We are told (by Rambam, I think) that if we are conscious of God constantly, we will be safe.
"...existential psychology recognizes that for man, the only 'norm' can be creativity, some form of self-transcendence." (C. Wilson)To transcend the self - is this to come in contact with Godliness? But to create is to feel God-like -- and it necessitates a powerful and focused self, a self that hears all of its own voice. How is it possible to clearly attend to that voice and, simultaneously, be conscious of God?
