Hiding From Others… and From Ourselves

Robert Bly’s A Little Book on the Human Shadow is a great book that adds yet another dimension to the notion of the so-called dark side of the human being. Carl Jung referred to this dark side as the human shadow. Although Jung may have given it the name, the idea is much older, dating back as far as human history. Often, the dark side is personified in literature, none of which is more illustrative of the dark potential than the classic tale of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. In my book, Mind Programming, the name I used to refer ...

Victim or Freedom

One important element in the notion of personal freedom is self-responsibility. It may go unnoticed today, but so long as one remains dependent upon blaming another for their misfortunes, they effectively have tied themselves up. There is nothing they can do about it but get even. Thus the bumper sticker, “I don’t get even, I get evener.” The fact is, blame is a bind that wraps us from one end to another as though we had been literally tied up. Blame says, “There’s nothing I could do — it was done to me.” Blames informs us that we’re just pawns ...

Is It a Breakdown in Etiquette?

Assume that you are not personal friends. How would you address a school principal or, for that matter, President Barack Obama? Would it be on a first name basis? If not, why? Now I don’t mean to be Victorian about this so please put yourself in my shoes as I relate a couple of experiences to you, and then decide if it’s my sensibilities gone afoul or a breakdown in manners. This last weekend I visited my favorite lake resort. After enjoying a successful morning of fishing, my lovely bride of nearly a quarter century and I decided we were ...

Your Personal Master Plan

One of the things we see happen with local government is the creation of a master plan. The plan will lay out where development is to take place and what kind. It will anticipate the growth of the community, and therefore the nature of services that will be required. Zoning provisions will follow the master plan, and eventually so will easements, if they require the condemnation of personal property in order to satisfy the greater needs of the community. The goal is a prosperous, safe, and healthy city. Developers and real estate investors will first consult the master plan before ...

Allowing the Time to Heal

Our expectations can heal us, and they can harm us. Many people are afraid of losing, winning, playing and embracing much that life has to offer. Moving that to a new context — acknowledging our own anticipation while maneuvering it into the zone of practice, trying, learning and waiting with expectancy of success — is one of the grandest endeavors we can undertake. But to do that, we must at times be both the patient and the healer. I’m reminded of an old Sufi story about time and pomegranates that may be helpful here: Once upon a time, in a ...
