In the West, the assigning of blame is a psychological concept that is very dear to us, and is something we do very intensely. Our entire sense of social order and justice is one of assigning blame. It’s always somebody’s fault. But the act of assigning blame away from ourselves is a denial of the truth of a situation.
Spiritually speaking, all qualities, everything that has ever happened to us or will ever happen to us, has as its point of origin one place—ourselves. If we psychologically displace the blame away from ourselves and onto something outside of ourselves, we give away the most valuable thing we have—the power to change and transform our lives.
