COLLECTED WORKS
Carl Jung

1 "Ultimately, every individual life is at the same time the eternal life of the species." 'Psychology and Religion'

2 "Man contains within himself a replica of the world…This is the microcosm in man."

3 "The goal of psychological, as of biological development is self-realization….self-realization – to put it in religious or metaphysical terms – amounts to God's incarnation."

4 "Metaphysical views are of the utmost importance for the well-being of the human psyche." 'On the Nature of Dreams'

5 "All life is bound to individual carriers who realize it…and every carrier is charged with an individual destiny and destination, and the realization of these alone makes sense of life."

6 "Despite the causal nexus man does enjoy a feeling of freedom, which is identical with autonomy of consciousness. However much the ego can be proved to be dependent and preconditioned, it cannot be convinced that it has no freedom."

7 "Man is an image of the great world, and is called the microcosm or litle world….Therefore, to know the heaven and earth of man, is the same as to have a full and complete knowledge of the whole world and of the things of nature." 'Theatrum Chemicum', VI

8 "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."

9 "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."

10 "What happens in the life of Christ happens always and everywhere. Christ himself is the typical dying and self-transforming God." Psychology and Religion

11 "God clothes himself in our human nature."

12 "When I say as a psychologist that God is an archetype, I mean by that the 'type' in the psyche. The word 'type' is, as we know, derived from (the Greek word for) 'blow' or 'imprint'; thus an archetype presupposes an imprinter." 'Psychology and Alchemy'

13 “If a union is to take place between opposites like spirit and matter, conscious and unconscious, bright and dark, and so on, it will happen in a third thing, which represents not a compromise but something new.”

14 "Beauty, greatness, and holiness…are vital realities without which human existence would be superlatively stupid."

15 "Since olden times the circle with a centre has been a symbol for the Deity, illustrating the wholeness of God incarnate."

16 "However we may picture the relationship between God and soul, one thing is certain: that the soul cannot be 'nothing but'. On the contrary it has the dignity of an entity endowed with consciousness of a relationship to Deity." 'Introduction to the Religious and Psychological Problems of Alchemy'

17 "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.'"

18 "I believe in the Word become flesh, in the spirit-filled body, where yang and yin are wedded into a living form."

19 "God made man to partake of his glory and created him in his image."

20 "The human psyche is a complex whole actuated not only by instinctual processes and personal relationships, but by the spiritual needs and supra-personal currents of the time."

21 "Though synchronistic phenomena occur in time and space they manifest a remarkable independence of both these indispensable determinants of physical existence and hence do not conform to the law of causality."

22 "Imagination is a concentrated extract of the life forces, both physical and psychic." 'Psychology and Alchemy'

23 “For the One is the whole;…because of the One everything is.” Barnaud

24 "What would the rainbow be were it not limned against the lowering cloud?"

25 "Light presupposes darkness. Darkness fosters vision, obscurity demands clarification, diversity calls for unity and discord for harmony."

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
