RECOVERY from SPIRITUAL AMNESIA
It is easy to cling to ideas, beliefs, plans, material possessions, and notions of "being right." Suffering is caused by attachment. Clinging. Holding on. Judging. Getting stuck on a point of view, or an illusion. Extreme attachment is called addiction.
I am accountable for how I experience my life. Whether or not I am aware of it, I am accountable for whether I choose to act consciously and response-ably, or to abdicate my life to the control of my NAP. How I play the game of life is up to me. Denying my personal accountability does not change the truth; even if I use elaborate and persuasive reasons, excuses, and rationalizations.
