Following on from my previous post (Shame: the Sequel) in which I said I’d discovered a blog (Peter Michaelson’s www.whywesuffer.com) that says what I want to say, here are some links and quotes that relate to earlier posts.
Previously I posted a post about what I call ‘conquistadors’: the memes that inhabit our mind and determine how we feel, how we think and how we behave.
Well, he’s said the same thing in his post, The Politburo in Your Psyche and he gives nice descriptions of the id, ego and superego.
I like this quote: ‘Evolution calls on us to overthrow this politburo and establish an inner democracy in which our president, our authentic self, wisely presides. Such consciousness is vital to our personal wellbeing and the public good.’
