Give meaning to your life

Make sense of life

MISE & Agrave; DAY

The famous author, philosopher and sociologist Frédéric Lenoir, who has already signed some fifty books representing sales of more than seven million copies around the world, leaned in his new book biographical on the internationally renowned Swiss psychiatrist, Carl Gustav Jung, to whom we owe several concepts, including the collective unconscious and synchronism. As in many of his previous books, the French author presents a way of growing in humanity and giving meaning to life.

Frédéric Lenoir, specialist in existential questions, who caresses themes related to happiness and well-being, where a touch of spirituality is added, in this new work wanted to focus on the master of psychiatry, the one whom the today we simply name Jung. The author also considers that Jung, who died in 1961, is undoubtedly the one who has gone the furthest in understanding human beings, however complex they may be, in addition to giving meaning to existence.

If Jung was for a few years a close collaborator of Sigmund Freud, certain existential questions made him move away from it, even if he made some enemies on the Freudian side. In addition, Jung has come under attack from theologians and religious authorities, not least because of his criticism of religion. These visionary ideas about the unconscious and synchronism ran counter to traditional Christian beliefs. Back then, deciphering the messages of one's subconscious through dreams and bridging psychology and quantum physics was not conservative.

In addition, Jung, with his openness and his own experiences, developed his theory of synchroni-cities. So when you're interested in a question and looking for answers, synchronicity will make the answers come on their own as long as you pay attention to various signs that come to you at the right time. His vision ensures that he will also be interested in phenomena that are said to be paranormal, in particular clairvoyance, telepathy and spiritualism. Unlike Freud who claimed that all of these phenomena were illusions, Jung firmly believes that most of these phenomena actually exist, even though scientifically it is impossible to prove anything. & Nbsp;

A sense of existence

Among Jung's great theories, who longed for a better world, perhaps the strongest is the importance of making sense of life. The collapse of religious beliefs in our Western world has left a great void in this regard. When we are unable to make sense of existence and our life, we fall into anxiety or discomfort. Conversely, those who manage to find their way and thus give meaning to life are those who are less prone to psychological suffering. Meaning makes life's many difficulties and pitfalls more bearable. Even though this famous meaning is hard to find, the work is worth it. This is called self-realization in an area that is close to our hearts and which often leads to a fulfilling life and a feeling of fullness. & Nbsp;
