About the I am not the victim mantra...

Posted by 64bowtie on December 2, 2004, at 9:39:18

Anytime I perceive that what I feel in my gut as an injustice, I recite quietly, "I am not the victim". This allows me to perceive injustice and not risk violence.

I ride the bus, because I can, and it saves on wear-and-tear of that 1964 Chevy "bowtie" pickup I drive. It already has over 300,000 miles on it. Also, if I get run into, it takes six times as long to fix. Furthermore, the bus saves on my not needing a second car, with insurance and all the monthly payment cr*p. So, I ride the bus.

While riding the bus, if I see a Mom slug her child to invoke behavior, I fume, but I remain alert to step in if the childs life is in danger, and I recite my mantra to myself. While in the checkout line in a retail store, if I see two strangers yelling at each other, I stay alert but out of the discussion, and I recite my mantra to myself.

Take the time to picture where you react alot as if you are the victim, and yet you aren't. Now, overlay reciting your mantra. What works for me is "I am not the victim". What works for you?
