‎My life is the story of the self-realisation of the unconscious.. Everything in the unconscious seeks outward manifestations and the personality too desires to evolve out of its unconscious state and to experience itself as a whole… what we are to our inward vision, and what man appears to be sub specie aeternitatis, can only be expressed by way of myth. Myth is more individual and expresses life more precisely than does science. Science works with concepts of averages which are far too general to do justice to the subjective variety of an individual life. Thus it is that I have now undertaken, in my 83rd year to tell my personal myth. I can only make direct statements, only “tell stories”. Whether or not the stories are “true” is not the problem. The only question is whether what I tell is my fable, my truth.

If you go to thinking, take your heart with you. If you go to love, take your head with you. Love is empty without thinking, thinking hollow without love .

Are you a teen? This blog is just for you!

I have the feeling that we the number of times we people slip by and we never ever notice them and never ever have the chance of having their specialness affect our lives way more than we can ever fathom.

We are driven by self-interest, it’s necessary to survive. But we need wise self-interest that is generous and co-operative, taking others’ interests into account. Co-operation comes from friendship, friendship comes from trust, and trust comes from kind-heartedness. Once you have a genuine sense of concern for others, there’s no room for cheating, bullying or exploitation.

Where love rules, there is no will to power*, and where power predominates, love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other.

~ Carl Jung, “On the Psychology of the Unconsciousness”, 1917

* will to power - my cobbled “definition” … a metaphorical term coined by Nietzsche in Thus Spoke Zarathustra (1883) … generally can be thought of as referring to a main driving force in all humans in the “form” of a conscious or unconscious desire to exercise authority/dominance/control over others … not always necessarily leading to “bad” results and perhaps not “bad” or “good” in and of itself, but can be very destructive in our relationships and societies (and micro-societies such as families) when we are not aware of this phenomenon (and of it both originating from us and originating from “the other” simultaneously and organically … again, the key is awareness)

I’ve led this empty life for over forty years and now I can pass that heritage on and ensure that the misery will continue for at least one more generation.

I look at you and see all the ways a soul can bruise, and I wish I could sink my hands into your flesh and light lanterns along your spine so you know that there’s nothing but light when I see you.

Look into your own heart, discover what it is that gives you pain and then refuse, under any circumstance whatsoever, to inflict that pain on anybody else.

What I want to talk about is how emotional outbursts typically more associated with men (shouting, expressing anger openly) are given a pass in public discourse in a way that emotional outbursts typically more associated with women (crying, “getting upset”) are stigmatized.
I wish to dispel the notion that women are “more emotional.” I don’t think we are. I think that the emotions women stereotypically express are what men call “emotions,” and the emotions that men typically express are somehow considered by men to be something else.
