An immersive outline for how to read the myth of my, your, and other people’s mind.
About Myths of Mind: Neil playfully but meaningfully exposes the inner mechanisms of our minds that gear us toward either connection or division, depending on our experiences and states of mind. He thoughtfully outlines what makes us, as individuals, primed for connection or disunion.
Relying on water metaphors, poetic prose, and his experience as a psychotherapist, Neil highlights the meaningful ways we can begin to examine our thought processes, and understand the processes of others, so that we can mend the incongruences between each other and move toward congruence not only with others but within ourselves.
His work insightfully, accessibly, and creatively provokes contemplation of the human condition and self-reflection on one’s own conditioning. During these turbulent times, his insights calm the waters we’re traversing and lead us to unity.
Introspective readers, learners, artists, and leaders, enjoy Out Lines!
Review: "The point in the book that had the biggest impact for me was on page 10, the sentence starting 'To me, the point of life is....' A brave, personal and direct statement that makes you trust everything Wright tells you for the remainder of Out Lines. He just lays it right out there, in a few words, his take on the most profound question we have as humans. If his aim was to inspire hope, he has done just that. Describing evolving the mythology of our minds as a process of freedom, and that being the point of our being, leaves no room for hopelessness. We can't do it wrong and fail - it's the process that is the freedom. At this time in particular, when we seem so divided, the idea of sharing myths and evolving as a collective reminds us that personal awakening is something that can grow once it's shared. Get on the boat.As a legal professional focused on evidence and rules, and, honestly, as someone who hates boats (!), I'm not sure I gathered from this book everything that Wright intended. Maybe I'll do another read, or some things may come more clear in another volume (which I'm so anxious to see). But I did catch the wave. I didn't just finish this book, but started a process. In my car with my husband, and in a text with my friend, I recognized corrective and incorrective myths along with them. And we rode the current! While I can't quite articulate what it was I understood or held onto, when I went back to my daily life, the new knowledge I gained from this reading was there. And I'm clearly in the same world, where Anchorman and Zach Galifianakis quotes sometimes can sum it all up. The nuances of language, three words strung together and other oddities, was dissonance I think Wright created on purpose, with the intent to slow us down to absorb concepts. Maybe not to get it all, easily, on the first read. That said, I do appreciate his keeping the rhetorical questions to a 'tasteful, palatable minimum'!And of course, at the end, comes the dedication to our shining hero(ine)s. Some will join us and some won't when we find our corrective paths - this shows us we have permission to shed that weight and find a current that suits. Clare Colburn in the movie Elizabethtown said, "You have five minutes to wallow in the delicious misery. Enjoy it, embrace it, discard it... and proceed." And proceed we will, along the current of our ever-changing corrective myths! She has led by example, regardless of who in her life chose to follow her.An inspiring and thoughtful read. I will be sharing Myths of Mind, and the myths in my mind, grow my own pod, and carry this out."
