Every action in the physical universe can be found to be started by an action in the spiritual universe. To put it more plainly, nothing can happen in the physical universe spontaneously. There is always a decision and an intention that starts things happening in the physical universe.
When a harmful, destructive, or non-survival activity exists, it will be found that this activity was created to resolve a confusion.
A confusion is a set of misaligned intentions and actions for which there is no apparent rational solution. Any decision made to resolve the confusion without complete data can result in non-survival activity for some of the parties to the confusion.
The decision that is made persists in time and can form the basis for future actions. It was a solution to a vexing problem and this action gets used time and time again when similar problems are encountered even though the actions are considered non-survival actions.
We get acquainted with this string of non-survival actions because this person continues to do these actions lifetime after lifetime and is not able to stop doing them no matter how hard he tries.
In modern counseling there is a
realization that harmful and non-survival actions are always preceded
by earlier similar actions. Getting the afflicted person to view the
earlier similar actions can often bring some relief, especially if
the counselor can coax the person into discovering the decisions that
caused the earliest action discovered.
These decisions are often referred to as justifications as they justified the action taken as far as the person is concerned.
Getting the justification for an action can provide a great deal of relief for the person being helped, but the root cause of the series of non-survival activities has not yet been found unless the prior confusion is discovered. If a similar confusion is encountered, there is a distinct possibility that a new series of non-survival actions will result.
Discovering a basic confusion that starts a series of non-survival actions can change a being’s life.
Handling confusions by getting sufficient data before acting will create a successful future with potential for continual flourishing and prospering.
Finding the confusions that underlie non-survival activities is a big step in restoring sanity to life.
Learning to handle life’s confusions by getting sufficient data before acting will ensure that similar problems will not reoccur.
This data can be used to produce a pleasant and productive life. I have great certainty on that.
