Carl Jung said, "Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding about ourselves." Most of us know the power of projections. Whatever inner force, emotion, or energy we have not acknowledged, becomes a kind of demon. I mean a demon in the experiential sense - it becomes problematic for us. These emotions that we disavow are the same ones we project onto others.
We might not make the time to meditate each day, but everyone makes time to eat. If we look at eating as an opportunity for mindfulness, we can experience food as not only a way to nourish and love ourselves, but each meal can become a time for enhanced awareness, gratitude, and joy.
I write about human behavior, meditation, body awareness, and a variety of other things that pique my interest.
