Carl Jung

A list of favorite quotes from Carl Jung:   Every form of addiction is bad, no matter whether the narcotic be alcohol, morphine or idealism. Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to a better understanding of ourselves. Nobody, as long as he moves about among the chaotic currents of life, is without trouble. The healthy man does not torture others – generally it is the tortured who turn into torturers. The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed. The shoe that fits one person pinches another; there is no recipe for living that suits all cases. As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.

RISK Podcast

Image
So, my dear friend is visiting for a week... It is great to have her here.  I'm up super early, and so is she, and it's full on conversation from the minute we meet usually.  Topic of conversation.... well of course basketball, sex, life, family, philosophy, books, you name it and pretty much we'll go there and see where it leads.... She put a few new podcasts on my phone, and one that her brother suggested is fantastic.  I listened to it all day.  It's sort of like a bawdy version of The Moth..... and  I'm in LOVE!! with this podcast among other things.... :)  It is so nice to be with an old friend, sure wish we lived a little bit closer.... and an added bonus.....she can really bake!! 

Give it a try if you dare!!  
RISK! is not like other storytelling shows. It’s “where people tell true stories they never thought they’d dare to share in public.” They encourage their storytellers to step out on a limb, be brutally candid and emotionally raw. This is an uncensored …
