The unexamined life

“Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”C.G. Jung


Right now, and for quite some time, I’ve found the most amazing material shining a light on self-inquiry, transformative coaching, writing and Teal organizations. But I’m acutely aware, without robust dialogue, online and off, that I could be deluded into a single paradigm that panders to my egoic identity.


At its simplest, this is no more than confirmation bias.


Do you ever feel the same?


But then again, in moments of clarity, I ask myself if we’re not journeying within, to understand this oh-so-complex life (and world), where on earth do we go for help?


Reality TV?


Food?


Alcohol?


Drugs?


Or work? (This was my drug of choice.)


More to the point what’s obscuring so many people from seeing that life is not lived out there -- change my circumstances and everything will be OK -- but deep within. Yes, a spiritual context if you will.


What do you think?

Sorry, maybe my english is poor but I can't understand the problem. Maybe if you will show some simple example...
Morning. No more, no less than what we seek so will we find. But I'm aware that my tastes in life may not be yours. Examples? Not sure. Tribes. Clubs. Societies. Religious affiliation.

Good evening.

"But I'm aware that my tastes in life may not be yours. "

It is interesting, what are my tastes do you think? )

The problem about the idea you seek you find is that everybody could seek absolutely opposite things and when somebody want to honestly work and grow his children at this moment some are dropping bombs at his house, so my idea is to make together our planet as much save, predictable, educated and progressive as possible, to not let all common sins to push us all to the hell of despair, fear and uncertainty.

I hear what you are saying, and i have the same issues.

But i think i jerked myself out of my old perspectives for non-egoistic reasons (unless the desire for sanity is egoistic).
"But then again, in moments of clarity, I ask myself if we’re not journeying within, to understand this oh-so-complex life (and world), where on earth do we go for help? "

I don't know where within you are going is it a meditation or something like? If I want help I go to people, to books but an everyday introspection is as usual for me as thinking...
Btw, I had saw many interesting and inspiring posts on your LJ blog, very helpful...
