A JOURNEY OF UNDERSTANDING

On this Gregorian date, I am 57 Gregorian years old. Oh frabjous day (insert sarcastic tone of voice). 馃槈

But turning points in one’s life – my soon-coming marriage being a far more important one to my mind – are good times to stop and reflect. Tonight, before I went to bed, I decided to take just such a break.

I found it difficult to decide which version of the above poster I should put up. Should I put up the one I made which points out that the Earth is, in effect, my personal, psychological (not religious) “mandala” – a symbol of the wholeness of self that I seek, a wholeness rooted in a unified understanding of “both geos and kosmos“? (See this page, section “Functional Analysis”, subsection “Extraverted iNtuition”, for the basis of that last turn of phrase.) Should I play with the joke that “it’s a small world after all”, or should I note soberly that we really are “one world”?

In the end, I picked the idea that says all of the above and more to me, the one that states the root of everything else I seek to believe and to do: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1).

But my mind branches out from there in many directions of discovery about myself, others, and the world. One of the most profound directions began (formally) when I signed up for Vicky Jo Varner’s Type Discovery course on 2009-03-16. What I allude to about psychological type is based on what I started learning there. In time I was able to extend another psychologist’s model of how personality type works onto a biblical foundation. Here is how my mind is meant to work as a Christian, with the Eternal God ruling it and the Ego (in effect, how the biblical “Spirit of Man” behaves) being subordinated to Him while being in very close touch with my inner Self.

I used to have discussions of my studies of this particular topic on this blog and on another which I took down. Perhaps, should my very limited time allow it, I can start such discussions again.(讬讜讞谞谉 专讻讘)

“He must be bored,” you’re saying. “What an eyeball-busting combination of schlock,” you’re saying. Well, in starting over on this blog I took out a lot of posts which contained parody motivational posters of various kinds, most of which had to do with personality type patterns (especially ENFP and INFJ). As I’d like to keep my original work available to the general public via Google Images and other search engines, I put all of the posters back up in one fell swoop. – (讬讜讞谞谉 专讻讘)
