1) Practice Crystal-clear Subjectivity
Practicing limpid subjectivity means knowing how to wash and expose one's mind. Our mental hygiene, indeed, is very bad. We are not aware of the neuroses, frustrations, resentments, schemas and automatisms that drive us. These mental impurities stain our psyche as sweat and dirt dirty our body. They confine our life, our appreciation of the real, and especially our judgment, of ourselves or others. We know that it is healthy to clean our body regularly, but for now, we do not clean our mental life with the same diligence. How many humans think, learn, act and live with chronic mental grime, without being aware of it, because this grime only smells for the well-informed man?

On a smaller scale, but more insidious, the nerve pollution of large cities is also the source of a widespread mental crass: engine noise, invasive lights, congestion chronically dirty our psyche. But if we are able to shower before going to sleep, do we shower our minds?
