Self-responsibility means realizing I am the author of my choices and actions. I’m responsible for my life and well-being and for the achievement of my desires. You must maintain a viewpoint of accountability. Accountability is the willingness to maintain the point of view—whether or not it is yet your experience—that you are a part, cause, agent or source of your experience and everything around you.

What it is that has brought you to where you are is insufficient to solve the problems of where you are in life, it isn’t powerful enough to solve the problems that it has created. Every stage of development and strategic thinking reveals its own limit, becomes its own limit. We have a whole corner of the world called what I know and most of what you know isn’t so! There is a point in life where things shift - you discover that the more you know the more you don’t [...]
Among many native traditions, it is said life is simple if you: Show up. Pay attention. Tell the truth without blame or judgment. Are open to outcome, rather than attached to outcome. To begin the process of personal growth, engage your self-observer and: Delete the need to understand. Make no comparisons. Release all judgment. Maintaining a viewpoint of accountability. Accountability is the willingness to maintain the point of view - whether or not it is yet your experience - that you are a part, cause, agent or source of your [...]

On a fall afternoon — I was five or six – I walked along one of the tree covered lanes on our farm. On the left along the dirt path large, curled, dried, brown leaves of the May apples, on the right, the moss covered bed of a trickling stream. The fresh smell of the earth. The crispness of the air. The cool touch of a snow flake burst into awareness as it fell on my cheek, and in the distant charcoal-grey sky, billowing black clouds of an approaching storm. I [...]
When you feel guilt, an important characteristic of this feeling is that you should be punished. You should be punished because of the things you have done, or the wrong person you believe you are. Once you believe guilt is real, then you believe that you will soon be punished for the guilt, or the act you believe you are guilty of. Guilt always demands punishment, and since you fear punishment, this is the origin of fear. Despite the seeming cause of fear in the world, the ultimate cause of [...]
You can only continue a round of self-betraying behavior, if you think you're going to get something different from that next cycle. All addictions are self-betrayal. Defining yourself as an object is self-betrayal. The greatest fear is not defining yourself at all. When you get close to not defining yourself in any manner, the greatest fear is that you will not exist. It is a strong, deep, fear that all the conditioning is attached to, if you stop, then you will not exist! And it is true, if you stop [...]
What was your first experience after looking at the Tarot card to the left? When I first looked at the card, the Devil, I was horrified by what I perceived as something negative and evil. I said, "get that thing away from me." It was three years before I understood what I saw in the card were shadow aspects of my personality, my disowned self, mirrored back from the card. The disowned-self represents those parts that for one reason or another are not acceptable to the super-ego and our waking [...]
According to the 3rd century Chinese philosopher Chuang-Tzu, who one night: "I Dreamed I was a butterfly, fluttering hither and thither, content with my lot. Suddenly I awoke and I was Chuang-Tzu again. Who am I in reality? A butterfly dreaming that I am Chuang-Tzu, or Chuang-Tzu imagining he was a butterfly?" As we move into a most significant time in history, there is an invitation to be of service as an agent of change in the world. The paradox is that change requires doing nothing. There is no need to [...]
If you are indulging in who you are not, you cannot be truly who you are. Personality involves “my thoughts,” “my feelings,” and “my behavior” the three areas within which people identify themselves. These combined are the foundation of the self-concept, a false-self and the root cause for much of the pain and suffering in life. The intention of most traditional therapy is to give you a more functional self-concept, to put a fresh coat of paint on the old myths. The outcome, a better version of the same old [...]
