Since we create every situation we desire, we must take full responsibility in it. It is all a part of us – the thought, word, action and also its results.
If we follow the thought, word and action, and shun away from the responsibility of its consequences, then we are separating ourselves from the experience and are not enjoying the experience in its entirety. No matter if the experience is a pleasant one or an unhappy one, the fact remains that it has to be fulfilled.
The experience may carry the energy of fear, anxiety, joy or peace. Whatever it may be, it is an experience that we have chosen in a conscious or unconscious state of our mind, and it must be followed through. When playing a game of golf or tennis, your may start hitting an excellent shot but without follow through it will be incomplete not the good shot you were hoping for. To play the game was your choice so getting a good result from it is your responsibility.
Similarly, your thoughts and words and their resulting actions and consequences are all that you must stand for and take full responsibility for. When we run away from an experience or pull away from it mid-way, we will never enjoy the sense of fulfillment we desire and will be left wanting. So if we observe the desires we wish to fulfill, it is imperative that we first look at our intent to achieve them. Once we know our true intent then we must move forward into a space of mind that allows us the full ability to fulfill what we wish to achieve.
This space of mind is nothing but the mind-set, order and process that we wish to follow to get what we desire. For example, when we prepare for an examination, we need the full syllabus and a study plan based on time allotment. We follow this to be able to complete the portions on which we will be questioned during the examination. We have to follow a time bound schedule and a desire to succeed that pushes us to follow through the whole process. Once we get the understanding of the topics and how to go about approaching the study plan, we are able to achieve our targets in the stipulated time. This ensures our success in the examination.
So where does it all start from? It starts from our intent and then the desire to follow through the process with absolute awareness and work to the best of our capability.
The same holds true for every experience. Every experience in our life is not an examination, nevertheless, all situations need our thorough understanding about what our intent is behind that experience, how we wish to approach it and if we want to accomplish completeness in it.
So it is with our soul’s human experience.
We as souls have made the intent to experience a human life. Here we are… The intent is made correctly for our soul’s growth. Then what? Now we must proceed by observing the paths in front of us, making the correct choices and moving forward by following through with our actions in the right direction. This all may seem like too much to do in one shot. Perhaps it is but we have chosen a whole lifetime to be in this school and if we look at every moment with conscious awareness, we will be able to follow the process and fulfill our life’s destiny. No one can stop us then from passing out with flying colors!
