Why do you recommend that young people not recap?
The recapitulation is not recommended for most young people, young being defined as teens and younger. However, there are specific situations where it can be helpful, even for a teen.
Should we Recap Current Relationships? I heard it might not be a good idea to recap current relationships. How do you deal with them and heal the unhealthy parts?
It's like this: if you recap a relationship along with the rest of the work you're doing, you will find that the relationship appears in a new light - and not one that necessarily is pleasant.
Some people have fear of recapping - this fear seems to stop them - therefore the question is, why is there fear and how do you overcome it?
Over the years, I've watched people use the recapitulation technique with various results. Usually those results are rather profound in terms of their own self-discovery. Unfortunately, I also see people who attempt the recap and stop because of their own fears, or because it becomes difficult to do. When we fear anything, the first question we need to ask ourselves is whether the fear is a rational fear, or one born out of a sense of survival, an urgent need to avoid danger to ourselves?
Sex is second only to the will to survive in human energy and it involves an energetic exchange in intensity along those lines. Men use women, women use men, men use men, women use women - it's all very tawdry. Energetically, men hook into women for the fluidity they represent, and women into men for the grounding. I know it's supposed to be the opposite, but I've never seen it that way. Even in exchanges that seem casual, from an energetic point of view, it's no different because of the biological imperative.
In essence, we are all subject to addiction of one sort or another, it is only a societal judgment which determines which are good and which are bad.
We may drink "moderately" - which society says is okay - but we can't smoke pot moderately because society says that is "bad". All addictive behavior serves to isolate and crystallize your energy in one way or another.
