Jung with Brezsny's NonParanoia

Our current situation, in the evolution of our species, is one in which the ego has forgotten its true role in the psyche and has usurped the role of central [eco-climate Left-animus External/Right-anima Internal/Left-Right erotic-in/ agape-out] regulator. Carl Jung Sometimes the best gift you can give your ego is to tell it you're not going to be its slave anymore. You say to it, 'I'm tired of being whipped around by every one of your ever-shifting little needs, and I'm sick of having to kowtow to your inexhaustible demands. I want to be free of your insatiable craving to be appreciated, recognized, and adored [rather than to eco-appreciate, Other-recognize and attend, and Earth adore and wonder wander and rediscover] Go away and leave me [us] alone. I'm just going to be who I am without worrying about you at all.' Rob Brezsny [Yet, who am I if, and if not, an insatiably worrying/blissed-out egocenter?] G O Dillenbeck If a cow is given a name by her owner, she generates more milk than a cow that's treated as an anonymous member of the [under-valued] herd. "Placing more importance on knowing the individual animals and calling them by name," said Dr. Catherine Douglas, "can significantly increase milk production." Rob Brezsny [As knowing Earth's humane-divine hybrid climate name as regeneratively healthy ecosystem and not-named "degeneratively pathological absence of organic pattern/relationship reiterative-resonant-redundant development" might more therapeutically label a subclimate enriching fertile exegetical potential for ecopolitically cooperative health, just as not even trying will only delay our multiculturally integrative polypathic healthywealth syncretic-consilient potential, like mom's milk feeding embryonically informing you, as organically interdependent cognition/feelings/intuitions/autonomic sensory-receptors of orthodox health v pathology instincts with DNA/RNA us, despite my egocentric hunger strike for becoming appreciated as an intrinsic blend within our healthing wonder.]
