THE ART OF THE BLAME
God told Adam that he had sinned.
Adam replied, “Yes I did—but Eve made me do it!”
There it is…the magic, go-to word, “but”!
He refused to be accountable.
And this is the consciousness we are still trying to transform over the last 5000+ years.
This is what the next few months in the book of Shemot/Exodus is all about. The essence is about freedom from slavery in Egypt. But it’s really about freedom from “but & blame.”
Blame the other guy.
Kabbalist Rav Berg told me the entire Torah story is NOT about some biblical characters prancing around a garden. And freedom from Egypt is not about the nation of Egypt but our own ego. Specifically it’s a stunning secret about human consciousness and our evolution.
When we become the cause of our problems, we now become the cause of a solution. Because consciousness creates reality. That is how we gain freedom.
If we are missing anything in our life, it’s because we are still in effect/victim mode, reacting and not creating.
Here’s a secret: the negative traits we transform in ourselves, are the traits that we automatically never judge in others.
The negative traits that are still unchanged, buried within us, those are the traits we project onto the people who have the same traits and then we judge them.
In short, we naturally offer compassion to people who have the same traits that we already corrected. It’s subconscious.
And we blame and judge people who have the same traits and sins that we are still hiding inside, oblivious to their influence upon us.
That’s how it works.
Ain’t easy, is it.
And that is the root of the word “but” and the root reason why we blame.
Through the power of the Book of Shemot, we can all achievefreedom from this slavery.
