becoming free...

To Become Free in an Unfree Society
"Man can be physically ill; then the physician, the doctor is needed.
Man can be psychologically ill; then a little help can be given by Freud and Jung and others.
But when man is existentially ill, neither a physician nor a psychiatrist can be of any help. Existential illness is spiritual. It is neither of the body nor of the mind, it is of the total – and the total transcends all parts. The total is not just a composition, a composition of the parts, it is something beyond the parts. It is something that holds all the parts into itself. It is a transcendence.
And the illness is existential. Man suffers from a spiritual illness."
