I dozed until midnight, then adrenalin and heat fired up my body for the race, the chase, the battle in the jungle. Only I'm not in the jungle; I'm in bed trying to sleep. I'm having a major argument with my body: What is wrong with you?! Can't you feel the fatigue? Why are you flooding me with all this energy? Body: Hey, it's not my problem; you're the one with all the worries and ISSUES that keep me up. Mind: You have a lot of nerve calling me out on ISSUES when these things wouldn't even bother me if I weren't flooded with adrenalin and cortisol and whatever else you're doing to me.
Most functional people would have grabbed a cab straight to a psychiatrist for Ambien.
Psychology + Zen = Philosophy and methods to relieve suffering and reveal happiness.
Psychology: We project onto others what we reject in ourselves. Some call it a Shadow. Healing comes from making the unconscious conscious, taking responsibility for our projections, integrating what is split off as our own thing.
Zen: There is no separate self. When we can be at one with every aspect, then we belong everywhere and we reject no one.
We heal the world by becoming intimate with our whole selves.
