Jung Monday

The most intense conflicts, if overcome, leave behind a sense of security and calm that is not easily disturbed. It is just these intense conflicts and their conflagration which are needed to produce valuable and lasting results.

The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves.

Nothing has a stronger influence psychologically on their environment and especially on their children than the unlived life of the parent.

We cannot change anything unless we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses.

A man who has not passed through the inferno of his passions has never overcome them.


Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.

Brilliant post. This is exactly what I needed to read, right now.

Thanks for this!

I am getting more and more fascinated by two people now. Carl Jung, and Oscar Wilde.

And Remez Sasson. (Advaita philosopher. Not too well known.)

Hi MD,

Only yesterday, I read this passage somewhere on the net, but cannot understand it too well...can you explain it sometime, I mean, assuming it has any deep meaning that you might agree with.

I can't make head or tail of this:

Passage:
_______________________

Further, projecting high vibration energy at someone who is not ready for it may not be doing them any favors. There is a joke I use to illustrate the hazards of projecting light onto someone:

What is the worst, most terrible Chinese curse?

May you clear all of your karma by next week and become enlightened.

It is a curse because most people would not survive having all of their karma coming up in one week. The "growing pains" might overwhelm them. I know of one person who, with the best intentions, kept projecting unconditional love and light at a school principal who she felt was abusing her daughter. The man committed suicide.

To avoid this, make sure you do not send energy to someone without their consent.

Many thanks for a very interesting and positively reinforcing information blog and it fits in with the cards I drew today which were "Surrender and Release".
