This is lesson 4 in the series "Conquering Codependency - Loving Without Leaning" looking at aspects of codependency from a spiritual point of view. Each of the 48 lessons includes a prayer or meditation.
Spending time and energy blaming others or circumstances delays constructive action. Circumstances are as they are. Having already happened, they are beyond our control.
By our free will we choose how to react to others and circumstances. Acting for the good of all brings the most positive results.
The intent to be positive and to act positively in negative circumstances transforms the event.
Positive acts in response to negativity change the negative to positive self-growth in us.
Our body remains relaxed and our mind stays free of tension and anxiety when we choose to act for the common good.
Remember, placing blame just sticks it outside ourselves in a way we can't touch or change. To reclaim inner peace and happiness, push the blame away and look for the doorway to happiness through marching forward in peace and forgiveness.
Constructive Action Prayer
“Lord, may I remember
And constructive action
Instead of blame
Lift me from negativity
Into creative, peaceful, easeful living.”
