Nothing Is Anyone's Fault

There is no you, no me, no anyone.

Why is this so? Because its just true.

So what is there? Just emotions, thoughts, ideas, circumstances..etc Its like all these things create our "map" of the territory (what really is, like objective reality beyond a paradigm).

In essence we really are sort of like raindrops ziging and zaging down a windshield.

These maps are also used to form another mental structure. A self image. Self images are like phantom ideas that also drive the choices we make and the way we feel about things.

So there isn't anyone doing anything. There are just these complex webs of ideas and feelings and attitudes at work.

There is just a chaotic nature about the mind of man, just as the universe  that acts on it is chaotic by nature.

Energy is used to put things into order. And thus, we must expend a certain amount of energy to understand these things and bring order to the pysche.

I've learned the virtue of positivity by people like Tony Robbins (10 positivity challenge), studying psychology, and early on through the bible. Here's an excerpt I never forgot:

8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. - Philippians 4:8

So while I'm on the path to being continually enlightened, and at times I am content to simply zen away a few hours, it helps a great deal to get along in life's circumstances to do the above. Focus on everything that builds us up and keeps us moving. BUT... not as an escape. We do it because its healthy. Because its what makes this human experience a more pleasant and passionate one.
