 Madness & Creativity and Meaning Matters

Madness & Creativity
Madness and Creativity share a kinship. The suffering places in our human psyche, so intimately related to sufferings in our world, are inextricably related to our creativity and service to shared existence with others. We experience this kinship in terms of the major complex that dogs our days, despite all our work to relieve it, release it. Questions confront us: What is our madness faithfully trying to communicate to us? How does it lead us to find our path to creative living and to service with and to others?

Meaning Matters
In Jung's The Red Book he discovers that we ordinary human beings are (now) "the site of transformation." Transforming happens in us, not in the esteemed religious and meditative figures, the philosophical or political goals 'outside' ourselves. If transforming happens, it begins here and influences our devotion to what matters and our sense of meaningfulness of existence we share in the world in which we live. This shift sets our problems in a bigger bowl, so to speak, in which the psychoid quality of unconscious processes emerges as pivotal in transference/counter transference dynamics of clinical work and as a dimension of everyday life. Transition to this 'space' can inflict dread of erasure, a blanking of mind, as well as joy of abundance, of freedom from encumbrance, of soul to be lived.
