About Responsibility

Version en españolversão em portugues

Assuming the responsibility about deciding in a coherent way with our peace, requires our attention to what we think, feel and express at any moment. In order to build with others, we can go beyond the obligations we create from what we think we need.

When we trust our decisions to build in the present in a sustainable way, we increase the confidence in ourselves and the level of responsibility for everything we commit to from the conviction and the certainty of being ready to contribute aligned to our peace and the present context.

It is essential to trust our personal construction in order to trust the personal construction of all the individuals in society, so we can build together from the freedom of being who we are from our integrity.

From our peace we understand the appropriate measure between giving and receiving, we relate from the certainty of being where we want to be and learn that our word is worth it and that we are responsible for ourselves.

Contributing Vs. Helping

Version en español

versão em portugues

Reflecting on the way we express ourselves is essential when we seek the transformation of patterns in our reality, that’s why I share the analysis of two words that, despite being synonyms, have a different essence that makes the difference between the intention behind of our actions.

When we pay attention to the way in which we use the word “help”, we realize that we start from the base that who needs to be helped lacks something, for this reason, lately, I’ve decided to use the word “contribute”, because it means giving the part that corresponds to us where we are, this way we understand that we all have what is necessary to do what corresponds to us, as a cell we must take responsibility for our function, working together with the other cells that have their way and appropriate measure of contribution.

Our experience as social individuals can be approached from many perspectives, we’ve been so long focusing our energy on beliefs such as inequality (inferiority/superiority) and emotions as pity, it’s time for us to open our hearts and connect with our truth, in order to realize that we are all capable beings and responsible for our own existence, that we only need to channel our efforts into our personal talents focused on a common purpose of building from our heart.

From now on we can choose the most conscious way of contributing, of giving what corresponds to us and receiving with gratitude what corresponds to each cell of this great organism, this way, the functioning becomes more efficient, because the flow of energy increases and allows us to act as a team, in which we know our own responsibility and do our part with conviction.

Let’s remember that our society is a reflection of who we are, a more society with integrity depends on the integrity of each one of us, from every little detail.

Conscious Children: 6 actions to harmonize our home

Version en español

versão em portugues

We’re all children, sometimes we create bonds with new people in our lives who welcome us as family, others live the experience with our blood family, at the end we’re all children and being a child is to find a way of integrate to our parents through respect and love. Now that we know how to exercise respect (click here to read the text about respect) we can understand better what we can do as children every day.

Our parents share their experience and show us different ways of living. The fact of having them in our lives doesn’t mean we have to be like them but that we can learn from them and teach them (click here to read the text about differences). Family is a structure full of diversity in which, when applying acceptance and respect (click here to read the text about conscious respect), we are able to enrich our points of view to integrate them into our experience.

Let’s see some useful actions to harmonize family life by being more conscious children:

  1. Absorb the best from around avoiding judgement.
  2. Take resposibility for our lives, avoiding blame.
  3. Colaborate with harmony and maintenance of home.
  4. Establish and respect space and boundaries (click here to read the text about boundaries).
  5. Be open to communication.
  6. Thank for being in Family.

In our home we can, in a more relaxed way, learn to live by pleasure, with no obligation. When we empower ourselves of home we discover the importance of teamwork. As children we must understand that we are all different and in order to work on family challenges it’s important that we learn to communicate. Usually, parents give their best from their experience, although in the eyes of some it seems the opposite. Neither the children, nor the parents have manuals, for this reason it’s important to create a healthy space for communication in which the points of view can be expressed in an environment of acceptance and respect.

I decide to be an active part of the harmony and maintenance of my own home right here and right now. What about you?

Love,

Do We Really Act With Respect?

Version en español

versão em portugues

When we pay attention, we perceive that is necessary to construct coherence when it comes to respect, since, the word itself, has been used in a very shallow way that, usually, favors ourselves according to our personal belief. So, do we really act with respect?

The word respect comes from the latin respectus that means attentions, consideration, but its social meaning has been touched, mainly, by fear. When our behaviour has been acquired without being questioned, there is the tendency to assume that we respect because we try to please people (by fear of the conflict, punishment, loneliness, etc.) and/or we develop mecanisms of manipulation to get what we want, and we exercise them with so mastery that we don’t even realize that we are being little considered to others, and to ourselves.

From this perspective, it is important that we connect respect to responsibility, which leads ourselves to recognize and accept the consequences of our actions. When we decide to know ourselves better (click here to buy the eBook 7 Levels for Personal Empowerment), we discover our ability to channel our reactios into actions that construct through knowledge integrated to our experience and to accept and integrate our talents, and the absence of them, in a constructive way. This process allows us to become conscious about the fact that everything we feel, think, say and do, has an impact and that, when we assume our responsability for our actions, we become more respectful to every new decision we take with attention and knowledge.

The following questions are very useful to identify if we are really acting with respect, and can lead us to transform the way we express ourselves in order to connect in a more coherent way with our desire of constructing peace from each one of our decisions:

  1. Do we express our point of view as an experience to share (wihtout the need of imposing it)?
  2. Do we nurture thoughts of constructivity about ourselves and everything around us? (click here to read the text about reprogramming our thoughts)
  3. Do we talk about experiences and points of view to transmit and integrate?
  4. Do we know what we want and communicate that in the most constructive way possible (with coherent and applicable arguments)?
  5. Do we nurture feelings that make us feel connected to humanity and the world?
  6. Do we keep the promises we make?
  7. Do we accept other as they are and construct along with them, generating an appropriate flux of giving and receiving?
  8. Do we set our boundaries, communicate them and respect the limits of everyone and everything around us? (click here to read the text about setting boundaries)

After asking ourselves these 8 questions, we can see that the “YES” answers tell us where our construction of respect and responsibility is strengthened, and “NO” answers show us where we can focus our attention, from this moment on, to further strengthen our expression. We construct our destiny with every decision we make here and now, it’s up to us using the available resources in the more constructive and integral way possible.

3 questions to transform our self-relationship

Version en español

versão em portugues

Relationships are as simple as we want to see them. It’s important that the first relationship we analize in order to have better relationships is the one with our own selves. Relationships we have with people depend on our worth and the boundries we set. (click here to read the text about setting boundaries)

Let’s make some questions to answer them consciously to ourselves.

  1. How do I treat myself when something doesn’t go as planned?
  2. Do I accept myself or try to be what everybody wnats from me?
  3. Do I take the responsibility of my life and my decisions? (click here to read the text about deciding by conviction)

It’s important to understand that is with our own selves that we have to exercise every aspect we feel is missing in our lives. What we expect from others must be something we can give, giving and receiving is very important to keep the harmony in relationships.

When we start to work our patience, acceptance, discipline and responsibility from our own selves, we feel more complete and comfortable.

By changing the focus, and integrating the outside with the inside, we understand the importance of making every decision of our lives with the graeatest calm and certainty possible (click here to read the text about polarities as learning). This way, our relationships with the world transform themselves, we understand that each one of us needs to be completely responsible for ourselves so we can live in a more thoughtful way.

After a long time of giving up on my responsability I decided to take it all back and I really feel very empowered (click here to buy the eBook 7 Levels for Personal Empowerment), I accept and know myself better and I really know what I want, so I direct my energy to construct the life I desire in society. What about you?

Remember to share this post with your friends and tell us your own story on the comments. How do you live your self-relationship?

Forgiveness Part 2: Integrating Guilt

Version en español

versão em portugues

Following forgiveness series, we are approaching guilt in order to understand how to integrate it in a way we can transform whatever has stopped being useful in our present.

Some of us has learnt to assume the reponsibility for other people well-being, from emotional to material. From this role many guilts emerge thourghtou our lives, since we try to please everyone to ensure harmony wherever we are and if we feel we can’t we blame ourselves for the consequences of our “faults”.

By definition, guilt is the fact of having committed a breach of conduct especially violating law and involving a penalty, but, is everything that happens someone’s fault?, what if we ALL learn to assume our responsibility in every issue and look together for the way of doing the necessary adjustment for the next time we ALL being responsible for the “good” consequence of our acts?

I want to share a personal story. One day, leaving the parking lot of a mall, I crashed into a moving car. The two people at the wheel were walking in reverse and we crashed. When I got out of the car, the very nervous lady began to tell me that it was my fault, I simply told her that we were both driving and that, therefore, it was the responsibility of both of us. By this I mean by taking responsibility, this can happen in different environments and areas in our life, but always through dialogue we can build a better consequence for the next.

Let’s integrate the guilt to channel it as a personal responsibility, in which each of us consciously assume that our acts (or lack thereof, which are also acts) have an impact on everything and everyone around us and construct more assertive consequences from each situation.

Remember to follow the Empowering Angle Portal content by subcribing, following us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/empoweringangle/) and Instragram (https://www.instagram.com/empoweringangle/), we will approach forgiveness integrated to control in the next post..
