“We are not to blame for the way our lives are unfolding. Blaming ourselves for our present reality is like blaming a child for being ten years old instead of twenty or thirty. We are evolving in a natural way. We’ve done the best we knew how up until now. That is one of the ironic things about life, that from moment to moment we have only limited knowledge about our lives, and we can only make choices and decisions based on what we know. To ask more than that of any human being is as futile and unreasonable as asking a six-month old child to explain what she wants instead of crying. Blaming is a static state, one of standing in place and not moving on, while responsibility – the ability to respond – is dynamic, the very essence of forward movement.
