Honesty Is A Very Expensive Gift

9 Life Lessons From Famed Psychologist Carl Jung

Carl Jung was a famous philosopher and psychologist. He developed and spread the idea of analytic philosophy, terms like archetype, persona, introversion, extroversion and personality complexes were his concepts.

He not only grew the western idea of consciousness but influenced scientific thoughts and philosophy for generations to come.

Tesla was a strong advocate of Jung's ideas on perception and thought.

Below are some of my favorite quotes, these phrases always make me think and examine myself.

1. The shoe that fits one person pinches another; there is no recipe for living that suits all cases.

We have become unproductively enamored with our ability to gather vast amounts of information and notice trends.

Technological advances have made these tasks easier and more accurate but this just strengthens the illusions of 'blanket theories' and golden rules.

Every situation happening and person living is unlike any other before. There are many similarities but there are distinct and important differences.

2. In all chaos there is a cosmos, in all disorder a secret order.

Everything is reacting to something. Even if we don't understand what is happening or see the full effect, it doesn't change the fact that it is happening.

3. Neurosis is always a substitute for legitimate suffering.

We control our suffering. Knowing this fact doesn't make it easier to deal with life or tame our internal demons.

We frequently compound our suffering with our perceptions and inabilities: the inability to let go, love, forgive or grow.

4. Mistakes are, after all, the foundations of truth, and if a man does not know what a thing is, it is at least an increase in knowledge if he knows what it is not.

We don't need all the answers to know what to do or how to act. A person may not know what fire is, but she knows it isn't cold and isn't forever.

This is enough to begin interacting with it and learning. Don't be afraid to name what isn't known, we can always change or evolve our understandings.

5. The greatest and most important problems of life are all fundamentally insoluble. They can never be solved but only outgrown.

Suffering is inherent to life. You can not 'solve' suffering, but you can grow past the fear of it. You can learn about it, appreciate its value and let it become an asset.

WE CONTROL OUR SUFFERING and a problem only remains so if we view it as such.

6. Show me a sane man and I will cure him for you.

This is one of my favorite quotes. The 'sane' or 'ordinary' people of the world are the scariest in my opinion. They are so dishonest and blinded to themselves that they can not 'see' their own perceptions.

A person that is unaware of their internal mechanization and potential control are subject to the whims of others and the random voices in their head.

7. It all depends on how we look at things, and not how they are in themselves.

Perception is everything. We can control our perceptions and in doing so control the world around us. A person who suffers can see the suffering as a punishment or a way to grow.

You can choose the people who hurt you as enemies or you can see them as fellow humans, people who made mistakes.

8. The healthy man does not torture others – generally it is the tortured who turn into torturers.

There is a enough harm being done in the world with out people purposefully damaging others. The healthy person is concerned with being a better individual.

In trying to do so they feel empathetic towards others, and want to help, not hurt.

9. A man who has not passed through the inferno of his passions has never overcome them.

You have to understand something to overcome it.

Dance with your demons and your passions. See them in every kind of light, and seek to understand how they were formed. You will gain strength and insight necessary to succeed and grow.

Just A Matter Of Minutes

Perhaps the most interesting factor in life is that all it takes for a drastic life change is just a moment. This can be good or bad. In a moment you can lose everything, say the wrong thing, or trip and fall into a lifetime injury. But at the same time, our whole identity is created in moments, such as the moment of your first kiss, the last time you see someone you loved, or the moment you hold your newborn baby for the first time.

This set of twins was born within just minutes of each other. However despite being twins they were born on different days, different months, and even different years.

Did The Hospital Make A Mistake?

Now it's easy to wonder: "how could this even happen?" Maybe in the heat of the moment, a staff member accidentally wrote the wrong date on the birth certificate or the system made an error.

But the situation was much simpler. What happened was that parents Fatima Madrigal and Robert Trujillo of Greenfield welcomed a son named Alfredo into the world on New Year’s Eve at 11:45 p.m, their local time. Now that part makes sense. What makes this story interesting is that exactly fifteen minutes later, another baby pushed out and the couple welcomed Alfredo’s twin sister Aylin. This put the time of her birth to be on New Year’s Day, a whole day, month, and year ahead of her brother's. Now he can always claim to be the oldest and no one can argue against it.

The Magic of A Unique Birth

Thankfully both babies came out healthy, despite the complications that the birth of twins can sometimes face. Aylin was welcomed into the world at 5 lbs., 14 oz., while her big brother, Alfredo weighed 6 lbs., 1 oz. Even their parents were amazed that their children now had different years on their birth certificates. The mother explained: "It's crazy to me that they are twins and have different birthdays."

Although this might not be the first time this happens, twins with different birthdays are rare, and the chance of twins being born in different years is about one in 2 million. These babies defied the odds from the moment they came into the world, now they can take that with them for the rest of their lives.

Imagine The Birthday Parties

Dr. Ana Abril Arias, who oversaw the delivery said that it was certainly one of the most memorable deliveries of their career. It's interesting thinking about how the twins will lead their lives after they've made such a remarkable entrance.

Twins often feel like they are in competition with one another, in an attempt to build their own identity and feel unique. Now they can have birthday parties a day apart and really feel like, despite their connection as twins, they're both still unique individuals.

Twins Make For Only 3% Of American Births

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are typically 120,000 twin births every year in the United States. The births make up just over 3 percent of all births, however, which is a considerably small percentage. Their uniqueness allows them to tap into abilities that help them form really strong bonds. They sometimes can even tap into abilities that the average person can't access. For instance, 40% of twins invent their own languages, some even say that they can almost read each other's minds. This could be due to the fact that twins start interacting in the womb at 14 weeks.

However, they also hold their differences. In fact, Identical twins have different fingerprints and twins can even have completely different skin tones.

Stranger Things Can Happen

The year is just beginning and yet newborn babies made headlines within seconds of coming into this world. It puts into perspective how quickly someone's existence can make an impact, and how simple that impact can be. This year, ask yourself how you can make your mark, and watch its ripple effects.
