29 On Appreciating Resistance

EXPERIENCE has taught us that it is perfectly understandable to appreciate how deeply ingrained are the ways our mind has been conditioned to avoid dealing with situations that have connections to our deeper lost hurts, pains, and memories.

This is particularly noticeable when we begin to examine how we resist going into those situations that appear to want to take us down memory lane, past any scary bits that have been hidden in the deeper, darker recesses of our minds.

Throughout Our Entire Lives
We Have Been Encouraged
To Do Anything We Can To Escape From
Rather Than To Explore Into
Investigate Our Unpleasantness.
