Adam & Eve & Christian & Anastasia

“There is no coming to consciousness without pain.  People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own soul.  One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.”

Dr. Carl G. Jung  

“…   the snake was not really a snake but a symbol for the human yearning for wisdom, the seductive power of the unkn...

Holy Cows and 72 Virgins

Religious leaders have tried to guide men into the spiritual world and away from raw instinct since the beginnings of our species.   Their efforts have advanced civilizations on a global basis.  Jesus said to Nicodemus:

"Verily verily I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God.   Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the...

She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry: Lessons (2)

She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry: Lessons (2)

She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry gives us a passionate, vibrant summary of the Women’s Movement   from 1966 to 1971.   The movie brims with the vitality of the late sixties and early seventies.   The energy and color of the film makes us long for those halcyon days when our universe was being discovered.   All things seemed possible, when rights were being asserted and fought for – not...

Black or White: Gray

Black or White: Gray

 

The new star vehicle for Kevin Costner "Black or White" is, of course, both good and bad. The acting is generally good. The plotting and writing, generally not so much.

 

The film begins in a blur. This is a function of soft camera shot to ease us into the tragedy from which the film springs. But that's the last time the viewer is left with any ambiguity. We are quickly brought up to narr...

Charlie Hebdo and Their Offensive Cartoons

 

Civilization is a thin veneer.   Dr. Carl G. Jung spent most of his life observing how we are still barbarians at the depths of our psyche.   When he died in 1961 the world was at the height of The Cold War, which followed immediately on the two bloody conflagrations of World Wars I and II.   He warned us that...

Five Links to Creativity

Five Links to Creativity

Last time in “The Psychology of Creativity” I discussed how creativity originates in the body’s physical instincts.  But, you might wonder,  what does this mean for me in practical terms?  How do I gain access to my creativity? Where do I direct my energy and attention? What, exactly, is the link that connects my body’s natural instincts with my ego’s potential to ...

The Psychology Of Creativity

 

“From the living fountain of instinct flows everything that is creative; hence the unconscious is not merely conditioned by history, but is the very source of the creative impulse.” ( Carl Gustav Jung )

 

I’m feeling inspired to write poetry these days, and this has me thinking about creativity.  Jung says creativity originates in our instincts.  In other words,...

What's in It for Me? Finding Ourselves in Biblical Narratives

Author Stephen Fuchs has written a book that can bring world peace, if only every Christian, Muslim and Jew would read it.   It wouldn’t be necessary for them to agree with him, but only read the narratives as he explains them.   All would be changed for the better.

Rabbi Fuchs has spent a scholarly lifetime studying and teaching The Holy Bible, and particularly the books of Genesis, Exodus, L...

I haven’t seen the movie Fifty Shades of Grey yet, but I already know it means that fundamentalism in religion is breaking down, with the inevitable consequences that will have on our future.   That is graphically illustrated by the problem of sexuality represented by the movie and the book by the same name, which has sold over 100 million copies.   As of today, it is still number 3 on Th...

Creating the Grounds for Suffering

Another beautiful morning in Puerto Morelos, Mexico on the Mayan Riviera. I woke up refreshed after a very good night’s sleep and found that the sky promised a good amount of sunshine for the day. Yes, there would be clouds, but they would be just fleeting visitors and the blue sky and the golden sun would be returned to me. As usual, morning coffee with my wife in the garden watching the small li...

THE COST OF RUNNING AWAY FROM PAINS… – ACILARDAN KAÇMANIN BEDELİ…

Instead of facing our reality, and living in it, we create fake lives, and we constantly run away from our pains and fears. The Pandora’s Box, in which we carry round our past, we keep as securely locked as we can, believing that we have destroyed the nightmares inside. Instead, we’ve let them direct us.

By running away from our pains, we’ve let them govern us and we make ourselves their servant. T...
