Practicing Reconciliation: Love and Work

Ann Belford Ulanov

Because the psyche exists as unconscious and conscious kinds of mentation, we must include it if any gesture of reconciliation is to succeed. When we are grounded in awareness of psychic reality, a malignant chain of psychic causality can transform into a benign movement toward reconciliation with estranged neighbors, nations, and parts of ourselves. Inquiry into psychic roots ought to be accompanied by prayerful reception of what is communicating to us through our psyche. Religion names this reality and thus brings it closer as we appeal to God for help.
