The Psychological Hero | Aladin-Fazel | Scoop.it
"The Hero-myth is the central myth of Jungian psychoanalysis, because for Jung the hero’s 'grand opus' concerns the relations with the unconscious." Jungian analyst Erel Shalit

The Anima Mundi in Matter – Soul Spelunker

The Anima Mundi in Matter – Soul Spelunker | Aladin-Fazel | Scoop.it
All matter in the universe is sprinkled with a sampling of the World Soul. It is hidden. Most do not know or realize it. The consensus of our culture is that matter is cold and dead. A literal mindset, one dominated by logic and the scientific method, cannot understand the idea of soul within matter. The literal mind would explain the azure sky-vault over our heads as being composed of various gases, but a gifted poet could bring tears to our eyes by describing it in language filled with soulful images

Exactly 50 years ago today, on June 8, 1967, an American naval vessel, the USS Liberty was sailing in the Mediterranean, on June 8, 1967, when Israel’s military purposely attacked it.  They killed and injured over 200 Americans.  The attack, as the survivors describe, was like a hellish nightmare, something out of a Hollywood movie; …

As in Goethe’s Faust, here too it is the feminine element (Eve) that knows about the secret which can work against the total destruction of mankind, or man’s despair in the face of such a development. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. II, Pages 386-387

That is the new religion. You know how long it will take until it is built?" I said, "How should I know? Do you know?" He said "I know." I asked how long it will take. He said, "About six hundred years." "Where do you know this from?" I asked. He said, "From dreams. From other people's dreams and from my own. This new religion will come together as far as we can see."

“The Reagan Show”: Acting President

“There were times,” mused Ronald Reagan at the start of “The Reagan Show,” “when I wondered how you could do the job if you hadn’t been an actor.”

“The Reagan Show” carefully compiles clip after clip illustrating how Reagan’s Presidency was built on his acting skills. Directors Sierra Pettengill (“Twentieth Century Women”) and Pacho Velez (“Manakamana”) show how this carefully honed image captured the imagination of the less discerning American people. Image was everything; experience and skill were overshadowed.

Perfected, indeed truly perfected is he who knows this. /Perfection is poverty But poverty means gratitude. Gratitude is love. / In truth, perfection is sacrifice. / Perfection is joy and anticipation of the shadow. / Perfection is the end. The end means the beginning, and hence perfection is both smallness and the smallest possible beginning.

Gerhard Dorn and the The Caelum – Soul Spelunker

Gerhard Dorn and the The Caelum – Soul Spelunker | Aladin-Fazel | Scoop.it
What he called caelum is, as we have seen, a symbolic prefiguration of the self. We can conclude from this that the desired realization of the whole man was conceived as a healing of organic and psychic ills, since the caelum was described as a universal medicine (the panacea, alexipharmic, medicina catholicaJ etc.). It was regarded also as the balsam and elixir of life, as a life-prolonging, strengthening, and rejuvenating magical potion (Jung 539).

IT'S ALL IN THE PSYCHE

IT'S ALL IN THE PSYCHE | Aladin-Fazel | Scoop.it

art by Paulette C Turcotte


Ours is an extremely dangerous time. Jung said, “…the future will be decided neither by the threat of wild animals, not by natural catastrophe, nor by the danger of world-wide epidemics, but simply and solely by the psychic changes in man. It needs only an almost imperceptible disturbance of equilibrium in a few of our rulers’ heads to plunge the world into blood, fire, and radioactivity.” We, as a species are quickly approaching an event horizon. The darkness that is manifesting in our world will either continue to generate endless suffering and self-destruction, or precipitate an expansion of consciousness and wake us up.

Paulette Turcotte's curator insight, June 13, 2:36 AM
The underlying source of what is playing out on the world stage is the unconscious psyche of humanity. However, because of its obviousness, this fact goes unnoticed by most people. Jung said, “The psyche is the greatest of all cosmic wonders and the “sin qua non” [indispensable ingredient] of the world as an object. It is in the highest degree odd that western man, with but very few- and ever fewer- exceptions, apparently pays so little regard to this fact. Swamped by the knowledge of external objects, the subject of all knowledge [the psyche] has been temporarily eclipsed to the point of seeming nonexistence.” We have overlooked the fact that we cannot have an experience of the seemingly external world without the presence of the psyche. The psyche is the organ through which we experience the seemingly outer world. This is to say that on a deeper level the inner psyche and the outer world are inseparably united parts of a greater, more all-encompassing whole. Modern humanity has fallen asleep to the primary importance of our own psyche in creating our experience, our world and ourselves. excerpt
