thought

Accepting full responsibility for every little thing in your life, my friend, is what opens the floodgates to joy and power.

Or to what we here call "joypower."

Every little thing, 

    The Universe

Q found that lonely. I like knowing there are other beings in the Universe to play with & exhibit responsibility for their own monkeys & circuses.

The fictional character Q, invented by a human, theoretically found what you think the above would be like lonely? #hmmm.

#hmmm … me too. I don’t personally read between the lines of the above that there are not other beings in the universe. I see taking full responsibility for my experience as being about me and my own ability to experience joy, not about if others exist or not. Apparently you are thinking something else.

Yep, my friend everything is your circus & the monkeys are dancing for you! Good Boy! nullnull

Mmmmmm … now your talking!

How’s your circus? Are you enjoying the show?

#AlreadyAlways #TuQuoque replies – boring pellick!

The entity, called “The Universe” in this thought,  is just as much a fictional character as is Q.  null null

#AnyDayNow I expect someone one of you to proclaim “Everything is Fiction” – similar to

Well the term “Accept Full Responsibility” sounds like a fluffy generalized political slogan to me …
like “Liberty” or “Marke America Great”.
.
Let us see if we can make it more #specific !

There is nothing one does to accept #responsibility.  

But certainly there is no responsibility unless there is control.  So the operative edge of this slogan becomes ...


Taking control of every little thing in my friend’s life will open the floodgates of power!

my friend
… which is a “no brainer”.  
It is necessarily true
it is embedded in the structure of the language in which it is represented …
which implies it does not #inform.


Now whether ...

taking control of every little thing causes my friend to experience joy

depends on the peculiarities of my friend

himself, or

← herself.

it is like saying,  …
“Girl, you should comb your hair!”

XOR maybe your linguistic artifacts have nothing to do with me at all!


yep almost certainly so null … that is frequently, almost usually, what happens when language representations are transmitted across #ego bubbles.

Funny thingy they are also running around inside you folk’s own ego boundaries as well. null


true.

null Hmmm…. responsibility  ← to whom? for whom? for what? within what narrow or wide context?
Are y’all responsible for what Trump does? ← getting political for the moment. Are you all responsible for what a Leviathan does? the Big Bang? Your own gossip?

No. The Universe is simply you, your higher self.

I suppose to some though, that would be fictional. null

I already have, already did many times. How often have you heard me say “all is illusion”?

Fictional is only that which does not match with your own beliefs. (or mine, as the case may be)

Yep it is your fiction … the part is not the whole, #fabana !

XOR is just a plain LIE! Stop it! null

You got off on the wrong track right at the start there seth.

There are several things one does to accept responsibility. At least ...
  1. Not blame anyone else for any part of the experience one is having. 
  2. Not try and get others to do something or be something to complete oneself.
  3. When something doesn’t feel right, look inside, not to others, for the solution to making it better. (the Ho’oponoono way).

Can i quote you on …

all is illusion

nathan

#illusion quote by nathan … see also disbelief in #otherness 

Yes. I am responsible for my experience of any of those things. I am not responsible for your experience.

Not sure exactly what you are quoting. I said what I said with clarity. You are welcome to re-present that clarity. You are not welcome to hack it up and re-present it as your own as if it were mine.

i do understand your philosophy nathan … you repeat it enough. 
All of those things i considered in my response from my philosophy.

XOR, nathan you just believe anything you say even if it is just a plain LIE! Stop it! null

The statement has both and is incomplete without both. Your rewriting it as “power only” with a name in it is just a hack. It is not a representation.

I believe what I say with clarity, yes.

You don’t believe what you say with clarity? #hmmm null


Yes. All is illusion. There is no doubt about that for sure. Sages have been saying that as far back as recorded history. It’s easy to prove and experience. You can quote all of us on that, sure.  

not at all … my treatment considered both things that you ANDed.  both things that you implied. 

logic, my dear boy, logic.

“A and B implies C” is true only if both A and B are true.

Well as I said, you changed the formula at the beginning when you changed the premise to be “There is nothing one does to accept #responsibility.”

What follows that change is not re-presentation … it’s just “your presentation” … including the logic involved.

Well yes … that is my assumption … i am glad you teased that out yourself null

Consider if it is true.  

Or maybe prove that is is not by demonstrating what one does to take responsibility …
except perhaps to take control.

I already listed some of the more important things one does to take responsibility in  (comment 76703).

Why are you re-asking?
 

← So does he ! null

That’s good.

It would be very inconsistent for someone to reach and maintain an office of power without believing “what they say with clarity”. I am glad the multiverse continuously demonstrates the consistency of the Law of Attraction.
