It’s all three of their faults. The snake was being a jerk, Eve was selfish, and Adam made his own choice. So all three of them were responsible.

Some want to blame that which cannot be named, aka G-d, but G-d is beyond good and bad.

To label G-d is putting label that attempt to fence in that which is ubiquitous, omniscient, omnipresent and more. Dualism is another trap.

The vast majority of the people … struggle with accepting responsibility.

Or is it the fear of failure? If you blame another when you don’t achieve something then you never really failed, instead the person you blame is the one who failed you.  It’s so much easier to point fingers….

Parents are just easy targets.
  

There’s a LOT of this going on right now …

Pointing fingers, blaming someone else, especially parents, companies, leaders, governments etc. Some people are hiding behind self-righteous beliefs, statements, but it’s still blame even if you dress it up with spiritual dialogue. Conspiracy stories are also ripe, stories shared to perhaps justify the right many feel entitled to place responsibility on another or something else for the decay (t.Pluto Rx in Capricorn). Social media mobbing (t.Saturn in Aquarius) is making it easier to do so as it affords yet more distancing to responsibility for our actions or words as we dispel fears by pointing fingers.

All the while, each and every one of us should instead be looking closer to home (t.N.Node at 0° Cancer).

The community and its agreed upon laws of course. If someone broke into your house and hurt you; from whom would you demand justice, or would you? What if that happened and in seeking justice the ones with the power to do something told you it was a conspiracy story? If they paralyzed you would you blame them? Im just curious where actual wrongs fit into the philosophy you presented, because it just seems to be in denial of that fact that they do happen. The fact is that many do not take personal responsibility for their destructive actions and would not hold themselves accountable without some outside pressure. 

Once the wrong has been righted, I do agree that healing and shadow work are called for, but in the interim often action is required.

I am not going to debate with you the dichotomy of good vs. evil that many great philosophers since Heraclitus have pondered and illusion theory has further enlightened.

What I wrote was a perspective, with some possible Astrological references, of looking within instead of pointing fingers and blaming another or something else; absolutely nothing in denial about that.

We all have free will!

I did blame God at times. Not something to be proud of!

But, I think God was understanding enough not to strike me with lightning. yell

When my dad died, I read this book called God Never Blinks by Regina Brett. Lesson (Chapter) 8 is titled “It’s Ok to Get Angry with God. He Can Take It.” She says a good relationship with God is like a good marriage, one where you can be open and honest (and get angry) and still feel safe. Intimacy and all that. 

So, personally, I think you’re all good.

Ever read Jacob’s personal story in the Old Testament? Jacob means “to wrestle with G-d”.

It’s expected. Almost a prerequisite to growth.
