Compassionate deprogramming is completely possible, as somatic self-inquiry becomes a natural part of our everyday life, our daily practice, our awareness, and a part of our functioning.
This is important because our programming, or behavior, was formed repeatedly over a long time, as we were repeatedly triggered in certain relationships and situations. Because of this, our programming also must be repeatedly and gradually brought to the surface and seen through “conscious triggering” during self-inquiry.
The past unconscious triggering embedded our emotions and sensations deeper and deeper into our body-mind. And now with somatic self-inquiry, we gradually lift and bring them to the surface.
Our (sense of) self —formed through emotional repression and unprocessed traumas—are constantly being calmed, understood and dissolved, as we bring them into awareness with inquiry. That’s why we call it “COMPASSIONATE DEPROGRAMMING.”
Don’t be fooled by the term “deprogramming”—it’s not a mechanical process. Just think about it… every part of you that has struggled alone in the darkness of unconsciousness can now be seen, felt, understood, and touched by you. Can you imagine that? What could give you a more intimate connection and deeper safety within yourself?
And because, in our deepest moments of inquiry, we question our most unconscious, most automatic fears, beliefs and behaviors, our insight and understanding will be mind-blowing!
And most beautifully, dissolution of the repressing and traumatized self—let’s call this healing—does not create a “new self.” There is no new self… The new sense of life and perception, a new “sense” of existence, does not bring with it a “new self.” This new or refined perception is indescribable. If I had to describe it in only one word, I would call it FREEDOM.
But even “freedom” cannot describe the NATURAL STATE that comes with natural recovery from suffering.
The result is indescribable, until we experience it ourselves.
