Energy Going Upwards...

C.G. Jung writes to Dr. Schmitt (December 20, 1945). "In alchemy...is presumably meant a transformation of the destructive fiery spirit into a spiritus vitae. You are in the midst of an inner confrontation with yourself which is of the highest general importance....we must also inquire whether something that wants to go upwards has not taken a false route downwards into the body."

Today I'm completing my recovery from medical congestion.…

Trauma, Don't Paint it Pretty

I recently started a new painting, using a canvass big enough to use up some old paint.  It was to be a study of yellows, with burnt sienna, vermillion red and other odds and ends I had accumulated over the…

Barry’s Blog # 137: Did the South Win the Civil War? Part Two of Two

In Part One of this essay I argued that the first two of the South’s objectives were actually met. For at least a hundred years after the war, the great majority of African Americans, even if they were legally free, were unable to control their destinies. They were not slaves, but most could not vote, most could not live where they chose to, and participation in the American Dream remained an abstract ideal. Meanwhile, white supremacy was the dominant, de facto thinking in government,…

Barry’s Blog # 136: Did the South Win the Civil War? — Part One

Today – June 19th, 2015 – is Juneteenth, the oldest known celebration commemorating the end of slavery in the United States. Indeed, today is the 150th anniversary of the date that slaves in Texas heard that the Civil War had ended and that they were free. A bit of history is in order, from www.juneteenth.com:

…it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed…

Mandorla, a way to see the other side of the coin

"The message is unmistakable our own healing proceeds from that overlap of what we call good and evil, light and dark. It is not that  the light element alone does the healing, the place where  light and dark begin to touch is where miracles arise. This middle place is the mandorla" Robert A. Johnson

Instinct in the Human Animal

Austrian ethologist (animal behaviorist, different from the human ego-version), Konrad Lorenz, was of a class of empiricists whose integrity stood out in the field of observational science. His book, On Aggression, was a model in his discipline. His dedication to understanding nature equaled his love of animals, and his book was a tribute to both.

One study he recounted was an experiment by Wallace Craig on the effects of loneliness in the blonde ring dove. He separated a…

Spark of Life - Spirit Reunites with the Mind and Body

The Spark of Life  -  Spirit Reunites with the Mind and Body      - Dream from 3/10/2015

 

This dream is about the 'energy' that can be derived if one manages to reconnect their 'spirit' to their 'mind and body', and the obstacles encountered when one tries to discover a new path mid-stream in life. It is a very difficult road for most, but necessary to go down if one wants to have intrinsic satisfaction with their work life when disoriented during their initial career…
