This Halloween... the shadow knows

Carl Jung defined the "shadow" as the part of us that "represents unknown or little know attributes of the ego." He continues about the value of the shadow in Man and his Symbols, "But sometimes everything that is that is unknown to the ego is mixed up with the shadow, including the most valuable and highest forces." Later in the chapter he advises, "If the shadow figure contains valuable, vital forces, they ought to be assimilated into actual experience and not repressed. It is up to the ego to give up its pride and priggishness and to live out something that seems to be dark, but actually may not be"

I cannot think of a better time for what Jung called "the realization of the shadow" than on Halloween. This year why not dance out your shadow by picking a costume that embodies your alter-ego or part of yourself that you normally do not allow or expose? For the really courageous, act in the character of your shadow costume during a party.

So... if you cannot think of a good costume this Halloween, live a little and expand your repertoire. Let your shadow come out to play!

This opened up the sub prime mtagorge mess to illegal aliens and contributed to the explosion of minority homeownership that ended so badly. Once again, you speak of that which you do not know.Nationally, for loans more than 90 days in arrears, ITIN mtagorges had a delinquency rate of about 0.5% last year, compared with 9.3% for subprime mtagorges, according to independent estimates. The reason for this is simple, in order to get an ITIN mtagorge the credit history scrutiny is much more strict than that of conventional Social Security mtagorges.getting an ITIN mtagorge is harder than that of getting a conventional property finance loan. People with the ITIN ordinarily have a credit standing that’s documented. Because of this, the typical history perform needed giving this type of mtagorge is a bit more difficult and even more frustrating than for a conventional property finance loan. In addition, charges and home interest rates are usually higher than for other sorts of personal loans in an effort to recompense loan providers for your extra trouble and additional threat. Lastly, ITINs were not ever bought by Fannie or Freddie.In spite of their strong performance, ITIN mtagorges were never purchased by government sponsored enterprises (GSEs) Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Now I am not going to pretend that I am in favor of illegal aliens receiving mtagorges, but if you are going to point to them as the reason or at least a contributing reason for the market meltdown of 2008, then I felt it pertinent to point out your folly.I don't think we need to delve back into the fact that while Barney Frank was telling anyone who would listen to him that there was no problem with Fannie or Freddie, the Bush administration tried to call for investigations into the GSEs, but the Democrats would have none of it...Reply
