1 – What do I believe from my childhood about –
Strength, perfection, gender, holiness, self-expression, parent, society, emotions, work, fun, moral, ethics, security, lack?
2 – What do I do to avoid feeling childhood beliefs?
Addictions and supporting beliefs “….does everyone understand the relationship between these belief systems now that are inside of you; and you as an adult going through your life? Can you see the relationship of how they’re affecting you? Yep. It’s very important you see the negative side of this because that will help you make the decision to make a different choice. See, if you believe that doing all of these things in this way that we’ve brought up is actually ‘good’ you’ll never make a different choice. But if you start seeing that every one of these things must be affecting you; your intellect; your decisions; the way you see the world; the way you see yourself; the way you see your environment; the way you see your family, your friends, your husband, your wife, your children, your work and all these other things are all defined by these things that come from your childhood, you’ll start to see that it’s no wonder we’ve got pretty messed up lives half the time. And then you’ll also go : Okay, if that is what is causing me to do what I’m doing now, imagine the life that you really want. How are you going to get there? By changing these – these have to change to get you to have a different life. We need to understand that emotionally – these have to change in order for us to actually have a different outcome. We need to change that relationship. If we don’t see that relationship it’s highly unlikely that we’ll start looking at our addictions, because we have no motivation to look at them. If you believe that you’re life’s all together right now and everything’s great and you’re very, very happy thank you very much, it’s highly unlikely that you’ll change your behaviour or any of your belief systems. But if you can see that the life is pretty messed up right now and there are lots of problems with it that you eventually let yourself connect to and you can see that then you’ll want to change some of these things; and when you want to change some of these things then you’ll want to look at what you do to avoid feeling these things. But for the majority of us, we don’t want to look at what we do to avoid, because we think all these things are true. In fact many of us hold onto them for dear life. Somebody can come along and say : Look that belief is actually false. And you argue with them; you’ll fight with them. Sometimes you’ll fight to the death on one of these things – most of the wars in history have been caused by one of these issues – being out of harmony with love. Most of the deaths in the world have been caused by these issues being imposed upon a group of people in society; so many people, in fact, that they can go to war with another group of people about them. So most wars are caused by a distortion of the truth about these issues. Just even the issue of strength causes wars – what is strength; what is perfection? causes wars. Historically there’s been wars between two different types of religious faiths because of their definition of perfection; or their definition of what makes you holy. So once we start seeing : Wow, the effects of these things all being childhood beliefs that are out of harmony with God’s definition of love. Once we start seeing it, we go : We need to change this; inside of myself I need to change this; I need to start doing something actively and urgently to change this, is the feeling we would have. We wouldn’t want to keep on accepting what we currently accept.” Jesus
