"Clinging to self-imposed rules gives a man at least temporary assurance that the symbolic order is whole and that it might have endowed him with phallic power. … What a man fears is that by losing the routine structure of his life, … he will … be devoured by the object of his desire. Even if a man actually abandons his old partner for the new one, he will be quick to form another structure in his life, which might further keep his desire impossible to satisfy."

"Instead of checking my email in the 5 minutes between therapy clients, I spend a few seconds watching out my window. I usually watch the leaves fluttering on the big trees across the street."
"Simply enjoy your space for as long as you want, allowing it to become more tangible and develop beyond what you initially noticed. When you are finished in your space, take some deep breaths and leave."
"Pick up a raisin and hold it in the palm of your hand. Look at it. Examine it. Describe the raisin. What does it look like? What color is it?"
"Something’s quiet now. Is it inside my head as we’re looking at the mirror together?"
