With such a topic I could write for days but I figured I will take bits and pieces of the conversation on “mastering”. It is important in all things to have your premise and this in mine “You are responsible for your actions” – I know it is so easy to blame others, quite frankly it feels good because then we wouldn’t have to do any work. However, that’s my story and I am sticking to it. I’m not responsible for your actions neither are you mine.
Mastering our action is about taking appropriate action – doing the right thing at the right time in the right way. In Deuteronomy (The message) it states “The right, the right! Pursue only what’s right! It’s the only way you can really live…” This for me suggest that our actions determine how we want the universe to respond to us. Amazing thought right, we have a choice into how the universe will respond to us. What are you putting out into the Universe, whether in thought or action? What if I told you that your life is a reflection of what your putting out? Could it be that simple friends – that our days should be spent on mastering ourselves so that harmony, peace, love all the bountiful qualities of the universe would be reflected.
“Don’t pick on people, jump on their failures, and criticize their faults – unless, of course, you want the same treatment. Don’t condemn those who are down; that hardness can boomerang. Be easy on people; you’ll find life a lot easier. Give away your life; you’ll find life given back, but not merely given back – given back with bonus and blessing. Oh My!!! Giving, not getting is the way.Remember Generosity begets generosity.” The Message – Luke 6:38
I am reminded of a wonderful thought I heard and still ponder. The more you stay in reflect I find is the more revelations are given to your spirit. The poem reads – Sow a thought, and you reap a feeling; Sow a feeling, and you reap an act; Sow an act, and you reap a habit; Sow a habit, and you reap a character; Sow a character, and you reap a destiny.”
This life school is about sowing and that sowing begins in your mind. Like the farmer knows his land get to know yourself. What triggers you? What drives you? What are you giving to others around you or how are you showing up in your life? These are excellent starting point to discovering yourself and ultimately practicing mastering yourself.
You are responsible for your actions. Taking responsibility for all of your actions empowers you, strengthens your autonomy and lets you consciously create your future. Psalm 106:1
