“The greatest hazard of all, losing one’s self, can occur very quietly in the world, as if it were nothing at all. No other loss can occur so quietly; any other loss – an arm, a leg, five dollars, a wife, etc. – is sure to be noticed.”
What is it to ‘lose one’s self’? From our perspective, it is disconnection – from feeling; from aliveness; from our senses and our bodies; from coherent thinking and deep-rooted ethics; within relationship; from community; from the natural world; from a spiritual dimension to experience – and this is the great sickness and lack in our world at present.
