Carl Jung...

"Projection occurs when a person sees in another qualities they themselves possess. This phenomenon goes on daily in most relationships and encounters. Whenever a person is convinced that the awful qualities seen in another person have nothing to do with him or herself, a projection is mostly likely being engaged. This does not mean, however, that these qualities are not present. It merely means that they probably exist, to some extent, in the person observing them.

"The Good News/Bad News Attraction.

"Another common projection involves envy. When a person envies another, more than likely that person already possesses the qualities in some unexpressed state. Whether observing negative or positive qualities, more than likely that person is engaged in projection and existing under a kind of spell. They are not seeing all that is. How to awaken from this spell and reclaim a true picture of a person or situation becomes an important task in self-development.

"The good news is that a person already possesses those qualities they thought they lacked; the bad news is that that a person already possesses those qualities they thought they lacked!  What attracts two people is that each possesses what the other wants. The secret is that what the other wants is already locked away in inside themselves.  Unfortunately, the rule applies both ways. Whatever a person feels is safely locked away from view can be generally found alive and well in another."

Carl Jung was a grave but brave optimist!

Who are we not forgive one another?  Whether you like it or not, we have to,  like speed limits and taxes.  But by examining our faults through the projections we find in each other we can refine our selfish selves, and at the end of the day we are brothers and sisters in arms.  

So before we go big and be a martyr for all the wrong doers that have pissed us off for years and years, let us take a moment to be gentle and kind especially to ourselves and also to our enemies.

So let us be kind.

Well done! I am very happy to see that you are thinking in a forward direction. I also want you to know that you are forgiven for all that has been revealed. You are forgiven and I only hope that I will be too.

"Defenselessness is all that is required for the truth to dawn upon our minds with certanity -If there is Love in you then you have no need but to project and extend it." ~ Goodbye to Guilt

Amen, mister. Or is it Minister?

Minister? How can that be when I haven't the slightest clue as to where I'm going or any real recollections as to where I've been? Where/when can we find that threshold moment?
