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.”

M. Scott Peck, M.D., in “The Road Less Traveled and Beyond”
