This chapter cites cases of physical and mental disorders of psychic origin, due to the conflict between the spiritual instincts and cravings of the unconscious mind and the moral standards of the conscious mind. The chief characteristic of the unconscious mind is its desire to bring happiness into the conscious life of its owner. Happiness may be of two kinds, possessive or creative. Possessive happiness is concerned with security, the avoidance of danger or discomfort, the enjoyment of pleasure through the senses, and it creates dependence. Creative happiness is concerned with adventure, the conquest of danger or difficulties, the pleasure of achievement, and it creates independence. The unconscious mind, being instinctive and unreasoning, does not distinguish between the two forms of happiness. It seeks blindly the well-being of its possessor; it resents any interruption of his pleasures, any opposition to his desires.
