Suppression of the Sublime

My problem is that my training as an analyst does not suffice to unlock the riddle of existence. While I believe that Freudian subconscious is the source of our biological and atavistic drives, I cannot also ignore the mystic’s description of the superconscious as the source of our highly evolved impulses. This means that one suffers not only from the repression of one’s biological drives but also can suffer from suppression of the sublime (Reddy, 1988).

This also means that to increase my repertory of counseling skills, I need a framework of reference where the subconscious and the superconscious are both accommodated in their proper places. This pursuit leads me to search for a model of Integral Psychotherapy (90). Soumitra Basu, Consciousness and its transformation

  1. The best "model" of therapy is Esochology, but it is not a model that can be grasped by the intellect [or thoughts fed to the brain by the MIND whose intention is to prevent the disocery of the MIND itself].

    So, for those "ready" to let go of the physical plane delusional notion that one can "control" life, there is Esochology.
