Jung was revolutionary in his request for individuation for all of us. His Mysterium Conjunctionis was his summum bonum of all 14 volumes of his work. Finding the self in the center is the goal of life. Of course, even Jung failed to fully study the Vedas of India which go much more deeply into the process of real individuation. Psychology is the stepping stone to yoga, which is the ancient practice of individuation. The 20th century did not have enough access to the Sanskrit Vedas, even though Bhagavad Gita had been translated. Today we are finding out more about the real self via the techniques of transcending the body, mind and ego, along with their by-products - the family. That being said, there is a fine line between detached self-realization and callous desertion of family and the bonds they bring. Most of us don't know any higher love than that between family members, even though it may be a hindrance to some on their personal path, so both need to be considered - filial duty and healthy boundaries. Often kids are groomed to live out the unfulfilled yearnings of the parent, which indicated too much enmeshment. On the other hand neglecting older family members in their time of need is lacking in compassion. And compassion - according to the Buddha - is key. it is a symptom of enlightenment. True compassion however, transcends blood ties and sees all living entities as family. So it's an interesting subject, getting the balance right.

This reminds me of my struggle to quit smoking. After a week you are actually no longer physically dependent on nicotine, but it is mainly on a mental level that it takes so long to really feel like a non-smoking individual. This has to do with habits. Smoking is particularly a habit. You smoke one before the start of your workday or after dinner. You smoke one if you just want to escape from the crowds for a minute. At such moments the cigarette is your best friend. It's that habit that a smoker must break and replace.

Well yes, but also sometimes stuff that authors write/draw/direct/say can be perceived not the way they intended.

I enjoy philosophizing about abstracts like value and values and real wealth. Money has assumed value because the masses have been enticed to put their faith in it, although it is intrinsically only a piece of paper in the case of fiat and a list of numbers in the case of crypto. Still it represents something. Fiat is backed only by military power to enforce its value, although it was once backed by gold, another item we all put our faith in though it has very little practical use, relatively speaking. Your primary hypothesis that values have been misplaced is valid and due to the brainwashing of the leaders of our society today, the politicians and bankers. We have been misinformed as to what our true vale is, what is worthy of value and what should be done with our valuable human form of life.

Agreed - "money" has value only because we have all agreed as a society that it does. Else, it is nothing but a slip of paper, or a bit of metal.

Yet without us moving it, spending it, it has no value> Humans give money value, can we take the value away?

Really loved reading your story @otherworldly! It reminds me a bit of the self-fulfilling prophecy principle. People have expectations in all kinds of ways. These are based on the past and the future. How we expect things to go can have a major impact on the outcome of something. If you know that your expectations can lead your behavior so strongly, only then you can do something about this. You ensure that your behavior is not driven by your self-fulfilling prophecy. But the first step is nevertheless awareness. Awareness of your prophecy and your behavior. Only then you can find your blind spots.

Precisely so, @alluncovered. I had the term "self-fulfilling prophecy in my mind all along. Interesting thoughts and I feel like saying a lot of things on this topic, so I might as well write another post. Thanks for bringing it all up. Being mindful about the expectations that lead your behavior requires a special kind of conscience, where that individual is both open-minded and humble enough to accept his own limitations. Troubleshooting for errors means that you agree there are some errors in your system.

Hopefully we can eliminate the blind spots with hindsight and with experience, though on the path to awareness there may occasionally be learning curves about ourselves. A wise person learns from others, a regular person learns from their own mistakes and a fool never learns.
