I don't have all the answers, but I have loads of questions . . .
Is good and evil projection or reality?
Is Satan a metaphor or is he real?
Is the Bible a metaphor or did it happen as told? I argue with my family about this.
Was Hitler Judas or a real monster.
Why does God manipulate us through projections.
When you learn the art of projecting are you allowed to do anything you want with it?
Is good and bad just a projection?
I know that ugly and beautiful are projections. To each his own . . .
Saints believe everyone is beautiful. Why is it so hard for me?
One of the oldest, and one of my favorite, sayings about projection: "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." I would have been a lot happier as a child if I believed that then the way I do now. My reality of rejection just did not match up with the old saying. It had to be wrong. But it isn't.
So much pain is just slipping away. Is this the cure to PTSD? If we let go of our obsession with wanting to know what is real and what is not.
Will somebody turn off my switch. I need a break . . .
