Elected Leader or Gangster?

Elected Leader or Gangster?

 

How do you tell the difference between a democratically elected leader, who will work for the best interests of their people, and a gangster, who will jam their ideology down the throats of their people and steal their assets?  You can't tell from an election.  Adolph Hitler was elected by the German people to be Chancellor of Germany, with copious use of jack boots and rifle barrels...

Divine Union: Creative Force & Origin

 

In Symbols of Transformation, Carl Jung explores the dynamic relation between the masculine and feminine as archetypal images of sacred cohabitation. One such image is the Shiva Lingam and Yoni base. He says:

 

“The motif of continuous cohabitation is expressed in the well-known lingam symbol found everywhere in Indian temples: the base is a female symbol, and within it stands the phallus.”...

Psychology and Alchemy: Reviewed

 

Dr. Carl G. Jung was an historian!  Who knew?!  His five-decade long study of the mystery of alchemy seemed a sideshow to me for the longest time.  Why resurrect an ancient practice, which had been discarded by intellectuals for centuries? What does making gold have to do with it?  

Gradually, over many years of studying the master’s work, it became obvious to me that it w...

The Anima's Role in a Man's Spiritual Journey

In my previous post I wrote about a man who, in the middle of his life, had a powerful dream in which he briefly identified with being a woman. I’d like to explain what this means from the perspective of Jungian psychology. In his work life, this man had become a highly successful and respected authority in his field. He was a responsible, law-abiding citizen and a loving husband, father, and social...

Fight Censorship - See This Film

In April of 2013, Tia Lessin and Carl Deal's film "Citizen Koch" died an untimely death. The film had sought to illustrate the role of Koch money in American electoral politics. But the very day after the "Citizen Koch" played at the Wisconsin Film Festival, public television funding was pulled in order to placate the right wingers who were the subject of the film.

Did you not see that when your creative force turned to the world, how the dead things moved under it and through it, how they grew and prospered, and how your thoughts flowed in rich rivers?  If your creative force now turns to the place of the soul, you will see how your soul becomes green and how its field bears wonderful fruit.” ~ Carl Jung.

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...
