Geology Psychology

©1993 Susan Noyes Anderson

In Geology Psychology,

the elements are real.

You dig down deep, then analyze

each feeling that you feel.

Is it cold or hard or shiny,

satin smooth, sandpaper rough?

Is it dense or is it porous?

Pure, or mixed with other stuff?

Is it fossilized? Volcanic?

 Did it simmer underground,

moving slowly toward the surface

till the day that it was found...

 acted on by heat and pressure

radiating from the core,

fiery source of hidden answers

most of us are looking for?

It’s Geology Psychology.

It helps you to get real.

(Assuming you can figure out

exactly what you feel.)

“The only journey is the journey within.”
Rainer Maria Rilke

“Unexpressed emotions will never die. They are buried alive...” 
Sigmund Freud

Your vision will be come clear only when you can look into your own heart.
Carl Jung

I did awful in my geology class in college, but I enjoyed it!

karen said...

Sounds easy enough, doesn't it? But it's very difficult to dig deep and be totally honest with yourself.

Dixie Mom said...

Awesome! I think that's the whole key! I loved geology in college....I'm pretty good at self diagnosing my own issues as well. Psych doctors have told me that I don't need them because I seem to do a good job thinking my way through my own issues and resolving things quite well. Hmmm...maybe I should have been a geology psychologist. :)

Brian Miller said...

nice...sometimes you just got to dig deep and see what you find at the heart...smiles....some pretty cool pics too...

Splendid Little Stars said...

wonderful post! The photos are lovely.
dig deep and hopefully discover much beauty within.

yaya said...

Digging deep is good but sometimes the hole is so deep it all caves in on you. Great pics to go with a very thoughtful post Sue!

Donna said...

You are one deep thinker, Sue and I am always impressed by that. No more than impressed.

Thanks you for your encouraging comments of late...they keepme going!!

Karen S. said...

This was just amazing. It seems sometimes, the more I dig, the more I discover I haven't gone far enough yet!

Annmarie Pipa said...

lots to see and think about here!! I just finished reading Sigmund Frued...not to sure I believe what he says anymore!

Karen Mortensen said...

Wow. That was good.

Amy said...

I love the imagery! You are just as much a poet with the images you find as you are with your words. Simply beautiful. Meaning it is simple, and beautiful because of its simplicity. And we don't even need to talk about how much I love the words and message! That is always a given when I visit your site.

LeAnn said...

You continue to amaze me with your thoughts and the pictures were awesome. Oh, if I just had a little bit of your talent; I would be singing which I can't do either. I will just covet you and then hope to have a talent like this in the next life.

Grandma Honey said...

wow, what a combination of words and pictures!

Judie said...

Sue, I agree totally with LeAnn. Your writing talents know no bounds.

Hey Sue, that was pretty cool! Some great images in there too...I guess my G post is about geology too...I just hadn't thought about it (being that I'm late, I hadn't thought about much of anything other than trying to get it posted...LOL).


Ames said...

Once again you pulled off a beautiful work of art! You are the master of words Sue!~Ames

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

I always find what I am looking for when I visit your site. Like I said your an amazing woman.
Love ya

VK said...

The pictures are amazing in this post. And to go along with your wonderful words.
Thank you

Really beautiful and precise!! GREAT! I always love catching up on your posts...they make me think, they make me laugh, sometimes they made me cry. Oh, what you do to my emotions!! :)

KDL said...

Great photos - especially love the lava shots.

Caroline said...

I feel like I am on a journey right now, Sue. I am actually being paid for some of my craft projects and while that is nice, it also puts pressure on me to produce. We could definitely benefit from the extra money (the kids always need shoes!) but in the same note, it means that I feel a little more stretched with my time. Finding the balance is always tricky. I've been praying so much lately for guidance and I just want to keep the kids a focus of my work, if that is even possible.

Sorry, not sure why I just rambled all of that here. But your beautiful words and poetry just brought that out of me.

Sending a hug to you, Sue. If I don't say it enough, I love your bog so much. It feels so cozy here. :)

Jenny said...

Sue! What a grand post!

Hello! Hello!

I'm wading my way through new technology and catching up.

This was wonderful. I can see you writing this now! What fun!

Thanks for such a grand link to Alphabe-Thursday's letter "G".

As always, you are just GREAT!
