Sorry, but I'm a 3d STS being with all that it implies and that is not rationalization, it is a fact. Part "so what do you expect" I have never said. Like most of the people here I am struggling to maybe become something better, starting with becoming fully operational 3d, less operational STS being moving to STO part as much as possible considering point on which I am in the cycle of learning. But I don't think that I can just simply by acknowledging that something is not good for me, immediately stop doing it, all of it, all at once, just like that. Can you?
Moreover, it is not known to you wether I believe (dream) that I have actually accomplished anything or not, and my post certainly do not contain information from which you can derive that opinion. So, you are assuming what I think or believe. Or dream.
Whoa! I am sorry that you took this so personally. I, obviously, was not communicating properly. :( Although, you taking it so personally might be something that you would want to look further into as it must have struck a chord somewhere.
The reason I mentioned this was partly because of what you wrote, and this reminded me of many others who have stated things close to this very same way as excuses for why they just cannot let go of their beliefs. People just do not want to let go of things that they really identify with.
The fact is, as you say, we are all 3d STS. But to use this as an excuse as to why we should only let go of our addictions bit by bit is only an excuse to keep doing them. Just like drugs. I had an acquaintance who really thought that since he had quit his drug habits LOTS of times that he really did not have an addiction.
Yes, we all do keep falling back into long time programming and addictions, but to tell ourselves that, well, we are only 3d STS beings anyway, is not the way to progress. It is like reinforcing in our minds why we cannot quit whatever it is we are trying to quit.
I am probably still not being as clear as I would like to be. And if you still feel insulted, you may want to look at why this is. That is, of course, if you really are interested in learning about yourself. ;)
