There have been many who have lacked emotional control expressing great creativity. Our attitude towards ourselves is often as complicated as our attitude towards others – sometimes more so. then you will love your neighbor.

This does keep this one from identifying the ways this one does create and does near fulfillment of desires.. We see that this one has imaged for a long period of time that in order for this one to achieve what this one considers to be success this one does need to give up what this one wants and what this one is attached to. a much greater sense of flexibility.From an Intuitive Health Analysis We see within this one there is a fear of success. many of these are based upon partial images that have resulted from this one viewing effect rather than understanding cause. . We see that there is a need for this one to understand cause and we do see that although this one does have knowledge of this in this one’s thinking. this one focuses upon effects and how to produce effects rather than understanding cause and initiating from a point of cause. We see that as a result of this there are often times that this one’s emotions are very sensitive and this one does tend to cause this as a way of bringing attention to the needs of the self. Would suggest to this one that there is a need for this one to evaluate ideals that this one has formulated and held on to for a long period of time.

When one is centered around the environment.or limitations on the love you project. there is often a feeling of unworthiness. As such an emotional pattern develops. These people will advise that this attitude is an intensified selfishness. Is it really true that we spontaneously love ourselves? Evidence indicates this is a fallacy. this attitude forces one to return to the familiar feeling of unworthiness. The rational mind breaks down when it is not centered because it cannot feel dignified. When one makes a mistake or does something he considers incorrect. This stems from a set of requirements established for Self according to what is correct and incorrect. but there is one grave error in this estimation of reasoning man. something to be conquered. They believe the true goal of life is the rejection of Self through denial and a channeling of energy into altruistic service to others. Even in the midst of dignifying circumstances.

Few people are perfect. self-mutilation and suicide prove this to be true. look for the reason behind the guilt. This requires the use of the will. Self hate cultivated within these attitudes illustrate the form of aggression against Self that occurs daily in the lives of men and women. The work must be done individually. This drains the magnetic outpouring so that no charisma can be seen or felt by others. the greater the opportunity for error.

Would suggest to this one that this one can use the imagination more productively by first of all identifying the qualities or characteristics that this one believes to be appealing about these past experiences or people and then in the present creating situations. and it would also aid this one in drawing to the self other people who have similar needs or compatible needs who could aid this one to fulfill her desires.. We see within the emotional system that often times this one’s emotions are stimulated when there is something in the environment that stimulates this one to be aware of what this one believes to have been lost.

We see that often times this one experiences this as being out of control and when in the presence of other people does attempt to stifle this or repress this and that this does cause this one to be further out of control. . that this one identify the qualities that this one believes these other people to have that this one wants for herself and then for this one to develop these qualities in herself. Would suggest to this one that verbalizing the thoughts at these times would be of benefit as this would aid this one in the identification process of what this one thinks is missing. circumstances. Would suggest to this one that it is necessary for this one to create desires in the present for there is much that this one is attached to in the past and that this one thinks that this one has lost and will never again return to and this is in essence true. develop them and have these forever. Would suggest to this one that when there are other people who this one is attached to from the past. associations that will bring forth from within the self similar characteristics or qualities. For we see that this one cannot relive the past nor repeat the past and that in order to change the sadness this one does need to create joy and purpose in the present.. whether these people are present in the life or not this one can learn about these qualities.

We see that the source of this originates from different places.. they keep to themselves what is most important and dear to them.

To find true beauty, we must go deeper than the surface. There are three tales of Narcissus’ fate. Each afford insight into what constitutes the pitfalls of love and – for those with the eyes to see – its components which await the light of understanding from one who seeks wholeness. In the first telling, Narcissus spurns a young virgin who prays to Nemesis to take revenge on him by making him feel unrequited love. When he leans toward a pool of water to drink, he falls in love with his own reflection. He lingers there captivated with what he sees just as countless others have been captivated. Eventually, he realizes he is looking at himself, and having no way to act upon this love, he beats himself until the life force is drained from his body. His soul is sent to the darkest hell and the narcissus flower grows where he died. It is said that Narcissus gazes at his own image in the river Styx to this very day. The second telling, sees Narcissus with a twin sister as his hunting partner. He falls in love with her and when she dies, he pines for her, pretending that the reflection he sees in water is the sister he has lost. The third telling reveals how a young man named Ameinias loved Narcissus and Narcissus spurns him. Narcissus gives Ameinias a sword which he uses to kill himself, but not before praying to Nemesis that Narcissus will one day know the pain of unrequited love. Narcissus sees himself in the pool becoming hopelessly infatuated. Overcome by repentance, he uses his own sword to take his life. At first glance, Narcissus’ story describes the perils of misguided self-love. When we go beyond a superficial understanding of the story, a trinity of love in the breadth of human experience is revealed. In English, the word love is used in diverse ways;– I love my spouse, I love Shakespeare, I love chocolate. The same word is used to convey diverse meanings. In Greek, there are several words that can be used to “reflect” the intent of the communicator.

Eros is love based upon duality or sexual attractiveness.

This is the entire basis of Narcissus’ story,– the love that produces the need to understand what we cause others to experience. This love can be seen strongly in today’s advertising industry which often focuses on attraction (or repulsion) and uses seduction to influence.

Storge is the love between family members. Storge describes love involving
commitment, as displayed in the tale that makes Narcissus a twin, and manifests in today’s world as the unconditional love that says, no matter what you say or do, I’ll love you always and forever.

Philia is the word Greeks use when speaking of brotherly love, a love

seeking to understand relativity beyond bloodlines. This love helps us to see another’s need as Ameinias, the young man, saw Narcissus’ need to understand what he had caused others to experience. In today’s world, this is conditional love which seeks common ground for engagement, be it disaster relief efforts, political action committees, or even the phenomena of fans. The Greeks have a fourth word for love – agape. Agape is the highest form of love. This love lifts us beyond our own needs and desires, beyond narcissism, beyond humanity. In this experience of love, the personal self is transcended, one’s own needs are fulfilled through serving others. Anyone exhibiting charisma knows this level of loving. This is why those who dedicate themselves to public service – Princess Diana of Wales, Nelson Mandela of South Africa, Aung San us Kyi of Burma (now Myanmar) – manifest the lessons learned from Narcissus: the attractive power of influence, the commitment in unconditional love, and the compassion of conditional love.

Agape is the recognition of the Great Spirit within every living being. Its highest manifestation is found in the sentiment, “I love you just because you are.” Although people can be born with understandings favoring charisma, present

What can I do to remember my night dreams?” We see that this is one of the inner resources this one does not take advantage of and there would need to be a shift from the dependency upon external resources to an appreciation and respect for the inner as well. This one allows the mind to be cluttered often. the elimination of the clutter would aid greatly in the recalling of the subconscious experiences.. This one’s difficulty to the present point has been produced because this one was reticent to change in the conscious mind and was battling the Self in that regard and this has been a process of shutting out the inner Self. Therefore when this one begins to create the mental conditions necessary in the outer consciousness for there to be attunement to the inner. There is a tendency for this one to become lost in her own thoughts about life and in this to become innattentive.
