It’s important to learn the vocabulary that will support and enhance your character study for your new role in The Magical Theatre, so I suggest you make an effort to add new definitions to your point of view each week.

Free Will: What happens when we are free to control our own attention and are no longer in reaction. From this perspective we are at choice and are free to take conscious action.

Freedom and its Price: Priceless. Freedom is not about personal space, money or relationships that bind. It is also not freedom from the Divine or freedom from love. In one way or another, we are bound to this life. True freedom is the ability to allow our emotions to flow through us and to make intentional choices based on present time. To be free we must embrace our fearless connection with the Divine Mystery and love; or else we get the default, which is other than love. There is not a neutral choice that says we can be free and not choose to align with the Divine Mystery. It is not possible to find freedom and leave The Divine out of the mix.

Gratitude: The choice to see the Divine Mystery in all things. We should have endless gratitude for not getting all those things we have thought we wanted as those desires have often been motivated by the promptings of our fearful bleiefs. Often the way we get what we need is not to get what we want.

Greed: Attachment to more than you need. Greed is self-perpetuating as it creates a sense of greater need because of its hollow fulfillment.

Guilt: We feel guilty when we make ourselves wrong for our choices or even thoughts of making choices. We say someone can make us feel guilty, but no one else can make us feel anything. Guilt is one of the largest wastes of energy we perpetrate upon ourselves. It arise from this idea that somehow (and we’re not even remotely sure how) we’re intrinsically wrong. At the root of it all --AGAIN-- is the omnipresent Lie of Our Imperfection that arose from our socialization.

Happiness: The quality of emotion we feel when we have accepted yourself as we are and there is a consistent characteristic of peaceful acceptance and love pervading our emotions. This love is impersonal and doesn’t depend on meeting certain outside criteria to exist. This can be confusing because we have often associated our feelings of happiness with control and accumulation. This is a gross inaccuracy. That particular aberration of happiness could be described more precisely as the relief that occurs because we feel safe when the illusion of the Magical Theatre of our life momentarily allows us to believe our needs are being met from the outside.

It’s important to learn the vocabulary that will support and enhance your character study for your new role in The Magical Theatre, so I suggest you make an effort to add new definitions to your point of view each week.

Drama: What occurs when someone or something is not how or what we (or them) want it to be and we (or them) lose our awareness and go into a reaction.

Empowered Victim: A more masterful victim, but still confused. A person motivated by old lingering wounds to use newly acquired power to look important. A newfound voice that may be speaking about ideas that are closer to the truth but with veiled judgment and without true acceptance or love.

Experience: What arises from life when we do not get the outcome we are attached to.

Fear of the unknown: No such thing. You are afraid of re-experiencing something that you already know or think you know.

Fear, Irrational and Otherwise: A bear running toward you is a reasonable fear that arises when the body is in danger. Unless you have a past life as Goldilocks, it is not natural to worry (feel fear) that a bear may appear any time you pass a grove of trees.

Fear: Contraction, anxiety, depletion, worry, envy, arrogance, disharmony, scarcity, anger, guilt and bitterness in action.

Forgiveness: Releasing another from being responsible for how we feel. When we forgive, we no longer poison ourselves each time we remember someone else’s perceived transgressions. This is not giving a seal of approval to the bad guys, rather it frees us from the mantle of our victimhood and the need to get even. At the very least, it offers the ability to go forward without carrying the burden or resentment. It is also important to forgive ourselves for innocently believing the lie of our imperfection.

It’s important to learn the vocabulary that will support and enhance your character study for your new role in The Magical Theatre, so I suggest you make an effort to add new definitions to your point of view each week.

Deal Breakers: There is much wisdom to gather on our journey to self-mastery. We can go in search of this understanding and select the path that goes to the right or the left and it won't matter appreciably if we are sincere and strive to be impeccable. We can meditate, dream or chant—or none of those things. We will each proceed through life with our own distinctive approach, however there are some specific obstacles we must each overcome where each of us has to get it. Getting it usually requires releasing a limiting habit or belief and acquiring a new understanding that is crucial for mastery. With new understanding comes wisdom and a boost to our current level of awareness. If we don’t surrender certain attitudes and actions, our progress is impeded and eventually our development is arrested. The attitudes we need to surrender to gain wisdom are deal breakers.

Denial System: A way we perpetuate our limited beliefs by turning a blind eye to circumstances that would call our beliefs into question. To keep our belief system in place and avoid feeling the pain of our fearful false beliefs- AKA wounds, we learn to lie to ourselves and present a contrived image to please others. If we are aware of our lying, and we usually aren’t, we learn to justify the lies, thereby avoiding scrutiny by our morals police. Our DS can also drape an invisibility cloak on a circumstance and that ostensibly makes it easier to handle by repressing what would be painful to experience. We become so practiced at denial that it occurs automatically and blocks us from seeing and feeling what is really going on. As a consequence, it blocks our ability to be in choice.

Detachment: The action of releasing our emotional attachment to the quality, outcome or beliefs of a situation, relationship or circumstance.

Discernment: The action of making a choice. (Judgment is the opinion you have about the choice you have made. Judgment is always present in reactionary choices.)

Divine Great Mystery: Mighty living force of the Creator. The Conscious, immortal, deathless aspect that animates our body seamlessly connecting us to all that is.

Dogma: The Rules that humans agree must be followed to know the Divine Mystery. These rules differ considerably from group to group. No one group has a corner on the market, and yet all of these groups offer their traditions as the Divine traditions. It would be wise to not confuse traditions of man with traditions of the Divine.
