The Antidote Is the Interior

Published July, 2024

Tumescent Mind

A primary marker of the tumescent mind is a sense of obligation. The tumescent mind works by creating a background smog of anxiety that makes it difficult to draw our attention to the interior world, where the antidote lies that is needed to cut through or prevent that smog from being created.

Interior World

The interior world operates like trees in the forest that photosynthesize light energy into chemical energy. But here, we are converting the smog of obligation into the oxygen of desire.

Challenge and Repulsion

The challenge in working with smog and turning into the interior world is that the sense of urgency to escape this feeling can act as a repulsion that sends us further out of ourselves.

Beauty and Meaning
