Self Responsibility: Key Laws of Grace
Self Responsibility is a foundational aspect of being a mature person, let alone being Awake! The degree of Self Responsibility has a direct mathematical effect on your Awakening. Enlightenment is a simple practice and process of being responsible for your attention placement. You can be Present and thus Awaken in that moment, or be lost to the mind and unconsciousness. Only you can choose to be Present, that is your primary responsibility. Watch the video, it will require re-watching as it covers many layers. Tap/click .
Self Responsibility: Be you own Guru
Self Responsibility is a core Law of Grace, it is a base multiplier in the math of Enlightenment that will determine how fast or slow you awaken. It's tough, and you have to be relentless. This is why I suggest a few key strategies to help:
1. Presence journal / success journal
2. Watch and re-watch all the videos in my website. Question and watch for the evidence in your life. Subscribe and watch the YouTube channel videos until the habit forms in all life activities. I did this with listening to Eckhart Tolle audio 2003 -2007, then I permanently Awoke to Abiding Presence. All my videos prompt your correct Presence practice, few other teachers do this.
3. Deepen your skill set and learn correct Presence practice with the Laws of Grace online course or the shorter Correct Presence course.
4. For extra support and real progress there is the Mastery Club and Coaching. This is where real feedback will save you years to decades of being stuck in the complex issues that are faced in this process of becoming truly, evidence based Awake.
Self responsibility means you are 100% responsible for your own happiness and Enlightenment. Only you and your choice of attention placement and choices of activities will bring you real Awakening.
Emotions and reactions: Do you own your emotions? Do you react when emotions arise? Nobody can make you feel a certain way. Watch unconscious people, they will always blame another for their feeling state. They will use emotional blackmail to bend another person to do something. To take responsibility means any feeling state that arises is 100% yours, and yours only. This helps develop your Emotional Intelligence. This is where you realise you need to be the owner, thus responsible for any emotion that arises.
Buying into the collective mind set: As your awareness deepens you will notice the subtle of collective, family and groups patterns. Do you play into them? The point with this is to see it, be responsible that you can be true to your own 'truth' (regardless of what that is) and then decide do I play that game or not. It is then up to you do you speak up or go with the 'flow' of the other or others but remain Present inside as to the reasons for you choices consciously. a simple example is do you walk across the empty road when the crossing light is red? You may get fines for jay walking is seen by law enforcement.
CAUTION: Discipleship to a Guru or teacher
Discipleship to a Guru or teacher: Many Gurus and some teacher weaken personal responsibility by saying hand over your authority to me. If Guru says something like this then it is a fact that they are trying control and weakening your self responsibility. Please keep your common sense. Only you are responsible for you actions, attention and outcomes. If the Guru is truly Grace based (and there are some) that does not mean that they personally can decide if God bestows Grace on you or not. That is a violation of Free will. This is often how a manipulative teacher can set up a cult and manipulate.
If the Guru of teacher is genuinely Enlightened their Presence will assist - this is called "Good Company". Good company, your tribe and these dynamics of this are covered in the Laws of Grace online course, Mastery Club (as that is a community of Good Company) and coaching. More of this topic regards Guru-ship and possible alternatives is covered in the page Why a Mentor not a Guru page.
A real Guru or teacher will not want to take your authority from you. They will respect your choices as they will be living the essence of Law Zero themselves. Then you can apply the Rules of Evidence and see that they behave this way. Evidence does not lie, only humans do.
Self Responsibility means real Awakening
Can you imagine how different life would be after a decade of non-stop Presence? I entered Abiding Awakening, the place where Presence has never left me, at the end of 2007 which is over 12 years ago. In that time my Presence, peace, joy and has deepened significantly. I've acutely observed what factors that make this journey work or fail.
I've researched with myself and others what habits, beliefs, spiritual myths, incorrect teachings and other factors that stop people progressing when it could be a lot easier and faster.
In this video I answer that challenging question of 'Who Am I' and who is the chooser, who is the owner.
The pain-body is will be dispatched within 18 months approximately of correct Presence practice. After that it's just a matter of those Laws of Grace being implemented and kicking on with practice.
