"At the end of the last chapter of this work, I shared a quote from my online book about the Attack on America in which I called on spiritual and New Age teachers and healers and practitioners to be willing to be open to expanding their intellectual paradigm so that they could stop empowering polarity and shame about being human. I cannot emphasize too much how important this is - for all of us who are doing this healing and spiritual work.
I will be talking more about the metaphysical aspects of this in a later chapter, but in this chapter I want to focus on integrating Love into this human horizontal dance we are doing - and how vital and freeing it is to stop empowering polarity. Learning how to stop viewing ourselves, life, and other people from a black and white / right and wrong perspective is the key to manifesting Love into the World."
"Metaphysical laws can be used for purposes other than manifesting Love into the world - like the Americanized version of Buddhism I ran into years ago that used the vibrational power of chanting to manifest new cars or whatever. I believe that in this new Age of Healing and Joy, our job is to integrate Spirituality into our relationship with life. We are here to heal our relationship with our self so that we can manifest Love into our internal process and into the world. It is by healing our codependency that we will not only learn to develop a more Loving relationship with ourselves so that we can learn to relax and enjoy life much of the time, but will also heal the human condition.On this page is the thirteenth chapter of an online book by codependency therapist/Spiritual teacher.
. . . . . . . . Now there is nothing wrong with new cars, or any other material goodies. I would love to have a new car. But to access the power of the Universe and focus our energy on manifesting money, property, and prestige, is to be too attached to the Illusion. As long as we are looking outside of ourselves for the people, places, and things that will fix us and make us feel good about our self, we are stuck in our disease. As long as we are taking ego strength from comparing our self to others we are empowering codependency - which means we are empowering the illusion that separation is the highest Truth instead of connection, instead of ONENESS."

Chapter 13: Changing the Music: Love instead of fear and shame
When I was working on these two chapters focused on codependency and the New Age Movement, I got an e-mail from someone who had recently ordered my book that said the following:
"Dance, Dance, wherever you may be. That's what the Lord of the Dance said He. Dance, Dance, wherever you may be and I'll be with you in the Dance said He."The later two quotes are from my page: The True Nature of Love - part 3, Love as a Vibrational Frequency. The second one in a different color because it is a quote from my Trilogy that I used on that page. I believe that the first part of the person's e-mail - up to "I'll be with you in the Dance said He." - is from a song called Lord of the Dance.
What is important about this e-mail I received is that the person did "get it." We need to change the music we are dancing to - and in order to do that we need to change the subconscious intellectual paradigm that is dictating our emotional reactions. And we cannot do that without doing the deep emotional healing. . . . . .
. . . . . We have been dancing through life in disharmony and imbalance - in dis-ease. It is by clearing up our relationship with our own internal process - so that we can change our core relationship with self and life - that we can start to dance with some balance and harmony to the music of the ultimate Truth of Love and Joy.
