Tyler’s Journey to Life: Day 6- Self-Forgiveness on Being a Rebel
A point which has come up is my relationship with authority.
From Merriam-Webster’s online dictionary (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/authority
noun \ə-ˈthär-ə-tē, ȯ-, -ˈthȯr-\
: the power to give orders or make decisions : the power or right to direct or control someone or something
: the confident quality of someone who knows a lot about something or who is respected or obeyed by other people
: a quality that makes something seem true or real
So we see that authority is basically synonymous with power in that first definition. As in, the power to make decisions that effect another. My relationship with those who have been placed in positions of power throughout my life has taken a generally oppositional nature. From an early age I defied orders from parents and teachers, eventually gaining a reputation as a class clown for my tendency to disobey rules.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to participate in the Rebel Character as feeling cool.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to have an oppositional nature to Police Officers.
I forgive myself that I’ve accepted and allowed myself to isolate myself within wanting to hold onto the idea of myself as a rebel wherein I convince myself that I am better off alone because I am a true freedom fighter and others are too stupid/selfish/ignorant to join the fight.
I forgive myself that I’ve accepted and allowed myself to hold onto the memory of myself as a shaman, where I was important in manipulating people into doing the right thing.
Within this, I realize that I made a decision to not walk what is best for all for selfish reasons. I see that I have designed my life around trying to hold onto this selfish idea of myself instead of walking back to that point of deliberate abdication of self-responsibility. Instead of opposing authority within the delusion of my own free-will:
I commit myself to align myself with the True Authority of Life as the Physical.
I commit myself to direct all points of energetic fluctuation to nothingness so that all that remain is the physical, here, expressing and living what is best for all.
I commit myself to walk a process of Self-Forgiveness and Self-Correction as Self-Commitment in Self-Discipline so that I may one day be granted true authority as a Creator of Life as what’s best for All.
Walking this process of measurable change will require Self-Discipline, something which those placed in positions of power have managed to neglect teaching many of us. Therefore, it is up to us to invest in establishing Self-Discipline to act in ways which are best for all in establishing a world where all life is supported to the utmost extent possible. This is what is being proposed in the Living Income Guaranteed.
Meanwhile, those of us who dare to support life must walk a process of aligning ourselves with the principle of what’s best for all, something which will take Self-Correction through Self-Forgiveness and walking Self-Commitments to change ourselves in a real, measurable way. There are people walking this process and publishing themselves in the Journey to Life blogs.
