Yeah, you've completely lost me on this one PL.
Sunday's post about "The World's Most Unusual Therapist" was very fascinating, and I'm totally getting where you're going with that. I totally get that whole, work on yourself to make other people better. It makes a lot of sense even on a basic biological/social level. If you make yourself stronger physically, then the whole tribe benefits from your abilities. But I can't help thinking that Dr. Len's ultimate example of "riding the wave", as it were, is pretty antithetical to your "ass kicking" methodology that you've talked about many, many times on this blog. Haven't you argued that "kicking ass", as it were, was a means for people to find the truth about themselves in a not-so-sugar-coated way so that they can be empowered to help themselves? I'm a bit lost as to how both philosophies can co-exist. In Dr. Len's methodology "ass kicking" wasn't really on the agenda. In fact, from what you posted, it looks like he didn't even talk to his patients, or even talk about his patients, or was ever even in the same room with them. They would have no idea in the physical 3 dimensional world what he thought of them or maybe even that he even existed!
It appears to me as though both methods are in contradiction with each other. Is there a compromise here? Does one ultimately trump the other? Are you now subscribing to Dr. Len's methodology and therefore resigning yourself to the fact that your past "ass kickings" were all just for "fun"? Or is there still something to be said for a good "ass kicking" that perhaps Dr. Len just doesn't get?
I hope I'm not oversimplifying things, but I also hope you can see my confusion.
I love the fact that you give yourself - and everyone else - the gift of reflecting deeply on things, L56. Thank you!
Yes, what I was trying to say in one sense is that 4D does indeed "trump" 3D, but going 3D in response to 3D is, or can be, "fun." What I actually said was that "commenting on this physical/linear level of creation from a physical/linear perspective" is "an interesting, and I must admit, stimulating exercise."
Perhaps another way of saying this is that healing oneself as the method to heal others is the most powerful and efficient way to go about healing - the 4th Dimensional approach. Does that invalidate the 3-dimensional approaches, including "kicking ass?" Only if you're thinking three-dimensionally!
We are in the process collectively of evolving from a three-dimensional, linear perspective to a non-linear multi-dimensional perspective, but that doesn't mean that the experiment in 3D was "wrong" or invalid. It was that experiment, that experience. Now, we're sort of at a been there, done that place with hard-core dualistic thinking, so we're shifting.
Very stimulating, eh?
