Some of our personality aspects–subselves or “subs”–resonate the modules of the master matrix (relax, feel limits, struggle, triumph) we all go through as part of our perinatal experience. “Bliss“ subselves express the relaxation module. Limits show in our “Sadsack” subs. “Rambo” & “Whoopie” reflect challenge & triumph.

When we relax or feel loving oneness with others we live from a BLISS sub. We play a Pax part like Mellow Fellow, Content Lover, or Mediator. A SADSACK sub dominates us when we feel trapped, doomed, depressed, hopeless, sad, & limited. We worry, & drink. RAMBO–struggle subs–include our Hero, Striving Businessperson, Critic or Athlete. WHOOPIE comes out as Star, Joyous Dancer, or Escaper.

Accept & understand the dance of Bliss, Sadsack, Rambo & Whoopie. Relax, feel our limits, meet challenges, win, & relax again. Enjoy repose (Bliss), know when we need change (Sadsack), choose challenges (Rambo), triumph over trials (Whoopie), & savor victory (Bliss).  Sometimes Bliss, Sadsack, Rambo & Whoopie subs compete or demand destructive deeds. But they all need cooperation & love. They need us to notice, protect, & include them in our life rhythm. If we meet their needs, our subs enhance each other, us as a whole, other people & the planet.

But suppose we ignore Sadsack and refuse to see how we cage ourselves. Or maybe we push inner struggles (Rambo) from our minds. If we deny our sad and mad feelings, we get other people to make us sad & mad. We make the world warrant what we repress. If we suppress Sadsack, we find people to make us feel guilty, hopeless, sad, or caught. If we repress Rambo, we create situations that justify compulsive competition & never relax. So don’t let depression and inner struggle–Sadsack & Rambo repressed–drive us. Integrate Sadsack’s dissatisfaction & Rambo’s power with the love of Bliss & joy of Whoopie.
