The Unexpected Saturn Return

It all starts finally. It was a hesitant beginning for me. My own assemblage of depression, procrastination and excess of rationalization. Did anybody ever read Dr. Zdrok's book? I did. Well before "The Game" was released. Both books left me perturbed. One was pathological, the other was simply hilarious. We all know what happened when the sequel to Strauss's bestseller came out, right? A plan! Finally! Something we can all work with! I reached day 14 before I was rescued by a brilliant and life-changing friend. He asked me: have you ever heard of Tyler Durden?

Of course, I'd watched Fight Club. Who hadn't? I'd read "The Game" too, but did he really mean Brad Pitt's Tyler Durden? Or did he mean someone else...

He didn't say Owen Cook for reasons that would have been potentially blistering (or so I thought) at the time. He introduced me to the BluePrint and it changed my life. There was no turning back. But was it true? Did it really work?

When I started hitting the clubs with him, there were several paradigm shifts that occurred which made me realize that yes, natural game was a very real phenomenon, and that it could indeed be learned, even mastered. But something was holding me back. Something visceral and tortured. None of my wingmen could figure it out and neither could I. It was only when I went into therapy that I figured out what it was that had caused so much grief. As Jeffy once said: sometimes we're just not ready for this stuff. I wasn't, and I knew it. But now I am.

Guys, I know that meditation is an important subject for you, but from my own experience, the biggest mistake that is made by individuals flocking to that practice is the assumption that it well subconsciously remedy all forms of inner pain. This, I'm afraid, is not true. The cause of depression is unprocessed grief. You must process the grief FIRST. ONLY THEN can meditation work blissfully. As James Hillman once said: If you are still being hurt by an event that happened to you at twelve, it is the thought that is hurting you now. This is true. And mediation is a serene and placid activity, but it won't cure you of the grief. It helps you live with it.

I'll give you a more detailed back-story in due course, but for now, let me just say that I'm out of the dark place, and I'm ready to report my experiences in the field. Over and out.
