When you admit the TRUTH to yourself it always brings something with it. To the surface.
Whatever it is, it must be welcomed - not denied! Be it strong feelings or body sensations. Those are the healing currents to restoration of balance. To wholeness.
Sometimes the first feeling which arises as a reaction is that of resistance.
Resistance TO FEEL. To feel the flood of emotions coming with facing the truth. Resistance to 'doing' based on our belief that it is going to be unpleasant or bad, is really us fearing failure.
It is a fast arising subtle feeling of unpleasantness, which prevents us from taking action required. In order to avoid this UN-EASE we reject the idea of taking action in our mind.
With respect to any issue/conflict, we always have a CHOICE in line with our free will: to look at ourselves (our OWN mistakes and contribution to the problem), OR to look at others (point our finger and blame them). We are equally as free to make this choice as others are, which if understood, brings us closer to truth, closer to true freedom.
Everyone is capable of change. We all have the same choices to make:
1. to take responsibility for ourselves
2. to blame it on something, or someone one else.
Those who will change will do simply because they WANT. Yes, it is that simple!
Because they are fed up with things being the same. Really they are more intelligent Beings. They know that what they have been doing up until now hasn't really worked.
First step is accepting that they have failed which requires a lot of bravery.
So, be brave, because from there the only way is UP. Blame is for the lame...
