Alchemy: The Vessel | Soul Spelunker

Alchemy: The Vessel | Soul Spelunker | Jungian Depth Psychology and Dreams | Scoop.it

Via Zeteticus
Eva Rider's insight:

In psychological terms, we view the  proper container as ego. Building a sense of self identity strong enough to recieve the power of the transformative energies which dismember, dissolve and transform the self to become something entirely "other than its orignal form while retaining its unique blueprint.

Zeteticus's curator insight, December 23, 2013 3:55 PM

Without a proper vessel, none of the processes of of alchemy can be accomplished. There must be a container in order to differentiate the various substances from the massa confusa, of which Thomas Moore writes, "It takes a special frame of mind, a particular archetypal viewpoint...to enter the alchemical massa confusa..." The unconscious is this chaos, the prima materia of the Great Work. The need for a vessel begins the alchemical stage called separatio.

The Coming Age of Imagination – Soul Spelunker

The Coming Age of Imagination – Soul Spelunker | Jungian Depth Psychology and Dreams | Scoop.it
The imagination is not a state: it is the human existence itself. -William Blake

There will come a day when mankind will dwell in the world of the imagination. It may not come soon. It may not come to our particular human species, but it will indeed come.

I once thought of the imagination as things I could visualize in my mind’s eye. It is much more than that. I once believed if I, through my imagination, could come up with some clever ideas, or some ingenious invention or computer code, I could become rich. It is much more than that. I once believed that one’s imagination is a tool to be used like a computer to accomplish tasks one needed to do, but I discovered it is much than that. It is beyond anything we’ve ever imagined.

IT'S ALL IN THE PSYCHE

IT'S ALL IN THE PSYCHE | Jungian Depth Psychology and Dreams | 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

Completing the Work of Creation – Soul Spelunker

Completing the Work of Creation – Soul Spelunker | Jungian Depth Psychology and Dreams | Scoop.it
The Hermetic doctrine teaches “as above, so below,” the correspondence of the macrocosm and microcosm. Our inner lives are infinite universes, just as the physical universe is infinite and expanding constantly. It is no coincidence that some of the secrets of Nature were revealed to the discoverers of quantum physics in the twentieth century, and in other important fields of study. Such monumental knowledge is given for a reason. Mankind is moving closer and closer to what Jean Gebser calls the “integral structure of consciousness,” or what Jesus meant when He said, “Ye are gods.” It may not look like it on the surface now, but it will come. Imagine what the Neanderthals must have thought about being surmounted and overcome by Homo sapiens. Did they suffer from angst, or feelings of meaninglessness? Maybe not, but they certainly suffered in some ways.

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."

Soul Spelunker - Exploring the caverns and grottoes of Soul. | Jungian Depth Psychology and Dreams | Scoop.it
In Religion and the Rebel, Wilson wants to define what he means by “heaven” and “supersanity,” but first he wants to get at the true meaning of Existenzphilosophie, or at least “the meaning that the Outsider attaches to it” (ibid.). This is a German word that means “the philosophy of existence.” It was also the title of a book by philosopher, Karl Jaspers, published in 1938.

One begins to understand the meaning by accepting the notion that all humans make a complete mess of their lives. “The Outsider cannot help feeling that men do not learn from experience — not the really important things” (ibid.). It doesn’t matter how charmed a life a person has lived, they always seem to falter at some point and come tumbling down. One could point at countless examples.

The Anima Mundi in Matter – Soul Spelunker | Jungian Depth Psychology and Dreams | 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
