Joseph Campbell, Pathways to Bliss
“Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain and most fools do.” Ben Franklin
The CRITIC contrasted to the LIVING HUMAN BEING - how do we convert, how do we transform?
Gabriel Marcel. What does it mean to be "with" another in relationship? Participatory, part of a larger, part of the "between". Critic, complainer, imposing value judgements, I-process, GALSPEW seven deadly sins. What does it mean - giving to the world what we demand of it? The prideful person demands the world be different, demands of it, but does not see that they are part of the world, and have a responsibility to give to it, to root out in self what is wrong with the world in their own life and attitude. The vulture invades us, we worship its appetite.
