Often it seems that we go from one "fearful" or stressful situation to the next. A relationship ends or a job disappears and we are thrown into turmoil and disruption. Then a solution appears, perhaps in the form of a new relationship or a new job.
But suddenly, seemingly out of nowhere, the next life challenge appears once again pushing us into self doubt or edging us toward a new life in a new location.
Life has a way of challenging us, always changing, spinning us around and making us look at new things, new ideas or old things in new ways.
Still, fortunately, we often have choices or paths to take. We can choose to confront the problem or hide from it. We can look at the old problem in a new way, going deeper into ourselves to find a solution for our unease, relief from our self doubt, or a way to end self-destructive behaviors.
Today is the day for you to begin the path. Take the first challenging step toward your life opportunity. You will discover new doors within yourself and answers, too. I guarantee it!
The Importance of Balance and Harmony
Dr. Carl Jung, the Swiss psychiatrist and founder of analytical psychology, placed emphasis on the importance of balance and harmony, saying that people today rely too much on science and logic — that we all would benefit from integration of spirituality and the appreciation of the unconscious mind. Jung advocated the psychological process of integrating the conscious and unconscious mind, while still maintaining conscious autonomy.
Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes. — Carl G. Jung
