The World Is Against Me – Is That Really True?

Here is a thought provoking poem by Edgar A. Gest to ponder.

The World Is Against Me

“The world is against me,” he said with a sigh. “Somebody stops every scheme that I try. The world has me down and it’s keeping me there; I don’t get a chance. Oh, the world is unfair! When a fellow is poor then he can’t get a show; The world is determined to keep him down low.”

“What of Abe Lincoln? I asked. “Would you say That he was much richer than you are to-day? He hadn’t your chance of making his mark, And his outlook was often exceedingly dark; Yet he clung to his purpose with courage most grim And he got to the top. Was the world against him?

“What of Ben Franklin? I’ve oft heard it said That many a time he went hungry to bed. He started with nothing but courage to climb, But patiently struggled and waited his time. He dangled awhile from real poverty’s limb, Yet he got to the top. Was the world against him?

“I could name you a dozen, yes, hundreds, I guess Of poor boys who’ve patiently climbed to success; All boys who were down and who struggled alone, Who’d have thought themselves rich if your fortune They’d known; yet they rose in the world you’re so quick to condemn, And I’m asking you now, was the world against them?”

Hypnosis & The Law

Hypnosis and the law have been on shaky ground the past few years. Most of the problems stem from the use of testimony given under regressive hypnosis in several cases involving allegations of child molestation. Grown adults undergoing therapy in hypnosis and the law several instances that received a great deal of press at the time uncovered memories when hypnotized that they believed had been repressed, of trauma and sexual abuse suffered as children. In one case the father of the grown child was accused of being a sexual abuser. In another case a priest was the accused.

The problem that later arose was that through physical evidence both men were proven to be not guilty of the offenses with which they had been charged. Some legal experts believe that one of the problems is that hypnosis competency is not a matter of state licensure in most cases or of higher educational training. Many states are now demanding consistency in training and professional guidelines that they say will improve the overall practice of hypnosis. While standards of training may help, one of the primary difficulties in depending on so called repressed memories in court testimony is that many hypnosis practitioners don’t believe there are such things as repressed memories.

Many of them point out that those in a hypnotic state are susceptible to suggestion, and that the human imagination is particularly powerful. When these repressed memories are triggered, there is no proof that they are valid. Everyone has had many life experiences law and justice included untold hours of watching television dramas and reading books. Many experts believe that so called repressed memories are simply experiences created in the imagination of the hypnotized person. They may be incidents that never happened, or they may be combinations of dreams, illusions, and true experiences.

While still a source of valid controversy, it is doubtful that any competent judge would allow repressed memories obtained through regression therapy hypnosis to be used as legal testimony. For one thing, there are usually few ways to counter such testimony. Many things cannot be disproved that also cannot be proven and may not be true at all. Apparently in the case of many cases brought up in court using hypnosis, such was the case.

Installing Love on the Human Computer

Tech Support: Yes, how can I help you?

Customer: Well, after much consideration, I’ve decided to
install Love. Can you guide me through the process?

Tech Support: Yes. I can help you. Are you ready to proceed?

Customer: Well, I’m not very technical, but I think I’m ready. What do I do first?

Tech Support: The first step is to open your Heart. Have you located your Heart?

Customer: Yes, but there are several other programs running now. Is it okay to install Love while they are running?

Tech Support: What programs are running?

Customer: Let’s see, I have Past Hurt, Low Self-Esteem, Grudge and Resentment running right now.

Tech Support: No problem, Love will gradually erase Past Hurt from your current operating system. It may remain in your permanent memory but it will no longer disrupt other programs. Love will eventually override Low Self-Esteem with a module of its own called High Self-Esteem. However, you have to completely turn off Grudge and Resentment. Those programs prevent Love from being properly installed. Can you turn those off?

Customer: I don’t know how to turn them off. Can you tell me
how?

Tech Support: With pleasure. Go to your start menu and invoke Forgiveness. Do this as many times as necessary until Grudge and Resentment have been
completely erased.

Customer: Okay, done! Love has started installing itself. Is that normal?

Tech Support: Yes, but remember that you have only the base program. You need to begin connecting to other Hearts in order to get the upgrades.

Customer: Oops! I have an error message already. It says, “Error – Program not run on external components.” What should I do?

Tech Support: Don’t worry. It means that the Love program is set up to run on Internal Hearts, but has not yet been run on your Heart. In non-technical terms, it simply means you have to Love yourself before you can Love others.

Customer: So, what should I do?

Tech Support: Pull down Self-Acceptance; then click on the following files: Forgive-Self; Realize Your Worth; and Acknowledge your Limitations.

Customer: Okay, done.

Tech Support: Now, copy them to the “My Heart” directory. The system will overwrite any conflicting files and begin patching faulty programming.

Also, you need to delete Verbose Self-Criticism from all directories and empty your Recycle Bin to make sure it is completely gone and never comes back.

Customer: Got it. Hey! My heart is filling up with new files. Smile is playing on my monitor and Peace and Contentment are copying themselves all over My Heart. Is this normal?

Tech Support: Sometimes. For others it takes awhile, but eventually everything gets it at the proper time. So Love is installed and running.
One more thing before we hang up. Love is Freeware. Be sure to give it and its various modules to everyone you meet. They will in turn share it with others and return some cool modules back to you.

Customer: Thank you.

Tech Support: You’re welcome, anytime.
