So I’ve been dealing with the matter of personal responsibility a lot lately, which I think is a fairly normal thing to be dealing with when learning about the Seth Material.
I’m coming up against a wall with this issue though, and I’d love to hear other opinions and interpretations.
Seth says that you are in complete control of your own reality - you completely create your own reality. But it’s also said that you can’t “control” other people, and you’re creating your reality jointly with the people who are involved in it.
So are you really 100% responsible for everything that happens in your reality? And if you are, how does that fit with the idea that you can’t control other people and you’re creating a joint reality with other people?
How does this work, in action?
For example, if I’m discussing something with a friend or family member and they react in a negative way that I did not (consciously, at least) anticipate, how responsible am I for their reaction? I know that I draw everything in my reality to myself, but I can’t actually make someone react a certain way, can I? Isn’t their reaction mostly on them, and my part in it is just bringing that into my personal experience?
Any thoughts anyone has on this topic would be much appreciated, and I’m sorry if my questions are little unclear. This is a hard topic for me to articulate, for whatever reason.
