I wonder what the difference between "play into drama" and "play the drama" is. Same meaning, isn't it??

I don't really know what either means without some context. Can you add some context to these for us? :?:

Actually it's no context. It is like a questionnaire, see below.

The World of Victims.

Check off the ones that most partain to you.

Victims...

____ live in powerfulessness
____ take little responsibility for their feelings
____ are not the boss of their lives; rather everything and everyone else is
____ play into dramas, and...
____ judge the players relentlessly
____ feel like helpless pawns being moved around
....

And there is also another questionaire for the Masters.

The World of Masters.

Check off the ones that most partain to you.

Masters...

____ choose what is desired, for the joy of it
____ allow, without judgement
____ are always in control
____ no longer play into dramas; they ignore them
____ no logner give themselves away to the world
____ choose calm where there is chaos
...


I don't know what the red text really means. Is it similar to "play the drama?"

:roll:

OK. In this context "play into" means "participate in", "take a role in", "get involved in". The dramas are the negative/heavy scenarios in the lives of others. It is saying that victims get sucked into the negative scenarios around them, while masters do not.

tks,

"Forged" means "created as if by a blacksmith on a forge". It means that victims think they are made from things outside themselves. I am angry because John lied to me.

I assume that this author believes that masters are forged from within. They create their own reality. I am not angry because I choose not to be angry. :wink:

You will find out, over time, that almost all of the self-help gurus, say the same things. :roll:

I have one more to ask.......and maybe more in the future, :p

The context is...

First of all, you can't even get into this place we call Earth without at least two old buddies in the unseen to walk with you daily. Usually they're old friends from other times and lives, or other realities. But whoever they are, they are always with you.

Here, what are "other realities" meant? I think the two old buddies are Eve and Adam but why the writer has to say "they're old friends from other times and lives, or other realities"??

Any idea :idea: ??
