Alot of people cpu with religious views would i'm sure have alot of respect for the sort of spiritual views you seem to espouse.My view is we're souls/spiritual Beings, that make a pre life plan & come into incarnation with some degree of choice & planning within overall circumstances. So i'd have to make some kind of distinction between more human/earthly law/matters & what i'd see as certain spiritual realities.
But in essence what i said - whatever our circumstances/difficulties, imo we're fully accountable/responsible for our life & actions. In an ultimate sense, No, i don't believe in diminished responsibility in mental health - we stand in judgement on ourselves.
i know that doesn't wash with a lot of people, but it's the way i see it. But then i don't have a religious view of the after life either.
What's your opinion on it all?
Of mice & men was a good book that asks the same question.
