Are You Sane?

Sanity lies somewhere between the inhibitions of conventional morality and the looseness of the extreme impulse.


The point is not to convert anyone to our view, but rather to help people wake to their own view, their own sanity.

There are many who might think Björk Guðmundsdóttir wacky and a bit out there. Yet she expresses herself, well. It can be quite guttural and many “civilised” people are perhaps shocked. But according to Trungpa she is sane.

So many people are repressed, and this state of repression can be seen to be the epitome of sanity. Which is a bit sad. All that bottling-up, all those massive social inhibitions brought about by social conditioning, is that really sanity?

So maybe there are many definitions of sanity. If you want to explore your own sanity you could follow the link to my Loony Quiz and see if you deem yourself to be sane.

So, one question only:

Am I a sane human being?
