First of all I know when you start your post off to me with; “Well my
dear Eddie…” I’m in real trouble.
Ok, my warning to Sally about the strawberries was straight out of my
False-Personality/Rebel/Judge. Basically because I have so little Real
Personality developed as of yet in my life. But to stay with the way
we express it here out of Personality rather than Essence. I thought
about it as soon as I had posted it (not so much before or in time to
stop). My warning was specifically in regard to Nyland. And by using
it the way I did I perverted what was meant as a beautiful analogy.
And when I say I thought about it, I only thought about how it might
sting Sally, and then simply let it go because I was pretty sure it
would not offend her. But I did question even that, and had been
considering if I should apologize to her for it. I was relieved to see
her post in confirmation at any rate.
But where I was really “acting out” my Rebel/Judge, is in the fact
that I probably had no conscious consideration for you Coach, or Joe
(or who ever was opining on Nyland’s work to begin with). On the
contrary I was poised ready to spank/punish any one that might pipe in
on Nyland’s behalf. I judged Nyland’s work (sight unseen) as unworthy
to be mentioned in the same arena as Nicoll’s. Although I might be
right, heh, heh, the way I did it was insensitive, and a potentially
hurtful/damaging way to go about it. I’m certainly no Idries Shah. Not
an excuse, simply a statement of fact.
I want to try and make the time this weekend to comment on your
response to my own experience with, what seems to me to be
my ‘somewhat’ changed Believer patterns. But honestly this point seems
somewhat finite in comparison to so many “issues” I tend to ponder
over all; or perhaps better stated as, “should ‘be’ pondering more
