Mother Teresa and Sigmund Freud had different philosophies on life. Let’s examine the lifestyles and the philosophies of Mother Teresa and Sigmund Freud to learn more.

Philosophies of Mother Teresa

Mother Teresa stated, “If I ever became a Saint – I will surely be one of darkness. I will continually be absent from Heaven – to light the plight of those in darkness on Earth.”

These are the words she stated, and it showed how her spiritual life was understood and of the philosophy of her life: “Come be my light.”

Mother Teresa strove to be the light of the love of God in the lives of people experiencing pain and darkness.

There are three aspects of the life of Mother Teresa, which were revealed during her cause of canonization, which was private. There were several mystical experiences that surrounded her inspiration and how she founded the Missionaries of Charity and how she intimately shared at the cross of Christ through all the long years of darkness.

The pain she suffered was an important part of how she lived throughout her mission. It was how she shared through the passion of Christ on the Cross and how she emphasized on how Jesus was thirsty and the mystery of Jesus and his longing for salvation and love of all humans. In the end, she recognized how her suffering was the imprint of the Passion of Christ on her soul. She was a true living mystery of the Calvary of Christ, that of Jesus, and that of the poor.

Philosophies of Sigmund Freud

When our behavior is explained to other people (i.e., conscious mental activity), we do not get a true account of what motivates us. This is not as a result of our lying; it is caused by the rate at which a lot of people know how to deceive others. They could be known to be self-deceptive.

The work of Freud was truly dominated by all his attempts to get new ways of getting to the bottom of things quietly and bring them out in a way so all hidden structures and personality processes would be out in the open.

The language of Freud was moved with the language of Western society. The terms he used were also put in his theories, which are presently used by everyone. These words include denial, repression, cathartic, neurotic, and others.

After checking out the philosophies of both Sigmund Freud and Mother Teresa, their methods to life are completely different. One was completely and utterly devoted to the word of God, while the other was highly devoted to mankind and the wonders of psychology.
