The obedience pattern: Gendlin on Spirituality
Tina Miller, MA,CFLE stashed this in psychology
Maintaining myself against the super-ego requires a lot of strength. "I" must grow stronger. Also, to listen inwardly to a quieter place, I must become able to tolerate silence and murkiness for some moments now and then. Intent listening is active and requires a strong ego. On the other hand, to listen I must stop talking all the time and let the reigns loose, give up directing everything.
