In this session, we will be continuing to explore the Pathways to Liberation Matrix practices that support the skill of Awareness of Response-ability. Freely choosing one’s responses to what shows up in life, owning one’s part in what happens. Not owning others’ parts, and acknowledging that one’s actions do influence others.
UNSKILLED: Victim consciousness: Lacks clarity about whose part is whose; perceives that one’s experience and actions can be caused by others or external circumstances (e.g.: I caused yours, you caused mine, or it caused yours or mine)
AWAKENING: Becoming aware of victim consciousness and its costs; relief and freedom in the awareness of our power, and still finding ourselves stuck in habitual patterns of guilt and blame; diagnoses others as stuck or blaming, and attempts to educate them to protect oneself.
CAPABLE: Able to take ownership of one’s experience and choices when one becomes aware of blaming, justifying, or minimizing, without trying to take ownership of others’ reactions and responses.
INTEGRATED: Consistently able to respond with equanimity. Grounded and centered in the authorship of one’s own life. Clear about others’ authorship of their lives.
