Very much enjoyed watching and highly recommend “The Road Within” – excellent story, great acting.
Characters in whose extreme forms of behavior – and related thinking / mental processes – one can see tendencies to which anyone can be prone. I definitely could for myself anyway.
This is very much a movie about self-acceptance, especially acceptance of those aspects of oneself about which one has felt the most ashamed, embarrassed, discomfited, etc., which certainly the case with a substantial amount of the material originating from my “undergrounds” …
As the saying goes, acceptance of where one is in the present provides the only solid basis for change … to the extent that change is possible … and to the extent that change isn’t possible self-acceptance is useful as well.

Watched “Cowspiracy” last night and immediately questioned the relevance of the focus of most or all of my posts. What does it matter whether all of my “Jacking Update” and other posts may in some way, shape, or form — however tangentially — serve my sexual and overall healing when an issue of such overwhelming and urgent importance as the massive contribution of the global livestock / animal agribusiness industry to global warming demands such immediate, concerted attention and action?
Feeling I need to make an intentional / conscious effort to focus more on global sustainability initiatives, and do more for such initiatives via NGO participation — including identifying those NGOs that actually have a significant focus on animal agribusiness, as many of the ones one would expect to have such a focus don’t according to “Cowspiracy” — even though I realize that whatever such contribution I make will amount to a drop in the ocean.
This film is all about bringing truth to light, which is what so much of healing from CSA, including all the “underground” – the darkness it produced, has been about for me.
