ELEMENTS provides many adventures and ways to explore and further your life, and the wisdom and folly of many people. In THE MAGIC THEATER II you experience the ideas and methods of people like Berne, Freud and Pavlov.INTRODUCTIONThe ELEMENTS OF STYLE, by Strunk and White, describes the most important elements in the use of the English language. ELEMENTS of Self-exploration and Adventure does the same for self-help psychology.Experiential, not intellectual, understanding is emphasized. You experience concepts and strategies first and think about them later. For instance, Element 2 does not describe and analyze Pavlovian conditioning. You create the Power Words RELAX and ENERGIZE, and then use them in your life.Seriously consider writing down your experiences, perhaps in a journal. That adds a valuable dimension, and later reading what you wrote adds another.A. ELEMENTSThere are 70 Elements. Some are fun adventures. Others change your life.B. THE MAGIC CONNECTIONElement 2 creates a connection between RELAX and relaxation, and that may be all you need. But if you have trouble relaxing, or want to deepen the connection, use this very effective, relaxation program.After you complete the relaxation program you’ll be invited to go on a number of fantasy trips---you deserve a big reward. In the final fantasy, you’ll recover a past life. Whether you consider what you find real or imaginary depends upon your belief system.C. FANTASY ADVENTURES OF SELF-DISCOVERYA serious warning!The atmosphere created by the candlelight and fantasies is powerful. You need to have a firm grip on reality, and a reasonably stable life to go on these fantasy trips. Otherwise best to pass on by.D. DREAMING AN IMPORTANT DISCOVERYBandwidth is far greater in the dream than the waking state.E. WISDOM AND FOLLYThe most important and useful quotations I’ve found. You decide which are wise and which foolish.
