Helplessness (8 of the Brain)
Confusion, panic and disorientation are the consequences of my helplessness and paralysis. I don’t look for the origins of this within, but project it onto the whole outside world, which leads me to feel powerless and manipulated, inner emptiness and a lack of orientation. My thoughts are shaped by ambiguity, and a certain absentmindedness leaves me unable to make clear decisions or clear statements. I’m perplexed and don’t know how to free myself from the situation. If I can’t perceive myself and can’t develop myself, or if I restrict myself, I’m powerless and feel helpless. I find out why I restrict myself and analyze my situation to get clarity and to orientate myself. This way I start to make decisions and come to conclusions that I also really stick to.
