Dr. Daniel Z. Lieberman: Science, Ancient Magic & The Unconscious Mind – TPS525
Dr. Dan Lieberman is a Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at George Washington University. He is the Co-author of the international bestseller The Molecule of More, which has been translated into 20 languages. He is also the Author of the recently published Spellbound: Modern Science, Ancient Magic, and the Hidden Potential of the Unconscious Mind.
Dr. Lieberman explains how his interest in the topics found in his new book started in the 1980s when he stumbled upon the works of Carl Jung and was blown away.
He doesn’t talk about synchronicity because he wanted to talk about mysticism from a scientific viewpoint.
In his book, Dr. Lieberman says that “the purpose of life is to become your true self”. This is harder than it sounds because we tend to learn through suffering.
The unconscious mind has a profound effect on how we experience life and who we are.
The pain and suffering of life exists in the service of growth.
“The shadow” part of us forms when we push away all the things that we think is wrong to be. But at some point, we have to deal with this shadow.
The more we allow ourselves to feel the darkness within ourselves, the easier it is to let it go. The polarization that is happening now is because people are afraid to acknowledge their shadow.
The closer we get to our true self the more unique we become.
Cultivating awareness is essential.
Inspiration can change the course of our life. Inspiration can change history.
The vast majority of our lives is driven by our unconscious.
Dr. Lieberman talks about the three forms of meditation that he discusses in his book including focused awareness.
