for an exercise in class yesterday we were asked to do some mirror writing. i immediately thought about the flip side, the dark side of spiritual care. is it possible or indeed necessary to ask why people want to be spiritual carers. misschien is er een leegte in hen? or maybe they enjoy the power it gives them? and i wrote this:
it is quite uncanny reading it back: it’s as if someone else wrote it - but you know you did write it. it reminds me of when you write something in the middle of the night when there is a dream you want to remember, and then you find it next to the bed in the morning and you don’t remember writing it. it’s like a message from the unconscious - from the other side.
