An omnipresent, undeniable fact is the eternal repetition of problems for living in harmony with our environment, in both personal and professional spheres Do not visit us, a thousand times, these dilemmas? Adrift, confused, deceived or harassed lost in a sea of confusion, wrapped in heavy fog at the mercy of something or someone?

Without any direction nor advice, not knowing where to direct our steps, plying the seven seas, walking across roads or flying over the air, no one guide us on where to direct the ship of life. Only yawning existential emptiness, haze, mirages and Fata – Morganas. In front of our astonished eyes, around the forties, the initial enthusiasm end up in disappointmenttragic but logic‘ given the massive manipulation of all kind of information (including archetypes).

I have frequently seen people become neurotic when they content themselves with inadequate or wrong answers to the questions of life. They seek position, marriage, reputation, outward success and money, and remain unhappy and neurotic even when they have attained what they were seeking. Such people are usually confined within too narrow spiritual horizon. Their life has not sufficient content, sufficient meaning. If they are enabled to develop into more spacious personalities, the neurosis generally disappears.
