The Plot Starring the Hero, Dealing with Feelings
All the world’s a stage
And all the men and women merely players.
They have their exits and their entrances
And one man in his time plays many parts.
Shakespeare’s famous lines very aptly describe your emotional nature that fuels all your actions. Your passions are less well understood than your brain or your body, about which a wealth of literature has been written.
Drama, conflict and controversy are what your feelings thrive on. No amount of logic, facts or figures can ever change them. Emotions need action, plays, songs and stories to learn from if they are to transform.
This series of eBooks introduces you to your feelings that drive you into actions that many times you don’t agree with. Don’t feel dim-witted that you haven’t figured out your feelings by now, few have. In spite of our high spiritual ideals, religious teachings and incredible scientific advancements, human behavior has shockingly been much the same century after century.
Your feelings keep you unconsciously playing the same-old roles again and again like a broken record. You will change the scenarios and the cast of characters, but your emotional nature won’t change the script. In fact, the more familiar the plot, the more it appeals to your emotions.
Why is your emotional nature so intent on expressing itself? Because, then its role can be recognized, and you can be understood. Otherwise, you’ll lament, “No one understands me.” Feeling misunderstood is something your emotional nature is continuously trying to correct by expressing your feelings.
There’s a whole range of feelings to be conveyed, from love to joy, laughter to tears, fear, anger and hate. That’s the way in which you and everyone else’s part can be distinguished. That’s when your emotional nature can receive the attention it direly wants.
Your emotional nature, the actor and actress within you, expresses itself through three starring roles – victim, villain or hero. The villain abuses the victim, the victim is saved by the hero, and the hero defeats the villain.
This eBook, The Plot – Starring the Hero is the third in a series of eBooks – The Plot – Dealing with Feelings (Victim, Villain and Hero).
The star in every Western epic, every family saga and The Avengers or Jurassic Park is, of course, the hero. The hero rescues the victim from the villain’s clutches and goes on to defeat the villain. Both, hero and victim know the script well.
Trusting heroes will believe the melodramatic story of victim or villain. The tale is what your emotions relate to, and the better the plot; the more your feelings become involved. Especially hard-luck dramas appeal to the heroes as they share the characteristic purity and gullibility with the victim.
The hero knows that the final act ends with the words They Lived Happily Ever After. Have you noticed in the movies or on Broadway and in your favorite thriller that this scene is always very short, and then the curtain comes down fast? You never get to see how the protagonists live happily ever after, but it’s the Hero who basks in his triumph, even if for only a few moments.
