We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
"Religion" is like government in that it attracts people who want to control everyone and everything. Religious beliefs may be natural and inevitable in a human mind. If tomorrow all memory and all history of past religions and religious beliefs were wiped away within a year new religions would spring up. And within five years religions would cause fighting and religious leaders would become oppressive and controlling.
I read your article entitled "Our Search for Meaning" and feel that you have made a couple of errors in your interpretation of worship. First of all, there are several kinds of worship as expressed through prayers; blessing and adoration, petition, intercession, thanksgiving, and praise. Each kind of prayer has a different effect on the psyche. These prayers can be analyzed through transactional analysis to give the patient a profound insight into the nature of his or her unhappiness. The object, of course, is to change "worship" from a constant demand for petition and intercession; to a loving pattern of adoration and praise. This means developing a new life script.
And when you speak of the spiritual vacuum of modernism, and the lack of meaning in men's lives, please understand that this is not simply a byproduct of our culture. It is a deliberate effort to deny men the right to judge. For example, do you teach your patients about semantic space, and its relation to the Godhead? I bet not. How about transactional analysis? Logic? The meaning of colors?
As you see, you don't teach them much of anything. Instead, you allow them to flounder aimlessly with vague notions about "Jungian Psychology." So do your clients a favor: stop talking about trans-personal energy, and start actually teaching.
