Psychological Analysis and other Jungian ideas explained to the layman using Bible stories

Carl Jung said:

Analysis is no once-and-for-all “cure”; it is no more than a more or less thorough readjustment.

The new attitude gained in the course of analysis tends, sooner or later, to become inadequate in one way or another, and necessarily so, because the constant flow of life again and again demands fresh adaptation.

What is the main purpose of a psychological analysis? Many people think that the Ego is the only controller of life. They forget that the Ego is a small portion of the total psyche. We hold in the unconscious a myriad of archetypes and complexes. You may see them, metaphorically, as other personalities.

An effective psychological analysis may adapt our life to the present conditions. But, as Heraclitus, the famed pre-Socratic philosopher, said:

There is nothing permanent except change

Time is relentless. Life changes. New adaptations are always required.

Life offers many possibilities and options, but not all. We cannot live all our dreams in one life. If we are in search of happiness, we should adapt as best as we can and choose the best alternative among the many life offers us.

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.
