“Extending back in time, people have been drawn to watch and participate in drama. Understood and used by playwrights and authors in all cultures of recorded history, and known in recent times as the triangle of disempowerment, drama triangle, or Karpman’s triangle, drama is a compelling but ineffective way of interacting with others that leads to relationship confusion, dysfunction and conflict. It is a pervasive source of suffering between individuals, groups, communities and nations. Psychotherapist Gregory Boyce’s book No More Drama shows us the external appearances of drama, the inner workings, why we participate, and most importantly, how to conduct ourselves so we live in what he calls the Drama Free Zone. His writing is enjoyable and easy to follow; his suggestions, very powerful. It is: A Practical Guide to Healthy Relationships.”

“Do you feel manipulated, controlled, or lied to? Are you the focus of intense, violent, and irrational rages? Do you feel as though you are constantly trying to avoid confrontation?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should remember this: It’s not your fault. And you’re not alone. In fact, the person you care about may have traits associated with borderline personality disorder (BPD), such as emotion dysregulation, impulsive behavior, unstable sense of self, and difficulty with interpersonal relationships. No matter how much you want to be there for your loved one, at times it can feel like you are walking on eggshells.”

“In each of us, Christ consciousness is waiting to be awakened. Christ consciousness is the awareness that behind outer appearance and form, all life is one and connected. As we enter this level of awareness, we gradually let go of our fear, our resistance, our need to control. We discover the reality of our divine essence, our soul. Life becomes less about struggling to survive, driven by the demands of the ego, and more about joy and creating from the heart.

Opening up to the voice of our soul involves taking a leap into the abyss: you are invited to rely on your inner guidance rather than the outer directions you are used to steering by. How do you let go of the worldly pressures and judgments that have become almost second nature? How do you know if you have truly connected with your soul? How do you deal with fear and trauma, which keeps you from surrendering?”
