The opportunity to ‘discover-decide’ why ones soul is bleeding allows a person to make sense of the situation.
In this ‘discovering-deciding’, do we lead, as in creating a meaning, or do we follow as in discovering a meaning? Both take place a posteriori; events have already occurred. It is a matter, now, of who gets to say why things have happened, I or destiny?
Which of the two paths to peace we take, in assisted mental metabolism or therapy, is of no functional importance; psychology does not reach out to the soul, it is about helping a mind in anguish.
When you carry a burden, meaning is helpful, whether you make it up or find it.
I usually tell myself: “I found it”
“O Fortune, like the moon
you are changeable,
and then soothes
as fancy takes it”
FROM: O Fortuna – Carmina Burana – by Carl Orff
