Recovery and Rehabilitation
This an invitation to the online Open House tomorrow, August 30. All Registered Members will receive a copy of this message by email.
There is really good work going on here in the forums. You are learning much about the nature of the fear disease, the recovery from it, and the true nature of being human.
What is happening here is not only new, but rests on understandings that invalidate most of what we have assumed to be true about the mind and its troubles.
Carla and I have been paying close attention to what you are all doing here, and we have learned much from you already. The insights that have come to you and the manner in which you describe and understand them are new in the world of human suffering and our capacity to heal ourselves from the wounds of the fear disease.
What's really needed now is to bring your work and our collective understanding of what we are developing here together to the world at large.
We strongly encourage you to join us tomorrow for an online Open House this Sunday, August 30 from 2:00 to 3:30 pm PDT (21:00-22:30 UTC/GMT).
According to the World Health Organization at least 500,000,000 people in the world suffer from the misery of mental disorders. This amounts to one person in every four crippled to some degree by psychological misery. Most of those who seek help try a number of different methodologies that can include spirituality, psychotherapy, religion, medication, yoga, group therapy, and even such dangerous procedures as ECT (Electroconvulsive Therapy).
With most or all of these methods, an expert will offer guidance of one kind or another, and monitor progress or regress to help keep their patient on the right track. The expert will have a systematic regimen to offer, based on their experience with those who have come before, and he or she will be prepared to guide the patient based on that system.
The most common method people turn to other than mainstream religions is psychotherapy. There are many approaches to psychotherapy and a wide range of means for accomplishing them, but it seems that most hold the view that good aspects of the personality can be made to be dominant in the mind, and the bad aspects can be recognized and discarded in favor of the good ones.
But that premise is flawed. The assumption that there are good and bad aspects of the personality may be true enough, but psychotherapy goes further and seeks to heal the battered mind by encouraging the good and eliminating the bad. As many of us know from personal experience, that idea has not shown much in the way of lasting results.
That is not what we do here. The direct result of the initial act of looking is the immediate disintegration of the context of fear that is the root cause of all mental misery. This is true for all who look.
Once that is accomplished, a process of profound psychological transformation automatically begins. The process can be difficult, but in the end the personality heals, and life is seen clearly in its true nature. The act of looking creates a new foundation for the mind. And upon that new foundation, the personality recreates itself, now free of the shackles of fear.
There is no systematic, step-by-step regimen that can be offered to guide the reborn personality toward the sanity and intelligence that are the prize at the end of the road. Each person's journey will be unique.
The actual help that we offer here has nothing to do with telling you what your personality should or should not be. Instead, we give you an extremely simple practice to train yourself to be effective at making the moment-by-moment choices that, taken together, will shape your mind from now on. This is something that only you can do for yourself.
You will also learn to use the help of the many who have been working with this method for longer than you and can speak from their direct experience of sane human life.
But the best help you can get will come from questions that arise from your actual experience of the wild spectacle of life as a free human being. Our Open House meetings provide a central venue where the questions, the doubts and the fears that are unique to you can be heard and considered by the entire community for the benefit of all.
Please register and attend the online meeting tomorrow and help us see clearly what needs to be done now.
