YOU ARE A CREATURE OF EMOTION
Most people believe that they are creatures of reason when
they are actually creatures of emotion.
If you were a creature of reason, then
changing only your rational mind would change your life.
You could solve all your problems by going to school and taking
a course in logic. Every problem would have a logical
answer. Drug and alcohol addiction would disappear,
because it doesn't make sense to destroy yourself with
chemicals. All forms of illogical and self-destructive
behavior would vanish when exposed to the power of reason.
Counseling would be easy, success would be guaranteed, and the
answers to all of life's problems would be found in logic.
Insight points you in the right direction
but doesn't give you the power to make the trip.
When I studied psychiatry in medical
school, I learned that giving insight to emotionally disturbed
patients often didn't solve their problems. Sometimes
there was marginal improvement in their symptoms, but cure was
rare. Counseling sessions were a never ending search for
critical insights that hopefully would result in improvement.
The quest for a critical insight was a
difficult trap from which to escape. Your mind tells you
if you can just get the insight you need, you can turn your life
around. Unfortunately, this was rarely the case.
Even when I discovered the critical insight, it rarely
transformed my patient's life. Insight may have pointed
the patient in the right direction, but it didn't give him the
power to make the trip.
