Psyche: Your Inner GPS Navigation System

I was walking this morning and came across the above sign. The road goes up and over a series of mountainous wilderness areas, ascending and descending through some of the most gorgeous…

Kickstarter Jung/Freud Book. Please Support!

When I first watched “The Hunger Games”, I was amazed by the underlying themes that the story contains, such as issues of corporate power, the 99% vs Wall Street, our superficial media culture, to name but a few. Much like Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible”, it serves as an allegory of America and it illuminates fearsome problems in our society and government. I would even go as far to say that it is one of the most important stories in our era since it dares to challenge the status quo and…

About Time

I've been reading about soul and time.

One of the wisest descriptions I've come across is from poet John O'Donohue.

In this extract interviewer Krista Tippett asks him about time:

JOD: 'I think that one of the huge difficulties in modern life is the way time has become the enemy.

KT: Time is a bully. We're captive to it.

JOD: Totally, and I'd say seven out of every 10 people who turn up in a doctor's surgery are suffering from something…

When People Are Running Your Life...!

Fast and furious come the demands. They want time, attention, energy. People feel empty and turn your way. "They'll steal your soul if you let them....don't you let them," goes the contemporary folk song.

Problem is that there is often a psychic hole in us that permits people to make their incessant demands without us setting limits. We need to be needed. It's a dark abyss of a most nontransfomational sort to require the neediness of others in order to manufacture an ostensible…

In the garden

In the garden

I bury the remains of the mothers  -

The fish whose bones line the roots of my tomatoes-

That is how I pray

 

I kneel in the soft earth and look

Through the lattice of dark green leaves

There, yellow as buttercups in the…

Destiny's Fate by Deborah de Camaret, Clinical Psychologist, France

Destiny's Fate

Destiny, Thou hallowed bride

Fate's groom has courted you till you sigh.

He has plunged his poisonous hand into your heart

And wounded your innocence till you smart.

He lusts for your soul you so fearfully proffer

Because you are torn between passion and honor.

Destiny, Thou hallowed bride,

Fate's groom has courted you till you sigh.

He has plunged his poisonous hand into you…

Keeping Your Head Clear!

When head space gets clogged, a psychological complex has kicked in. it could be that we're unconsciously trying to please a mother or father figure. There's a chance that power needs or an old habit of tying into depressive attitudes has us by the throat and won't let go. Whatever is causing it, a complex clogs up head space and can pull us down into the dumps.

The good thing is that the dumps carry the seeds of potential change. It's like a built-in compost heap for the psyche. When…

Barry’s Blog # 96: Deconstructing a Gatekeeper

It’s easy to counter the racially coded statements of right-wingers and Tea Party spokespersons. But it serves no purpose other than for entertainment. John Stewart does this four evenings a week, preaching to his choir. It’s much more difficult, but potentially more important, to identify the purposes of our real media gatekeepers. Let’s think in terms of concentric circles.

Fox News and extremist right-wing bloggers are the outermost concentric circle of gatekeeping, where…
