Seeing Yourself Through Other's Eyes

It was Jung who stated that everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.

Herman Hesse suggested that in disliking another, we dislike something in him that we have, too.

This is an aspect of human psychological life that's still kind of murky. We're going to clarify it significantly today on Thinking with Somebody Else's Head.

We're going to continue the discussion we began in our last Podcast about the interior life of the human being. What's going on inside us when we react to external stimula?

I get very excited about this subject because I see how extremely helpful it is to people in giving them the understanding they need to comprehend and deal with their jobs, relationships - even their health.

Before Claudia Pacheco and I continue our conversation about Norberto Keppe's psycho-therapeutic process called Interiorization, let me let you know that I'm working to make Pacheco's book, Revealing the Power of Consciousness: The Handbook to Analytical Trilogy, available as a downloadable pdf book. This is a really great primer about Keppe's science of Analytical Trilogy or Integral Psychoanalysis that will help you to understand his profound work a little more clearly. Let me know if you'd be interested in having this book downloadable. rich@richjonesvoice.com

Now, Interiorization. The word doesn't even exist in English. But it does denote a remarkable psychological understanding. Briefly stated, this is the process of returning to, and comprehending, our vast inner universe. And by the way, if you like what you hear in Claudia Pacheco's analysis of a number of common problems facing all of us today, psychoanalysis at Norberto Keppe's clinic is available by telephone. Integral Psychoanalysis works extremely well in this way. In fact, there are many European and North American clients who take advantage of this every week.

Let's find out more about Interiorization.

'It was Jung who stated that everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.'

Yes, we have our own vision of what a 'normal,' 'acceptable,' 'likeable' person should be like. We all have such a subjective vision of the world. And, maybe we should ask the question, from where does this vision come from?

Hi Ana,

Thanks for your comment. Your question is a good one. Indeed, where does our vision of what's normal, acceptable, likeable come from? Any question that gets us to look at how we see the world and how we respond to it is an excellent question.

What we're trying to show in this particular Podcast is how what we have difficulties with on the outside says something about our inside. Our psychological life is much richer than we imagine, and often we have hidden access to it. So the outside world is a big mirror to what is going on inside us.

Anything that helps us to understand this inner world better helps us to know the answers to some other important questions, such as, what is the purpose of life, who are we really, what are we doing here, how do we fit in the larger scheme of things?

Welcome to this discussion.

All the best.
