Dalai Lama on enemies

In the practice of tolerance, one’s enemy is the best teacher.

This Buddhist teaching coincide with the preaching of Allan Kardec, the father of SpiritismThe Spititists, as well as most Asian religions, believe in many lives. They claim that, before the spitit comes to Earth to reincarnate, he/she accepts a plan for his life devised to teach him/her lessons. In this sense, the persons that are in the world going against us – our enemies – have the function of giving us lessons that we should learn.

Carl Jung, the great Swiss psychologist, teaches that our first stage of growth is getting conscious of our shadow. An enemy is generally the carrier of our shadow projections. We have to get conscious of these projections to continue our journey of individuation. This once more confirms the Dalai Lama wise saying.

Dalai Lama sobre inimigos

Na prática da tolerância, o inimigo é nosso melhor professor.

Este ensinamento budista coincide com a pregação de Allan Kardec, o pai do EspiritismoOs espíritas, assim como a maioria das religiões asiáticas, acreditam em muitas vidas. Eles afirmam que, antes do espírito encarnar na Terra, ele/ela aceita um plano para sua vida concebido para que possa aprender importantes lições.. Neste sentido, as pessoas que estão contra nós – nossos inimigos – tem a função de nos dar lições que devemos aprender.

Carl Jung, o grande psicólogo suíço, ensina que o objetivo da primeira fase da jornada de individuação consiste em nos conscientizar de nossa sombra. O inimigo é geralmente o portador de nossas projeções de sombra. Temos que ter consciência dessas projeções para continuar nossa jornada de individuação.

Ficam mais uma vez confirmadas as sábias palavras do Dalai Lama.

I was involved in the business world, as an executive of large companies and university professor since recently. I was the president CSN, the largest steel-mill of Latin America and was responsible for its turn-around. My first encounter with the teachings of the Swiss psychologist C. G. Jung, one of the greatest geniuses of the 20th Century, was during my midlife crisis. Reading "Man and his Symbols" at that time, inspired me to go into Jungian analysis and to begin devouring the writings of Jung and his disciples. Since then, I've been studying psychology, especially Jungian psychology and, after reaching my seventies, I decided to become a full time writer, specializing on books on Jungian psychology and psychological thrillers. Every masterpiece of literature can be absorbed through multiple interpretations, and yield powerful insights for our daily lives. My first Jungian book, “The Little Prince for Grown-ups“, in its fourth edition in Brazil, was based on the famous book of Saint-Exupéry. The second, - “The Jungian Bible” - interprets some stories of the Old Testament and world myths. As I get older and, with a bit of luck, wiser, I want to pass on to the younger generations the lessons life has taught me. Jesus Christ taught that it was easier to sell ideas with stories. Following the Master, I published in English "The Amazon Shaman" and "In Search of Happiness", two psychological thrillers around the theme of happiness.
