I’ve been reading about mothers characters tonight for Mother’s Day. I found a really great blog that I can’t wait to read more of. The author writes about several topics I can’t wait to read about. The blog is http://talesoffaerie.blogspot.com/
And I read and learned about Carl Jung and his archetypes. I learned that Mr. Jung and I share similar ideas.
I love it when that happens. When I have thoughts and ideas about subjects and then I learn that someone else has already had the same thoughts, theorized about them, wrote essays o them, and even named them. I think aha! I knew it!
Also I love how things connect. In the first blog I found, the different posts in the blog are on things I have thought about writing! And it’s good to see that someone else has had similar ideas.
This used to bother me. If I had an idea for something, and someone else did something similar, I would think, oh what’s the point not?
But now I think I’ve changed my mind. I like to find similar things, because I can draw inspiration from it, and whatever I had originally wanted to do wasn’t exactly what they did anyways.
Jung says that “The mother archetype is symbolized by the primordial mother or “earth mother” of mythology, by Eve and Mary in western traditions, and by less personal symbols such as the church, the nation, a forest, or the ocean. According to Jung, someone whose own mother failed to satisfy the demands of the archetype may well be one that spends his or her life seeking comfort in the church, or in identification with “the motherland,” or in meditating upon the figure of Mary, or in a life at sea.” That quote is taken from http://webspace.ship.edu/cgboer/jung.html
