PTSD is not normal but a factor of life
I recently read somewhere (and to save hearsay I will be honest and say I didn't save that link but I d have another to back up my claim), that
nearly everyone lives with a form of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, a disorder linked with chemical cravings and instability. May not be full blown
PTSD but when you look at the symptoms generally, it becomes clearer and does offer an explanation to these kinds of thought processes as suggested by
Read Symptoms Here
Here are the symptoms this topic suggests:
* feelings of detachment
* flashbacks to the traumatic event
* impaired functioning
* issues with family and other personal relationships
* memory issues
* nightmares and other sleep disturbances
* occupational instability
* trouble parenting or sustaining a marriage
Lets look at this list and think about it logically...
1. Feelings of detachment (think religions, search for meaning and feelings that something is missing, religions exploit this)
2. Flashbacks (Many of us have dream flashbacks to previous events of trauma, possible past lives, and what about the sub-conscious which uses replays
of events to make choices on how to react again)
3. Impaired functioning (how many of us lack motivation, nothing we can do, I can't do that or this, so on)
4. Issues (well no need to even explain, we all have that one person we cant talk too in the family and often we find it difficult to even open up
emotionally to one another)
5. Memory (what were you thinking or doing at 3, why do we block out parts of the childhood which are meant to be so joyous and free, why do we
struggle to retain or digest new information)
6. Sleep (terrors, nightmare, we all get them, and sleepless nights due to worrying about bills and Christmas presents this year!)
7. Occupation (how many of us hate our jobs, it is not what we were meant to be doing, no freedom, slavery, 9-5)
8. Marriage (back to relationships, but how many divorces are happening these days like it is normal, we all rushed in too soon that sort of thing)
From my observations, that is 8 out of 8 and could be applied in some way to everybody’s lives.
We all been taken away from the source of oneness, we have been given identities by culture and we feel like that is us and we are it. I am Richard
Bland, 24, male, white, 6ft 4, slightly overweight for my age, a bit of a geek, speaks his mind, so on and so on, BUT this is not me, this is what I
have been told I am.
I think to myself what could of be so traumatic in life to make us all slightly miffed and on edge... the only physical thing I can think of is money,
and in spirituality it would be the lack of balance and joy of being aware again of how interconnected we are to everything, ever. It is almost as if
I was born and now I am stuck in this physical domain not of my control, which is traumatic!
