Hi Alfred, All,

My dear Mr. Lehmberg, on the latest Pod-cast of Errol's SDI you
spoke of 'positive' and 'negative' takes by the
abductees/contactees, I'd like to toss my two cents into the hat
if I may.

Re. Abductees... For your consideration I offer a few points of
view that are often missed or misinterpreted:

Being upset or angry about being personally violated is not
necessarily a 'negative' take or response in the light of these
experiences. Properly channelled and directed anger _can_be_
empowering and therapeutic. At some point in the healing process
each must find a way to transmute the anger into something less
damaging to the internal ecosystem. But basically the appearance
of anger is all a part of a process that helps us to grow and to
cope with the impossible situation we find ourselves in.

That's 'positive'.

In reality it is the ones who are viewed as having a 'negative
attitude' toward their experiences (abductees) who are
demonstrating a healthy and positive psychological and emotional
response to what is a surreal set of experiences/circumstances.
The 'abductees' are the ones who _are_ in-touch with the reality
and personal ramifications of what is happening to them and to
their loved-ones.

They don't candy-coat the facts to make it more palatable.
They/we are facing the situation head-on and with our eyes wide
open.

Again, 'positive' behavior/response. Behavior and response that
demonstrates the awesome adaptability and resilience of the
human psyche.

On the other hand, the ones who are viewed as having a more
positive attitude toward their 'alien contact experiences' are,
from the viewpoint of the abductees, in a state of deep denial.
What do you know of 'Stockholm syndrome'? You know, when the
victims begin to identify with their own captors in
hostage/kidnap situations. Do a little homework on it. You'll
understand where I'm coming from when I say that the 'new-agers'
and the 'contactees' are the ones who have had a 'negative'
response to the experiences.

The abductees I have come to know, ones who have come forward
and put their family name, careers/jobs, reputations and
relationships with friends on the line, are IMHO among the most
courageous, well put together and genuinely strong individuals
anyone could ever want to meet. Not a 'negative-Nelly' among
'em. On the contrary, these are fighters who refuse to lay down.
Who refuse to succumb to hopelessness and helplessness. Who
fight back by speaking out and standing up to be counted. To be
scrutinized and at times ridiculed.

These abductees are genuine patriots. They put it all on the
line to tell the truth no matter personal cost.

"Abductees negative"? I beg to disagree my friend. I've got the
people to prove it. Anyone who has assumed that _I_ have a
'negative' take or attitude toward my experiences has badly
misread/misjudged me. Don't misread our strength for weakness. I
am/we are, (abductees) strong, positive individuals.

Warmest regards to you Alfred, and keep up the good work mons
ami.


Peace,

John Velez
Abductee
