In the process of working with a public school, I have the opportunity to meet many young ones and parents who struggle to be right...who want to be recognized...accepted...be like the other or better than another. Ahh, the search for love, approval and/or recognition: it will get "you!" This mind set causes a tremendous degree of anguish to the point where they seem to give up. An actor recently overdosed on heroin as he relapsed into his addiction. What pain was he trying to treat? What hole was he wanting to fill through the roles he played? What did he seek to understand? Recent incidents of shootings in schools, malls and government buildings end up in destroying life. The rate of suicides is increasing. Perhaps some say they want to give up because it doesn't seem to matter: what's the use, anyway? They attach to the belief that they are criticized, ostracized, continuously put down and not enough. By attaching to that story, they can only focus on the proofs that it is true. Here it is; they are not enough! Why would someone scan the land, so to speak, to verify that pitiful story?

What is the root of this suffering? What role does rejection play in it? Moreover, who is rejecting whom? On the note of rejection, how does rejecting another immediately result in having me fear rejection? And vice-versa: how does my fear of rejection lead me to reject myself or the other? The impacts of this defilement are tremendous: does my not taking a "no" for an answer interfere with my body processes? In connecting it to the mouth center, might my fear of rejection cause me to have acid reflux, an ailment that seems to touch so many of us? Can this mental process be understood and cleaned up?
