COLLECTED WORKS
Carl Jung

1 "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."

2 "Wherever the spirit of God is extruded from our human calculations, an unconscious substitute takes its place." 'On the Nature of the Psyche'

3 "Love is the dynamism that most infallibly brings the unconscious to light."

4 "The religions contain a revealed knowledge that was originally hidden, and they set forth the secrets of the soul in glorious images. Their temples and their sacred writings proclaim in image and word the doctrine hallowed from of old, making it accessible to every believing heart, every sensitive vision, every farthest range of thought."

5 "The inner spiritual man bears a resemblance to Christ."

6 "The contents of the collective unconscious are the results of the psychic functioning of our whole ancestry; in their totality, they compose a natural world-image, the condensation of millions of years of human experience."

7 "There was a time when the utterances of mythology were entirely original, when they were numinous experiences, and anyone who takes the trouble can observe these subjective experiences even today."

8 "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'

9 "Love makes a man better, hate makes him worse – even when that man is oneself."

10 "The circle, as the symbol of completeness and perfect being, is a widespread expression for heaven, sun, and God; it also expresses the primoridal image of man and the soul."

11 "The point is identical with the scintilla, the 'little soul-spark' of Meister Eckhart. We find it already in the teachings of Saturninus. Similarly Heraclitus is said to have conceived the soul as a 'spark of stellar essence.' Hippolytus says that in the doctrine of the Sethians the darkness 'held the brightness and the spark of light in thrall', and that this 'smallest of sparks' was finely mingled in the dark waters below….Alchemy, too, has its doctrine of the scintilla. It is the fiery centre of the earth, where the four elements 'project their seed in ceaseless movement'….In the centre dwells the Archaeus, the servant of nature, whom Paracelsus also calls Vulcan, identifying him with the Adech, the 'great man.'"

12 "Man must know something of God's nature and of metaphysical processes if he is to understand himself and thereby achieve gnosis of the Divine."

13 "Empirically it can be established, with a sufficient degree of probability, that there is in the unconscious an archetype of wholeness which manifests itself spontaneously in dreams, etc., and a tendency, independent of the conscious will, to relate other archetypes to this centre."

14 "In the empirical self, light and shadow form a paradoxical unity."

15 "Man is a single Monad, uncompounded and indivisible, yet compounded and divisible; loving and at peace with all things yet warring with all things and at war with itself in all things; unlike and like itself, as it were a musical harmony containing all things;…showing forth all things and giving birth to all things." Hippolytus, 'Elenchos' VIII, 12, 5ff.

16 "A knowledge of mythology is needed in order to grasp the meaning of a content deriving from the deeper levels of the psyche." 'The Structure of the Psyche'

17 "In and from the Great World Book of Nature, there issues a continuous and everlasting doctrine for the wise and their children: indeed, it is a splendid living likeness of Jesus Christ, in and from the Great World which by nature is very similar to him (as to miraculous conception, birth, inexpressible powers, virtues, and effects); so God our Lord, besides his Son's Biblical histories, has also created a specific image and natural representation for us in the Book of Nature." Khunrath, medieval Alchemist, 'Hyl. Chaos'

18 "The alchemist…knew definitely that as part of the whole he had an image of the whole in himself."

19 "God has expressed himself in many languages and appeared in divers forms."

20 "Mandalas…are produced spontaneously, without external influence, even by children and adults who have never come into contact with any such ideas….The mandala symbolizes, by its central point, the ultimate unity of all archetypes as well as the multiplicity of the phemonenal world, and is therefore the empirical equivalent of the metaphysical concept of a 'unus mundus' [one world]."

21 "I need a knowledge of the innermost foundations of my being, in order that I may base myself firmly on the eternal facts of the human psyche."

22 "The circular sea with no outlet, which perpetually replenishes itself by means of a spring bubbling up in its centre, is to be found in [the writings of] Nicholas of Cusa as an allegory of God."

23 “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.”

24 "The life of nations is a great rushing river which is utterly beyond human control, in the hands of One who has always been stronger than men."

25 "No man lives within his own psychic sphere like a snail in its shell, separated from everybody else, but is connected with his fellow-men by his unconscious humanity."

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
