Stress and Inversion

Everywhere we look, the world's getting more difficult. There's traffic and pollution. Cell phones ringing day and night. We've got global warming, and terror alerts. Disappearing bees and school shootings. The drug companies push medication on us relentlessly through a medical system that's been corrupted by money and brainwashing. How do we cope with all this stress?

Today on Thinking with Somebody Else's Head, I'd like to look at a psychological condition that, if we understand it better, can truly change how we approach everything - from science and politics, to human relationships and even society's laws. This is the process of psychological Inversion that Norberto Keppe discovered in his clinical research over the past fifty years.

Simply put, Inversion is the process whereby we see everything upside down. For instance, we see money as more important than work - so a corporation can lay off 20,000 employees and see its stock price jump in value. We think disease comes from bacteria and viruses, rather than that it primarily comes from a loss in inner force because of our psychological states of mind. We think it's a jungle out there and live our lives accordingly.

This is a large topic becasue our Inversion of values and priorities is everywhere. We've talked about it in many ways already on this Podcast - related to money and power, and even quantum physics and reality, which are quite different when seen through non-inverted eyes.

Today, I want to focus our sights on stress. Have a listen and let me know what you think:

Sofie Bergqvist is a Swedish teacher and international lecturer and seminar leader who's been studying and working at Norberto Keppe's International Society of Analytical Trilogy for over ten years. She joins me today.

Hi Richard and others!

I wonder about the concept of inversion. When,according to you,Richard, became the human being inverted? After all I have read in your blog I can see you are a "creationist". Am i wright? Do you mean that the human being in our history, first once upon a time was created perfect and then first always lived according to the natural laws? What is your opinion about the concept of "Adam and Eve" and about "the snake" and about "the forbidden fruit". How many years has the human being existed and how many years has the Eath existed do you mean? How could the human being first get inverted? What happened? And why would other,the following generations people suffer from that?
All the best,

Hi Mikael,
Well, obviously I don't know the exact date of the first inversion (hehehehe) but it certainly can be understood from the story of Adam and Eve. It appears to have been a choice from the very first humans, which has been passed down genetically to us ever since. Yes, it appears that we were created perfect. Everything seems to lead to that conclusion. For example, if you stop polluting a polluted river, it will eventually (and in a relatively short period of time) return to its natural state. Everything in nature is like this: the balance of nature is beautiful, good and true BY ITSELF. Any imperfection is introduced by human beings in our pathological desire to destroy what exists by itself and replace it with our own creation.

We suffer from this Inversion because it has affected our genetic structure. After all, if we have genetic correctors for many physical conditions, but they don't work, we have to consider why they don't work as they should. Keppe's clinical experience suggests that they are affected by our attitudes - blocked, so to speak by our pathology. Centuries of this Inversion have affected us enormously. That's what we're trying to explore on the Podcast.

As for how many years the Earth has existed ... I don't know the answer to that. Norberto Keppe's son, Marc Andre Keppe, has explored that in his book, The Origin of Earth, which I understand you know something about. I think that would be a great topic for a future Podcast, actually, so stay tuned.

And thanks for the comment, and for listening!
