Jack does not know how to resolve conflicts. Jack is frustrated and is wearing himself out in futile efforts to fulfill his impossible dreams. Jack has been encouraged to attempt to achieve impossible dreams of idealistic perfection in: physical strength, form and appearance; masculine achievement and enjoyment, financial success, feminine attentions, family success, etc. Jack has not been taught how to sort out the possible from the impossible dreams, and he has internalized impossible dreams without respect for human limitations. Among other considerations Jack wants to achieve control over his own and other people's thoughts, feelings, desires, fears, associations, fulfillments, ideals, values, knowledge, understanding, etc. Jack has dreams of visionary accomplishments under his direction and control, in accordance with his ideals and values. Jack's problem is that he does not know how to tell the difference between what is possible and what is inherently impossible by virtue of limited human powers, time, energy, resources, knowledge, skills, and wisdom. Jack is experiencing conflicts between his intentions and what is possible for humans to achieve. As an addict Jack is confused and out of touch with reality because of his dishonest habits of mind and heart. Jack and his significant codependent supporters are playing a game of mutual self deception regarding what they can achieve and control. Mostly they are trying to control each other's associations, experiences, thoughts, feelings, perceptions, insights, etc. to protect their collusive game of mutual self deception. They compulsively feel a need to fulfill their own unrealistic ideals and values as the way to joy and salvation. They do not know the joy and salvation of knowing each other intimately in open and honest dialogue. They are seeking an idealistic alternative through some achievement and control. Jack does not know his own feelings and thoughts, for they would undermine the appearance of integrity in his and others' collusions. Jack does not know his own powers and limitations, for such knowledge would undermine the appearance of integrity in his and others' collusions. Jack is ignorant of much that he needs to know to make wise decisions and to achieve that which is within his power to achieve. Such knowledge would undermine his collusion which apparently points the way to his achievement of joy and salvation. Jack is compulsively looking for the pot of gold at the end of the very big and distant rainbow. Jack thinks of that rainbow as a real object which can be attained and controlled to bring joy and fulfillment. Jack thinks that only fools regard that achievement as impossible. Jack is giving his life in his effort to achieve and control the impossible perfection which he sees in the big and distant rainbow. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
