 Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.

It is easy to understand the Dalai Lama’ first advice, but the second needs an explanation. How is it always possible to be kind to a person that hurts us?

The Buddhists say that our enemies are our teachers. They are here to help us to learn our lessons. The Kardecian spiritualists posit that, before our spirit reincarnates in another body, a script is agreed in the upper planes, with the participation of our spirit. The objective is to allow us to receive lessons on earth and progress in our journey of improvement.

I try to remember this advice every time I get mad with someone. I admit it is extremely difficult.

Seja amável sempre que possível. É sempre possível.

É fácil de compreender o primeiro conselho, mas o segundo precisa de uma explicação. Como é possível ser gentil com uma pessoa que nos fere?

Os budistas dizem que nossos inimigos são nossos professores. Eles estão aqui para nos ajudar a aprender nossas lições. Os espiritas Kardecistas postulam espírita que, antes de nosso espírito reencarna em outro corpo, um script é acordado nos planos superiores, com a participação de nosso espírito. O objetivo é permitir-nos lições na terra que contribuam para o progresso de nossa jornada de aperfeiçoamento.

Tento me lembrar deste conselho toda vez que fico bravo com alguém. Porém, admito que é muito difícil.

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.
