Topics to help keep you balanced…Continued

Topic Two – Jung – the social side.

As mentioned in a previous blog, thirty years ago when the healing arts was beginning to blossom in people’s minds, I was introduced to Yoga, Jung and Reflexology. These three topics formed the basis of who I am and provided the structures that have helped keep me balanced whether mentally, socially, or physically.

Today I want to mention the work of Dr. Jung and how that has helped me deal with the differences in people’s thoughts, functions and connectedness.

Carl Jung, the father of personality typology, lead me to think about the human instrument in terms of the tension of opposite functions. Dr. Jung said that without tension there would be no personality distinctions and no reason to grow. Stress and tension is necessary but we just want a healthy amount in order to feel challenged but not so much tension that we become ineffective in our relationships with others. We need self-knowledge and the self-skills to know how to communicate and get along with others.

When dealing with difficult situations with others, what are some of the tools you recommend for communicating for the purpose of finding mutually satisfying solutions?

Stay awake, aware, and alert and strive to lead a well-tempered life – a life that possesses both hardiness and flexibility. The good news is that once you are awake, you can never go to sleep again, but if you do, do it on purpose and prepare yourself for the consequences.
