The Critical Moment

April 21st, 2010

When you are stuck in the fiction someone has a history, you scan their history to detect what happened to damage their self. A huge percentage of us live in the story we were damaged by ‘bad events’ in a ‘bad past.’ This is expressed as a ratio between our memory of ‘the good’ and ‘the bad,’ with a net gain conclusion about ‘our life.’ If ‘the‘bad’ is greater than ‘the good,’ time features us firmly entrenched in “The Victim Parody,” possibly for the duration of our life. We all know, without knowing exactly why or how, who is living the life of ‘the victim.’ The lower our awareness, the less we see what we are witnessing is a parody. As awareness expands, what seemed obscure, comes into focus as totally transparent. It shows up in the language we use to decorate the parody we occupy. It shows up in body language, posture, gait, and fluidity. It shows up in our narrative about the view we hold about life in general, and people in particular. Once we

lock into the victim parody, it runs perception, action, drama, feelings, and ‘choice,’ like who can we marry that will complement the drama we occupy.

Wei Wu Wei makes it very clear that ‘history’ is what mind is dreaming. What most of us refer to as “events” are actually content in the dream mind is dreaming. If mind is all there is, then history, in its entirety, is what mind dreamed, including huge events dreamers, posing as people, discuss as real historical events outside the dream mind is dreaming. The dream mind is dreaming is what “history” is, including the timeline we refer to as “history.” The shift from the fiction people have a history, to the truth dreamers have a ‘history’ in the dream, comes into focus slowly, usually with a sense of incredulity.
