Your Wake Up Call
Reality includes two ways to suffer. You can suffer from ‘exogenous events’ that manifest as ‘part of life,’ like the tornado that destroys your home, or that unexpected car accident that happened with no advance warning, or the discovery that someone you thought was a friend, isn’t on your side. The work I do, which I refer to as “The Recovery Process,” which we can abbreviate with the acronym, TRP, shifts the view you hold about everything and everyone, based on the discovery that truth exists and it is literally “stranger than fiction” because it includes fiction.
The goal of TRP is to assist you to shift from the view you currently defend as “the truth,” to the possibility that truth is vastly different from what you insist it is. The view you hold about everything and everyone depends on where you are with the truth. Truth, once recovered, can’t cancel the fact the tornado destroyed your home, but it will reconfigure the view you hold about all events, including the ones we insist are “devastating” Truth, once recovered, reveals that there is a huge discrepancy between what reality is in fact, and what we defend as “reality.”
The second form of suffering displays how much energy you bring to the fiction you are who you pretend to be. Truth reveals that who we are is a fixed fact, and it is against this fact that the vast majority of us defend the fiction we are who we pretend to be. The disparity between the truth of who we are and who we pretend to be results in suffering. The plot thickens when truth reveals that we use the suffering that stems from defending the fiction we can prove we are who we pretend to be, as part of how we keep the fiction in place we are who we insist we are.
The goal of TRP is to assist you to reconnect with the truth of who you are, so you can identify how you use suffering to defend the fiction you can prove you are who you pretend to be. This process asks you to consider that truth, which you dismiss as false, could be absolute, meaning always true. If truth is absolute, and almost everyone fills time trying to prove truth is relative, and that not even suffering will work to cancel the truth of who we are, then you are looking down the barrel of a monumental parody: everyone is who they are, displaying how they rely on suffering to defend who they insist they are.
Truth reveals why there is no one to be a victim, and why “The Victim Parody” occupies center stage in our reality. Truth, once recovered, supports the shift from ‘abject seriousness’ that goes with “The Victim Parody,’ to the truth of how you use suffering to defend the fiction you are a real victim. Truth reveals both the why and the how we do this. Truth reconnects you with the architecture of this parody which results in humor, insight, advanced awareness, and freedom to be who you are and can only be, in spite of your addiction to the parody you occupy, day in and day out. Upstream of this parody, you are awake because you are aligned with the truth. The shift is from the delusion of who you pretend to be, to the truth of who you are, and can only be. The shift is from the fiction you aren’t okay, to the truth there is no way to be ‘not okay.’ The seeing of this clearly often results in unbridled laughter.
At the core of this work lives humor. Since no one can be who they pretend to be, and almost everyone fills time with this project, how funny are we? Waking up reconnects you with the humor inherent in this parody, and this changes the view you hold about everyone and everything. Life is filled with moments that encourage the process of ‘waking up.’ Who knows, today could be the day of “Your Wake Up Call.”
