"Ramblings on the Psych Ward"

With each day of the world’s creation, there is a repetitive phrase: “it was good”.   


Why?



Let me speculate that the world, the essence of life, of human beings , is goodness.  The problem is that this goodness too often can get covered over.



“Look at all men favorably!”, the sages have told us.  Even those who have performed horrific acts still have a soul inside of them . 



As a psychiatrist, I have  often witnessed the impact on someone when you focus on their innate goodness rather than their negative traits. 


(Besides, when we see negative in others, it may well be our own reflection.


So be careful!)



Make the effort - practice, practice! - at viewing others through a positive lens.


And like magic, this will wonderfully affect them - as well as yourself.

Our soul is that still soft voice that we hear at those moments when we feel a profound sense of belonging.  The soul is hidden, within our body, but it is the essence of who we really are.  We are all searchers, yearning for connection. We can try to distract our lives with material stuff, but inevitably it won’t last long.  We wind up feeling a certain emptiness which can lead to all sorts of anxieties and depressions, and that’s one way to keep psychiatrists in business.

Healthy people confront their issues;


and confront them again;


and again.



Unhealthy people resign.
