HYPNOSIS OF DYING AND DEATH
you ever try to fix something—anything—and make a booboo? And then, instead of
standing back and looking at what a jerk you were, you got mad and tried harder
to make it work, only to make a bigger mess. And then what did you do? You
repeated the scene over again. Isn't that the story of your life?
ego thinks it knows a lot, but upon approaching life, family, business and
mechanical problems, you are shocked to discover your ignorance. We start out
in life thinking that we are something which we can never really be. We think
we have some sort of divine power to will things to happen, and when they
backfire and make us look silly, we are threatened. Angrily, we add will to
will and frustration to frustration as we keep trying to be that something we
frustration of resentment happens to be the emotional fuel of willfulness. So when
we get mad, our will is energized and projects to the person or thing we are
trying to make or mend.
part of you that wills things to happen is the flawed, sinful self that never
wants to face the truth of its sins, so it loses itself in the symptoms and
troubles it creates by reacting against them as if they were the cause. The
imperfect thing which evolves mocks your divinity; it challenges you to perfect
it and to evolve your perfection in the process.
brings me to the underlying principle of dying. Let me lead into it by
discussing the will aspect. Your will
inflicted upon others is a trespass into their minds which causes one of two
reactions: rebellion or conformity.
people conform to your will, you are encouraged to become more willful, and
something begins to work that is not supposed to. You pay for the glow of pride
in terms of guilt, frustration and contempt toward people who can't stand up to
you. You might even become afraid of your own success, afraid of the conflict
that comes from glorying in it, threatened by an easy life without the
challenges which your ego needs to grow and know its greatness.
leads to the egg-on-your-face part of applied will, that is, when it doesn't
work and it backfires. People with a strong will of their own may rebel against
you. And then pitching your will against theirs, and against obstacles which
you yourself have created, becomes a way of growing and forgetting what a jerk
you are becoming. Frustration is the reward of any effort of will, and that in
itself produces a never-ending, self-renewing supply of problems and symptoms
that challenges you to perfect your imperfect self.
