jss I think you are right. The direction of help for hunmaity as a whole needs to be something that speaks to the heart, not the mind. Really my post is just about where I, personally, stand a chance of making a difference. If I write poems about the pain of remembering child abuse, or my fury about what the psychiatry-model did to my body and life, I don't believe it would have any impact. But it is at least remotely possible I can make a difference with prose. I spoke too generally, most likely. In order for me to feel spiritually enlightened, I would need to feel more consistently accepting. Sometimes I'm there, but often I'm stuck in regret, fear, etc. Maybe I set too high a bar. I'm my own worst critic, after all. I do very much appreciate this discussion. Will
