Giving up the illusion of responsibility doesn’t mean we will turn into careless  forms of Creation. It is not “responsibility” which makes us moral. It is empathy. In fact, self-blame often gets in the way of our ability to feel truly sorry.

When we surrender our sense of responsibility, our focus turns outward away from ourselves, and we become more attuned to others. And when we “do something” that causes someone else pain, it is not our guilt which is going to make things better. It is the ability to forgive ourselves that allows us to extend the same love and understanding toward the ones we hurt.

Self-forgiveness comes from surrendering the illusion of choice. What happens in the moment comes from a Source outside of ourselves, despite our false sense of control. Forgiveness is the end of the suffering, and the cure for every broken heart.
