Journal Entry # 64
May 17th, 2010
If we can recognize our mistakes it means we can find a solution. This is one of the fantastic ideals in being human. Making mistakes is unavoidable. One could say it is necessary to our growth as both individuals and as a species. I have begun over time to introduce my set of ideals which I feel could help humanity become what we truly can be if followed. Is this arrogant to think that I could have a solution or a set of guidelines that no one else has thought of? Perhaps it is. I think what I have is just a set of ideals that people can recognize but have chosen to ignore. I believe I have put them in a recognizable order that will simplify life.
- 1. The truth; we either acknowledge it or we don’t
- 2. We are responsible for all of our thoughts and actions within the house rules.
- 3. Selfishness, everything we do we do for selfish reasons.
- 4. Offend, no one can offend you or insult you but yourself.
This is the Code that I try and live by. In post #62 I introduced the idea of #1 the truth. This post I will focus on responsibility. The idea behind the code is that once we understand who we truly are we can then begin to take ownership of our lives.
I read an article in the news today about a woman who was suing her phone service provider because one of the bills they sent led her husband to find out that she was having an affair. It was the companies fault that she got caught. http://www.thestar.com/news/gta/crime/article/810236–toronto-woman-sues-rogers-after-her-affair-is-exposed?bn=1 Link to article. We live in a world where humans are just not willing to accept responsibilities for their own actions. This woman is more typical than you might want to acknowledge.
Before I get into discussing responsibility we need to establish what the house rules are. They are very important. They are the things in life we have no control over. I believe this to be everything except what we think. Now remember what we think will determine what we do. Now these rules are established due to the laws of nature.
Gravitational Force, Speed of light, Electromagnetic force, Strong nuclear force and weak nuclear force are some examples.
Big Bang Theory demonstrates the house rules.
If you are not responsible for your actions then who is? Once you accept this you realize that you have control to a certain extent but more influence over your life than you could possibly imagine. No more blame to dish out you will now look at your own role in each situation.
I am writing a book that will explain these concepts in detail from how to apply them to your personal life to how we can apply this on a global scale. Next post I will look at number 3 selfishness. All I have done is open the door to change one either accepts or does not.
Seek the truth always
