[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] The Laws

All you gotta do is say yes. Open up your mind and just rest Floetry

I was having a discussion with a friend about Universal Laws, she asked me
if God wrote those laws and I said yes, she asked me to show her. We were
not able to continue this discussion. I thought about what she asked me
- "Did God write these laws?"

What did God NOT create?

A Course in Miracles says all of us are messengers of God and God is in
everything and uses everything that we make for his purpose.

I thought about how much we forget who we are and act from that space of
forgetting. We do, say, and create things that prove that we have
forgotten. Self sabotage, encouraging people behaving badly in our lives,
accepting less than what we deserve, self doubt,the list goes on and on.

I thought about how powerful we are just because of who we are- children of
the Most High

I thought about how many of us search for so much outside of ourselves,
when it really is all inside us

I thought about how we are either afraid or unwilling to question beliefs
and stories that was passed on from earlier generations especially if it
means facing uncomfortable feelings

I thought that I would share some of the Universal Laws over the next few


Whatever rises will fall and whatever falls will rise again. Change is the
only constant.

Responsibility – the ability to respond. Please note, not the ability to
react. Responding is a conscious choice, reaction is an unconscious choice.

You are never given anything you need for your healing, growth and
evolvement that you can't handle. Challenges are sent to you to see if you
have, or can develop, the ability to respond.

The Universe respects you and honors you with opportunities, sometimes
incorrectly seen as problems, to enable you to develop your responsibility
– your ability to respond.

You are not responsible for anyone else. Their ability to respond is also
being tested. If you respond for them how will they heal, grow and evolve.
You dishonor them by responding for them.

Your true responsibility towards others is to empower them by encouraging
them to grasp the opportunity presented to them so they have, or develop,
their own ability to respond for their own issues.

By taking responsibility for yourself you ensure that you are fit and
healthy emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually. If you are in
that space, fully fit and healthy, and you have surplus energy, then you
may help others empower themselves to learn to be responsible.

You are not responsible for protecting people from their feelings. Stand in
your integrity and honestly express your feelings as you take
responsibility for yourself. By honestly expressing your feelings, you
allow others to grow in responsibility as they hear and then feel their
reactions and responses to what you are feeling about them.

By taking responsibility do not blame others or project your negative
feelings onto others. Take total responsibility for your life.
