2 On Seeing Simple Truths

2       On Seeing Simple Truths

EXPERIENCE has taught us that there is only one-way to gain headway in our struggle with mental and emotional distress: to search out our true history and process it.  Not our most recent past, but the actual history from our childhood. 
When we have been trapped in non-fulfilling circumstances for long periods of time "trapped between the rock and the hard place" we either create personal myths or fall into line with cultural norms in order to survive.  These myths allow us to be present in the midst of our chaos and survive.  So, the loaded question is: is it possible to free ourselves from these survival delusions? 
History demonstrates clearly that these survival delusions were very important to us.  They allowed us to stand in the face of adversity and survive. 
The problem is, they sneak into everything that we think, say, and do, and every life is full of them. 

Everyone Sees Their Own World for Their Own Reasons.
Their Own World and Their Own Reasons are Steeped in Terms of Self-Preservation - of Protection.
