Really “competent” Psychotherapy is quite rarely experienced today, regardless how much one pays for treatment. And the problem in acquiring competent help is that those who are licensed by some state agency to perform Psychotherapy… have no idea what Psychotherapy is? And what they have been taught has nothing at all to do with the MIND of Man.
The MIND of MAN, by the way, comprises two Esoteric energy bodies, neither of which can be perceived by the brain. The word Esoteric is just another word for “invisible”. And although modern mental health avoids, ignores, and pretends the MIND doesn’t actually exist, the fact is… every mental conflict every human being experiences is due to a conflict “Within” the MIND of a person. Your MIND “is” the psychological operation going on “Within” you, which is impossible to discover or experience by use of your brain. And your MIND can even cause your brain to think precisely what your MIND wants it to think via a process of the MIND I refer to as “DM=SI”.
DM=SI refers to Defense Mechanism equals Subtle Insanity. And this super subtle process operates by feeding Delusional Thinking, or “D-Think” to the Left-Hemisphere of your brain. And a part of this “process” involves an aspect of ones Spiritual dimension [the Attn Aspect of ones Apapsyche] being used by ones MIND to convert MIND-level emotion into brain-level words and terms. I refer to this as Delusional Thinking.
Modern mental health is strictly an exercise in Intellectualism… which means stuffing the brain full of information that is 75% disinformation [based entirely on intellectual speculation], and 25% memorizing labels [that have a host of obvious symptoms attached to them], and these ‘labels’ with the symptoms attached to them are said to be your problem, and since they are not actually “the problem”– but only symptoms of the problem, you can spend years in therapy, and the only thing that changes is your bank account.
Unfortunately, those who pay for the education and training are told that what they are learning is all there is to “KNOW”! And these people taking the “training” have no way of knowing they are being deluded so that those in charge can maintain the Delusional Notion that what they are teaching has value. This sham began in the early 1900s with B.F. Skinner, who knew nothing about Psyhology but a great deal about how to use his intellect to get what he wanted… which was to be called a “psychologist”. He got his way, and America has suffered terribly.
Evans, Richard I. B.F. Skinner: The Man and His Ideas, New York: E.P.Dutton & Co, 1968.
“A child is influenced and changed as a biological entity by things that happen to him, but the notion that somehow or other the child of our past is still contained within us is a form of animism which serves no useful purpose in explaining present behavior.”
As I said, Skinner knew nothing about the Psychology of the ancient Greeks, and his training was in observing animals, and then speculating as to what might be causing them to behave as they did… in reaction to what he and his colleagues did to them?
To him, the behavioral actions of the animals “fit” nicely with his limitation of Intellectualism, or his limitation to use of his brain alone in attempting to comprehend Life? He was an Intelack type personality, and thus confined to his brain and thinking. In essence, this means that he lacked Intuition, Empathy, Empathetic Understanding, and psychic ability.
Did I mention that it is impossible to discover the MIND by use of the brain?
Well, it is impossible to intellectually discover the MIND. This is the reason those trained in modern mental health [or BS&bp], have been shamefully mislead to believe they are trained in “psychology”. Sadly, they know nothing about Psychology. And the more they “think,” the less they will KNOW.
mistakenly believe that since they are licensed, this must mean they have been taught properly, correctly, and that what they have been taught is all there is to understand?
OK, this is part 1. I will do part 2, right after dinner, and have it hopefully posted tonight.
Peace, Brother James.
