From the Greek – to perceive, to think, the result of perceiving or observing – metanoia means “a change of mind.”

In Theology, metanoia is used to refer to the change of
mind which is brought about in repentance.

The prefix “meta-” carries with it other variants that are
consistent with the Eastern Greek philosophical mindset,
“Meta-” is additionally used to imply “beyond” and “outside of.”
E.g., metamorphosis as a beyond-change; and, metaphysics as
outside the limits of physics.

The Greek term for repentance, metanoia, denotes a change of mind, a
reorientation, a fundamental transformation of outlook, of an individual’s vision of the
world and of her/himself, and a new way of loving others and the Universe. In the words of a
second-century text, The Shepherd of Hermas, it implies “great understanding,” discernment.

In Carl Jung’s psychology, metanoia indicates a spontaneous attempt of the psyche to heal itself of
unbearable conflict by melting down and then being reborn in a more adaptive form.

the above link is incorrect. It takes you to talks by Alan Watts (Eastern Thought). They are great too.

Between ISM and Anarchy

ISM: Communism or Fascism, pick your poison, both created and cultivated by finance elite in an attempt to create a system of order over the masses void of justice as the center piece of order, and to establish a long lasting legacy of might as right. Histories of fascism and communism go deeper than 1920's Frankfurt School. The Civil War in the U.S.A. was an earlier proto model of the two systems being put into play with Lincoln playing the part of the Fascist and the Jefferson Davis as the Communist. Lincoln and his Industrialist supporters preferred to unleash the slaves from their responsibility, pay them a pittance and let them provide their own housing, food and health care, and rule over the lot with pestilence, poverty and police/military oppression; Jefferson Davis and his European Oligarchical supporters preferred complete control and management of every aspect of the slaves' lives (housing, food and health care) , and with chains and whips to keep measure. Total freedom, Anarchy, is the complete opposite of both systems (ISM). A balance between Anarchy and ISM is a Constitutional Republic which levels the playing field for all of us with a system of justice as our societal guide and allows the opportunity for any man to determine his own fate (note; many will succeed and many will fail).
