The spirit or unconscious
Deeper still is the spirit or the unconscious. Freud coined the latter word to refer to a part of us that he encountered when working with various patients. The center of this part of you is that self you learned of as the original idea God had. This is the deepest part of you that has no end. When you visit this area of yourself, instead of being concerned about yourself, your concern is for the other. This is where you respond to beauty, truth, and justice. This is where your imagination is born, wells up, and bursts upward into your conscious self, and creativity finds its genesis.
Music, art, and even the aesthetics of mathematics find recognition here. So much gets generated in this deepest part of you, yet for many people their spirit, their center, is barely known to them. Most everyday life is lived at the emotional and conscious level. Relationships are contractual; events are judged by how they affect the person.
At the deepest part of yourself, it is the other that is important. Love is no longer contractual as at the level 43
of the soul. But it is absolute. Ask a parent. There are no conditions to a parent’s love. Awe at the world impacts you, and values provide dimensions to yourself.
That original idea of you being a good idea in the mind of God is growing, expanding, seeking outlets.
