    Psychiatrists' offices are full of patients who hate their parents and feel bound to them through guilt. Similarly, guilt between a husband and wife leads to ill-concealed hostilities.
    Nadia Rynskayahar citeretfor 4 år siden
    Causality is responsible for such emotions as guilt and shame, which lie at the core of all emotional disturbances.

    conflict between the ego and the body may be slight or severe: the neurotic ego dominates the body, the schizoid ego denies it, while the schizophrenic ego dissociates from it.

    One such experience will not lead
    Socratis Tilliroshar citeretsidste år
    An overemphasis upon the role of the image blinds us to the reality of the life of the body and its feelings. It is the body that melts with love, freezes with fear, trembles in anger, and reaches for warmth and contact. Apart from the body these words are poetic images.

    We cannot be human and not animal too
    James Junhar citeretsidste år
    The conceited person is preoccupied with his appearance; the vain person is obsessed by his appearance. This overemphasis upon appearance is an ego device to negate the importance of feeling
    James Junhar citeretsidste år
    The ego with its knowledge is shaky and insecure if it does not stand firmly upon the reality of the body and its feelings. When the ego roots itself in the body, the individual gains insight into himself. The deeper the roots, the deeper the insight

    Civilization has been a progressive effort to raise man above the animal level
    James Junhar citeretsidste år
    As long as the ego dominates the individual, he cannot have the oceanic or transcendental experiences that make life meaningful
    James Junhar citeretsidste år
    an ego dissociated from the body is weak and vulnerable, and knowledge divorced from feeling is empty and meaningless
    James Junhar citeretsidste år
    We are rediscovering the importance of the body after its long dethronement and exile by the ego
    James Junhar citeretsidste år
    the child is affected by his parents' feelings far more than he is by their actions. He is distressed by his mother's unhappiness, disturbed by her anxieties, and relaxed by her contentment, quite apart from any actions she may take. Parents who do not understand this principle are confused by their children's responses. They often complain, “I cannot understand my child's reaction. I didn't do anything to him.” The child reacts with his body to the body of his mother and not with his mind to her words or deeds

    When these feelings are released, the guilt disappears

    Shame is a conceptual emotion because it arises when bodily functions are judged by social values rather than biological ones
    James Junhar citeretsidste år
    Eating is socially acceptable, whereas defecation takes place in private. In our culture the face can be exposed with pride, while exposure of the buttocks is shameful. One may touch the nose in public, but not the genitals. These distinctions have a rational explanation. We admire those bodily activities that manifest the power of the mind or the ego. Bodily functions not subject to ego control and unavailable, therefore, for ego display are confined to the home or toilet. Broadly speaking, the functions of the upper half of the body have a higher social value than those of the lower half. Functions closer to the head are more egosyntonic than those farther removed
    James Junhar citeretsidste år
    Social living would be impossible without the concepts of guilt and shame. But when guilt and shame are extended to cover feelings as well as actions, the base for a joyful life is eroded
    James Junhar citeretsidste år
    Man is primarily an animal by virtue of birth. He is fundamentally an animal by virtue of his dependence upon the animal functions of his body
    James Junhar citeretsidste år
    He will feel ashamed of his body and guilty about its feelings
    James Junhar citeretsidste år
    It is not generally appreciated that knowledge has an inhibiting effect upon spontaneity and feeling. The story is told about the centipede who became paralyzed when he tried to think about which leg to move first. Whenever one has to think about how to act, the action is stiff and awkward. The overtrained child behaves like an automaton and loses his charming naturalness of manner
