YOU ARE THE SOURCE OF ALL THE EXPERIENCES
The following is from a VERY TRIPPY book (Zero Limits by Joe Vitale and Ihaleakala Hew Len). The book itself is uneven, but there are some mind/ego-blowing ideas in there - here is one of them…
“If you want to solve a problem, work on yourself. If the problem is with another person, for example, just ask yourself, ‘What’s going on in me that’s causing this person to bug me?’ People only show up in your life to bug you! If you know that, you can elevate any situation. How? It’s simple: ‘I’m sorry for whatever’s going on. Please forgive me.’”
He went on to explain that at heart we are all pure, with no programs or memories or even inspirations. That’s the zero state. There are zero limits there. But as we live, we catch programs and memories, much like some people catch a cold. We aren’t bad when we catch a cold, but we have to do whatever it takes to clean it. Programs are the same. We catch them. When we see a program in another, we have it too. The way out is to clean.
Dr. Hew Len said, “There is a way out of problems and disease for any individual willing to be 100 percent responsible for creating his or her life the way it is moment to moment. In the ancient Hawaiian healing process of ho’oponopono, the individual petitions Love to rectify errors within him. You say, ‘I am sorry. Please forgive me for whatever is going on inside of me that manifests as the problem.’ Love’s responsibility then is to transmute the errors within him that manifest the problem.’”
He added, “Ho’oponopono sees each problem not as an ordeal, but as an opportunity. Problems are just replayed memories of the past showing up to give us one more chance to see with the eyes of love and to act from inspiration.”
Complete responsibility means accepting it all - even the people who enter your life and their problems, because their problems are your problems. They are in your life, and if you take full responsibility for your life, then you have to take full responsibility for what they are experiencing, too. (Re-read that, I dare you.)
This is a head-warping, mind-opening, brain-cramping concept. To live it is to transform your life as never before. But to even grasp the idea of 100 percent responsibility is beyond what most of us are ready to do, let alone accept.
But once you accept it, the next question is how to transform yourself so the rest of the world changes too.
The only sure way is with “I love you.” That’s the code that unlocks the healing. But you use it on you, not on others. Their problem is your problem, remember, so working on them won’t help you. They don’t need healing; you do. You have to heal yourself. You are the source of all the experiences.”
