I totally agree with you. This is a well written essay. I hope many people read and put to use what you have written here, because the bottom line is, "We choose our success."

danae

Hello Robert, thanks for an interesting article and much food for thought. Its rather synchronicitous, if one believes in that sort of thing, to have come here to read this today.
I can't help but hold the opinion that there is a need to redefine 'good' and 'bad' - to look at ideas of success and failure, 'right' and 'wrong'. The crop yields no fruit - is it a failure? Really? Was the work of raising the crop wasted? Perhaps there were moments of profound connection with the land that brought about inner changes, or some other story. Who knows.
As I wrote on my blog today there is an immediate tendency to problematize, dismiss, reject and deny when there is something that does not fit with expectation or perceived 'need'. We throw away our 'junk' - those things about ourselves and our lives that 'don't work' - and all that is unacceptable to us, but all we're really doing is shifting it to other places.

And yet, the Universe is perfect, we have everything we need and nothing we don't - come what may.

Yes, you are so right about being responsible - self-accountable if you like. If I have learned one thing in this lifetime its that nothing that happens 'outside' of me is also happening 'inside' - they are the same.

(now not so)scared

True words of wisdom!
Thanks.

Felita

Dear Robert and others, I seem to feel that sucess is relative to getting what we want not necessarily what we need. I always say " Have no expectations and you CANT be disapointed" We come in with what weve got its our personal coping mechanisms that decree how we tackle this. And once we go the high road we cant walk the low road or our soul knows its own betrayal.Follow the heart not the head yet have discrimination. Thanking you for your concise wisdom and clarification of the individual journey. Aum Shanti Felita.

sonja

Hi Robert,

If you asked me what one positive characteristic I possessed, I would have said, "Responsibility" for most of my life. A while back, that perception was rocked to the core as I realized that, if I did everything correctly and the desired result did not occur, it was someone else's fault. As you stated, sometimes the answer is "no" even though we do everything right and we cannot play the blame game. I am now emerging (the Phoenix rises again) after a period of "fear of doing the wrong thing" and a subsequent period of deep reflection of my life's events to become another persona - one that I hope will lead me further on the right path. Thank you for your kindness and treatises such as this one which help nurture me through many a dark night.

Robert

Hi Rodney - Thanks. We truly have more power to control our "destiny" than many suspect. Thanks for commenting.

Hi danae - It seemed like a good thing to remind us that we have the ability to determine the manifestation of our planets to a large degree. Yes, "good" and "bad" are usually in the eye of the beholder, and we really don't know what IS good and bad in the long run. "Success" and "failure" are often not able to be determined until we watch the movie of our lives from the other side. Life is a funny thing, with many interrelated things not understood until more experience is assimilated. You're also very right that preconceived notions and vain expectations often turn out to be illusions. Something about "rearranging the deck chairs while the boat sinks" comes to mind. Inner and outer do a dance, and mirror each other.

Hi (not now so) scared - Good that you're learning we have the power to transcend fear. Fairly quickly, if you think about it.

Hi Felita - Very Zen insight about no expectations. The high road usually yields the finest quality insights.

Hi sonja - Responsibility comes and goes, and we learn various forms of it through equally varied experiences. Sometimes it's to accept the Divine Will, other times it's to effort as strongly as we can without attachment to the outcome. A good Dharma practice, whether pleasant or not. Glad you're no longer fearing "doing the wrong thing" since now you know better. We all go through dark nights - we're all in this together, and will learn to hang together so we don't all hang separately, to reference the august Dr. Franklin.
