  Module 1.1 - Individuation

The theme of MLM Module 1 is INDIVIDUATION.

This module establishes the foundation of the Men Living with Meaning program and explores the problems and challenges faced by modern man. By clearly defining the problems we are free to examine possibilities and put an end to much of the aimless wandering and loss of purpose that the mass of men tend to suffer from...

The Call to the Adventure: Your greatest source of personal pain is the threshold to your freedom...

In Search of the Bull (aimless searching, only the sound of cicadas)

“Today humanity, as never before, is split into two apparently irreconcilable halves. The psychological rule says that when an inner situation is not made conscious, it happens outside, as fate... That is to say, when the individual remains undivided and does not become conscious of his inner contradictions, the world must perforce act out the conflict and be torn into opposite halves.” C. G. Jung 1959

Paradox: a seemingly true statement or group of statements that lead to a contradiction or a situation which seems to defy logic or intuition.

Journal Example

Begin with the end in mind. You are creating the Book of Your Life. This will contain your personal insights, revelations and transformations. Do not write it just for yourself, but write it in a way that it can be understood by future generations. Be thorough. This book is a work of art and something much more powerful, which will become revealed to you in time. (Exact journal I use: Fiorentina Black Leather with Tab available at retailers like Barnes and Nobles)

Choose a Good Pen

Oddly enough a decent pen makes all the difference in your writing experience. I prefer to use a Uniball Vision Roller Black Ball Pen Micro Point. This allows for thin, crisp lettering that is very forgiving for my poor handwriting. Mistakes will happen, draw a single line through them and move on.
