Disintegration and Reintegration in Spiritual Lives
Perhaps a foretaste of Phil's upcoming Dark Night of the Soul class:

(See Chapter V, Multilevel Disintegration in Mystical Lives)

Satomi Myodo, who was unknown to me on Wednesday,
lost her marbles as a Zen student, and found herself
a few fries short of a Happy Meal, which would be really funny if I had not traveled the border lands

I am not a psychologist, nor do I play one on TV, but I do plan to read Passionate Journey, an account of Myodo's experience.

I have done alot of primal type screaming when I get to feeling this way, and so far no white coats
called in by the neighbors. What's real fun is when someone catches you in a deep process out of doors, or screaming in the car.

Breaking Up and/or Breaking Down is Hard to Do. Frowner Smiler

I once listened to an interview with the President
of AOL and he said that what he was up to was like tearing down a seven storey building while putting another in it's place.

I'm not sure on how this is accomplished, but trust that God's ways are far above my own...

Happy New Year
