Do you want to be happy? Human beings cannot live only the material/rational life, without paying attention to their souls. Jung said that he had not seen a person, living the second part of life, solve his/her existential dilemmas without a connection to the divine.

Decline of Christian churches

The centuries have eroded the luminosity of the Christian symbols. The Christian dogmas that dominated Western civilization for so many years cannot satisfy many persons living in the twenty first century. Since the Renascence, with the growth of rationalism, the Christian church has been losing its command over modern man’s life. To many persons the traditional religions are empty and do not lead to a real emotional connection to the divine. The symbols of Christianity are weakening, and, as Jung said, once the gods have left the temples, they never return.

I am Roberto Lima Netto, and 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“. I invite you to visit blog and leave your comment at:  www.HappinessAcademyOnline.org.

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.
