True Sanity (Laing)

True sanity entails in one way or another the dissolution of that false self competently adjusted to our alienated social reality, the emergence of the “inner” archetypal mediators of divine power, and through this death a rebirth, and the eventual re-establishment of a new kind of ego functioning, the ego now being the servant of the divine, no longer its betrayer.
