31. i am not the victim of the world i see.

candidly, this is an extremely difficult concept: i am not the victim of the world i “see”.

why is this concept difficult? because the world i “see” tells me that i am a victim of something, suffering at the hands of someone else’s bad choices and decisions.

for instance, the world i “see” tells me i am a victim of my parents.

for instance, the world i “see” tells me i am a victim of my boss.

for instance, the world i “see” tells me i am a victim of politics, and a victim of religion.

among a myriad of other ways the world i “see” tells me i am victim.

but, that is what the world has taught me to “see”.

therefore, the world has effectively taught me and convinced my thoughts that i am a victim, which means that when i “see” the world i “see” myself as a victim.

so some reflection time.

am i a victim?

in some circumstances, yes.

in most circumstances, no, absolutely not.

in some circumstances, i can be truly a victim, of circumstance, or of someone else’s actions.

but consider for a moment, the pejorative label that is placed often on religion. the pejorative label? cult.

that word alone colors how the world expects me to “see” religion. the world intentionally paints religion as a cult, and only intentionally paints certain organizations in such a pejorative way in order to color how the world wants me to “see” the world and my place within the world, yet the world intentionally refrains from painting certain organizations as a cult.

consider that there are instances that the word cult is used in a non-pejorative manner. for instance, some movies have a cult following.

that is not pejorative. a cult following simply indicates that there are specific individuals who have found an affection for a particular movie, and those individuals express their adoration for the movie(s).

for instance, consider how different the world would be painted if people who like science fiction were told they were part of a cult.

for instance, consider how different the world would be painted if those who work in science and participate in scientific research and other things scientific were told they were part of a cult.

therefore, what can be “seen” is that the world affects my “vision” because the world and my self affect my thoughts, and importantly it is my thoughts by which i “see” the world.

consider that i have to believe that those who use the word cult in a pejorative manner against something have to have some type of unique perspective that i myself do not have in order for me to begin to believe that they have the ability to “see” something that i do not “see”.

with that process, what occurs is that i begin to believe their “vision” of things which in turn affects my thoughts, which in turn affects my ability to “see” and given time, i too could begin to “see” pejoratively the very thing that they “see” as pejorative.

therefore to begin to “see” that i am not a victim of the world, i have to begin to “see” differently, and to being “seeing” differently requires me to partly “see” that i am not a victim.

when i can begin to “see” that i am not a victim, then i can begin to “see” freedom, liberty.

but that also means that i have to begin thinking that i am not a victim of my self.

that means that my internals, my mind, my thoughts, have to stop “seeing” my self as a victim.

victim thoughts find themselves in thoughts like:
i am not good enough; or
i am not smart enough; or
i am not wealthy enough; or
i am not talented enough; or
any of the myriad of other ways i tell my self that i am a victim.

therefore declaring that i am not a victim of the world i “see” includes not just what others have told me, but the thoughts that i believe, and the manner in which i “see”.

with this lesson, i am aiming to “see” my self liberated from victimhood, being released from the dark possession of identify of being nothing more than a victim.

i have to “see” my self differently.

today, i declare i am not a victim of the world i “see”.

tomorrow, i declare i am not a victim of the world i “see”.

continually, i sustain that declaration until i “see” that i am not a victim.

consider the following:
i am not a victim of the computer i see.
i am not a victim of the car i see.
i am not a victim of the building i see.

i am not a victim of the music i hear.
i am not a victim of the ideas i hear.
i am not a victim of the words i hear and/or see.

i am not a victim of the politics i see.
i am not a victim of the religion i see.
i am not a victim of the money i see.

i am not a victim of the sexuality i see.
i am not a victim of the emotionality i see.
i am not a victim of the family i see.

within my self, i am not a victim of the personality i see.
within my self, i am not a victim of the mentality i see.
within my self, i am not a victim of the physicality i see.

the concept is to free my self from my own thoughts of me “seeing” my self as a victim, and to free my self from the world’s thoughts of “seeing” me i am a victim.

i must remind my self that i am declaring my freedom from “seeing” my self as a victim.

the concept helps me “see” that i do not have to yield to being, becoming, and/or sustaining my self as a victim. why? because i am NOT the victim of the world i “see”.
