers of the Light”
