‘Best be yourself, imperial, plain, and true’, said Robert Browning, one of the foremost Victorian philosopher-poets.
With historical settings, his poems are known for their irony, dark humor, social commentary, and challenging vocabulary and syntax. He married Elizabeth Barrett, one of history’s most famous literary marriages.
A true Master said ‘Best be yourself, imperial, plain, and true’. What else can we say?
We bring you today a quote from the was a Swiss psychiatrist and psychotherapist Carl Gustav Jung, founder of analytical psychology.
Individuation is the central concept of analytical psychology, this is, the psychological process of integrating the opposites, including the conscious with the unconscious, while still maintaining their relative autonomy. Jung considered individuation to be the central process of human development.
I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.
Jung created many of the classical psychological concepts, like the archetype, the collective unconscious, the complex, and synchronicity, and his work has been influential in philosophy, anthropology, archeology, literature and religious studies.
