About: Werner Erhard Ideas and Applications on Facebook

A black film poster, reading in small print at the top "FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA PRESENTS" with "KOYAANISQATSI" in large red text, subtitled below with "LIFE OUT OF BALANCE"  The white text in the middle reads "October 4, 1982. More than 5,000 people filled out the sold out Radio City Music Hall to experience a remarkable film event.  That event was the world premiere of KOYAANISQATSI.  Now everyone can share the power of that experience."  Below that text, reads "DIRECTED BY Godfrey Reggio, MUSIC BY Philip Glass, CINEMATOGRAPHY BY Ron Fricke".  Various logos are at the bottom of the poster.(*)

That you are the cause of everything in your life is a place to stand from which to view and deal with life " a place that exists solely as a matter of your choice. The stand that one is cause in the matter is a declaration, not an assertion of fact. It simply says, “you can count on me (and I can count on you) to look and deal with life from the perspective of my being cause in the matter.”

When you have taken the stand (declared) that you are cause in the matter of your life it means that you give up the right to assign cause to the circumstances, or to others. That is, you give up the right to be a victim. You also give up the right to assign cause to the waxing and waning of your state of mind " all of which, while undoubtedly soothing, leave you helpless (at the effect of).

At the same time, taking this stand does not prevent you from holding others responsible"
