It is not really the events or the motives of my neighbours that are important here. This is all about psychological and spiritual growth on my part, training the mind and learning to deal with negative situations by turning within and tapping into one’s inner resources (as opposed to caving in or falling down a black hole). It is also about clearing tension, coping, developing and drawing on inner strength (and compassion) and winning through Light, love and true power as a being of divinely majestic worth rather than yielding to fear, violence, insanity or depression.
"If life feels like an emotional roller coaster, become the observer of how you feel. Develop the practice of naming your feelings. When you can name your feeling, it will be easier to tame. Once you know what it is, you can be more objective, and from a place of more sanity, do some inquiry to determine underlying factors. You can inquire within, for example, to discover whether what you are feeling is triggered by another person, the world in general, or by your own storehouse of unhappy memories. Knowing the source and becoming more neutral, it will be easier for you to avoid acting on emotions. In this way, you can avoid creating harm to others and yourself." - The Council of 12 (channelled through Selacia, 'Navigating the Eclipse Cycle With Skilful Means,' 7 July 2009, www.spiritlibrary.com/selacia/navigating‑the‑eclipse‑cycle‑with‑skillful‑means).
"Life is thickly sown with thorns, and I know no other remedy than to pass quickly through them. The longer we dwell on our misfortunes, the greater is their power to harm us." - Voltaire.
make your victim my head
you never ever believed in me
I am your tourniquet
The Man From Another Place (Michael J. Anderson): [Talking backwards; subtitled] When you see me again, it won't be me.
[Steps on an insect on the floor]
The Man From Another Place: This is the waiting room. Would you like some coffee? Some of your friends are here.
[Laura Palmer appears and sits beside the dwarf]
Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee): Hello, Agent Cooper.
[Laura winks and snaps her fingers backwards]
Laura Palmer: I'll see you again in 25 years. Meanwhile...
At first, I thought, ‘No! It can’t be! She couldn’t have put that there on my account! What? As if she believes that the device I had set up was somehow designed to vex her?’ Maybe she was paranoid. Perhaps she just used the idea of placing something in the hall as a counterpart to my Jolly Roger which is still flying merrily in the back garden; that is, she got the idea after feeling slightly daunted for a second or two at my device. It satisfies her ego that she is doing something to avenge her hurt pride or whatever even if it has no real effect, which it doesn’t, except that it amuses me very slightly that someone could be that dumb! By the way, I have since discovered a Jolly Roger flag flying high in an allotment only a few miles away on a main road for all to see, which I found most intriguing.
