I went to a psycho-therapist this afternoon. I realized that I don’t want anyone picking around in my psyche. I am a bright man. Blindingly bright perhaps. I don’t know anyone capable of helping me “heal”. Psychologically. Perhaps that is unfortunate. Maybe not. Established in Being, perform action. That is the formula for action. Action is what we are concerned with in our day to day life. Rest is the basis of activity.
Why is there no-one who can help me heal psychologically? Heal my mind. I don’t know if my mind needs healing. I’m very sensitive. Modern medicine, psychiatry, prescribes medicine to help people who are suffering. But modern medicine doesn’t heal. It only treats symptoms, like anxiety. Anxiety is natural. It is a natural response. The Soul makes the mind anxious when there is a threat. Stress is the threat. Fatigue is the threat.
Anxiety is the body’s reaction to a threat. The threat is perceived by the mind. Soul is the basis of the body and the mind. Soul is Existence, Being. I don’t know how individuals are created–individual souls. Atma-jiva. Being–being(s). I don’t think I’ve heard anyone explain that. Beings come from food. A being is soul, mind, and body. Soul is atma. An individual is a jiva.
Everyone is suffering. But suffering is foreign to life–foreign to God’s field.
Pain is an experience by the body or the mind. I think the soul experiences pain too, if it can’t alleviate the pain of the mind or body. The intellect decides. It decides whether to think or do this or that. The senses sense pain, of course. But pain could be subtler than the senses, if we accept the notion that there is mental pain.
Aparagya parad–the mistake of the intellect. Quitting time for today. May be continued.
