There and not there

One of the reasons that it is so difficult to talk about the mind or the psyche is that you cannot physically see or touch it. If you say it’s there as something tangible you won’t find it. If you say it’s not there you are a fool. It is both there and it’s not.
It is a transparency that you swim in. When it is dark it becomes opaque. You can’t see anything. It is like a solid constricting mass. But when it is clear and the light shines through you can look through it. You’ll be surprised by how far you can see and the bewildering array of laughing fish that live there.
