Too Invested in Lies and Illusions
Thank you for writing.
I understand you feeling devastated, but it’s the way it is!
Most people fall into a trap/illusion/bubble and then try to sell it to others.
I have learned that when people have a lot invested in these traps/illusions/bubbles/lies, etc. --- As he appears to be -- that he even wrote a book promoting these lies/illusions/traps/bubbles -- that is a huge investment --- that will not be easy for him to let go of -- unless something tragic happens and bursts their illusions/bubbles/traps/lies -- even when tragedy hits them -- still try to hold on to their illusions/bubbles/traps/lies, because it's too painful for them to face the truth that they deceived themselves and others and they rather die or destroy others than face this painful truth.
So he might resent my book, but you never know, maybe he will find the courage to question the 12 steps program, but I doubt.
Do what you feel like – it won’t hurt to send him my book -- if he doesn’t send it back and just throws it way, it’s okay, don’t worry about it, maybe will end up in someone's hands that really is ready to let go of all the lies and illusions and my book will be the support they have been waiting all of their lives, like I once was.
Thank you for sharing with me Pachelbel Canon in D Major - the original and best version in your lasts e-mail -- it was absolutely beautiful!
You said in your e-mail you are hiding. Hiding it’s all I like to do too NOW! If I didn’t have to work to keep a roof over my head I would never leave my little condo and deal with people.
I’m so happy and at peace when not around people! I savor every moment alone!
