day 76

what is restored in our, my, step two?

sanity, my ‘nous,’ my heart’s thinking.

the Greek defines ‘nous’ as,

Nous, (Greek: “mind” or “intellect”) in philosophy, the faculty of intellectual apprehension and of intuitive thought. Used in a narrower sense, it is distinguished from discursive thought and applies to the apprehension of eternal intelligible substances and first principles.

Nous is both intellectual and intuitive. Both thoughts and heart feelings. Nous is the movement of picking up my leg, bending my knee, and taking my next step. A second step. A step to sane nous thinking.
