Uuuuh, Just One More Thing...

There's an important distinction that some people seem to be having some trouble wrapping their heads around. I've even seen an online review of Zero Limits where the reviewer didn't get it, yet was bold enough to publish his misimpressions. And here it is: taking responsibility for everything in your life, is not the same as being at fault for everything in your life.

In Self Identity Ho'oponopono, one of the central precepts is that we take 100% responsibility for everything that appears in our lives. Now, the reviewer believed that that means that ho'oponopono proposes that the War in Iraq is the practioner's fault. But that's not the case, it's not our fault, it is just our responsibility to clean it.

In other words, we are not the "perps," instead we are the ultra-cool cops who are responsible for clearing the cases. The perps are the programs we've picked up from God only knows where, that keep replaying as the problems we perceive. But we can get rid of them. We do this by apologizing for whatever is going on in ourselves that is creating the perception of the problem and then by asking for forgiveness. And that's what Ho'oponopono is about, not fault, but taking responsibility and keeping our sides of the street clean, for the benefit of ourselves and everyone else. We're cool cops working the beat of Love!

So keep using the phrases and drinking the blue solar water!

Peace of I,
