There is much debate on this subject, and my personal belief is that we are indeed responsible for our results. There is significant evidence that we are not victims of other peoples circumstances, but rather the creator of our own experiences.
Observe those around you. All humans function on the premise of feel, speak and act. The act of speaking shapes the experiences of the speaker. We make thoughts/feeling real, but speaking them aloud.
Take the time today to really listen to what you are speaking. Are you shocked by what you say? Is your like following your spoken word?
Ponder this and give me your feedback. Until next time.
