Probably the most neglected part of the human element is spiritual wellness. I suppose it's just easier to relate to taking care of something that is tangible, like the physical body. And we are taught from a very young age to do good at school and get good Grades, which enables us to focus on developing what I call “mental toughness”.
 
But aside from the often dated traditions of going to church or synagogue once a week, sometimes a few times a year, it’s often easy to neglect a very important part of our human existence, that being our own spiritual wellness.
 
The links below are not a prescribed recipe for your own spiritual wellness, but reflect a few areas which have helped me in my own quest for “spiritual wellness”.
 
There’s a nasty stigma associated with psychotherapy in the United States, that I will try to dispel. Desiring therapy doesn’t mean that you’re “crazy” or “unable to cope”.
 
A couple of years ago, I visited a Jungian Psychotherapist who gave me an objective venue for me to work through some difficult times in my life. I still see her once a month to keep everything in check. I view therapy as good physical fitness for the soul.
 
Obviously, one needs to find a therapist who can both listen and provide direction for the therapy sessions. As I mentioned, the therapist who I continue to see is a Jungian Psychologist. I’ve done some research on Carl Jung, and while I won’t ramble on about Jung’s significant contributions to modern psychology, I will thank him for his perspective on the human being as a “whole” person.
 
I’d also like to provide you with some Carl Jung quotes that may be perceived as quite “simple” to understand when you first read them, but take a minute and reflect on each of them and how they relate to your own life circumstances.
 
Carl Jung, Swiss Psychologist (1875 - 1961)
 
An understanding heart is everything in a teacher, and cannot be esteemed highly enough. One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feeling. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child.
 
— Carl Jung
 
Every form of addiction is bad, no matter whether the narcotic be alcohol, morphine, or idealism.
 
— Carl Jung
 
Nobody, as long as he moves about among the chaotic currents of life, is without trouble.
 
— Carl Jung
 
Nothing has a stronger influence psychologically on their environment and especially on their children than the unlived life of the parent.
 
— Carl Jung
 
The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves.
 
— Carl Jung
 
The healthy man does not torture others - generally it is the tortured who turn into torturers.
 
— Carl Jung
 
The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.
 
— Carl Jung
 
The shoe that fits one person pinches another; there is no recipe for living that suits all cases.
 
— Carl Jung
 
We cannot change anything unless we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses.
 
— Carl Jung
 
As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.
 
— Carl Jung, "Memories, Dreams, Reflections", 1962
 
The least of things with a meaning is worth more in life than the greatest of things without it.
 
— Carl Jung, "Modern Man in Search of a Soul"
 
Where love rules, there is no will to power, and where power predominates, love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other.
 
— Carl Jung

A Program That Saved My Life
www.aa.org

On November 11, 1997, I introduced myself to The Alcoholics Anonymous Program. This 12 Step Program saved my life, for at this point in my life, I was powerless over alcohol.
 
I thank my sponsors for working with me to develop the tools to deal with this daily demon affectively. I also thank the Alcoholics Anonymous Program for enabling me to allow God back into my life and heart, for without Him we are nothing.

A Vehicle For Many Religions

The final link in the personal section of my company website is a link to the online Bible. Regardless of one’s religious affiliation, this book has withstood the test of time and has provided a great deal of comfort and refuge for me over the years.
 
It is undoubtedly the “launching pad” for many religions, and regardless of how we choose to interpret its verses, its message will continue to provide guidance to the human race until the end of time.
