The answers come when you surpass them.
When you feel good, answers come without effort.
Last night I managed to feel better by letting go of my old internal struggle, and within minutes I discovered something remarkable.
If you’ve been following my blog you’ll know I’ve been obsessed with mysticism for more than twenty years, and in the past week or so I’ve been writing about disorganised attachment.
So imagine how I felt when I came across this study into mystical experiences among people with disorganised attachment.
The paper argues that people with disorganised attachment have a propensity for mystical experiences due to trait absorption.
I just found my deeply personal lifelong efforts to transcend the paradoxical injunction of disorganised attachment written up in a Swedish psychology paper.
The authors are at pains to say this doesn’t delegitimise mystical experiences, in fact they argue it may be a worthy therapeutic goal.
For me it validates my deeply felt need for transcendence, and at the same time it helps me release that need a little.
Once again I credit my persistent work at feeling better for this insight. I can enjoy the insight because I feel better, not the other way around.
