Carl Jung: No Pain Without Conscience


By Antoni BigCuore*   -   Psychology and Spirituality 

I made contact with this thought, supposedly attributed to Carl Jung, on Facebook, and I found very interesting for further reflection.Carl Jung says: "There is no awakening of consciousness without pain. People will do anything, even to the limits of absurdity to avoid facing their own soul."You do not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious." (Carl Jung - psychiatrist).

Generally, you can see, we are always running away from our bad consciences. We are so occupied with the outside world, not spend time with insights. Contact the soul itself, for most people, because fear!

From the perspective Christian enlightened being is climbing the heights of spirituality, as did the Saints called, is to imitate the life of Jesus Christ Himself. It is following in his footsteps. It is to make life a form of prayer. It is daily contact with its design, it is making the prayerful reading of the word of God, which, in Catholicism Christian, called "Lectio Divina". Is eating, especially the Eucharist, the greatest of all sacraments. For the Eucharist are incorporated by Jesus.

Clearly, whoever you choose, will face many obstacles along the way, many misunderstandings; many slanders even; many betrayals.Just to cite the case of Padre Pio of Pietrelcina, Italy, who was vilified for having "the stigmata of Christ" in his body, alleging they are false. St. Benedict came to escape a poisoning of the monastery's own colleagues! Santa Beatriz da Silva, who served on the Court of the King of Portugal, was locked in a vault, to be very beautiful, very beautiful, and aroused lust of every court and the Queen, with her mortal jealousy, tried to kill her stifled. (Was saved by the intercession of Mary and the Angel Raphael, by which harbored great devotion.)

LIGHTING THE SOUL IS A LONG PROCESS! Who wants to tread this path, you must have a lot of determination, a lot of guts, a lot of discipline and very aware of their own limits. It is imperative, however, very much in the books and study "digging" the very heart and soul!. It's a real catharsis daily, a long apprenticeship, a long patience!. (I'm trying). (The process is pure self!)For that I am a Christian, is to feed me daily of God's spirit, embodied by the bread of His Word, contained in the Holy Scriptures, the sacraments, especially the Eucharist and Reconciliation. The Eucharist, for example, is the largest and best fuel for spiritual enlightenment.Donate to the neediest. Make every week volunteering solidarity: type, visiting the sick, bringing them a word of comfort, warmth and love. Visit nurseries, nursing homes etc..

Another super important because the process of enlightenment: the KINDNESS. Kindness is super important to be developed. Only he who gives himself to another, you may be happy to make the other happy too.We often hear that the future spouses: I case to be happy. When actually should say "I case to make each other happy."

The worst of the darkness is the darkness of ignorance!. This produces a lot of damage, even to death.Therefore, we always emphasize in my writings the importance of spirituality. The word spirituality comes from the Latin "Spiritualis" is a translation of the Greek word, "pneumatikos" which can be translated "according to the spirit" or "spirit-filled". (1)

As I am a Christian, Spirituality for me is that I defend Christian spirituality advocated by Jesus in his Gospel. Is spirituality coming from the Holy Spirit of God himself.There are various spiritualities: Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu etc.. Each with their own attributes and postulates.Modern man suffers from the worst disease of all: lack of Spirituality!

It has already been proven that the technology does not satisfy the longings of the human soul!. It is mere illusion!. It chimera!. Should be seen and used as TOOLS to improve the quality of life, since, basically, everyone longs to be happy. But never let yourself be ruled by it.Christian spirituality is to drink from the fountain of God's Holy Spirit. Who drinks from this fountain will never thirst, says the Master Jesus. He is the true Light that enlightens us, that guides our steps, that inspire us to make the right decisions.

On the other hand, this does not invalidate the "other ways" of spirituality. Each religion has its own spirituality. Their rites, their "liturgy", their doctrine.The most important is the human being that he is aware of spirit, mind and body. A TOTAL be indivisible, and that should be seen and analyzed in this way, under penalty of not finding what I call in my thesis, homeostatic balance PERSONALITY. (See article in the Letters Nook with this title: www.recantodasletras. com.br/autores/antonibigcuore).

What is called "biopsychic and emotional balance, or even three-dimensional!Worth fighting for this challenge! The reward on overall health is clearly felt by those who practice it.Health, Peace, Prosperity, Harmony and joy in your heart, my brother and sister! Shalom!
