The concept of PERSONAL ACCOUNTABILITY seems to have popped up everywhere!! Or perhaps, it's just me and the fact that consciously I am waking up at MACH speed of late . . . .
In my perpetual quest for truth, freedom, authenticity and empowerment I have stumbled upon, ran from, stumbled over and embraced many versions and interpretations of PERSONAL ACCOUNTABILITY (also known as enlightenment, conscious awareness, awakening, spirit consciousness, and so on . . .) The integration process happening for me at this point in my evolution is this: as I embrace BEing ACCOUNTABLE for my own consciousness, awareness, integration and knowing, I empower myself with INTERDEPENDENCE!!
What a beautiful concept! Interdependence allows us to be connected to all that is and yet remain in our sate of individuality! How exciting!!! Being ONE with all consciousness is definitely a place of bliss; yet physically existing in a culture that is attempting to free itself from the co-dependent clutches of generations and lifetimes is certainly convoluting the reasoning around what INTERDEPENDENCE looks like!
So could INTERDEPENDENCE be the conscious awareness that we are all ONE yet allow for individuality to exist within our collective ONENESS?? How do we fully embrace this state? How does PERSONAL ACCOUNTABILITY play a role in the design of SELF??
Here are my thots:
I fully embrace the knowing that I am one with the Universe and the Universe is one with me, that I am Spirit/Soul first then body (not body with a soul, but rather soul with a body), that ALL I do ripples out and effects ALL consciousness! In my belief, I embrace this collective connection to all that IS by accepting my individual role. I accept my individual role within collective consciousness by embracing the knowing that I am only responsible for my role in this cosmic existence. I then fully embrace this responsibility by choosing thoughts, actions and beliefs that align with my individualism yet support collective consciousness.
Furthermore, I hold a belief that says INTERDEPENDENCE is a state of BEing that recognizes that individually we are only able to DIRECTLY affect SELF. Thus PERSONAL ACCOUNTABILITY is the recognition that we only have ourselves to blame or thank in all aspects and situations of our physical existence. We cannot blame others for any experiences any more than we can authentically thank others for actions we orchestrated and performed OURselves. NO BLAME . . . you say?? What about the VICTIMS???? That my friends is the whole purpose of this discussion . . .
What ABOUT the victims??? We have already existed for eons of time holding strong to the belief that we are at the mercy of the gods or the powers that be . . . ravaged with fear and sabotaged by the destructive beliefs that keep us in a perpetual state of BEing LESS than. What if together we embraced the thought that there are NO victims??? NO VICTIMS!! Instead, could we venture a look at the belief that states ALL experiences are divinely set forth by our own BE-ing prior to assuming a physical state??? Should we take one step further and integrate this belief into a knowing, how would that change our perspectives . . . it would change the WAY in which we live our lives . . . it would raise and sustain the very vibration of the planet we inhabit!!!!
As we embrace the concepts of PERSONAL ACCOUNTABILITY and INTERDEPENDENCE we continuously propel the evolution of consciousness that we are in the midst of. However, no matter how greatly we desire global awakening, we are only responsible for the awakening process of ourselves . . . in doing so, we offer permission to those around us to do the same . . .
Each day, just for today, I hold the intention for each of us in our purest BE-ing state to remember who we REALLY are!!
Namaste ALL Ways
