This video is a very long Caroline Myss lecture. This first one is pretty amazing. Her brother is subjected to psychiatric abuse. The whole lecture is 11 videos. She has a hard-core philosophy and as usual I understand her with my ability to translate people’s various “spiritual language” into my own understanding of my experience. I don’t need to believe all the words she uses precisely to hear the truth in them.
In any case, this story of her brother in this first video is exciting to me, because she has gotten the chance to see what happens to us survivors close up and personal in her brother. He was psychiatrically abused. Intensely. Watch all 11 videos if you’re moved to. The beginning of this video is a long intro which I skipped because I already know a lot about Caroline Myss. So do as you need to.
I just discovered that this video does not allow embedding so you need to click on it twice and go to youtube to watch it.
If you watch the next 10 videos I warn you she may offend. See if you can bare with her. It’s some really meaty stuff to think about even if you don’t agree with everything. I like that she makes me feel uncomfortable. She gets right up in our faces. She makes me squirm. And I love her though I often have to take her in small bits and I don’t accept all she says.
How’s this for an awesome quote in video 6:
The unforgiving are the reason there is war. Now I don’t care what level it’s at but if you have a bitter heart at the micro you have a bitter heart at the macro…
Forgiveness is the first mystical act. Without forgiveness a real healing cannot happen.
From video 9:
This is a work in progress: next year I may add or subtract from this. (what she is talking about in the lecture…she is still learning as are all of us!)
I’ve been sorta live blogging as I watch these videos. I watched the whole thing now which I hadn’t when I first posted this. It’s really great and I loved it.
