Understanding Psyche

Psyche: via Latin from Greek psukhē ‘breath, life, soul’.

Psyche is present before thought and the idea of a self-image. Psyche is consciousness itself, although there can be other interpretations. Once we adhere to an interpretation, however, we also create and maintain our psychological profile – a self, a mental characteristic, an attitude. We downgrade the breath of life into a concrete being of likes and dislikes. We fossilise.

Psyche or consciousness is fluid and free of contrivances, but became excited about being free and therefore looked for more stimulation. We can, at any moment, return to our natural state of contemplative clarity and see what is actuallynecessary in our life. Psyche wants to return to its natural state; the equilibrium of happiness.
