Language of the Crossroad

Language of the Crossroad

Within any relationship, business or personal, we find ourselves at crossroads we don’t always have the language in navigating with the individual we find ourselves.  One wants to continue straight the other wants to ponder the other two paths. ...

You writing is like comments ... well reasoned and a reflection of your wisdom.
I was not on beBee when you wrote this Harvey ... a most insightful post ... which I am sharing.
As "social distancing" is being initiated ... HOME needs to be even more a place of REFUGE and peace.
While reading the thought occurred to me dancing is so much better than distancing ... although distancing in any relationship is it's own form of dance
Take the "bag of rocks" and build a "crossroads" memorial in a garden ... a reminder of the "end game-shared destination"
Spiritual distance is the cliff that kills ...

I like how mention extending the principles into work relationships.

Happiness as a Paradox

Happiness as a Paradox

The only legitimate reason I have for discussing happiness or trust online is out of my own unhappiness or distrust.  As a society we are constantly engaging a paradox of happiness and trust because we are not facing our unhappiness or distrust,...

The paradox of happy is that it is like air, we only think of air when it is either polluted or we are suffocating. What connects this happy with air is ruach - the meaning of which is the breath of life. Just as King Canute was fabled at commanding the sea to retreat, unhappiness is a systemic ocean. If people learn to breath that is the point where we can rise above the ocean of unhappiness and in so doing realize how wet our thoughts about happiness made us.

Harvey Lloyd Remember that what I am addressing here is a dyadic relationship. Social media is naturally polyadic (many-to-many) and so if there is any loss of being, it is in the group being which ceases to be a one-to-one relationship. We are not short of the WE relationship, we are short of the OTHER YOU. You are my OTHER YOU. When Ali Anani is talking to you, you are his OTHER YOU and when you are talking to Ali Anani, it is Ali Anani who is your OTHER YOU. So I am taking the dyadic. The OTHER YOU is the unique relationship between two and/or intimacy. The OTHER YOU ceases to be in a triadic relationship or in conversations which involve more than 3 people.

Young people have moved the personal relationship online. They are the first generation to do this. Talk to a young person how they use the virtual space and it is a weave of one-to-one personal relationships. There are also group relationships which are facilitated through group video chats. It is the way they make one-to-one personal even on a public space that fascinates me. It is a new way of interacting. Young people have OTHER YOU relationships, but it is a challenge for us because of our inherited bias for group discussion and group thinking.

Why A Great Idea Is Rarely Enough

Why A Great Idea Is Rarely Enough

Just recently I came across an article about MIT announcing the creation of an AI college. A new idea? Hardly! I actually was consulted to work on this project (not by MIT, unfortunately) two and half years ago. How come you never heard of this...

We still project the parts of the shadow that are malevolent and nihilistic more than the positive traits of the shadow. I associate persona with its most outward and visible form today which is personal brand. That is what I project, a society so endeared to persona, that we lose sight that Jung was constantly pointing his finger to the imbalance between our association with the group over a focus on the individual.

We the people who watch the news, reward the news cycle with ratings. What are ratings but the evidence of millions of people and their projections. The movie industry also is rewarded by this and our media choices merely show how much we are trapped in our dark projection, rather than what I see Jung's genius and that is the balance of the individual being with group projection. He was not favouring introverts over extroverts but simply stating that the group is still our dominant psyche and focus.

We cannot further that development unless we see what we are projecting, and what we are projecting is mirrored in our own words. I see no value in this regard in how others study my words, because it is clear that with the state of persona as it is today, most people are still far removed from studying their own. What we project is the mirror to our own souls and that is why I love the idea of metacognition. This evolution is not about an attainment of nirvana, it is the liberation of being from our animal self to the evolved human being.

Jung also saw the development of being as an evolution. News ratings are an indicator that we are still primitive in our outlooks, we are more closely related to our animal self than our human self. That evolution will proceed for the next 400 years - I am not talking about instantaneous evolution. So even Jung saw the positive in the Shadow and in this buzz I am projecting an even greater appreciation (hence shadow appreciation) but I am not talking on behalf of Jung but for myself.

If you would allow me i would like to take a contrarian view of your thoughts on good and evil. This concept under the postmodern thinking has run out of vogue. I believe a bit to hastily. I too would like to think we have reached some nirvana state where we can cure the malevolent person who has created a shadow that is deeply nihilistic. Evil has been replaced with good people needing rehab. This rehab process has been going on for a few decades with limited results. Most positive results have come from good people who have experienced a PTSD styled event and momentarily snapped.

I believe that a shadow can be wired so tight within malevolence that it cant get back. Doesn't mean we shouldn't try but never the less this form of evil is present in our society. We see it in mass shooting events, the more recent pipe bomb mailings and many other media frenzy type of events.

I believe we need to know that humans are capable of developing a mind that is evil. Its important for us to understand the difference between a good person experiencing emotional circumstantial trauma and a severally nihilistic mind. There is a line we cross when we extend our shadow into the depths of nihilism. This line is the line between mental health issues and evil.

When we lose this thought then we begin to believe that science can fix everything. This is the case in a post modern world where science declares that it does and the population believes. The capacity for humans to grow into evil exists in our culture. I believe that Jung showed us the shadow and its extremes. If we struggle to see ourselves and our footprint with full on cognitive abilities, their exists the opposite. A mind that has hit the trip wire of malevolence and will never see their footprint again in any socially acceptable way.
