Yeah but I don’t think most humans (or even “part of the planet”) would choose that, if they were mindful.
And I don’t belief mindlessness is “human nature”.
And I think it’s important to make the distinction. In fact, it’s a variation on what I stated above: perhaps we need to analyze the energy exchange in the abuser-victim as detachedly as I suggested we should examine the predatory-prey food relationship.
Not that it’s abnormal (on inhuman, quite the contrary) to have an emotional reaction, but if we can’t get beyond that, we can only provide band-aids, not real healing.
