Key Lesson

We cannot be made into anything that we haven't first agreed to be made into; this means there can only be one reason why we find ourselves feeling afraid, angry, or anxious when suddenly thrown into some unwanted moment: we are turning to, and living from... the wrong maker.


How is it possible for a man or woman to be both prisoner and, without ever knowing it, his or her own prison maker at the same time?

Each time the me mind envisions some future event, it's actually trying to find a feeling of security for itself. But the only security this lower nature can ever know is imaginary. So it has to dream up one scene after another where somehow you'll come out a winner.

But, the more victories it conjures up in this way, the more fear it feels that it won't win the battles it just created. And the more agitated this low level of mind becomes from its own unconscious activity, the more it tries to settle itself with more mental movies. We can see the end of this painful picture without having to draw it ourselves. This psychological profile demonstrates what it means to be both prisoner and prison maker!

The free mind is always a witness to your whole mental and emotional experience, so it can't be made a slave of any hidden desire.
