Of course, certainly, you can hold Me responsible for everything in your life. You can hold Me responsible for your stubbing your toe, yet where does that get you?
I am the Doer. There is no doubt of that. I set everything in the world in motion. I desired a world, and My desire was enough. My desires were not yet words, you understand. My heart desired the beautiful world, and My desire was fulfilled so easily and dreamily, so much so that We can say My dreams come true.
I never desired you to stub your toe. It’s not such a good idea to blame Me for everything that happens. Certainly, you can hold me responsible for anything you like, the weather if you like. I set the weather in motion, yet the thoughts of everyone in the world contribute. Weather erupts. Weather lets off steam when steam needs to be let off.
The weather isn’t out to get you.
Everyone is innocent, and yet everyone is responsible. It is not possible for you to connect all the dots. You are appalled that there are tsunamis that injure little children and leave those that you may see as villains intact. There is a greater background to the world beyond what you conceive, and yet your thoughts and ideas, nevertheless, conceive the world.
This is one good reason why you don’t want to judge. You just don’t know enough to judge. The best you can do is make a guess. You don’t have enough information to make a judgment.
Rise above judgment, and you make great progress. Judgment is an entanglement that doesn’t do you justice. It is not for you to spend your life accusing anyone of anything.
What would you do with your life if you no longer held blame? What is there to blame? If there is error worth accusing, it is ignorance. There are mistakes of reasoning, or there is no reasoning. Nevertheless, everyone pictures himself as reasonable and knowledgeable, especially of others’ wrongs.
What lightness there would be in the world when judgment withdraws itself. Everyone would be a millionaire of non-judgment. All the energy that would be put into love and joy instead of pointing fingers. Just the same, many in the world are attached to judgment, as if judgment is the making of them. “Look at me! And look at others who are not as good as I am. There is no comparison between them and me, is there?” And, so, if another is less worthy, then you are superior.
Many look down upon those who are poor, and many look down upon those who are wealthy. Even when they do not display their disapproval, they still hold themselves superior. Maybe even you sometimes, once in a while. When there is superiority assumed, there is no humility. Be grateful for the privilege you have. That is humility.
Here’s the thing: Everyone on Earth, despite differences of any kind, are in the same boat. Life is before you, and the life before you is an unknown.
You don’t give Me ultimatums nor do you offer Me bribes! It is said that My Will be done, and this is a thousand percent so. In another sense, We can also safely say that it is your Will that be done. How can that be so? You would never request let alone order some of the curves that life has thrown you. No one would. If you can conceive that you requested what you do not want, you can change your order. You get better results when you accept responsibility and take it from there.
