INTERVIEW WITH Mike Leach on Metapsychiatry
Nancy Rosanoff interviews author Carol Adrienne (http://www.caroladrienne.com) about how to find more purpose in meaning in life. Adrienne discusses how life changes to make us grow and develop in sometimes unexpected ways. She reminds of of the hero's journey as described by Joseph Campbell.
Most people immediately can see that God has no dimensions—God is infinite presence. Now if God has no dimensions how can the image and likeness of God have dimensions? So this is sort of a koan. God is non-dimensional, but the image and likeness of God seems to be dimensional. Well, this is mind-boggling, is it not?
Do we forgive and forget? Do we condemn and punish? When respected loved ones reveal experiences of victimization and/or are exposed as sexual predators it is not possible to simply write off them off as“making a big deal out of nothing" or “evil.”
And when people are sexually drawn to one another, they are trying to realize an at-one-ment. This is just a symbolic representation of the real at-one-ment. It is not the real thing, and if you take it for the real thing, you will be left with an attachment and a lot of trouble.
Love is the very substance of life. Love and intelligence constitute the substance of Reality and we are the manifestations of this substance. So we are not really made of flesh and blood (as we seem to be), but we are made of love and intelligence. . .
Prayer can be thought of as a mental hygiene principle. Sanity depends on being in touch with Reality. Thus, prayer is an existential necessity. We are not talking here about religious prayer, which is mostly petitionary. We define prayer as a constant conscious endeavor to be aware of our place in Reality.
One core thought at the root of addiction is the urge for liberation, freedom and joy. This urge is from the soul, the depth of being. Confronted with the cultural, educational, familial ways of life that are often dismissive of this spiritual longing or relegate it to meaningless rituals and rules, the opportunity to escape to a "high" is welcome relief.
In what way can man find peace, assurance, freedom, gratitude, love, life in the midst of an epidemic of crime? Wherein lies safety?
Safety lies in understanding that the solution to the problem is not in society or in the police, but in consciousness. A certain quality of consciousness will create a predilection to victimization, and another quality of consciousness will create a sense of safety.
There is a saying, “Laws are made to be broken.” But if we understand God as an “Is system,” it will make no sense at all to violate it. For instance, if we know that gravitation is, it is clear that no one in his right mind would want to challenge it by jumping out of the window.
There are three frequent afflictions which people tend to suffer from: pride, ambition, and vanity. It is hard to measure which of these is worse, but it would seem that ambition is the most troublesome. . . It is full of frustration because if one succeeds, one gets sicker; and if one fails, one also gets sicker.
One of the most insidious forms of mental enslavement is the mesmerism of seriousness. It is insidious because it claims respectability. If we unmask seriousness, we find that it is a form of intimidation.
The point is to find the valid, intelligent, harmonious way of coping with life. . . . It is good to be good, right? Unbelievable as it sounds. People will say it is crazy to be good in a world that is so evil. But we say it is good to be good. It is not good to be judgmental and critical and vindictive and hateful and aggressive. Those things are not good for anybody.
