I’m fascinated by metanoia and its psychological implications. That such leeway is given for psychotic episodes, even encouraged, is amazing to me. Forgive me if I’m wrongly interpreting Carl Jung’s psychology. Yesterday’s homily focused on the concept, and so I have decided to look into it.
Of course, the theological meaning is quite different. Still, I want to explore metanoia as it pertains to my current situation. Come to think of it, metanoia either as repentance or as breakdown of the psyche, produces symphonies of curiosity, that ignoring such obvious writing prompts will be like spitting in the face of destiny. I exaggerate, but it’s not like you can stop me.
