Fear and mindfulness …

… Hell’s Bells. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

My strong suspicion is that the West’s “mental health crisis” is really a spiritual health crisis. Our prevailing secular, materialist ideology denies our true identity as God’s children, made in His own image and likeness. We see ourselves as trousered apes and meat computers. Our media and technology cause us to disscociate from our environment: the people, plants, animals, and objects all around us. We’re cut off from our fellow creatures—from Creation. We dissociate ourselves from Reality and collapse into subjectity, becoming easy prey to those fears which the Evil One plants within us.
