Faith and the Unconscious

The truth is that our unconscious minds are active, purposeful, and independent. Hidden they may be,
but their effects are anything but, for they play a critical role in shaping the way our
conscious minds experience and respond to the world.---Leonard Mlodinow


In order to grow in self-knowledge, the unconscious has to be accessed. When this is done, the injunction of Jesus to take care of the log in one's eye before you point to the splinter in another makes perfect sense. Self-knowledge allows us to wake up, to stop being a victim of what is being mirrored back to us, and to grow in humility. We can’t love our neighbors until we see ourselves and love what is shown to us. In the process, we find the number of our enemies and those who irk us less; because we begin to understand the difficulty of the road we each travel and the depth and complexity of our inner lives.Br.MD
