Hell

20 October, 2009

“Each of us is responsible for one particular point in space and time in which our body and mind forms a link within the total network of existence.

“Whether our present consciousness of individuality is preserved in some dimension of existence after death or disappears completely, the unalterable fact is that our being will forever remain part of the warp and woof of what is. The more psychic energy I invest in the future of life, the more I become a part of it.

“Hell is the separation of the individual from the flow of life. It is clinging to the past, to the self, to the safety of inertia. What is diabolical is to weaken the emerging complexity by withdrawing one’s psychic energy from it.”

Mihail Csikszentmihalyi, ‘Flow’
