Daily Quotes and Reflection–“Being there” the battle between rational thinking and primitive emotions.

Quote :”Please remember, it is what you are that heals, not what you know.” Carl Jung

Reflection: Dr. Jung is advising that the most important you can do for others in time of crisis or pain is being there for them not necessarily your expertise or knowledge. So many of us in a time of need forget that your warmth, touch and silence can be as powerful and appreciated just as much as our advice giving or talking. So the next time a friend is in pain try just being there may be the best gift you can provide. For example, say a friend is going through a divorce or difficult time at their job or heaven forbid chemotherapy – Every decision they  make is determined by a combination of the rational part of  their brain and the more primitive part or  emotion. If these different elements are out of balance then their thinking will not be clear or aligned.. The person will understandably feel conflicted and anxious. Resulting in impulsive  decisions that affect interpersonal relationships and open communication. To the significant this situation will cause confusion and frustration.. The concept of alignment will help you understand why you may have been in a relationship that was not good enough for you. It will also help you understand how to use your logic to help heal your feelings of  turmoil and sadness or anger and move on..
