‘Madness does not exist. It is just a way of feeling when we discover that there is a serious discrepancy between what we thought our lives would be, and what they actually are.’
Much of modern psychology borrows extensively from more ancient ways of thinking and being such as Buddhism. ‘New’ emphases are on acceptance, mindfulness, presence, and a connection to a person’s individual concept of the ‘spiritual’ element within them. I believe these can be relevant and useful in our modern world to help us cope with the fast pace of work, relationship and family life.
