Psychomoralitics is a bold formulation of an ancient conceptualization that addresses integral human nature: that is, rational-volitional human nature, incarnational human nature, and vocational human nature as a seeker of truth. Psychomoralitics combines a Thomistic topography of the inner most person and the soul with the principles of natural law to provide a spiritual intervention for deep characterological transformation.
The soul-deep spiritual dynamics of the psychomoralitic process essentially entails the purgative abnegation of egositic excesses for an increased openness to reality. The psychomoralitic process successful entered into increases essential human well-being, or that which is uniquely human. Concomitant to this growth in essential human well-being, even if without formal intent or claim, there is a resultant diminishment of the mental and behavioral disordered symptomology that the mental health profession defines itself by.
Psychomoralitics has a unique but harmonious dynamics in comparison to traditional schools of spiritual direction and may serve as a remedial prerequisite for traditional spiritual direction and has a unique emphasis. The need for psychomoralitics is due modern man's removal from natural law and thus reality that is made especially grievous with the advent of technarcistic man, who in his soul deadening technology and subsequent narcissism is ill prepared for and inured to the seeds of reality much less the Gospel.
Psychomoralitics prepares the soil of the soul so that spiritual seeds of reality--both natural and revealed--can germinate, take root, and flourish. This is done by the cultivation of the psychomoral realm so that the soul is open to reality and cleansed of that which would impede the flourishing of this openness. Psychomoralitics then is often a necessary remedial prerequisite for traditional spiritual direction, which then weeds the soil of the soul and prunes and nurtures the now sprung psychomoral plant of essential human-well being.
Hear ye: Behold, the sower went out to sow. And whilst he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the birds of the air came and ate it up. And other some fell upon stony ground, where it had not much earth; and it shot up immediately, because it had no depth of earth. And when the sun was risen, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away. And some fell among thorns; and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit. And some fell upon good ground; and brought forth fruit that grew up, and increased and yielded, one thirty, another sixty, and another a hundred. MK 4:16-20
