In Search of Happiness

We all want to be happy. This should be our life’s purpose . I also believe that spirituality (not necessarily joining an established church) and Jungian psychology, my main areas of interest, can help us in this pursuit of happiness.

This blog has several articles that I’m dividing into two categories – Psychology and Spirituality and Religion – although many articles can be classified in both categories .

Stories of the Bible with Jungian interpretation

Stories of the Bible with Jungian interpretation

 

I’m a writer, currently devoting myself to develop a simple and comprehensible way to convey to the layman the important ideas of Carl Jung. I also write fiction, but always trying to pass thru them life lessons. After all, Jesus taught us that stories are the best way to present ideas. Some of my books are: The Little Prince for Grownups, The Jungian Bible, The Amazon Shaman and In Search of Happiness.

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.
