The psychologist, Carl Jung, described hidden part
of our psyche as "the shadow". It's the part that sometimes frightens
us with the things we don't know, or don't want to know about ourselves.
It is essentially our unconscious mind telling us what it wants. Sometimes it
comes in dreams, other times and a welling up of emotion.
I Just had some thoughts about this so-called "dark" side and how it
applies to learning mind control.
Some people are so oppressed that showing any interest in this shadow side
creates fear if for no better reason than it's what you were told not to do.
We all are likely to remember the voice of Darth Vader saying "Come to the
Dark Side, Luke!"
That shadow side exists and many, many, MANY people will tell you to destroy
it. To destroy your passions, wants, needs and desires. They will plead with us
to connect with something higher that we can only dream and guess about.
They offer us something greater without really being clear on what it is.
Their hope is that if we give up everything that makes us animals we will
become more Human, or perhaps we might even become Divine.
We can dream.
But do we dream at the cost of denying what we want right here and now?
In a society (family/relationship) that endevours to control and oppress in one
way or another sometimes the "shadow" side of us is the most healthy
and doing the forbidden, i.e., loving your shadow is the best thing that you
can do for yourself.
They present it like an either/or proposition. Should it be?
By embracing the fact that we are animals (prove to me you don't have a genetic
make up and I'll believe otherwise) and still reaching upwards perhaps we can
come to a middle and sensible ground.
See the game of life and politics, i.e. mind control, as part of the Big
Picture and one can walk Wide Awake with feet firmly planted on the ground and
still reaching upwards.
It's the best of both worlds.
Why would you want less?
