It is, indeed, a good thing that no valid method exists for otherwise the meaning of the dream would be limited in advance and would lose precisely that virtue which makes dreams so valuable for therapeutic purposes – their ability to offer new points of view.” – Carl Jung

    I have to admit Joel that I didn’t actually know who Carl Jung was. None the less I love number three. I have always believed that your pain becomes your success. People that always avoid pain or never experience anything difficult typically don’t live a highly successful life. Thanks for sharing.

      Oh yes, always avoid obstacles and you’ll never learn how to get through them. One of my greatest struggle brought me to the realization I have to change my life, and all the ‘bad’ things turned out to be a good ones.

      I actually started to read Jung right about during those hard times. His autobiography is great read.

    My favourite one is “If a man knows more than others, he becomes lonely.”

    Thank you Joel, I love Carl Jung. Great inspiration!

      another way of putting that is “A man ahead of his time, is socially unacceptable”

      • Christine

        Let us hope we all strive for the courage for ourselves and humanity to become socially unacceptable.

        Arleigh Joe Carpenter, haha I love this! You know, sometimes that feels exactly like this. You just need adjust yourself and care less what other people say/think of you and stick your own way. Hardest thing is realization you will never be alone as Universe will always send someone to you, as your energy level will atract like-minded people. Thank you for reply!
