Come to the calm of a well functioning brain.
I just read an article about Carl Jung and his thought processes around the human life cycle.
He thought that the child was much like the sunrise. Not yet able to form the concept of intellect, but able to have a connection with the under part or unconscious part of the self. The unconscious part being under the earth, in the area where the sun was not shining at the time.
Then there comes the time of puberty, when the sexuality is being developed. This is not a high noon but in the progress of becoming. This is the time when the person should be separating from the parents and learning to be on their own. Many cultures mark this time as a right of passage.
Then come the time of high noon and the ability to go out and be separated from the family and build their future life. This is usually a time of intense activity and development, with a sense of being abandoned. This can last up until the age of around 40.
The next phase is that of going towards sunset, the after noon. This is usually a quieter time of life.
Then comes the sunset. This can be a time of intense doubt about the life that has been lived and the greater the doubt then the more resistance to the death process (which we all go through.)
Just some thoughts on our life. Be aware, Be reflective and stand apart from the too busy mind.
