RESPONSIBILITY

One who accepts responsibility has the opportunity to choose between expressing calmness and order and feeling anxious and crowded. The timid or self-centered draw back from its demands or pass by on the other side. The conscientious, accepting these demands, too often bear them as a heavy burden.

Responsibility is defined in part as "that for which one is answerable; a duty, trust, or obligation." True responsibility involves fulfillment and is necessarily linked to a divine source. Why, then, is it so often side-stepped on the one hand or laboriously borne on the other? Because of a misapprehension as to where true responsibility lies, and whence it receives its inspiration, strength, and ability for fulfillment. One's attitude towards it depends on what he accepts as cause or source, the limited and confined or the limitless and ever-unfolding.
