Combined Wisdome of Two Great Works

The Celestine Prophecy, by James Redfield includes great detail on Control Dramas. The Control Dramas are four specific types of manipulations that wounded souls are engaged in to manipulate those around them for love.  The Control Dramas are summarized as:  The Intimidators - who steal energy from others by threatening them.  The Interrogators who steal energy by judging and questioning those around them. The Aloof people who manipulate those around them by manipulating them to attract attention (and energy) to themselves by acting reserved or withdrawing from those around them.  The Poor Me's who manipulate us by making 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) that touches on this same scenario but in the form of the illusion of the premise of attack in these souls and the illusions held by those on the receiving end, 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 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 battle. When you draw your sword and do battle with those in a state of an active control drama, you condemn yourself to remaining mired in the illusion.  When you forgive your brothers and sisters, you rise above the battlefield and forgive yourself and set yourself free.  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. ~Blessings of higher love and understanding dear ones.
