Each of us is responsible for our own micro-world, but more important for the world we shall end up when we shall be raised up from the dead.
At that time we shall not have any excuse. It is now and not then that we have to arrange it that we live properly according to the Laws of the Most High Divine Creator.
- Wisdom Quotes #24…….and Carl Jung spoke! (purplerays.wordpress.com)
The decisive question for man is: Is he related to something infinite or not?
If we understand and feel that here in this life we already have a link with the infinite, desires and attitudes change.
- Carl Jung: The religious person enjoys a great advantage… (carljungdepthpsychology.blogspot.com)
The religious person enjoys a great advantage when it comes to answering the crucial question that hangs over our time like a threat: he has a clear idea of the way his subjective existence is grounded in his relation to “God”.
That religious experiences exist no longer needs proof. But it will always remain doubtful whether what metaphysics and theology call God and the gods is the real ground of these experiences.
- Carl Jung on the Ancestral Elements of our Soul (carljungdepthpsychology.blogspot.com)
Our souls as well as our bodies are composed of individual elements which were all already present in the ranks of our ancestors.
The “newness” in the individual psyche is an endlessly varied recombination of age-old components.
it is precisely the loss of connection with the past, our uprootedness, which has given rise to the “discontents” of civilization and to such a flurry and haste that we live more in the future and its chimerical promises of a golden age than in the present, with which our whole evolutionary background has not yet caught up. We rush impetuously into novelty, driven by a mounting sense of insufficiency, dissatisfaction, and restlessness.
- Carl Jung: In Defense and Critique (modernmythology.net)
Much has been said about Carl Jung over the years, and despite the fact that many now in psychiatry and even some therapists seem to find him irrelevant, the amount that has been written about his ideas belies this claim. So much as is possible in a short article, I would like to consider both his contribution as well as provide a possible critique of some of his thought. Through that I hope to highlight the value of relating to symbols as psychological facts.
- Carl Jung and we learn to know our true selves through the experience of outward things (carljungdepthpsychology.blogspot.com)
The secret is first and foremost in man; it is his true self which he does not know but learns to know by experience of outward things.
- Carl Jung’s Red Book (independent.com)
Most people know that Carl Gustav Jung, the visionary Swiss psychoanalyst who founded the field of depth psychology and viewed a person’s inner life as a source of enlightenment and healing, spent a lifetime studying dreams and their meanings. Fewer people realize that the master of dream therapy himself surreptitiously authored a secret book filled with his own ruminations, dreams, and hallucinogenic drawings — The Red Book.
- Carl Jung on the Soul as a Living and Self-Existent Being (carljungdepthpsychology.blogspot.com)
I had to speak to my soul as to something far off and unknown, which did not exist through me, but through whom I existed.
- Carl Jung: The Wisdom of the Dream (Full Version: 3 Episodes) (undergrounddocumentaries.com)
A three-part series of films produced by PBS, on the life and works of the great thinker and psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung. Born on July 26, 1875, in Switzerland, Jung became interested in psychiatry during his medical studies. He saw that the minds of mentally deranged persons had similar contents, much of which he recognized from his own interior life, described in his autobiography Memories, Dreams, Reflections. His lifelong quest to understand the workings of the psyche led him to develop the analytical method of psychiatry. He proceeded by looking at the role in his patients’ lives of what he termed the personal and collective unconscious, as expressed through dreams, myths, and outer events.
- Happy Birthday, Carl Jung! (gointothestory.blcklst.com)
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 opposite, the world must perforce act out the conflict and be torn into opposing halves.
- Carl Jung Quotations with images (carljungdepthpsychology.blogspot.com)
The Gods are even happy to turn a blind eye from time to time, since basically they know very well that it would be bad for life if there were no exception to eternal law. Hence their tolerance of the devil.
“When you are up against a wall, put down roots like a tree, until clarity comes from deeper sources to see over that wall and grow.”
“The only meaningful life is a life that strives for the individual realization–absolute and unconditional–of its own particular law…To the extent that a man is untrue to the law of his being…he has failed to realize his own life’s meaning.
The undiscovered vein within us is a living part of the psyche; classical Chinese philosophy names this interior way “Tao,” and likens it to a flow of water that moves irresistibly towards its goal. To rest in Tao means fulfillment, wholeness, one’s destination reached, one’s mission done; the beginning, end, and perfect realization of the meaning of existence innate in all things.”
