Got to be careful with ye olde hope, more slippery than a bar of soap.
Not necessarily. The third route is a radically depersonalized psychic ontology, which is admirably withstanding trials thus far, all things considered.without some degree of hope, we end up wallowing in a festering pool of cynicism.
well have at it, then. I prefer to have some degree of hope.Not necessarily. The third route is a radically depersonalized psychic ontology, which is admirably withstanding trials thus far, all things considered.
That is, if one comes to grok that pathos is itself a function in a larger system, and that the horizons themselves aren't as bleak as pathos paints them as being, then persisting in a more or less pathically neutral capacity becomes more and more tenable. Also seems congruent with many of the central assertions of spiritual/mystical discourse throughout history, IE the bhagavad gita with Krisha explaining the difference between active and renunciative yogis, whatnot. The former embracing their roles in maya, despite being subject to currents and forces that threaten their balance, and the latter withdrawing inward to abstain from said currents.
edit: maybe "depersonalized" is not the proper word, in light of the bhagavad gita example, but I was writing spontaneously.
