Life changes: Heraclitus of Ephesus (c. 535 -. c 475 BC), a pre-Socratic Greek philosopher, is famous for his insistence on change, as indicated by his famous sayings: “There is nothing permanent except change.” “Only change is unchanging.” “You cannot step into the same river twice.”

The human being resists change. If you’re living a happy phase in your life, you have a strong tendency to resist changes that might take you into unknown territory. You question – Would this change be beneficial for me? – and resist changes unless life is really hurting you bad.

However, it is impossible to resist change. Life changes. You change. Everything changes.

If you want to be happy, seek change. Strive always to improve your life.

I believe that our objective in life is to be happy and that Spirituality and Jungian psychology, my main areas of interest, can help us in this search for happiness. I am a writer. Some of my books are “The Little Prince for Grown-ups“, “The Jungian Bible“, “The Amazon Shaman” and “In Search of Happiness” – Roberto Lima Netto

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.
