Little Prince on Friendship – Wisdom of the Little Prince (9)

Coming to Earth, the Little Prince meets a snake, and questions it:

“Where are men?  Are we alone in the desert?”

“You may be in the desert among men.” Answered the snake.

The Little Prince did not reply. Did he understood that you could live among many persons and be alone?

To revert this situation you have to relate to people, you have to make friends. That is the next lesson the Little Prince gets when he meets the fox. It gives him a lesson on how to make friends.

Antoine didn’t learn with the fox. Many persons may be living in their deserts, but residing in New York. They shut themselves from any friendship and live an unhappy life. They live on a psychological state of depression

We could say that they don’t see life. As the fox told the Little Prince, we can only see with the heart; the essential is invisible to the eyes.

I’m Roberto Lima Netto, a Jungian. I write Jungian books –  The Jungian BibleThe Little Prince for Grownups — and Psychological thrillers – The Amazon Shaman, – In Search of Happiness.


Pequeno Príncipe sobre a Amizade – Sabedoria do Pequeno Príncipe (9)

Vindo para a Terra, o Pequeno Príncipe conhece uma cobra, e questiona:

“Onde estão os homens? Estamos sozinhos no deserto?”

“Você está só também entre os homens.” Respondeu a cobra.

O Pequeno Príncipe não replicou. Será que ele entendeu que se pode viver entre muitas pessoas e estar sozinho?

Para reverter essa situação, você tem de se relacionar com as pessoas, você tem de fazer amigos. Essa é a lição seguinte que  o Pequeno Príncipe recebe quando encontra a raposa. Ela lhe dá uma lição sobre como fazer amigos.

Antoine não aprendeu com a raposa. Muitas pessoas residentes em Nova York podem estar vivendo em seus desertos. Eles se fecharam para qualquer amizade e vivem uma vida infeliz, completamente árida.

Poderíamos dizer que eles não veem a vida. Como a raposa disse ao Pequeno Príncipe, só podemos ver com o coração, o essencial é invisível para os olhos.

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.
