“Transcending the shadow (Jungian archetype) means neither suppressing it, nor living from it, nor being intrigued or fascinated by it. Once you have travelled through your own shadow you have created the space and time to reflect upon it in order to step out of it and live mostly outside of it and be able to observe it (in order to “keep it in check”). The same goes for the ego.

In that sense we have then become “lighter”, less shadow orientated. This is what enlightenment means in a practically achievable sense. You can live your life (much) freer from your shadow. Completely falling back into it or being enticed and intrigued by it becomes much less common or likely.”

Excerpt:

“In the present day we consume 5 to 10 times as much electronically-delivered content as 10 or 15 years ago, and much of it low quality. This situation is unprecedented in the history of humanity, yet we have no real mechanisms in place for managing it. Of course, logically-speaking, just as each and every person is responsible for their own eating habits, they are also responsible for how they consume media and entertainment. Human beings need space for self-development and with our free time being taken up by a plethora of distractions, self-development languishes. This might explain the infantile and immature actions we witness by “grown-ups” on the internet, a very recent phenomenon.

Similar to how the overconsumption of unhealthy food can contaminate one’s physical body, the same happens with the psyche with excessive and compulsive consumption of tabloid news, mindless entertainment and narcissism-inducing celebrity and social media, as well as compulsive social networking. It’s just that the effects are invisible to the naked eye as opposed to food, but binge-consumption of anything will eventually lead to negative effects one way or the other.”

“My Neighbourhood”, Mural, Barrio Cordón, Uruguay, March 2015.

Street art is big in Montevideo, with interesting styles. Here are a couple of examples which I took pictures of recently in one of the older neighbourhoods of the city, Cordón.

Rustic ‘Artitecture’ – San Telmo District, Buenos Aires, March 2015.

I arrived in South America 3 weeks ago and got these shots with my Film SLR and then as usual I had to wait for them to be developed. I might take most of my future shots with my Digital SLR as it has become increasingly difficult (and expensive) to get film processed, no matter where you are in the world. – Jean-Jacques

Building the New World Within (7) – Incoming Evolution Imminent

We need to fully understand that humanity is in transition right now. One could look at it in the following way by using another analogy. There are two streams. They are flowing at the same time. The one is wide and polluted and slowing down. The other is narrow and clear and increasingly coming on-stream. The fish in the wide stream have lost their colour and are lacklustre and tired due to the contamination. They are finding it harder and harder to make headway through the murk. Some of them have forgotten where they came from and where they are going to. The narrow and clear stream is flowing within the wide and polluted stream. The fish in the clear part of the stream have decontaminated themselves and have regained their colour and vibrancy. They have remembered where the came from and they know where they are going to, so they are staying inside the narrow, fast moving, clear stream. They are excited and appreciative about having chosen the clear stream and having rejuvenated their sense of direction. The narrow stream has a clear destination. It is flowing back home. The wide polluted stream’s destination is unknown. Up ahead the two streams will diverge. It is best to choose well with which flow we are going to go.
