PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, September 30th, 2014 by Stuart Wilde in SIXTH SENSE

“The simplest and easiest way to go beyond your pain is by working on and concentrating on your strengths. I know that psychologists will tell you that you have to take your wounds, your inner-child traumas, and the various psychological fractures within you to a therapist, who will help you identify them. Then you have to relive them in your mind’s eye and act them out, thereby releasing them.

There’s nothing wrong with that system, but it has one drawback. By dredging it all up and talking about it, the ego rises up because it’s being noticed, and it focuses on the injustice of it all. The ol’ ego hops up on its righteous soapbox, beating its chest, calling for attention and sympathizers: “Look at me, what a horrible life I’ve had. I need help and care and special treatment. I need attention, and people should commiserate with me and cut me a lot of slack…” blah, blah, yawn, yawn…Time passes, and all you’re doing is dis-ease.”

Stuart Wilde, in “The Sixth Sense”
