We can approach daily circumstances with an attitude of our choosing. When esteem is an important part of our life we generally choose to be joyful. This joyful inner attitude will attract the outward experience of happiness. Therefore the pursuit of happiness is actually an inward journey. It’s up to us to keep our attitude joyful by living esteem daily. Our inner joy leads to happiness for us and for other people.
Who else than C.G. Jung can be consulted to this theme!
One of the best books on the market that is considered to be the best introduction to C.G. Jung’s thoughts is:
Modern Man in Search of a Soul
- Author: C.G. Jung
- Translation by: W.S. Dell and Cary F. Baynes
- Publisher: Harcourt Harvest, 1 edition, August 4, 1955
- 244 pages
Considered by many to be one of the most important books in the field of psychology, Modern Man in Search of a Soul is a comprehensive introduction to the thought of Carl Gustav Jung. In this book, Jung examines some of the most contested and crucial areas in the field of analytical psychology, including dream analysis, the primitive unconscious, and the relationship between psychology and religion.
This book is an excellent presentation of Jung’s thinking on a number of topics. It is much more accessible than many of his other writings. Except for the occasional quotation in Latin, the book is surprisingly comprehensible, and provides a snapshot of the background structure of how Jung saw the human psyche, the world, and reality in general.
C.G. Jung explains the soul in the language of self and ego as life experience leads us knowingly or unknowingly. As one more fully becomes in touch with consciousness vs unconsciousness, the journey takes on new meaning.
I find Dr. Jung’s deductions on things like dreams, stages of life, archaic man, psychology and literature, analytical psychology, spiritual problems of man and the like, just the kind of thing I’m enthralled with. It should be selected by those individuals that have a real interest in all things psychological.
