PL 31 & 66: Shame / Shame of the Higher Self   Shame is an intense emotion, easily activated by focusing upon both our distortions and our best higher self intentions (which may try to manifest before we are mature enough to understand them). Shame can be used by others -- and by ourselves -- to prevent our development and leave us emotionally and spiritually crippled.

PL 83: The Idealized Self Image The most important countermeasure man resorts to in the false belief that it will circumvent unhappiness, unpleasure, death, never realizing that this very countermeasure not only does not avoid, but brings on the very thing that is most dreaded and fought against. This common, universal pseudo-protection is the creation of the idealized self-image.

PL 101: The Defense  They may be subtle and hard to detect at first, but once you are aware of defenses it is easy to see that many of us are in defense most of the time. We defend against frustration of our will, against anything that does not go according to our wishes.

PL 118 & PRS 10: Transference, Parents, and Images

Psychological transference describes how we recreate patterns of behavior towards authority based upon how we interacted with our parents. Spiritual transference refers to projecting our attitudes towards human beings onto God. Samples include finding our way through life (Blind Dog) and how differently adults see things, (White Lies)

The force filed of a specific attitude to life is also ruled by the laws of attraction -- like attracting like." pgl 201. Discussion of natural law following spiritual law, and how when cause and effect are separated, confusion results - disabling our ability to understand where our responsibilities might be.

PL 249: The Pain of Injustice  This type of pain contains more than could be put in this word.  It is not just actual injustice happening to you here and now, a specific issue. It is a fear that the universe can allow destruction to exist without safety valves.  It is the fear that nothing has rhyme or reason, that good being done has no effect on the outcome of cosmic history and evolution.
