How To Stop Playing Victim: Part 2

                                                     by Larry Heisler, M.A., LMT 

 

"Nobody can make your feel inferior without your permission" 
Eleanor Roosevelt 

 

When you finally have come to the realization that the main 

purpose of your life is to grow in every way possible

and that every experience,
every circumstance in your life
 is directly supporting that theme of your evolving,
on that day,
you will begin to come into your power!
You might not know it yet but

YOU ARE LIVING IN AN INTERACTIVE UNIVERSE.
It's main theme is for you to grow and then to use your powers to uplift and inspire those around you.
It's the Prime Directive.

To grow and to serve. 


You are not a victim.

And the part of you that gives away its power and thinks its suffering,
is your little stinky EGO.
It's your little stinky EGO that gets angry, it's your little stinky EGO that gets impatient, and fearful and insecure and jealous and every negative, whining, reactionary emotion.

WAH...WAH...
It's your little stinky, immature, lower self, that keeps you separate from your divinity,
EGO that wants to be in control.

Every time you play victim,  

you give away your power and open yourself to all things sickness.

In Yoga your lower Ego self is the dark side that keeps you embroiled in illusion and keeps you separated from the higher road, your light within. 

Your lower self can't handle the truth. 

So the people and the circumstances that shine the light of truth on your inequities and consequently press your Ego's big reactionary, insecure buttons,
are not your enemies,

the people that press your buttons are your teachers!
That's how St. Theresa became a Saint. 

 

You might have heard this before.

 It's easy to be an angel when no one ruffles your feathers.  Acting not reacting is the path to your personal liberation.
Look at it like this.

 

  Jim and Scott go out every morning for a walk and to buy the daily newspapers. When they arrive at the newspaper stand, Jim proceeds to the counter.

"Good morning, Jim says to the owner.
"What's so good about it," the owner grumbles and continues by barking, "What do you want today?"
"I'd like a N.Y. Times and the local paper please", says Jim.
The owner throws the papers down, grabs the cash and walks gruffly away.

 

Jim goes back to walking with Scott.
"What is wrong with that guy? Scott says incredulously.
Doesn't that bother you?"
Jim turns to Scott and says the following,
"His behavior is unfortunate but I won't allow another person to decide for me how I am going to feel for the rest of the day.
His behavior is his problem, when I react to it, it's becomes my problem."    

 

This simple story illustrates clearly how not to be used and enslaved by another persons emotionally neurotic behavior.

If they want to live in hell, that's their choice.

 

BE THANKFUL FOR YOUR TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS,
Instead of seeing them as bad luck and suffering,
see them as you taking the warrior's path this lifetime.
In your Sacred Contract,
you chose an all powerful path.

A challenging, intense road,   

so that you could evolve as fast as humanly possible.  

Like a spiritual warrior. 

Whenever you face adversity like a master soul,

and take the high road, 

you are a spiritual warrior 

SEE YOURSELF FROM THIS DAY ON AS A SPIRITUAL WARRIOR.  

 

Thich Nhat Hanh says,  

"We are here to awaken from the illusion of our separateness."

 

"The offering up or cleaning up ego stuff is called purification. Purification is the act of letting go. This is done out of discriminative awareness. That is, you understand that you are an entity passing through a life in which the entire drama is an offering for your awakening. You see that the life experience is a vehicle for becoming conscious, for becoming liberated. And you understand ultimately that's what you are doing here."
Dr. Richard Alpert, a.k.a. Ram Dass 

 

Developing emotional clarity is the process of getting off the pendulum of sensation, of reaction.  

Happy.....sad.....happy.....sad.

The ups and downs of an emotional roller coaster life.
When the outside world decides for us how we feel,
we are a slave.

Sai Baba says,
"In praise and blame, always the same."

So the next time you see yourself reacting, are negative, whining,
throwing a temper tantrum, pouting, giving the silent treatment

or even with-holding your love,
remember your lower self,
your dark side is in control. 


It's an emotional immaturity that has its basis in fear.
And for the record...
conditional love, love that is withheld until specific demands are met,
 is not love at all, it's more like commerce or an arranged barter relationship.

ONE MORE VERY IMPORTANT FACT...

THE LESSON KEEPS COMING AROUND UNTIL YOU GET THE LESSON!

 

        

Being firm, holding your center and learning how not to play victim is the Master's Path. It certainly beats being dragged through the emotional meat grinder, day in and day out.

As you strengthen your mind, you'll cut through life's melodrama,
slice the darkness with your higher resolve,
put your power behind your heart and mind
and create a force.
This force can change your world and the world around you.
DO IT!

Low Back: Why Surgery May Not Be the Best Choice

by Peter A. Fields, MD, DC

 

"The rate of back surgery in the United States is at least 40% higher than in any other country and is more than 5 times that in England and Scotland. Back surgery rates increased almost linearly with the per-capita supply of orthopedic and neurosurgeons. Research suggests that of the 500,000-plus disc surgeries that are performed annually (a significant increase of late), as manyas 90% might be unnecessary and ineefective. A US medical professor notes: It seems implausible that the number of patients with the most complex spinal pathology (has) increased 15-fold in just six years" and mentions that one strong motivation includes "financial incentives involving both surgeons and hospital."  

 

"Studies show that at best 50% will get relief (this may be all or partial) from back surgery, 25% will stay the same and 25% will get worse."

"Every year there are 50,000 documented cases of failed low back surgery syndrome." 

 

 

SEATTLE SEAHAWKS MEDITATE

 

Offensive tackle

Russell Okung raves about the mandatory meditation program his coach Pete Carroll instituted. "Meditation is as important as lifting weights and being out here on the field for practice," Okung said. "It's about quieting your mind and getting into certain states where everything outside of you doesn't matter in that moment. There are so many things telling you that you can't do something, but you take those thoughts captive, take power over them and change them."

 

 

 

As reported by Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine  

Fish Oil Does Not Improve Heart Health 

Two recent articles  

"Supplementing with omega-3 fatty acids does not improve heart heart, according to a new study published in the

New England Journal of Medicine.

. Researchers analyzed data from 12,513 men and women from the Risk and Prevention Study in Italy. After an average follow-up of five years, patients taking the omega-3 supplements did not reduce their risk of death or hospitalization from heart disease, compared with those who took placebo. These findings support  two recent reviews published in 2012."

 Dr. Greger is a nutrition oriented physician that also weighed in on this fish oil is scam discussion. This is what he wrote and here's the link to his video  on the subject. So much for fish oil... 

 

"This whole thing started several decades ago when it was reported that Eskimos seldom died of heart disease, and that they ate plenty of cold water fish. So why did the Eskimos not suffer many heart attacks when they ate an almost totally carnivore diet? Because they died early from other diseases before they could develop heart disease. Turns out that Eskimos had the shortest life expectancy of any group in North America, often suffering from premature old age or dying from brain hemorrhage from excessive omega-3s making their blood too thin. They also got plenty of nosebleeds. Another group, the Masai in Africa, who don't get much heart disease, are a big meat eaters and they die at the ripe old age of 43 on average, the lowest life expectancy of any people group in the world. We have no nutritional requirement for the EPA or DHA, the long preformed omega-3 fatty acids found in fish; we do however have a nutritional requirement for ALA, the omega-3 fatty acid found widely distributed in plant foods."
