An unwillingness to accept responsibility for
the poor results of choices and behaviors.
Blames others for their failures.
Excuse themselves because of some event, or combination of events, occurring in their past lives.
Always has an excuse or an explanation.
Wants to 'explain' their life story with extensive references supporting #1.
Can not fathom that others can see them
as they truly are and continually attempts to exploit the
theory that 'they don't have a clue'.
Can not see themselves as they truly are as the limit of their vision is formed under the boundaries
Lives life as though on a merry go round.; doing
the same things the same way endlessly and irregardless
of the behavioral history of failure attached to the given endeavor.
Expect others to fill up their lives.
Life is a question of filling up time - not of living life.
Only rarely does the Non Ascendant indulge a behavior that has not been employed many times before.
Seen as a variable that can change from moment
to moment given the need of a particular moment.
Lying is okay if it serves the needs of a moment.
Pursuant to #1 and #3, the Non Ascendant will expect you to believe you are a special character and
they won't lie to you.
Why tell the truth when a lie will suffice.
When confronted with the falsities of the operational
premises supporting #1 and #3, the Non Ascendant
typically runs to avoid.
Will become angry and resentful when confronted with their behaviors and will ultimately plot some 'pay back'.
Are objects to be used. If for no better purpose
than filling up the emptiness of the NA's life.
NA's are users not givers and always take more than they give.
When inclined towards giving, it is always a bargain and the NA will serve up only the minimum necessary to
maintain their taker's advantage.
NA's are incapable of true love.
Love is a bargaining and a word to be used in bargaining.
The NA may give lip service to love and service to others, however, the bargains always require they
'receive' first, last and always.
The avenue of first recourse.
Always takes the path of least resistance.
Not a possibility to the NA mindset. Just a word to be used in the event of a need.
A tool to be used.
Will attach to a host that fills any of the NA's
requirements for time fulfillment.
Will bleed you dry if you give them half a chance.
Has an abundance of reasons for why they hurt and exploit others.
The vast majority of NA's are not successful -
there are, of course, exceptions.
The lack of success begins to become apparent to the NA in their forties. Regardless, the realization
is generally insufficient to inspire change.
Generally, the NA will not even consider a change
in behavior until they've reached the bottom of the
barrel and only when the choices are life or death. Only then does salvation become a possibility.
At the root of all Non Ascendancy is Fear.
Generally a waste of time until the bottom of the barrel has been reached.
The NA can not find inspiration at the hands of a person
willing to be used by the NA.
The NA has no capacity for the appreciation of gifts offered by the well intended.
19. The NA serves only the 'ME'. 'WE' is not a possibility
unless it is in service to the 'ME'.
'YOU' exist only to the limit of the NA's 'ME'.
