In this very litigious society we exist in everyone is seeking out who is responsible, who is at fault. If something goes wrong or has a less than desired result than someone must be responsible, someone else is to blame. It seems it is one of the hardest things to do to take responsibility, to take responsibility for our own actions. Yes, others are using their free will against us all the time and have karma to pay for their actions upon another Oden says, but we as individuals are responsible for being at a certain location, frequenting with a certain crowd, accepting energy from others that might have been best left alone. Oden says it is all about percentages. He says the universe and the spiritual planes are all about math, sacred geometry. So when an event takes place, percentages of karma are doled out to the appropriate individuals. Coming to grips with ourselves and accepting responsibility for our actions or our percentage of responsibility is paramount in moving forward on our paths. Couple this with the extreme amount of self esteem issues everyone is dealing with and we end up in a perpetual cycle of blame, self pity, guilt, passive aggressive behavior and pain. If everyone was truly comfortable in their own skin, believed completely in their abilities, had undying faith that they were whole, complete, a part of the universe and could express this belief in their actions than perhaps there would be less hatred, judgment, arguments, back stabbing, revenge or pain inflicted upon another. We would not feel the need to express ourselves in a less than Godly manner. Looking at ourselves as the highest part of ourselves than we would tend to express ourselves from that viewpoint, which Oden has told us is the only way we should react to people and events at this level. There is no time like the present to start believing how wonderful you are. It doesn’t matter if you are fat, skinny, tall, short, dull, ugly, poor, rich, talented, educated, or any other description you can put upon yourself. Know you are perfect for you, no one else. You are exactly who you came to be and you are growing and moving down your path all the time. You take responsibility for your part in all actions and outcomes and are always doing better than you did before. Be happy with yourself. God loves you so why don’t you. Be and do, that is who we are.
