The intended Profile
“It's a dark, cool, quiet place. A basement in your soul. And that place can sometimes be dangerous to the human mind. I can open the door and enter that darkness, but I have to be very careful. I can find my story there. Then I bring that thing to the surface, into the real world. ” ― Haruki Murakami
Going in to the dark chamber of our soul alone or with the wrong witness it can be sometimes very dangerous, because sometimes we can kill ourselves, others or both, like James Holmes did and as many other mass shooters. We need a true enlightened witness like Alice Miller to help us navigate through the dark chambers of our soul, so we can face and feeling the true story and bring it to the surface safely without putting ourselves and others in danger with unconscious disastrous enactments. James Homes like many other mass shooters were under of psychiatric care, but obvious the doctors were not able to see clear how much trouble these young men were in and now sadly he lost the opportunity forever to break free from his childhood drama, now the prison guards playing the substitute parents figures and he in the role of the child for eternity and the people he killed also will never have a chance to find true freedom. So many lives wasted.
Cheryl: Thanks for sharing so much, Sylvie. I've been wanting to add my own experience, but I've been conflicted about how much I want to share here. Your words, these and the ones above, bring greater clarity and understanding, particularly the "prisoner in the cell" metaphor.
Sharon: Yes. Thank you, Sylvie.
Sylvie Imelda Shene: Really Phd, she wrote those words, that’s sad. She needs to figure out that she is the one that needs to give herself the love she never got from her own parents when she was a little girl and now, only her, can make up for this lost. Ashton Kutcher or anyone in the outside world can never make up for it.
Sylvie Imelda Shene: I know Sharon, it’s very sad that so few people get it. I too witness people constantly missing great opportunities at true liberation. Feeling the feelings of the child they once were in the right context is too difficult for most people, because for that they would have to stop idealizing their parents and question them, so unconsciously and compulsively they keep looking for scapegoats to blame.
Sharon: I have to admit. I can still fall into the blame game. The good news is that it happens far less and when I do I pull myself out more quickly.
