Sometimes, I feel like the Universe is really trying to tell me something. If I'm being particularly dense, the Universe just keeps trying.
This idea that I am responsible for my life experiences has been jumping out at me from every corner lately. I've read about it in "spiritual" literature. I've read about it in business books, and blogs.
For some reason, even though I'm in intellectual agreement with this principle, it's a tough thing to live by. And, it's not just the lazy tendency most of us have to blame other people or circumstances when things don't go our way. No, it's that I sometimes don't want to take responsibility for anything. I want to drift, to take the path of least resistance. But, I don't like the results of such a path.
So, what is it that makes it so tough (for me) to take responsibility? What makes it so easy to delegate responsibility to other people (blaming) or events (whining)? Does anybody out there struggling with this issue have any comments or suggestions?
