Becoming Aware

makes me happy.



I was reading in Bruce H. Lipton's, The Biology of Belief, that he used to close out all his public lectures with these words of guidance, "...we are personally responsible for everything in our lives." As you might be able to guess, I like it.

He goes on to say, "That responsibility was way too much for some people to accept." And after one particular lecture, he had a very distressed older woman from the audience approach him back stage contesting his conclusion, "She did not want any part of some of the tragedies she had experienced."

Lipton then realized he, "...didn't want to contribute to foisting blame and guilt on any individual." And so he modified his original statement to...

You are personally responsible for everything in your life, once you become aware that you are personally responsible for everything in your life.

I like it - a lot.
