Personal Responsibility Leads to Self-Rulership

We have been programmed to put others before ourselves, even when we have not filled our own cup.

This results in a society that pushes out an “image” of philanthropy, service, and care — but ultimately, is ego-driven.

Many do things in order to be perceived in a good way, to support a cause so they can stand taller amongst the group.

And yet, we live amongst people who cannot stand in their own as a result.

Without the label or the group, who are we?

Are we satisfied?
Are our individual needs met?
Are we healthy and thriving?

Or are we living the facade of these things?

As we take a deeper dive into our individual school of thought, what we will find are our sincerest aspirations — which isn’t just to be of service or to support a cause, but rather to grow individually.

To heal our own body.
To make things right inside our own hearts.
To give our personal needs some much needed attention.

This is a time to make self-rulership a priority.

🔑 The best way to help others is by letting them be responsible for themselves.

+ we don’t need to fix others
+ we don’t need to feel responsible for someone else’s pain
+ we don’t need to play savior or God

These are the ego’s clever ways to play useful, to gain appreciation, to feel loved and adored by letting others lean on us so we can feel some kind of pleasure, sensation, “get love”.

But, these feelings of satisfaction flee and we are left feeling drained, angry, abused, under-appreciated…

And it was all self created.

The ego offered a quick fix— a dopamine high, an endorphin kick, a sense of accomplishment after a long days work.

But it’s all fleeting. It’s not sustainable. It passes, and then we need another quick fix.

We go shopping. Catch a buzz. Have sex.

But deep down, we are unfulfilled because we’ve made our worth dependent on what we give and do for others, without ever pondering: how am I giving to myself?

The feeling of self-loathe catches up with those who do not inner stand the importance of self rulership.

That’s because self rulership doesn’t feed the group mind nor the ego — it feeds the spirit and nourishes the soul.

Self rulership makes you feel strong from the inside out.
