Wendell Johnson said that we are all born into a culture/society/family that has a certain idea of how things ought to be. But it is never articulated as such. Everybody just knows how things are supposed to be done, and how they are not supposed to be done, but the rules are never spelled out, explained. We are always crossing lines we did not know were there, and being chastised, punished, humiliated for not knowing what no one ever told us, until we get, eventually, some vague, general, idea of what the idea is. Ideas permeate the culture/society/family of which we are apart, and impose their weight and will upon us unconsciously, and we live burdened with things we don't know are there. In light of this, Johnson formulated what he called "The IFD disease," for Idealism (the way we are-- the way things are--supposed to be), Frustration (With our inability to be, or to get things to be, what we, they, are supposed to be, and Demoralization, a low-level-- or not-so-low-- sense of depression/anxiety/panic stemming from not knowing what's wrong or what to do about it, and no way of finding out. This is a spiritual problem requiring a spiritual solution, and spiritual in this sense has nothing to do with theology, and everything to do with the world of "the spirit," the invisible world of intangibles that are felt/intuited/known that the world of thinking/logic/reason cannot enter-- like "ideas" that control our lives which are assumed but never clarified, specified, identified, discussed, talked about, because, as Heinrich Zimmer said, "The best things can't be talked about/articulated, and the second-best things create misunderstandings (because they try to articulate what cannot be articulated in a 'You have to know what I mean in order to understand what I am saying' kind of way) which leaves us talking about the third-best things: News, weather, sports, opinion, and gossip). Which leaves us with having to become spiritual in the right kind of way--enlightened/illumined/awake/ aware/tuned-in/realizing what's what and what is going on around here and what to do about it. The sooner we get to work, the better for all of us.
