Today is Day 55 of AGNT’s Season for NonViolence. Today, you’ll want your journal or iPad out again, as we consider RESPONSIBILITY. Ready?
How much RESPONSIBILITY do you take for your life and the quality of life around you? Do you believe that you are the person who puts your left foot in front of your right, to take any action in life? Do you take RESPONSIBILITY for the unproductive or negative results of the risks you take? Do you nurture your relationship with the Divine and take RESPONSIBILITY for following the guidance you receive? Do you help your loved ones, sharing household RESPONSIBILITY when they are sick or having a difficult day? Do you share in your community by voting and by attending your HOA meetings? Do you fill your car’s gas tank and eat the right lunch for your body?
Did you get your answers into your journal? Then you are ready for AGNT’s Day 55 meditation:
DAY 55 Mar. 25: The thought for today is RESPONSIBILITY. The quality of your community starts with you. Take RESPONSIBILITY wherever you are. Whatever we are today is the result of what we have thought, spoken, and done in all the previous moments before now. The RESPONSIBILITY for both present and future is in our own hands. If we live right today, then tomorrow will be right. This applies to our physical, emotional and spiritual life; we each have the ultimate RESPONSIBILITY for our choices.
Today: I will pick up trash that is not my own, whether at home, at the office or on the street. If there is a conflict present in my life, I will take responsibility for my part in the conflict.
