Passion. need more or less?
"Depression is simply rage turned inward" Freud in Mourning and Melancholia
Perhaps it is in these ideas that we find a solution to our seemingly endless supply of mental health issues. Each of us needs to express more authentic passion. Our politically correct/suppressed culture is striving to be released. It is seeking a path.
We in the arts can provide exactly the channels necessary to engage and connect... in communities, in families, in churches. In this approach life becomes about finding excitement and expression rather than conformity.
Live vigorously and encourage those around you to do the same.
Thanks to Intellectual Takeout for spurring these words. Is Modern man suffering from a lack of passion?
