David John Collier replied to Depth Alliance Board's discussion Join the Depth Discussion: Understanding Others' Beliefs — Week of 8-22-13

David John Collier replied to Depth Alliance Board's discussion Depth Discussion: How do we solve seemingly "unsolvable" problems? Week of 8-15-13
"To start with, suggest cancelling any thought that a problem is unsolvable!  And recognising that we can't please everyone all the time.  Some problems are not ours, they are for another to sort out.  Beware the…"

David John Collier replied to Bonnie Bright's discussion Join the Depth Discussion: Finding the Sacred in Everyday Life - Week of 7-25-13

David John Collier replied to Depth Alliance Board's discussion Join the "Depth Discussion" — July 11, 2013
"I see this possibility only in an individual's free will decision and commitment to engage in personal development (so-called), otherwise known as the Hero's Journey: inwards to face and heal their shadow side. Spirit notices who is so…"

David John Collier commented on Bonnie Bright's blog post Ecopsychopathy and Sustainability: The End of Life as We Know It
"Hi Aleksandar, sorry i mis-spelt your name. yes, as Jung thought, the path to Self-realisation is largely to let go of the ego (or rather be in control of it, especially to deflate an inflated ego). but in my experience (and beyond that of Jung;…"

David John Collier commented on Bonnie Bright's blog post Ecopsychopathy and Sustainability: The End of Life as We Know It

considering writing a book on the societal/world challenge of repressed anger in so many people and its Freudian/societal denial.

this is of course the mythological challenge of cleaning out one's own Greek 'stable' i.e. the so-called unconscious, linked in turn to the yin-yang meridians in Chinese medicine in which emotional blockages occur.
