…today’s secret…Just one perceptual reality!
The word ‘two’ signifies opposites. Up/Down. Good/Bad. Right/Wrong. In/Out. Left/Right.
Rules are two-dimensional. You follow them or you break them.
Prison inmates are controlled one rule at at time and therefore find themselves living in a two-dimensional reality for years. Do this. Do that. Go here. Eat this. Think this way.
Offenders escape their two-dimensional reality by thinking in three-dimensions. They fantasize their world beyond bars.
They dream. They hope. They imagine possibilities. Freedom? Family? Riches? Wine? Women? Song? Who knows. Their reality.
I’m for this fantasizing as everything in life begins with an idea. Their post-release reality starts with their pre-release imagination. Good for them.
However, problems arise post-release, and many ex-offenders recidivate, because they fail to energize the the three-dimensional world they imagined in their two-dimensional prison world.
If you are working with ex-offenders you are the bridge that brings their differing states of consciousness to one perceptual reality they can get behind and achieve.
Admittedly, this is hard. Hopefully, you’re not just submitting them to another two-dimensional reality.
