I find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest. I do not judge the universe.Dalai Lama
It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.Aristotle
The Depth Psychology Perspective
Like any muscle, psyche grows from tension. What is Psyche’s Gym?
the paradoxical nature of consciousness itself. The great teachers of world religions spoke to their followers in parabola. This form of questioning leads to profound insight into the nature of consciousness itself, setting the stage for growth to occur through the very foundation of learning we are taking part. Experience at this level drives our journey to realize Self, as it exists separately from, yet in relation to the person we are today.
I chose these quotes today, because recently I was in a dark place. I thought failure was eminent, and that subject is something I never tread lightly. It simply is not in my vocabulary. We were in a very dark place, that required substantial amounts of thought, preparation, work, and even major transitions. However, in this dark moment, success sprang, and now there is a cathartic presence around the entire situation that required so much of our problem solving skills.
Out of Darkness… Light.
I have practiced psychology for many years, and am an avid fan of the philosophical notion that paradoxes drive individuated consciousness to arise. Through working to opposites common to consciousness, we overcome obstacles, engage our journey on a personal level, and Realize Self through the challenges faced and overcame. Thank you all who read this blog… I look forward to writing many more.
