BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, January 6th, 2014 by M. Scott Peck, M.D. in THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED & BEYOND

“Nothing will ever remove
all mystery. But I believe at least part of the answer to these
questions can be found in the Latin derivation of the very word
“conscious,” con-scire, which literally means to “to know with.” What a
strange derivation! To know with?  To know with what?  I suggest that
the answer is to know with God. I have said that psychological disorders
primarily have their root in consciousness rather than in our
unconscious, that “nasty” material is contained in our unconscious only
because our conscious mind refuses to deal with it.

If we can
deal with this unpleasant stuff, then our unconscious mind offers an
absolute garden of delights through we which we are connected to God. In
other words, I believe that God reveals Herself to us through our
unconscious if we are willing to be open to it, and become conscious of
its wisdom.”
