Carl Jung

Your Marvelous Other Mind | Carl Jung -

The only real Danger that exists is Man himself - We are the origin of all coming Evil -

Q - Did you believe in God -

  1. Yes -
  2. Q - Now ?
  3. Difficult to answer - I Know - I don’t need to Believe

Carl Jung once said: "Thinking is difficult, that’s why most people judge."

Here are 11 things I learned from him: - includes many Jordan Peterson videos

  1. Where your fear is, there is your task
  2. The world will ask you who you are, and if you do not know, the world will tell you
  3. The word 'happy' would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.
  4. I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become
  5. The most intense conflicts, if overcome, leave behind a sense of security and calm that is not easily disturbed
  6. The 1st half of life is devoted to forming a healthy ego, the 2nd half is going inward & letting go of it
  7. You are what you do, not what you say you'll do
  8. Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life & you will call it fate
  9. No tree, it is said, can grow to heaven unless its roots reach down to hell.

Carl Jung's work will change your life forever. His work is dense; I've read it so you don't have to. 11 ideas; 11 opportunities to challenge your mind.

  1. (Collective Unconscious) - The depths of our minds are connected.
  2. (Archetypes) - These patterns are based off human evolution and our brains development.
  3. (Individuation) - Jung's theory for self-actualization; a quest for wholeness and not perfection.
  4. (Persona) - This comes from the Greek word for "mask;" it is our need for belonging.
  5. (Shadow) - A hot word in spiritual and self-help spaces; most people are wrong. - Understanding your persona = understanding your shadow
  6. (The Third) - The balance of opposites reveals a third option; life is not dualistic.
  7. (Anima and Animus) - Men are primarily masculine; therefore their souls are feminine (anima).
  8. (Personality) - The Myer's Briggs Personality Test was built off Jung's theory of personality.
  9. (Complexes)
    1. Daddy issues = Father Complex
    2. Mommy issues = Mother Complex
  10. (Ego and Self) - Our ego is our conscious identity. The Self (with a capital S) is Jung's term for God; he believed it exists in the collective AND personal unconscious.
  11. (Synchronicity) - "Meaningful coincidences" that make you question the nature of reality.
