My experience of analysis and life after it cannot have been optimal....there wasn't that much life for me, or maybe I just couldn't bear it, but that's life I guess, though our kids are (currently) in good shape.

>I wonder maybe I should follow some spiritual path, to try to see my life in a different way.

Yes, of course you should, Ralph. You have some opportunities. I was able to listen to a teaching by some Rinpoche in a Tibetan Buddhist monastery in Kathmandu. It was absolutely lovely. Those Buddhists are crazy, I mean crazy good, about how the sense of identity arises out of a kind of greed, about how the desire for things in the world, or more especially (for me) the desire for an end to it all, was part of what was burning us up.

This is a particularly good and lucid book which I must get
"Foundations of Buddhism" by Rupert Gethin
