The Mysterious Psyche

Do you know that the human psyche cannot be explained only by the our rational thinking? The scientific mentality that prevails in the Western World gives no attention to facts unexplained by casual logic. Well! How about that?

Jung once had a patient with a phobia that prevented him from visiting Paris. After cured, the patient visited Paris two days later, to be murdered in a shootout among criminals in front of the Opera.

Coincidence? Did the unconscious know more that our logic, our cause-and effect mentality cannot explain?

Jung coined the term synchronicity to explain facts that cannot be explained by a cause-effect logic.

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.

The Jungian Bible:

a book that explains Jungian ideas in easy words for persons without previous knowledge of psychology.



Mistérios da Psique

A mentalidade científica que prevalece no mundo ocidental não dá atenção aos fatos que a lógica causal não consegue explicar.

Bem! Que tal essa?

Jung teve um paciente com uma fobia de que o impedia de visitar Paris. Dois dias depois de curado, o paciente viajou para Paris. Foi assassinado por bala perdida em um tiroteio entre criminosos em frente à Ópera.

Coincidência? Será que o inconsciente sabe coisas que nossa lógica, nossa mentalidade de causa e efeito, não pode explicar?

Jung cunhou o termo sincronicidade para entender fatos que não podem ser explicados por uma lógica de causa-efeito.

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.
