A very short course in heaven and hell

This Can't Happen Here

A very short course in spiritual psychology/neuro-linguistic reprogramming:

faith/peace/heaven: “whatever happens is what should happen”

grace: “whatever happens is what should happen… and I am grateful for whatever happens”

Hell and Back

hell/shame/trauma/distress/confusion: “the past should not have been how it was”    (anxiety, the fear of admitting the reality of the past, resisting the past, clinging to a particular idealism contrary to a traumatic reality)

blame/contempt/resentment/vilification: (stage 2 of hell) “the past should not have been how it was  …and it was their fault”
guilt/depression: (stage 3 of hell) “the past should not have been how it was  …and it was my fault”
 
redemption/repentance: “It was temporarily useful/adaptive at some point to say that the past should not have been how it was. That is what I should have said because that is what I did say.”
