“Don´t you think
that if I was mistaken
I would realize it?”
que si no estuviera en lo correcto
me daría cuenta?”
“Tror du ikke
at hvis jeg ikke havde ret
så ville jeg indse det?”

We should take care not to make the intellect our god; it has, of course, powerful muscles, but no personality.
The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.
Reason dreams of an empire of knowledge, a mansion of the mind. Yet sometimes we end up living in a hovel by its side.
Reason has shown us our capacity for power, both to create and to destroy. Yet how we use that power rests on our deeper capacities which lie beyond the reach of reason…

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”
