“Imagine that you have been put under a hypnotic trance in which you were told that you would be a person that was constantly concerned and afraid of life. You were told that you were a physical body that would die and that that could happen at any moment. You were told that to be happy or satisfied you would have to have the right amount of money, the right relationship, the right possessions, and the right circumstances. You were told that you would not remember that you had been put in a trance. The only way you could come out of the trance would be to notice the trance itself and realize that it was possible for you to be free of it. To consciously remember that you were not what you were told you were, and to recognize that fact long enough, will allow for the trance to be broken.”
