When Words Fail

Secrets

Hey, who doesn’t have secrets? There are secrets that we keep from others—even secrets we keep from ourselves about our own lives. You can claim to not keep ANY secrets from others (or even from your conscious self), but I’m pretty sure you have something deeply stashed somewhere that you aren’t comfortable sharing or evenContinue reading “Secrets”

Chaos and Cosmos

I’m not certain that what I say on this subject will be of any value to others, but I should at least attempt to clarify what I’ve been personally feeling lately, as I assume that if I am experiencing these feelings, then it’s likely that others are as well. Let’s look at Jung’s statement above”Continue reading “Chaos and Cosmos”

Irrational Logic

Perhaps the world makes sense in some perverse way. Or perhaps it doesn’t. But most of us believe that it MUST make some type of sense for us to continue to live comfortably within it. Because if the world made NO sense, then wouldn’t that make us as senseless and purposeless as the world aroundContinue reading “Irrational Logic”

‘Meaning’ Is An Internal Experience

Again, I’m just sharing a good source of info and inspiration. The online company “Sounds True,” founded by Tami Simon, is a great source of both. Here she is interviewing one of my favorite Jungians: Dr. James Hollis, whose focus is always on finding more ‘meaning’ in our lives. It is well worth listening to,Continue reading “‘Meaning’ Is An Internal Experience”

‘Understanding Nothing’ At Last

I did chuckle when I saw this saying above: “To understand nothing takes time,” because I remember thinking as a junior in high school that there couldn’t be ANYTHING new to learn that I already did not know, so what was the point of my senior year?  Ha-ha. (Yes, I actually said that.) It’s hardContinue reading “‘Understanding Nothing’ At Last”

Healing Our Collective Trauma

Because I’ve signed up for other FREE online psychology/spirituality conferences, I now receive numerous offers for additional conferences; and this is one I will definitely be registering for as I recognize a few speakers from other summits, etc.  I’ll admit that I am one of the most ‘dangerous of beasts’: an armchair psychologist with noContinue reading “Healing Our Collective Trauma”

Insight, Courage, Endurance

How do we as individuals, survive difficult times? I know everyone is a little bit different in how they view the world that we all share, including how they see themselves in it, and even in how they strategize how to personally make it from one day to the next with their sanity intact. AndContinue reading “Insight, Courage, Endurance”

This LIFE Is Ours to Choose

After that Jungian summit a few months ago, I liked best the session by James Hollis, PhD, so I purchased a couple of his latest books: 1) Living an Examined Life: Wisdom for the Second Half of the Journey, and 2) Living Between Worlds: Finding Personal Resilience in Changing Times. For me, reading Hollis isContinue reading “This LIFE Is Ours to Choose”
