Few experiences touch one more than the feeling and/or the actual experience of being abandoned. If FELT beneath the story/drama of it, it touches you in the core of all conditioning – ’unworthiness’. This is the prime influence that began with the original ‘fall of consciousness’. Everyone who is not yet Truly Free still feels the acute sting of ‘unworthiness’ in countless ways with abandonment at the top of the list of manifested ways to trigger this deep and painful aspect of the conditioning that defines the false self most call ‘me’.
When these moments arise such as a relationship break-up, the loss of a job or rejection by a friend, the sorrow felt can take one’s breath away. These are the moments to ‘dive’ beneath the story. There is never a moment when the Real YOU can be abandoned since you are ONE and ONE is always undivided … but knowing this intellectually does not quench the fire. No amount of mind-oriented therapy can do anything more than shift the influence of conditioning to a different story. Only the ‘desolation’ of the condiioning that underpins every trigger reveals the ONE SELF You Are and the Real Freedom IT engenders.
