Spiritual psychotherapy addresses our experience of anxiety and suffering as a wake up call to realize our full potential in the unlimited universe. In Do-It-Yourself Spiritual Psychotherapy, Dr. Carroll Wright draws on his 57 years of psychotherapy experience to guide us beyond our programmed, limited view of ourselves, the world and God. He shows us how our suffering arises from an assumption of separateness, lack and victimhood, and he charts a path to awareness of our true oneness, abundance and infinite goodness.
This book is an attempt to convince you that all of your so-called problems are just symptoms of one central problem: mistaken identity. It is my hope that if you read this book with an open mind and understand every sentence of it, your amnesia will disappear and you will “know” the Truth, and all of your so-called problems will have served their purpose and will be regarded just as old friends that pestered you until you listened.
A sense of powerlessness and meaninglessness seems to lie at the root of most of the personal, family and social disorders that plague us today. Empowerment and renewed meaning are essential ingredients in stress reduction, recovery and healing. In this book, I address what I consider to be the key element in dis-empowerment and re-empowerment: the story we tell ourselves.
This book is a transpersonal study of Judas, Jesus and Simon Peter as it applies to the understanding of our human-divine nature. Judas, Jesus and Simon Peter are symbolic of the universal human experience of trust-betrayal-transformation. The Judas experience is cyclical in that it moves from naïve unconscious trust into reactive tragic betrayal and cynical controlled repetition or into transformation. The critical choice then becomes whether the individual victim or betrayer becomes a cynic and a repeater of the cycle, or whether he or she sees the transpersonal choice of the Jesus’ experience of transformation, which is displayed in Simon Peter. The hidden purpose of the Judas (ego) experience of naïve trust and tragic betrayal is the divine transformation found in Simon Peter.
