CHAPTER 17

MUST AVOID AND CAN’T GET RID OF

This is the flip side of the MUST HAVE / CAN’T HAVE difficulty discussed in the previous chapter. These are the things that many people feel they MUST AVOID but can’t seem to get rid of.

When we were handling something that a person Must Have, we had to begin by wasting it to reverse the stuck flow on trying to get it. Once that is knocked out, then we run general processes of accepting and rejecting it to stabilize the person so that he doesn’t start the whole mess over again.

For something that the person is trying to get rid of which wouldn’t go away (and almost seems like he is pulling in on himself), the first process has to be the exact opposite. Since he is compulsively avoiding, he must mockup ways to have more of whatever it is until the stuck point dissolves. Then we do the rest of it exactly the same as we did for a Must Have because the remaining steps get the person to a point where he can accept or reject at will without compulsion.

Refer back to section 15.1 in the previous chapter for general information on doing these processes.

Again we will work over some common things that people are often avoiding.

17.1 Drudgery

Here we are looking at the flip side of desirable work. This is the stuff that the person doesn’t want to do and is not interested in doing but is made to do by whatever circumstances.

17.1.6

Now close your eyes and imagine that you are looking down at a large city as in 16.1.6 above.
