therapy – the (new) opium for the masses

“you should fundamentally hate yourself in order to start moving beyond this tangeled, contracted mess called you. that is the awakening of discriminating wisdom that opens up the possibility of higher, wider, deeper states and stages.
you know, there’s that enigmatic statement of christ’s in the new testament: “he who hateth not his own soul cannot be my disciple.” of course that makes perfect sense, but it’s exactly what the therapeutic society does not want to hear or allow.
[…]
stop being so self-satisfied, forget therapy, and get back to hating yourself!”
