Limiting Belief – I Am a Victim.
We are not victims, we are, however, unconscious creators in the act of awakening.
Limiting Belief – I am a victim.
If we look at only a small part of the “movie” of our awakening to our True Nature it may appear that we have been harmed and victimized by someone else. But, if we could see the whole movie we might see that the seeming harm was a teaching, an awakening and that in the final analysis it served us, even though it was painful at the time.
Until we know the Truth from within ourselves, the answer to the question “Is victimization possible or is it just how we learn?” will be merely a belief.
I propose to you that we can evaluate the benefit or harm of holding a belief. If holding one belief harms you and holding the opposite belief helps you, it is foolish to hold a belief that harms you.
Test this proposition for yourself. What if you were a victim and had no power to change things that hurt you. How would you feel?
What if everything that has happened to you — seeming good and seeming bad — has been for your healing and growth and that you could not be at this point in your awakening if you had not gone through all the experiences you have now? How would you feel?
Which one feels better to you? Then, since we won’t know for sure until we know from within, choose the belief that benefits you. When Buddha was asked how will we know the truth he responded “Because it works.” Choose the belief that works.
The great spiritual and mystical traditions teach the same point: We are not victims; we are subconscious creators. Here are a few examples:
“I am responsible for what I see
I choose the feelings I experience
And I decide upon the goal I would achieve.
And everything that seems to happen to me
I ask for, and receive as I have asked.”

“Thy faith hath made thee whole.” “If you have faith and doubt not;
it shall be done.”
“As we are, so we do; as we do, so is it done to us; we are the
builders of our fortunes.”
“We can take possession of our affairs only as we consciously realize
that they are the effect of our own consciousness.”
“…the outer world is nothing more than a projection of our inner lives.
We create it by our egos, our attachments, and our desires. If something
appears bad or wrong in the world, its cause is inside us, not in
the outer world.”
Baba Hari Dass
“When you are thwarted, it is your own attitude that is out of order.”
We cannot enter the sacred, the Wholeness and believe in victimization. Victimization requires that we are separate and that someone could hurt someone else and not hurt themselves. Wholeness tells us that we are One and that any harm or thought of harm harms you and me simultaneously. Love could not harm. It could not harm Itself or anything.
Victimization is just part of the movie without a view of the whole.
