Job Posting

Talking with my patient who believes he is a prophet, which is why he doesn't need to take medication, I was reminded of my observation from decades ago that real prophets are usually eying the exits and looking for a way out of the job, if possible.  Volunteering for it is a strong suggestion of inauthenticity.

I have a similar sense with all of my youthful acquaintances who have elected to make their living in the following fields:

1) Yoga instructor.
2) Spiritual guide.
3) Medium (yes, really).
4) Seller of magic potions and elixirs -- er, I mean, "health products."
