HOW TO KEEP OUT OF THE PSYCHIATRISTS' HANDS

is no wonder that an era when many are drifting into irreligion sees many also drifting into the care of psychiatry. The tragedy is that so often they find little help there.
Along with confidence in the basic significance of life goes faith that there is available power for living greater than our own. Demanding tasks and endurances plus an inner consciousness of inadequacy adds up to a breakdown. The strain of modern life makes interior reserves of faith and courage, stability and endurance, critically necessary.
The assurance of available power, so that a man knows he will have strength to do what he ought to do, and to stand what he must endure, explains those integrated, dependable, forceful, undiscourageable characters whom Ruskin describes: "Their power is not in them, but through them."
Where all this comes out seems clear. Nothing would do more to keep people from needing the help of psychiatrists than a renewal of intelligent, vital, personal religion. I am talking here solely about religion's essence-establishing in human hearts in this harassed world an inner sanctuary where tranquillity abides, driving out grudge-bearing hatred with magnanimous good will, cleansing the soul of unforgiven sins and opening doors of help to self-accusing consciences, releasing life from its egocentricity into worth-while endeavor to "make the most of our best for the sake of others," substituting for blighting cynicism a victorious faith in life's eternal meaning and purposefulness, and supplying interior resources to meet life's strain.
There would still be plenty of work for the psychiatrists. There are many deep-seated emotional disorders whose origins lie far beneath the level of the conscious mind, for which the victim is no more responsible than for some inherited, constitutional bodily disease. But the discovery of vital personal religion would save a lot of people from the psychopathic mess they are falling into.
