Combined Wisdom of a Couple Great Works

.The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield includes great detail on control dramas.  In his book, Mr. Redfield outlines the control dramas and they can be summarized as: The Intimidators - who steal energy from others by threatening them. The Interrogators who steal it by judging and questioning those around them.  The Aloof people who attract attention (and attempt to steal energy) for themselves by acting reserved or withdrawing from those around them. The Poor Me's who attempt to make us feel guilty and responsible for them. If you seek to appease any soul in an active state of performing a control drama, you will learn nothing but pain. Drawing from the wisdom of ACIM (A Course in Miracles), the goal for all involved is to transcend the control drama and stop manipulating others for energy and love. Giving love to all does not mean one offers one's self up as a human sacrifice. Giving love means: 1) you acknowledge the control drama comes from unhealed wounds within a person, 2) that you understand their manipulations and attacks have nothing to do with you at all and has to do with their attempt to transcend pain even through the creation of collateral damage (hurting you), 3) that you can forgive the harm they do to you as they are really only attempting to harm themselves (the attack upon you is an illusion - their premise is an illusion) and 4) that you rise above their battlefields where the blows cannot harm you and refuse to further engage in battle (forgive your brother/sister and forgive yourself...condemn them and condemn yourselves - e.g., counter attack). Know truly what you are contending with...know too, your limitations, know what is happening in a control drama, know the value of love and forgiveness and know that you do not have to engage in the battle and that engaging in the battle from the battlefield only causes more harm for the person mired in a control drama and creates much conflict and wasted energy for you.

It seems pretty simple but its darn hard to learn. Every soul is worthy of love and every soul is worthy of's just that it takes a long time sometimes for folks to gain the awareness enough to see.  Open your eyes and see the truth through the illusion so tightly weaved in the webs of manipulation.  Know that within your own body, you can feel this manipulation and stop it by refusing to engage in it.  If you draw your sword and engage in battle, you live out your own control drama and may miss an opportunity to transcend it.  If you love and forgive, you are carried out of the battlefield and can see only the truth of the matter. ~Blessings of higher love and understanding dear ones.
