This is an important point you make Roshan, that we tend to blame ourselves for the deficits of our culture. I often contemplate this.
A psychologist once said, ‘mental illness is the correct response to an unforgiving culture’.
And modern culture’s most unforgiving part is that it has a clear definition of and divide between winners and losers. But we all must fail at one time or another. We cannot win all the time.
So how do we handle life when the gates of failure open for us? It’s all over for some. For others, they connect with the dream-self and ask it to show the way.
Thanks for the book recommendation, Roshan — love the title.
