I Am Better Than This
What you should do when you finally realize that you need, can and are willing to make improvements to yourself and your spiritual outlook.
First let’s take a look at what possibilities are out there. There is surgery or medical intervention and medications. Of course there are aerobics and weight training as well. There are schools that will help you improve your understanding about given subjects. There are schools that will help retrain your skills. There is mental training or classes that teach you how to improve your thinking. There is also religion to help you get your spiritual life and ideals in order.
Last and not least there is hypnosis which is thought to be especially useful for dealing with difficult emotional and mental problems. This last thought to be so powerful that a great many fear it. The greatest of these fears is that of misuse and abuse. It was thought that the wielder had such power as to undermine ones own self control and be made to do some foolish act or even make someone sufficiently complaisant to commit a crime or sexual act.
It is well known that propaganda is similar to political hypnosis and everyone knows that advertising uses subliminal suggestions as a common practice (and you wondered why you are buying a certain brand without even thinking about it). Also the military in its training of its solders used a type of brain washing similar to that used in interrogation.
You are assailed from all sides by brainwashing, subliminal messaging and autosuggestion by the advertising of those companies that produce the very food you eat, to your own government. You are controlled and manipulated and the winner gets your loyalty and your money. You are told what to ware and what to think. You are told how to think and what to look at and where to look at it. Even those who tell you what to do are under the same influence their own selves. No one is beyond the reach of all the hypno-projected-suggestions that permeate the sounds you hear, the images you see and even the thoughts you think.
For instance when was the last time you had a good laugh, I do not mean a chuckle but a real deep down belly roar? Are you really happy? What do you think will make you happy? Money? Who told you to think that money will solve all of your problems? Who do you think, advertising? Buy this or buy that and you will be happier. But you have bought all of the this’ and all of the that’s’ and you are still not a bit happier and maybe even just a little bit in debt?
Personally I would re-invent myself and use self-hypnosis to establish it with a more logical pattern of thought. Ah, but if were only that simple. If one wishes to construct something it would be wise to lay down a stable foundation first. Also it would be wise to use quality components.
Quality components abound and they have been used to construct some sort of a free thinking mind that is immune to mass hysteria even as a computer is immune to viruses. This mind should embody all of the true values and virtues like quality programming with a back-up system (which human minds are so sorely lacking). There are qualities like love and mercy and let us not forget that every one is different and we still have to live with each other and last but not least ourselves.
I have played this tune with many variations on the theme and there is only so much that can be done even with this tool but also do not have any misgivings the power of the mind will be only limited by the imagination of its wielder(s). Maybe you can see this but here’s something else for you to consider. By implementing a dedication to humanitarian values and altruistic ideals one then acquires the durable building materials without which your personal construction will be weak and lack integrity. This may mean breaking with some detrimental previous commitments for sanity’s sake and for your own good. Still responsibility is an admirable quality but being responsible for unjust actions and or activities be they legal or not is not a position that benefits anyone but a despot. Be aware of your surroundings and your position in them.
Now, just as physical exercise will improve your physical abilities so too will the exercise of responsibility and competence improve the quality of your spirit (which you can not live without by the way). This is the basics and will require the most effort, but that is the foundation and as foundations go it must be level and true in order to stand the tests of time.
A life is built not on good memories or a house or even a family but on stability. Stability of mind and spirit and stability of emotions. The subtle sameness and complacency gives life stability. This is also why people prefer to resist change.
You have it in your power to reconstruct and maintain your living mind and this is why I suggest re-orientating of your personal mentality by adjusting the basics so that they can be lived, not just believed in or on. You must be able to live your life by the values and ideals that you hold most dear. They mean nothing if they do not stand up under stress or challenges. Just as a foundation must be able to handle the load of the structure you are building, your ideals must be livable. There is a bonus once you have developed a working mental and emotional foundation (not just one that occurred by chance) you will have the added value of stability from storms of derision and strife from those who lack the values and ideals you have cultivated.
Next you should to re-evaluate yourself on what you will accept for yourself and what you will not. Do not concern yourself about what others do or do not do because they will answer to their self for their lack of ambition. I suggest that you consider realigning your personal motivations but to do that you first need to address your goals. At this point I suggest simple ones until you get better acquainted with what you can and can not do with your personal hypnosis suggestions.
Self hypnosis is simply a tool that one can use to retrain the mind. Especially a mind that lacks prior training or poor training. Learn to use it on yourself. Use it to free yourself and to retrain your mind and to think more clearly. Reduce as many of your emotional hang-ups as possible these can cripple you in many ways but be careful not to loose the proper priorities like good values and ideals least you turn yourself into a oppressor of others.
Before you start you should access what aspects of yourself if enhanced would markedly benefit you and your life. A sample list might include improved memory, posture and a more cheerful personality. While these all together sounds like a tall order you might find that some improvements in one area may also automatically correct deficiencies in others.
Now the ‘How To’ of self hypnosis: You can find this information on many internet sites. We can not recommend any one over any other at this time so use good judgment.
 I will point out that prescribed drugs can be of use only if you really need them. We do not suggest or encourage anyone to use recreational drugs however if you have used them you can rise above their delusional influence freeing yourself of your need of them.
2. Definitions of Worshipers
Those who worship sex are called pagans.
Those who worship money are called greedy
Those who worship power are called ruthless
Those who worship themselves are called self-righteous
Those who worship aggression and brutality are called savages
Those who worship knowledge are called intellectuals
Those who worship truth and life are called realists
Those who worship The SON of GOD are called Saved
Consider what you would like to do to the evilest person that ever lived than consider that as what had to be done to Christ to justify His death as payment for your most hennas of sins. This is your judgment and it has been paid. Don’t throw it away, you may find that you need such a friend that cares about your salvation this much.
No greater love hath any man than this that a man lay down his life for a friend.
3.Anger and Hatred
Once I had a dog and I really liked this dog. He was a husky cross. He was not full bred Husky so he could not pull a dog sled efficiently with a team, so the owners gave him away. He used to pull a bale of hay through the snow on a small sled to feed my goat in Alaska. You could tell that he really liked do it, it was a type of fun for him.
The people’s kids who had him before me were mean to him while he was a pup so that he disliked humans. Anyway long story short he had a habit of running off and visiting my neighbor’s female dog. My neighbor complained about it and said that if it happens again he would shoot him.
After one particular incident I chastised him and his dislike turned to hatred. I had to put him down for fear that he would bite someone. This made me wonder what if humans were similar in making excuses for turning on each other after a series of abuses during their formative years.
I know that I suffered some abuses during my childhood and that I have a slight mistrust for people in general but I am not sure that these are connected. But when someone abuses a person as might happen in say the military or in a prison, that person could come out more aggressive than he or she went in.
I know that one question was raised concerning the incarceration of a mild criminal with major offenders making the mild offender more hardened but is it really due to the other prisoners or the management or both? Many psychologists believe that it is a choice made by the offender but just suppose it is more the result of total immersion in a viscous environment and a defensive mechanism? Also for some poor reach a breaking point because of frustration and turn to a quicker way to acquire financial gain.
I personally believe that you can push a person only so far than there is a safety mechanism in the psyche that snaps back. If we are creating a more vicious strain of harden criminals simply because we push farther than they are capable of handling. Whether it be parents, the drill sergeant or the school bully or cell mate or guard or abusive father or husband or wife, sooner or later something has to give.
Some turn inward and “suffer in silence”. They do not reciprocate but their inner unresolved issues clouds their perspective causing them further difficulties. It may seem silly but there is a simple solution that transcends all of their ills and that is forgiveness.
With this they can let go of their anger and hostility or unburden their inner suffering and get on with their lives. While it is difficult to point to these individuals that their world would be a better place if they forgive their transgressors it is fairly simple for anyone reading this to say to themselves, “I will try this for myself.”.
Simply stated by the simple act of forgiving one can “let go” of their burden of anger and frustration freeing their hearts and minds and even their spirits of this mental bondage in one fail swoop. Their release will be felt almost immediately and while this is not the ‘cure all’ it does however give back some part of one’s mental resources for other uses which upon observation we all could decidedly use.
4. It Isn’t Her Fault
It isn’t a question of whether of not you are ‘turned on’ by your woman or what she does but instead it is what you are doing yourself that diminishes the urgency of your sex drive that leaves you with low motivation. This is wholly your own fault not hers, unless it is that she is a complete turn off than I would wonder why you got involved with her in the first place.
No, it is your own fault and what ever you are doing on the side or in-between your intimate sessions with her is what is diminishing your sex drive. Yes, you can alter this with pills but that is only a temporary solution and in the long run once your system builds up a resistance to the pills you are going to be right back where you started from and you won’t be able to correct it from there. So blaming her won’t help. Neither would be going to a public place and engaging in sexual play on the sly. Like drugs you will keep seeking greater and greater thrills just to get you off but your system will only respond up to a point and taking it to the next level only increases the risk of running afoul of indecent behavior. So too porn is similar in that it will only stimulate to a point then you must seek greater thrills or it’s effectiveness will slowly slip away.
The solution is simple, if the food you are eating has lost its savor you simply stop eating until you are hungry again (this also works for dieting). So stop doing what you are doing on the side and wait until you are driven to the point where you can not think straight, than you will find that no matter what she does you will still find that release.
Another thing that helps is making your fantasies more realistic. This helps on two levels. One, living your fantasy only increases the value of your relationship and second this kind of fantasy can’t haunt you later.
