November 11, 2009

 

                    The child of the past —
                Children who were neglected, not
                told how special they were, not
                given the love and affirmation they
                needed — mom or dad busy with
                other things neglecting the needs of
                the children, alcoholics, mom and
                dad addicted to things and unavailable
                can be the reason a child is scared
                from necessary needs.

                    When some wanted to get
                married — because of being so
                starved of ordinary love — or the
                siblings got it — a person can be
                so wounded and wanting the affection
                they never had as a child and they
                can act out in the infantile stage —
                where they want to be picked up and
                held — Their acting out with others
                in attempting to have spousal
                intimate relationship can be that
                of wanting more and more affection
                like a child — not a married partner —
                wounded this way and not admitting it
                to themselves they may keep a distance,
                put up a wall and never have any
                friends because they are wounded and
                are full of anger, vindictiveness from
                unmet needs —

                    They can act out — almost as if
                they were in that unfinished business
                of childhood — provoking — secretly to
                watch a family, a community fall —
                to vent their vindication for their unmet
                needs and lack of love for themselves —
                or recognition of their specialness —
                that they were uniquely created by God
                for His purpose —

                    Styles of the wounded child cause
                havoc, push others away — can act like
                a house of cards — in their sneakiness
                they provoke and in advanced stages
                can be happy when others suffer
                because of their sin —

                    In normal homes — children learn
                they are special — siblings are
                recognized in their uniqueness — love
                is given to help all children develop in
                healthy, loving relationships —

                    People's inner child can be
                so scared from unmet needs — their
                life can be seen as the inner child
                acting out their past - as locked
                in that world —

                    They can latch onto innocent others
                who are loving and helpful as they create
                the atmosphere of being a victim and
                victimized by someone in their present
                life — having nothing to do with their
                unmet needs, but suffering as the
                wounded child of the past plays havoc
                in any setting, family, community etc.
                where the hidden child wants vindication
                and repair for unmet needs of the past
                God wants unity and love in the Father's
                family — Because of the wounded human
                nature the tendencies
                remain after baptism — the tendencies
                of seeking dominance for dominance sake —
                pride (which open a door to satan ), envy,
                jealousy, slothfulness, gluttony, greedy,
                lust etc. —

                    Some seek affections for themselves —
                vain glory, others give into foolish
                pride, others seek riches —
                These tendencies are because of our
                fallen human nature —

                    We can watch a person — who has
                said "no" to relationships — seek
                to act out in whatever setting they
                are in —

                    Being neglected and scared in
                childhood must be worked through
                in the heart of the wounded person —
                to continue acting vindictively when in
                the company of a family, community is
                to say for some — how can they do that
                again and for those acting
                out of a scared past — they are
                acting in their blindness from the
                desire of a hidden child — filled with
                anger for unmet needs —

                    You can say — in love to them — when
                they come to the scene with a childish
                demanding look — like "why don't you
                fix me" — You can say when a job
                needs to be done and they can only see
                through these 'childish wounded eyes'
                "What do you want?"

                    They can't tell you — they are
                wounded and they project their wounded
                anger on an innocent other as they
                can once more — be as they have
                allowed themselves to be —

                    Acting out for the inner child of
                the past —

                    Not parenting themselves and acting
                as they should —

                    but acting out childish anger —
                now can be 50 years old — walking
                back and forth before those they
                believe has wronged them — as if the
                person dealing with them in adult
                life could know the locked box
                they hold of unmet childhood needs and
                do anything to help them — demanding
                attention — blocking work — hurting
                others and the little child inside them
                demands to through their pouting
                session — one more time

                    Like Fr. Mike says — it is
                them — the defects of their character they
                give into — acting like a child demanding
                their way with wounded emotions
                from childhood — in their adult body —
                When would it end — if one happened to
                be married to this person —

                    Only when they go through some
                form of recovery for themselves — they
                have to look at themselves — A person
                scared in childhood and acting out
                in adulthood can be filled with
                anger to try to cause the cards to
                fall — the key is how they provoke —
                God intends us to be accountable for our
                behavior — to know ourselves — not to
                fall into pockets of childhood scars and
                project hatred on innocent others for
                our unmet childhood needs —

                    Children need love — attention,
                they learn about themselves when first
                born - as toddlers

                    But we are responsible for our
                sins — When we sin we are to examine
                our conscience and say we were
                wrong and repent — tell God we are sorry —
                A person locked in childhood scars —
                projecting on others their past hurts can
                see why the innocent other should
                be punished for their anger —

                    This is wrong —
                    We are to follow Jesus —
                    We are to live in the truth —
                    We are to admit our sins
                    We are to grow in greater
                        purity

                Being stuck in a cubby hole, that
                    is dark — with our wounded
                    child of the past — raging —
                    projecting onto others our misery
                    and hatred — blaming others for the
                    blackness inside of us — makes us
                    deeper and deeper in that blackness —
                    untruth —

                Where God intends us to — go to confession —
                    to live holy lives —

                We can say
                    "I do what I want"
                    You will put up with my
                    provoking, arguing, secrets and
                    That's how I come!!"

                A person provoking in their ways — will
                    do it when a bishop is there —
                    in Church etc. —

                That is how they act — that is the
                    defect of character —

                When others are seeing outward —
                    praying — doing the job
                    at hand — the ones acting
                    out from their wounded
                    childhood are locked in
                    themselves!

                    They see inward into the darkness
                of their sins, selfishness — hurting
                others and seeing how they have
                been wronged

                    A person walking in the Light
                lives to build the Kingdom of God —
                lives in the truth —
                lives in Christ —
                lives to love God and others

                A person not working on themselves
                    acting out of their 'style"
                    and having any relationships besides
                    with their family
                    that were lasting — is missing a lot —

                God made us to grow —
                God made us to be actors
                                    NOT Reactors —

                When someone is in a community and
                    they do something, every time,
                    to tear it down —
                    that is hidden — sneaky — they
                    should ask themselves —

                What does God mean about building
                    His Kingdom?

                How is the Holy Spirit working in
                    their lives to live in that
                    oneness with God —

                The Trinity is our model
                The Trinity is the most perfect community —

                The Heavenly Father wants us pure
                    like Mary

                The Heavenly Father gave us Mary
                    our spiritual Mother

21.                     SPIRITUAL EXERCISES

    Which have as their purpose the conquest of self
    and the regulation of one's life in such a way that
    no decision is made under the influence of any
    inordinate attachment

  

From The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius
    by Louis J. Puhl, S.J. p. 12

                        23. FIRST PRINCIPLE AND FOUNDATION

                            Man is created to praise, reverence and serve God 
                        our Lord, and by this means to save his soul.

 

                God gave us the sacrament of
                    marriage to work with each
                    other —
                    We don't marry our family —

                God gives us children — to
                    co-create out of our love —

                Love is relationship
                Heaven is relationship

                I saw a pamphlet in Alanon —
                    It was called
                    "The Merry-Go-Round
                                called denial"

                The hardest thing can be to be honest
                    with ourselves —

                When adults are raging like little
                    children who need love

                When adults are passive-aggressive —
                    where provoking and punishing
                    become a way of life —

                How could such behavior make that
                    individual happy

                In the Merry-go-round called denial
                    it says the provoker is the
                    key —

                A passive-aggressive person can provoke in
                    secret to anger another and walk away
                    like one in a white wedding dress —

                My brother at Church said Sunday —
                    My mom always taught me
                    She said
                    "I might not see you, but God does"

                A person hurting others drives themselves further
                    and further from God — and therefore
                    are miserable and angry

                Happiness comes in union with God —

                When we sin and hurt others — we are missing
                    the boat of life —

                Life is in Him —
                God wants us to live united to Him —
                God wants us to die to our evil ways —
                People who provoke and act out on others
                    from their wounded childhoods
                    bring division and untruth —
                    NOT Unity and LOVE

                We are to control ourselves —
                Not be reactors of our wounded childhoods
                One lady wore a dress every Sunday —
                On closer notice — it became every day —
                    every hour

                The dress was the dress of a wounded
                    angry, vindictive child of the past

                God wants us holy like Mary
                Fr. Carter talks about asceticism

                We are to discipline ourselves and
                    be accountable for our failings —

                God gives us confession

                Jesus died for our sins —

                Spiritual growth is why we are
                    here —

                To be more perfected as our heavenly
                    Father is perfect

Words of Jesus to Members of
Shepherds of Christ Associates:

"My beloved priest-companion, I intend to use the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, and the movement, Shepherds of Christ Associates, in a powerful way for the renewal of My Church and the world.

"I will use the newsletter and the chapters of Shepherds of Christ Associates as a powerful instrument for spreading devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart.

"I am calling many to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. To all of them I will give great blessings. I will use them as instruments to help bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. I will give great graces to the members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. I will call them to be deeply united to My Heart and to Mary's Heart as I lead them ever closer to My Father in the Holy Spirit."

- Message from Jesus to Father Edward J. Carter, S.J., Founder, as given on July 31, 1994,
feast of Saint Ignatius Loyola, Founder of the Society of Jesus (The Jesuits)
