No one is interested in overcoming alienation; the point is to plunge into it to the point of ecstasy. That is what holidays are for.

Rather than denying problems, focus inventively, intentionally on what solutions might look or feel like...Our mind is meant to generate ideas that help us escape circumstantial traps / if we trust it to do so.
