Lipton’s Journal/January 26, 1955/312

From Project Mailer

It seems obvious that insanity is the result of irreconcilable S and H. The obvious case: burning sexuality in a terribly severe conscience. Which relieves me about my own sanity. For my S and H are comparatively compatible. For years the H has battered away at the S forming rationalizations which were close to the actuality of myself. There is hardly anything I could discover about myself today which would be unbearable. I think that is why, instead, I am feeling generally so much aliveness and lack of depression. The H finally made it, but by slow stages.
