We cannot change anything until we accept it. — Carl Jung
Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside dreams, who looks inside, awakes. Carl Jung
"Emotion is the chief source of all becoming-conscious." - Carl Gustav Jung
The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed. -Carl Jung
"As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being" - Carl Jung
Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.–Carl Jung

[Carl Jung and the most essential causes and conditions of dream processes.] Dream processes follow from several causes and conditions. There are about five different possible sources: 1. They can stem from somatic sources: bodily perceptions, states of illness, or uncomfortable body postures. They can be bodily phenomena that, for their part, are caused themselves by quite unconscious psychical processes. The ancient dream interpreters made a great deal of the somatic source of stimuli, and this explanation is still frequently found today. Experimental psychology still takes the view that dreams always have to originate in something somatic. This is the well-known view of the dream: one ate too much before going to bed, lay on one’s back or on one’s belly, and therefore had that dream. 2. Other physical stimuli, not from one’s own body but from the environment, can have effects on the dream: sounds, stimuli from light, coldness, or warmth. I would like to give you an example from the French litera ...
Give me Carl Jung, Maslow, Adler, Brizendine, or R. D. laing any day! Sheesh!
“Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better take things as they come along with patience and equanimity. — Carl Jung
"If I know a thing, then I know a thing. I don't need to believe it." - Carl Jung

Yes you are! But it's Fassy! I loved Fassy in 'A Dangerous Method' as Carl Jung :)
Two weeks ago today I had an incredible Near Death Experience in which Jay Adams was holding out his hand to usher me into rock and roll surfer/skateboarder heaven. It was all gleaming white and glorious and there were many people there including my Daddy and Steaming Steve Clark but I chose not to go just yet. Jay looked young-like he does here and Steve looked like he did when I met him in 1983. So I know what awaits me and, much like Carl Jung I am sort of p.o'd about coming back in a way but figure there must be something really important that I still have left to do so I'll wait to hang with my friends and loved ones until the time is right. God Bless them all.

Psychology and End-Times Mysticism August 14, 2014 BY: DR.DAVID CLOUD   The following is an excerpt from our new book The God of End-Times Mysticism:   Psychology has been permeated with mysticism since its inception in the 19th century.    Carl Jung   Carl Jung (1875-1961), the founder of analytical psychology, has been called “the psychologist of the 21st century” (Merill Berger, The Wisdom of the Dreams, front cover.” Jung (pronounced Young) has been influential, not only in society at large, but also in the New Age movement and within almost all aspects of Christianity. Jung has influenced both modernists and evangelicals. His writings are influential within the contemplative movement. He has been promoted by Paul Tillich, Morton Kelsey, John Sanford, Thomas Moore, Joseph Campbell, John Spong, Richard Foster, Agnes Sanford, and Gary Thomas, to name a few. Jung’s psychological typing provides the underpinning for the Personality Profiling part of Rick Warren’s SHAPE program, which is u ...

The Jungian interpretation: times of renewal and “rebirth” For influential psychologist Carl Jung, 20th century dream analyst, having teeth falling out in dreams symbolizes the birth of something new, although it may entail some tension and it may be a painful process. The dream usually relates to emotions currently experienced as you are go through changes in your life, such as moving, changing jobs, ending relationships or undergoing periods of personal growth. THIS IS SO ON POINT!! I love reading behind Carl Jung anyway.
Did you know that what set Carl Jung off on the track to think outside the box was an event that took place early in his therapeutic practice, when a patient shot himself in the forehead Carl Jung woke up that night with a dull pain as if a bullet had entered his forehead. I just learned about this. P.s., this is an example of the non-locality of consciousness across space & time.
Rethinking James... "The unconscious is where it has always been on the edge of consciousness, woven into consciousness, where we do not look or do not want to see. The unconscious is around us. We are immersed in the psyche. As alchemists insisted, the potential gold is in bad waste of what we have on hand. Working this r"prima materia" has always been the real unconscious task of the artist who not only expressed his personal suffering, but reflected the torment of the anima mundi, the suffering in the roots. I mean artifex for the artist, the creator, be it artist, alchemist or analyst. One who collects the wood carried by the current, its cacophonous, pieces of bricolage and returns this unconscousness to its roots. The artifex works with the soul in the anima mundi. " (James Hillman) I believe that James Hillman was all of this . James Hillman as Carl Jung, student and teacher of each other, embody what the Zen master Gempo Yamamoto says: "At the age of sixty years, we are more efficient to fifty; at ...
At times I feel as if I am spread out over the landscape and inside things, and am myself living in every tree, in the splashing of the waves, in the clouds and the animals that come and go, in the procession of the seasons. There is nothing…with which I am not linked. —Carl Jung
So true. Know and be yourself. “Each of us is like all other people, like some other people, and like no other person.” ~ Carl Jung
I have all my 1962 - 1972 Clients who are undergoing a full blown Psycho/Spiritual Death-Rebirth Transformation Crisis read this before I begin my consultation: Every creative person is a duality or a synthesis of contradictory aptitudes. On the one side he is a human being with a personal life, while on the other side he is an impersonal, creative process… The artist is not a person endowed with free will who seeks his own ends, but one who allows art to realize its purposes through him. As a human being he may have moods and a will and personal aims, but as an artist he is ‘man’ in a higher sense–he is ‘collective man’–one who carries and shapes the unconscious, psychic life of mankind. To perform this difficult office it is sometimes necessary for him to sacrifice happiness and everything that makes life worth living for the ordinary human being. Carl Jung
In his classic, provocative work, Dr. Carl Jung-one of psychiatry's greatest minds-argues that the future depends on our ability to resist society's mass movements.

“In so far as analytical treatment makes the "shadow" conscious, it causes a cleavage and a tension of opposites which in their turn seek compensation in unity. The adjustment is achieved through symbols. The conflict between the opposites can strain our psyche to the breaking point, if we take them seriously, or if they take us seriously. The tertium non datur (there is no third) of logic proves its worth: no solution can be seen. If all goes well, the solution, seemingly of its own accord, appears out of nature. Then and then only is it convincing. It is felt as "grace." Since the solution proceeds out of the confrontation and clash of opposites, it is usually an unfathomable mixture of conscious and unconscious factors, and therefore a symbol, a coin split into two halves which fit together precisely. It represents the result of the joint labors of consciousness and the unconscious, and attains the like ness of the God-image in the form of a mandala, which is probably the simplest model of a concept ...

It is one of the most clear and comprehensive summaries of perennial philosophy ever revealed; hence its enduring value is subject not only to India but to all of humanity." ~ Aldous Huxley "The Bhagavad-Gita is a true scripture of the human race a living creation rather than a book, with a new message for every age and a new meaning for every civilization." ~ Rishi Aurobindo "The idea that ...

It was Carl Jung who first said "What you resist persists" and many teachers have expanded that by going on to say "What you resist persists...and what you accept changes." Using an understanding of Universal Law, let us have a look at how this theory works and how it affects us in day-to-day life.

Water is the commonest symbol for the unconscious. The lake in the valley is the unconscious, which lies, as it were, underneath consciousness, so that it is often referred to as the ‘subconscious,’ usually with the pejorative connotation of an inferior consciousness. Water is the ‘valley spirit,’ the water dragon of Tao, whose nature resembles water- a yang in the yin, therefore, water means spirit that has become unconscious.” (Carl Jung, CW 9i, para 40)
We have, therefore, two kinds of thinking: directed thinking, and dreaming or fantasy-thinking. The former operates with speech elements for the purpose of communication, and is difficult and exhausting; the latter is effortless, working as it were spontaneously, with the contents ready to hand, and guided by unconscious motives. The one produces innovations and adaptation, copies reality, and tries to act upon it; the other turns away from reality, sets free subjective tendencies, and, as regards adaptation, is unproductive ~Carl Jung; Two Kinds of Thinking; para. 20.

Sharing Carl Jung's picture and his quote, and a visual summary of his book by the artist Austin Kleon.
Psychologist Carl Jung has waxed lyrical about the elegance of the sari : "It would be a loss to the whole world if the Indian woman should cease to wear her native costume. India is practically the only civilized country where one can see on living models how woman can and should dress". A charming folktale explains the origin of the Sari as follows: "The Sari, it is said, was born on the loom of a fanciful weaver. He dreamt of Woman. The shimmer of her tears. The drape of her tumbling hair. The colors of her many moods. The softness of her touch. All these he wove together. He couldn't stop. He wove for many yards. And when he was done, the story goes, he sat back and smiled and smiled and smiled". Some costume historians believe that the men's dhoti, which is the oldest Indian draped garment, is the forerunner of the sari. Till the 14th century the dhoti was worn by both men and women. Thereafter it is conjectured that the women's dhoti started to become longer, and the accessory cloth worn over the sh ...
Psychologist Elaine Aron's research on a temperament category she describes as the "highly sensitive person" (HSP) has been gaining increased attention in recent years, and giving many people a big "aha" moment. Could you be among the 15-20 percent of the population she believes make up this group? I've learned that I am, and finding this out has changed the way I look at...everything. When I was a kid, the taste of many foods was unbearably intense, and certain sounds were, too. I had a vivid imagination and experienced acute awareness of emotions — both my own and those of others. Yet I was not shy. Sometimes I would get so overstimulated I would find myself talking constantly, a tendency that earned me the nickname "Loquacious Lynn" from my mother and demerit points in school. I was transfixed by odd things: once, at summer camp, I stood paralyzed by the side of a stream, knowing that when I reached the other side I would be older and could never reverse the flow of time. I felt and saw things that e ...
June 6th: Patrick Henry asked for liberty of death-- he also asked for mercury, so he received the latter. Carl Jung changed his archetype to D,E,A,D on this day. It is one of extreme introversion. Seriously, he doesn't ever come out anymore. Robert Kennedy made Sirhan Sirhan a patsy for the Rosicrucians. Marvin Isley quit shouting and laid Between the Sheets, of his coffin.
June 6, 1961, Carl Jung, Freud's antithesis, died. He helped me interpret my dreams after reading "Man and His Symbols".
The sun is not only beneficial, but also destructive; hence the zodiacal sign for August heat is the ravaging lion which Samson slew in order to rid the parched earth of its torment. Yet it is in the nature of the sun to scorch, and its scorching power seems natural to man. It shines equally on the just and the unjust, and allows useful creatures to flourish as well as the harmful. ~Carl Jung; CW 5; Symbols of Transformation; para 176.
GMT Cinema – Actor/Director profile – Tom Laughlin AKA Billy Jack. In lieu of my experience earlier in the week I thought this was a good time to highlight one of the most interesting auteur directors cinema has ever seen. Tom Laughlin is best known for the 4 Billy Jack movies. – Born Losers – Billy Jack – Trial of Billy Jack and Billy Jack goes to Washington. Tom and his wife Delores Taylor products this quartet of movies featuring Billy the half breed Vietnam vet who is force into standing up for those abused by the America system. But Tom and Delores’ accomplishments go far beyond the silver screen. They actually owned a school much like the school Billy defends in the movies. Tom was a follower of Carl Jung and was a pioneer in domestic abuse counseling. Tom wrote several books on the subject as well as a book on how to beat cancer. Tom’s philosophy was that anything could be cured with counseling, even abusers. It was Tom’s belief that counseling was part of the human condition ...

[Carl Jung on Prophetic Dreams.] Just as memories that have long since fallen below the threshold are still accessible to the unconscious, so also are certain very fine subliminal combinations that point forward, and these are of the greatest significance for future events in so far as the latter are conditioned by our psychology. But no more than the science of history bothers itself with future combinations of events, which are rather the object of political science, can the forward-pointing psychological combinations be the object of analysis; they would be much more the object of a refined psychological syntheticism that knew how to follow the natural currents of libido. This we cannot do, or only badly; but it happens easily enough in the unconscious, and it seems as if from time to time, under certain conditions, important fragments of-this-work come to light, at least in dreams, thus accounting for the prophetic significance of dreams long claimed by superstition. Dreams are very often anticipation ...
It was universally believed in the Middle Ages as well as in the Greco-Roman world that the soul is a substance. Indeed, mankind as a whole has held this belief from its earliest beginnings, and it was left for the second half of the nineteenth century to develop a “psychology without the soul.” ~Carl Jung; CW 8.
Angels and Demons. Amera Ziganii Rao So.had a couple of very interesting encounters just now, while out in my usual ‘pop sorcerer’ outfits. It seems, that just as Henry Miller said, that war is more acceptable than sex, so is cruelty, more acceptable than humanitarianism. In other words, just as Carl Jung said, that he freaked people out all the time by being able to see inside them and by being of soul, I am learning in my purification for leadership, just what all those things are about too, and learning to find the tolerance to go with the force of humanitarian leadership. Ie, just to live as I am and not like the other tosspots of this world. The truth of what it is to be authentic, IF YOU ARE A HUMANITARIAN. Now, as you can see, I am grounding High Serpent Female Priesthood™ and all that is the truth of this world, into humanisim. Humanism, humanity and humanitarianism. Three very different and equally similar words and concepts. Because I can now protect my humanity and humanitarianism with a ...

Knowing Our Convictions We should know what our convictions are, and stand for them. Upon one's own philosophy, conscious or unconscious, depends one's ultimate interpretation of facts. Therefore it is wise to be as clear as possible about one's subjective principles. As the person is, so will be their ultimate truth.C.G. Carl Jung
Interesting... do you believe in magic? :-) 7 Traits of Highly Magical People 1. You have a Sense of Being Magical The truth is everyone is magical. But most people do not know that. Society has programmed people to become unmagical and dull. Magical people retain a stronger connection with their inner intuition where they have a sense and knowing that they are magical. Those who are magical are on a path of freeing the minds of others around them, so that they will be able to realize their innate magical nature. 2. You experience plenty of Synchronicities Synchronicity is the term coined by transcendental psychologist Carl Jung to signify the event of “meaningful coincidences”. Magical people are in a state where they tend to attract more of these situations than other people. Much of these synchronicities bring fulfilling and desirable things that cause these people to seem blessed, charmed or just having more good fortune than others. 3.

ON WHY THE CHICKEN CROSSED THE ROAD PLATO: For the greater good. KARL MARX: It was an historical inevitability. MACHIAVELLI: So that its subjects will view it with admiration, as a chicken which has the daring and courage to boldly cross the road, but also with fear, for who among them has the strength to contend with such a paragon of avian virtue? In such a manner is the princely chicken's dominion maintained. HIPPOCRATES: Because of an excess of light pink gooey stuff in its pancreas. JACQUES DERRIDA: Any number of contending discourses may be discovered within the act of the chicken crossing the road, and each interpretation is equally valid as the authorial intent can never be discerned, because structuralism is DEAD, DAMMIT, DEAD! THOMAS DE TORQUEMADA: Give me ten minutes with the chicken and I'll find out. TIMOTHY LEARY: Because that's the only kind of trip the Establishment will let it take, man. NIETZSCHE: Because if you gaze too long across the Road, the Road gazes also across you. B.F. SKINNER ...
"If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail." ---Carl Jung
One of the comments to the NYT's opinion piece, "As Congress Sleeps, More People Die,": The latest shooting massacre committed by Elliot Rodger highlights the dark, psychological basis that permeates our culture and society. Put simply, it is misogyny--hatred of women or the feminine--that is playing out at all levels of society. From the current gubernatorial campaign in Texas where the male, Republican candidate, Greg Abbott, continually calls his female, Democrat opponent, Wendy Davis, "abortion Barbie" to the Roman Catholic church's renewed attempts to suppress American nuns, we see women under siege by frightened, insecure, and angry men who often turn to violence to cope with their sense of inferiority. Guns are just a symptom of this massive social and psychological upheaval in the patriarchy that has governed society for the past two millennia. Our, and world, society according to the psychoanalyst, Carl Jung, desperately need this need feminine in order to survive, but psychologists also need to ...
In "Memories, Dreams, Reflections," Carl Jung described a dream in which he entered a small wayside chapel while in a hiking trip. "The door was ajar, and I went in. ... I saw that on the floor in front of the alter, facing me sat a yogi - in lotus posture, in deep meditation. When I looked at him more closely, I realized that he had my face. I stared in profound fright, and awoke with the thought: 'Aha, so he is the one who is meditating me. He has a dream, and I am it.' I knew that when he awakened, I would no longer be." - Carl Jung (MDR, p. 323)
Today's thought from Hazelden is: "Is he related to something infinite or not? That is the telling question of life." --Carl Jung The times that life works best are when we get out of the way and let the power work through us. The writer says of an inspired short story, "I didn't write this story; it seemed to write itself." After a record-breaking performance an athlete recalls, "I just had an 'on' day. My shots kept falling in." Each of us has had moments when we felt as if we were riding the crest of a wave or were being pushed from behind by a gentle wind. The more you can surrender to the universal energy and go with its flow, the easier life becomes. Compare this experience to that of trying to control and manipulate life through the limited ego. Everything becomes a strain and an effort, a constant struggle. We tire easily. By the time we cross the finish line, we wonder if the race was worth running. A better way is stated by the paradox, "You give it all up to have it all." Whatever your current ...

"The Self is a circle, whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere” - Carl Jung
The new horror novella Deep Like the River by Tim Waggoner is now available at: was supposed to be fun. A chance to get away. An opportunity for two sisters to bond and for one sister to heal. It was a small river, calm, slow-moving. Perfect for a leisurely canoe trip on a beautiful summer day. But then they hear a baby crying on the shore, abandoned and overheated. Alie and Carin have to take her with them. They can’t just leave her there. A simple canoe trip becomes a rescue mission. But there’s something on the shore, hidden by the trees. Something that’s following them every step of the way – watching, waiting . . . Around every bend, the river becomes stranger, darker, more dangerous, until Alie isn’t sure what’s real and what isn’t. The river wants the child for itself, but no matter what it throws at her, Alie’s determined to get the baby to safety. She’s already lost one child. But she'll have to fight the darkness that haunts the river – as well as the darkness within herself ...
"Madness is a special form of the spirit and clings to all teachings and philosophies, but even more to daily life, since life itself is full of craziness and at bottom utterly illogical. Man strives toward reason only so that he can make rules for himself. Life itself has no rules. That is its mystery and its unknown law. What you call knowledge is an attempt to impose something comprehensible on life" -Carl Jung
Preferences for Bern fully support being perceptually, subconsciously, and consciously aware of fantasy, symbols, symbolic relationships, abstract ideas, options, and choice of options as they relate to creative or innovative activities. Perception triggers ideas in Bern's mind, a process that just happens - a process often called intuition. It is not a conscious effort to logically "come up with" creative ideas; instead, the process is best identified with the statement that "a thought struck me." A quote by Carl Jung probably makes complete sense to Bern: "Art is innate in the artist, like an instinct that seizes and makes a tool out of the human being. The thing in the final analysis that wills something in him is not he, the personal man, but the aim of the art."
Carl Jung depth psychology: (Dreamwork was founded by Marc Bregman in the 1970′s. Based on the teachings of Carl Jung, it is a way of working with the material of the subconscious as presented in dreams to achieve a greater connection to our inner soul self. At a minimum, it can yield significant understandings of our challenges and possibilities and, if we are willing to descend deep enough, it can lead to true personal growth and transformation..." Archetypal Dreamwork with Laura Smith: (
Serious Endorsement Here! I went to a.wonderful workshop lead by Valley Reed on active dreaming! It was a small group, maybe 5. so we all got a lot of Valley's attention as she skillfully led us through visualizing meeting our power animals and climbing the world tree. Valley easily led us to the sound of drumming and after each exercise she gave good background information to help us understand and to do similar work on our own. While it is a process using imagination it is not "all in our heads." these are real and powerful archetypes and the process is the same as Carl Jung described as Active Imagination which he used to write his Red Book. Valley is an excellent teacher and quite charming. She easily handled questions and possible sticking points. We all left feeling empowered and positive! So if it's something you would be interested in, give her a call!
"Similar to the unifying and integrating self that Carl Jung perceived in the depths of the ego, the term "greater self" in Buddhism expresses the openness and expansiveness of character by which we can embrace all people's sufferings as our own. The greater self always seeks to alleviate pain and to augment the happiness of others here amid the realities of everyday life. Furthermore, the dynamic, vital awakening of the greater self enables each individual to experience both life and death with equal delight." - Daisaku Ikeda
SPIRITUAL SHARING 2 FROM SRI V.GANESAN Namaskar. You know very well the mythological story of how Lord Ganesha won a competition and gained a "Mango" from his parents -- Lord Shiva and Mother Parvati -- as a reward, to the disappointment and anger the younger brother Lord Subramania ! The stipulated rule of the competition was, "Who ever goes round the World quicker and first, will be rewarded with that rare 'Mango'. " Lord Ganesha's vehicle to travel is a "Mouse" and Lord Subramania's is "Peacock". The younger flew away, instantly to complete the circumambulation of the world quicker knowing fully well that his vehicle 'Peacock' would certainly carry him faster and thus gain him the "Mango". Lord Ganesha went round his Divine Parents -- Lord Shiva and Mother Parvati -- and demanded for the fruit, by quoting the "essence" of all "sastras" that one's parents are one's "World" ! Lord Subramania adhering to the literal meaning , went "outward", whereas Lord Ganesha took the 'essence' and 'spirit' of the ...

Which are you?? Carl Jung introduced several new terms to the language, among which are 'introvert' and 'extravert.' Introversion is "the state of or tendency toward being wholly or predominantly concerned with and interested in one's own mental life." Introverts tend to be quiet, low-key, deliberate, and relatively non-engaged in social situations. They take pleasure in solitary activities such as reading, writing, watching movies, inventing and designing. An introverted person is likely to enjoy time spent alone and find less reward in time spent with large groups of people (although they may enjoy one-to-one or one-to-few interactions with close friends). Extraversion is "the act, state, or habit of being predominantly concerned with and obtaining gratification from what is outside the self." Extraverts tend to enjoy human interactions and to be enthusiastic, talkative, assertive and gregarious. They take pleasure in activities that involve large social gatherings, such as parties, community activities ...
Carl Jung- What is a Introvert Personality: For introverts, to be alone with our thoughts is as restorative as sleeping, as nourishing as eating. Introverted people are known for thinking things through before they speak, enjoying small, close groups of friends and one-on-one time, needing time alone to recharge, and being upset by unexpected changes or last-minute surprises. Introverts are not necessarily shy and may not even avoid social situations, but they will definitely need some time alone or just with close friends or family after spending time in a big crowd.
The practice of yoga by Westerners. Not just yoga asanas, but the whole yogic system. Carl Jung takes an interesting perspective concerning the whole issue of material in shadow that persists even in advanced practitioners. Comments? "Since Western man can turn everything into a technique, it is true in principle that everything that looks like a method is either dangerous or condemned to futility. In so far as yoga is a form of hygiene, it is as useful to him as any other system. In the deepest sense, however, yoga does not mean this but, if I understand it correctly, a great deal more, namely the final release and detachment of consciousness from all bondage to object and subject. But since one cannot detach oneself from something of which one is unconscious, the European must first learn to know his subject. This, in the West, is what one calls the unconscious. Yoga technique applies itself exclusively to the conscious mind and will. Such an undertaking promises success only when the unconscious has no ...

The debt we owe to the play of the imagination is incalculable. — Carl Jung
What did some of the modern age personalities say about reincarnation? Ans: one of the West's most influential artists, Paul Gauguin, wrote that when the physical organism breaks up, the soul survives. It then takes on another body, degrading or elevating according to merit or demerit." For U. S. auto magnate Henry Ford "Genius is experience. Some seem to think that it is a gift or talent, but it is the fruit of long experience in many lives." Reincarnation is a recurring theme in 'Ulysses' by Irish novelist and poet James Joyce. The hero of the novel, Mr. Bloom, tells his wife, "Some people believe that we go on living in another body after death, that we lived before. They call it reincarnation. That we all lived before on the earth thousands of years ago or on some other planet. They say we have forgotten it. Some say they remember their past lives." One of the greatest modern psychologists, Carl Jung, used the concept of an eternal self that undergoes many births as a tool in his attempts to understa ...

Carl Jung's anima and animus are the two primary anthropomorphic archetypes of the unconscious mind.
for Moms a special for real. Its not just a compliment. Read how Dads, aunts, siblings, grandparents, step-parents, and others can be vitally important to children, of course, but there’s something special about moms —and scientists have demonstrated the powerful impact of moms. While children are clearly capable of forming multiple bonds, the mother bond has long been know to be of primary importance. Carl Jung wrote that the very first archetype we build in our brain comes from our mothers, which means that before there is even the self, there is 'mama'. In fact, almost every known culture has a similar informal word for mother—ma, mom, mommy, mama. It comes from nursing. As the baby takes a breath while nursing, mamamamama is the sound that comes out. That’s a pretty primal connection. Another primal connection to our moms, occurs through our sense of smell. In one study, more than 90 percent of mothers were able to identify their baby by scent alone after spending only 10 minutes with them. A ...
:::10 Reasons Why We Need Heroes::: 1. We’re born to have heroes — More than a half-century ago, Carl Jung proposed the idea that all humans have collectively inherited unconscious images, ideas, or thoughts, which he called archetypes. These archetypes reflect common experiences that all humans (and their ancestors) have shared over millions of years of evolution, and the main purpose of these archetypes is to prepare us for these common experiences. Two such archetypes, according to Jung, are heroes and demons. Current research appears to support Jung – scientists have found that newborn babies are equipped with a readiness for language, for numbers, and for their parents’ faces. Humans appear to be innately prepared for certain people and tasks, and we believe this may include encounters with heroes. 2. Heroes nurture us when we’re young — Our research has shown that when people are asked to name their own personal heroes, the first individuals who often come to mind are parents and c ...
