COLLECTED WORKS
Carl Jung

1 “Everything divided and different belongs to one and the same world, which is a postulate whose probability is vouched for by the fact that until now no one has been able to discover a world in which the known laws of nature are invalid.”

2 "He [Christ] reigns and rules over all things in equal power and glory (Ps. 8), and by his most powerful word preserveth and upholdeth all things (Hebr. 1) and maketh all things one (Acts 17)." 'Aquarium sapientium'

3 "That there is something beyond the borderline, beyond the frontiers of knowledge, is shown by the archetypes and most clearly of all, by numbers, which this side of the border are quantities but on the other side are autonomous psychic entities, capable of making qualitative statements which manifest themselves in a priori patterns of order." 'Flying Saucers: a Modern Myth of Things Seen in the Skies'

4 "From the unconscious there emanate determining influences which, independently of tradition, guarantee in every single individual a similarity and even a sameness of experience, and also of the way it is represented imaginatively."

5 “According to Basilius Valentinus, the earth is inhabited by a spirit that is its life and soul. All created things, minerals included, draw their strength from the earth-spirit. This spirit is life…and it gives nourishment to all the living things it shelters in its womb.”

6 “All things proceed from the meditation of the One.”

7 "Behind the opposites and in the opposites is true reality, which sees and comprehends the whole."

8 "In myths and fairytales, as in dreams, the psyche tells its own story, and the interplay of the archetypes is revealed in its natural setting as 'formation, transformation/the eternal Mind's eternal recreation.'"

9 "Myth is the primordial language natural to these (unconscious) psychic processes, and no intellectual formulation comes anywhere near the richness and expressiveness of mythical imagery." 'Psychology and Alchemy'

10 "It can be ascertained with reasonable certainty from the literary records of the past that at least the universal human facts were felt and thought about in very much the same way at all times. Were this not so, all intelligent historiography and all understanding of historical texts would be impossible. Naturally there are differences,…but these differences are mostly on the surface only and lose their significance the more deeply one penetrates into the meaning of the fundamental motifs."

11 “The substance that harbours the divine secret is everywhere, including the human body. It can be had for the asking and can be found anywhere.”

12 "All pristine things…have a touching, magical beauty, for in its nascent state each thing after its kind is the most precious, the most desirable, the tenderest thing in the world, being a reflection of the infinite love and goodness of the Creator."

13 "The one attracts the one, and the one rules the one…It is the whole in all things. And it has life and spirit." Zosimos, 3rd century Alchemist, 'Alch. Grecs', III, ix

14 "Although 'wholeness' seems at first sight to be nothing but an abstract idea, it is nevertheless empirical in so far as it is anticipated by the psyche in the form of spontaneous or autonomous symbols. These are the quaternity or mandala symbols, which occur not only in the dreams of modern people who have never heard of them, but are widely disseminated in the historical records of many peoples and many epochs. Their significance as symbols of unity and totality is amply confirmed by history as well as by empirical psychology. What at first looks like an abstract idea stands in reality for something that exists and can be experienced, that demonstrates its a priori presence spontaneously."

15 "The self is made manifest in the opposites and in the conflict between them; it is a 'coincidentia oppositorum'."

16 "Morality..is a function of the human soul, as old as humanity itself. Morality is not imposed from outside; we have it in ourselves from the start."

17 "The greatest and best thoughts of man shape themselves upon these primoridial images (the archetypes) as upon a blueprint."

18 "This idea of immortality of the individual and of his imperishable worth can be found on the earliest archaic levels."

19 "The spirit is at work in science, in art, philosophy, and religious experience…for there is something in man that is of divine nature….This spirit wants to live."

20 "The self is an 'imago Dei' [image of God]."

21 "The breath of eternity lies over everything that is really alive."

22 "It is psychologically quite unthinkable for God to be simply the 'wholly other', for a 'wholly other' could never be one of the soul's deepest and closest intimacies – which is precisely what God is." 'Psychology and Alchemy'

23 "Self-realization or – what comes to the same thing – the urge to individuation gathers together what is scattered and multifarious, and exalts it to the original form of the One."

24 "A movement that grips a whole nation must have matured in every individual as well."

25 "In my experience it is of considerable practical importance that the symbols aiming at wholeness should be correctly understood…They are the remedy with whose help neurotic dissociations can be repaired, by restoring to the conscious mind a spirit and an attitude which from time immemorial have been felt as solving and healing in their effects."

I would like to contact Richard Roberts to ask permission to reprint the cover art from his Tales for Jung Folk on our website. We have a spiritual astrology section, and this would be a great addition to it--as an personification of the energies of Saturn. Can you help me find Richard? Many thanks, Betsy Caprio, D.Min.

When someone hurts someone we love, our first instinct is to attack them back, that is not who we are... We need to learn to listen to our spirit and not our minds...

Oracle of Compassion: the Living Word of Kuan Yin

"A helpful mindset is simple-living and high-thinking”, continues Kuan Yin. “Science is constantly evolving. There are now recyclable batteries, ink cartridges, etc. Keep up to date on the latest technologies. Be aware, set examples and create trends that will positively influence people’s lives and the environment. As I said earlier, however, this is also a discussion about love and developing a greater capacity to love. It can help everyone. We’re all one huge family, a great continuum. Don’t underestimate the power of the love created in your homes and families. This love has an immense potency, the power to influence other’s lives in a positive way.”-Kuan Yin

Soulistry-Artistry of the Soul

Recently discovered this site through Circle Connections and thought others might like to know of another resource where inspirational quotations offer much "food for thought" insofar as the quotations are accompanied by Soulistry Soul-Questions ... questions which encourage one to go-within and reflect on the quotation from a variety of perspectives. The Soulistry book has just been released and is available on Amazon.com as well as other online booksellers and local bookstores. Thank you for helping me to share news of Soulistry (full title of the book btw is "Soulistry-Artistry of the Soul: Creative Ways to Nurture Your Spirituality").

Dear Bruce: What a remarkable synchronicity it is, to open up this page, and find several amazing quotes from the much-beloved ecospiritual community of Findhorn! This is just another "coincidence" for me, as part of a seemingly-ongoing set of experiences regarding Findhorn and the Nature Spirits. Thank you for including the Spirit of Findhorn on your website! ... By the way, I have been trying to log-in to my page, so that I may update my email address, but am at the moment unable to do so; as of last week, I haven't been able to access my Gmail account, and have set up a new Gmail address: roslynrus33@gmail.com . I shall send you an email directly regarding this. Many blessings, Roslyn.

IlluminatingSpirit - Samantha Spiritual Gathering Westhampton, NY

At Samantha's Spiritual Gathering the mission and purpose is to empty the chalice/temple (self) of all things co-mingled on the Earth plane with earthly people and to Allow the self/being on all levels, to fill up with the Spirit of the Divine Creator... that Spirit which is enmeshed, saturated, and intertwined with your Spirit. Bringing that Spirit down into the Chalice of your beingness...your physical body as well, helps everyone to be empowered through their own Spirit guided by the Divine Creator of many names. The Global Network is a Gathering, sharing Spirit to Spirit and I am humbly grateful to partake in sharing from my space of Spirit. Thank You, Samantha Paitakis
