Our Recovery grows from the fertilised soil of our suffering.
We who are dissociated do not suffer. But this is only because we have abandoned our healing recovery process and numbed our emotional pain. Our Recovery grows from the fertilised soil of our suffering.
We who are dissociated call ourselves recovered. But this is only because we have they have no conception of what recovery really is. Our Recovery is the polar opposite of our dissociation.
We who are dissociated are not easily emotionally ruffled. But this is only because there lies a thick wall buffering our hidden, vulnerable self from the sharp and often honest edges of the real-world. The Stagers are much less protected, but have such a deep core of self-love that they can defend themselves.
We who are dissociated feel we have mastered forgiveness. But this is only because we completely deny the harm done to us – and the damage remaining. Stagers forgive spontaneously and without effort because we have fully embraced our damaged childhood and grieved every honest ounce of our misery.
We who are dissociated are extremely self-confident. But this is only because our self-deceptive armour is impenetrable to self-reflection. The self-confidence of the ten stages is fed by the universal spring of life.
We who are dissociated gravitate naturally toward leadership roles. But this is only because we are experts at leading ourselves away from our heart’s true course. Stagers lead right to the heart of the matter.
We who are dissociated have gone through hell to get to where we’re at. But we fail to realise that we’re still stuck right in hell. The Ten stages are the freedom of our emotional integration.
We who are dissociated feel we have found our true self. But this is only because we equate our true self with no self at all – or at best a false self or ego based on a distorted sense of consciousness. The Ten Stages are the true self linked with the conscious mind.
We who are dissociated consider ourselves paragons of spirituality. But this is only because our spirits are so buried behind walls of denial that we have no conception of what spirit is. The Ten Stages are the passionate spirit of the child held by the consciousness of the adult.
We who are dissociated are quite motivated, sophisticated, and convincing. But this is only because we perennially risk returning to suffering if we do not convince everyone of our lies. The Ten Stages brings a motivation to spread the truth that is everyone’s birthright.
We who are dissociated act decisively. But this is only because we cannot see or question our unconscious motivation. The Stager is also decisive, but only because he/she has no unconscious, because in his/her healing process it, like a now-useless appendage, it has dissolved.
Dissociation is contrary to RECOVERY.
