Because I've never really pondered things like disability, gays, soul mates etc. That suddenly started with listening to those recordings and it went even on during dream state. All stuff that had nothing to do with me but suddenly seemed to be relevant because it was talked to death on those recordings over and over again. So I stopped listening. Reading the books was a different experience, it's easier to skip the nonsense and it's not full of personal issues.
It is quite possible though to not see Jerry's circumstances as a 'disaster' at all. Again, as onlookers, we have no way of really knowing what was in Jerry's 'vibrational escrow' as Esther used to refer to all those manifest desires that were awaiting us in our vortex.
If someone has a deep desire to be completely free from attachment and they also have a desire to have perfect health, can you see how the desire to be free might take precedence and do so, using another strong, but not as strong desire of ours to enact it?
when our desire for freedom is very strong, then Everything that manifests that we do not consciously prefer, has been summoned by our desire for complete freedom...to know abiding peace and acceptance that requires nothing.
It is through experiencing those things that are (very) contrary to our conscious desires that we really learn how to let go and accept.
perhaps at the later phase of an exciting and well-lived life, Jerry was ready to face that final frontier of resistance to let go of all attachment while still physically alive....and it often seems that the only way to let go of all of it IS to experience something that is contrary to our conscious desires.
