Forever Jung...

The intensity of your reaction shows that this is connected to a deeper issue within your psyche. Continuing to think about it- exploring it- maybe free writing about it, drawing it, etc may lead to deep insights. Also, pay attention to your dreams. If you're interested in this sort of thing, I recommend the following- Go through this post with a notebook and pen. Write down every element of the interaction in list form- i.e. Man, potato chip bag, bum, Generic Asians, sotto_voce, neighborhood, Class, War, Race, t-shirt. community, crime, downtown, resident, expensive car, charity, car wash, holidays, family, affiliation, someone else's responsibility, etc. Then go back and write down your associations with each item on the list- write the first thing that comes to your head (logical or not) and don't edit yourself. If more than one association comes for some things, or a "thought flow" gets triggered, go with it. You may discover some hugely insightful things, and perhaps get some kind of "answer" to what's going on with you re this.

....Also it will make your brain shut up :)

Re: Forever Jung...

Huh. I have to say that I already did that, and it is the post .. I'm not sure I could free associate much more. It did sit in my head for 1/2 an hour while I drive in and sat in traffic.

No notable crystalization, no new insight. I don't like People, overall.

Also: the last person to sneak up on me in that parking lot was a cop. I suppose that's salient

Re: Forever Jung...

No I mean like this, for example:

Bum: Ass, the guy outside the bank when I was five who took my hand and led me away, to be lazy, lying by the stream on a sunny afternoon, scary, someone who takes children...

Cop: Scary, jail, unfair, unyielding, no repreice, caught, strapped to table, bloodtest, locked up, hate, angry....

and soforth...

Re: Forever Jung...

Ooooh. Well that just doesn't seem like a good idea, at least not here in the office.

Maybe at a later date when I'm suitably restained or the walls are smooshy.

Oh, you can answer one of my lazyweb questions: Where should I start reading Jung at, which work or text?

Re: Forever Jung...

Oh Lord, that's quite a question. Actually you should start reading Jung by reading people that are based on Jung ie David Kiersey and Marylin Bates, Joseph Campbell, etc- disciples of Jung or people talking about Jung, or who have been inspired by Jung....because they are WAY more approachable. Jung is like an eternal circle- no beginning or end or methodical way to learn, you just have to kind of drop in and keep reading and eventually you'll get it. Then, once you've read about Jung, and you feel ready, you can enter Jung himself....Actually, maybe start with a google search on like "Jung" + "Mandala"....or just Jung and go from there, following what interests you...

Re: Forever Jung...

Oh, and when you ARE ready for Jung on Jung...read "Man and his Symbols" first.
