Here is a brilliant quote from Carl Jung that explains why so many of us are feeling lonely today.
Loneliness does not come from having no people about one, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to oneself, or from holding certain views which others find inadmissible.
I can see why people are looking for acknowledgement or approval from other people. We are wired that way.
Language form a basic communication between two or more. Idea and thought can be passed through if we all are open to listen to one another humbly.
Mature in our thought simply but listening to others people perspectives without any judgement or conclusion from our side.
Or we simply live a facade that makes us feel isolated.
Jung was also an artist, craftsman and builder as well as a prolific writer. Many of his works were not published until after his death and some are still awaiting publication.
Jung’s work was influential in the fields of psychiatry, anthropology, archaeology, literature, philosophy, and religious studies.
