PONDER on THIS for Friday, May 18th, 2007 by Shakti Gawain in THE PATH OF TRANSFORMATION

“Many of us have spent our entire lives seeing other people or external circumstances as the cause of our difficulties. Unfortunately, when we finally grasp the concept that we are responsible for our own lives, too many of us begin to blame ourselves for the problems that exist in our reality…When we are blaming ourselves or others, this is fundamentally a disempowering act. It comes from a sense of helplessness and makes us feel worse, actually magnifying that helplessness. Taking responsibility meanwhile, involves claiming our power to create and change…We need to cultivate the ability to appreciate the reality we’ve already created, and see the problems in it as gifts that can help us grow and evolve.”

 Shakti Gawain, in “The Path of Transformation”
