Carl Gustav Jung (26 July 1875 – 6 June 1961) was a Swiss psychiatrist, the founder of analytical psychology.
The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are. ~ Carl Jung via
Book to read tonight: 137 -- connecting Wolfgang Pauli and Carl Jung.
What Abraham Maslow calls self-actualization is quite similar to what Carl Jung calls the way of individuation. The name doesn't matter.
"The trouble is that Western man cannot get rid of his history as easily as his short-legged memory can. History, one might say, is written in the blood. I would not advise anyone to touch yoga without a careful analysis of his unconscious reactions. What is the use of imitating yoga if your dark side remains as good a medieval Christian as ever? If you can afford to seat yourself on a gazelle skin under a Bo-tree or in the cell of a gompa for the rest of your life without being troubled by politics or the collapse of your securities, I will look favorably upon your case. But yoga in Mayfair or Fifth Avenue, or in which is on the telephone, is a spiritual fake. ~Carl Jung, Psychology and Religion, Page 500.
"The word 'happiness' would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.". Carl Gustav Jung
"The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of 2 chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed." - Carl Jung
"Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves."-Carl Jung
Carl Jung, the famous Swiss psychologist and philosopher, believed that we all channel unconscious archetypes that deeply effect our behavior. We find these archetypes in myths, fairy tales, and even within ourselves! Are you the explorer or the hero? Maybe even the rebel?
I regret many follies which sprang from my obstinacy; but without that trait I would not have reached my goal. -Carl Jung

"Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darkness of other people." -- Carl Jung
After almost 1 month, a social experiment of mine reached an end. The experiment involved the use of various social media apps and the interactions through these apps with their users. My aim was to raise some questions (other than these I had already) and subsequently answer them, about the “masks” we wear in our everyday life and the implications caused by social media. The sparkle for this experiment was an essay of Carl Jung about “persona”. I hope I will find time to write an article about this experience and my conclusions. To be continued.
When we confront shame, we become aware of emptiness, a spiritual hunger. Our attempts to fill this hunger with controlling, compulsive behaviors only lead to pain and remorse. Carl Jung was aware of this compulsive "filling the void." He wrote to Bill Wilson, the co-founder of AA, saying that he thought alcoholism was the search for wholeness, for a "union with God."

On this day in 1932, Carl Jung wrote to James Joyce and offered his honest opinion of Ulysses:
Shadow Work...What is the shadow? The parts of ourselves that we may try to hide or deny. According to Carl Jung, it can be said to consist of energy patterns, known as selves or sub-personalities that were disowned — pushed down into our unconscious in childhood, as part of our coping strategies. What does it mean to face or turn into the shadow? By facing the shadow we begin to shine a light into the darkness and invite that which has been hiding to come out. It asks us to bring our secrets out from the corners. It means to ask questions inwardly such as; Why am I so irritated or annoyed with that person? Where does that live within me? What frightens me about that person? Who do they make me think of?
"When goals go, meaning goes. When meaning goes, purpose goes. When purpose goes, life goes dead in our hands." Carl Jung
"Alchemy is inconceivable without the influence of her elder sister astrology." - Carl Jung

Here are 30 of Carl Jung’s most mind-bending quotes, painstakingly gathered from numerous sources and guaranteed to crack your idea of ‘reality’ wide open. If you are at all unfamiliar with his work, this list will give you a clear taste of the uncharted territory he spent his life attempting to map…
"The important thing is what a man talks about, not whether he agrees with it or not." (Carl Jung, Collected Works, 5: 99)
The least of things with a meaning is worth more in life than the greatest of things without it. Carl Jung
Every time I mention Freud I get followed by a half dozen Freud quote accounts. So far Carl Jung has gotten me 0.
“The most terrifying thing is to accept oneself completely”. Carl Gustav Jung
"Where you stumble and fall, there you find pure gold." ~ Carl Jung
Carl Jung was, during his time, an apprentice of psychologist Sigmund Freud. As time went on, he came to disagree with Freud.
We cannot change anything until we accept it. — Carl Jung
Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside dreams, who looks inside, awakes. Carl Jung
"Emotion is the chief source of all becoming-conscious." - Carl Gustav Jung
"As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being" - Carl Jung
"You are what you do, not what you say you’ll do."
"Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life & you will call it fate." -Carl Jung
[Carl Jung and the most essential causes and conditions of dream processes.] Dream processes follow from several causes and conditions. There are about five different possible sources: 1. They can stem from somatic sources: bodily perceptions, states of illness, or uncomfortable body postures. They can be bodily phenomena that, for their part, are caused themselves by quite unconscious psychical processes. The ancient dream interpreters made a great deal of the somatic source of stimuli, and this explanation is still frequently found today. Experimental psychology still takes the view that dreams always have to originate in something somatic. This is the well-known view of the dream: one ate too much before going to bed, lay on one’s back or on one’s belly, and therefore had that dream. 2. Other physical stimuli, not from one’s own body but from the environment, can have effects on the dream: sounds, stimuli from light, coldness, or warmth. I would like to give you an example from the French litera ...

Two weeks ago today I had an incredible Near Death Experience in which Jay Adams was holding out his hand to usher me into rock and roll surfer/skateboarder heaven. It was all gleaming white and glorious and there were many people there including my Daddy and Steaming Steve Clark but I chose not to go just yet. Jay looked young-like he does here and Steve looked like he did when I met him in 1983. So I know what awaits me and, much like Carl Jung I am sort of p.o'd about coming back in a way but figure there must be something really important that I still have left to do so I'll wait to hang with my friends and loved ones until the time is right. God Bless them all.

Psychology and End-Times Mysticism August 14, 2014 BY: DR.DAVID CLOUD The following is an excerpt from our new book The God of End-Times Mysticism: Psychology has been permeated with mysticism since its inception in the 19th century. Carl Jung Carl Jung (1875-1961), the founder of analytical psychology, has been called “the psychologist of the 21st century” (Merill Berger, The Wisdom of the Dreams, front cover.” Jung (pronounced Young) has been influential, not only in society at large, but also in the New Age movement and within almost all aspects of Christianity. Jung has influenced both modernists and evangelicals. His writings are influential within the contemplative movement. He has been promoted by Paul Tillich, Morton Kelsey, John Sanford, Thomas Moore, Joseph Campbell, John Spong, Richard Foster, Agnes Sanford, and Gary Thomas, to name a few. Jung’s psychological typing provides the underpinning for the Personality Profiling part of Rick Warren’s SHAPE program, which is u ...

The Jungian interpretation: times of renewal and “rebirth” For influential psychologist Carl Jung, 20th century dream analyst, having teeth falling out in dreams symbolizes the birth of something new, although it may entail some tension and it may be a painful process. The dream usually relates to emotions currently experienced as you are go through changes in your life, such as moving, changing jobs, ending relationships or undergoing periods of personal growth. THIS IS SO ON POINT!! I love reading behind Carl Jung anyway.
Did you know that what set Carl Jung off on the track to think outside the box was an event that took place early in his therapeutic practice, when a patient shot himself in the forehead Carl Jung woke up that night with a dull pain as if a bullet had entered his forehead. I just learned about this. P.s., this is an example of the non-locality of consciousness across space & time.
Rethinking James... "The unconscious is where it has always been on the edge of consciousness, woven into consciousness, where we do not look or do not want to see. The unconscious is around us. We are immersed in the psyche. As alchemists insisted, the potential gold is in bad waste of what we have on hand. Working this r"prima materia" has always been the real unconscious task of the artist who not only expressed his personal suffering, but reflected the torment of the anima mundi, the suffering in the roots. I mean artifex for the artist, the creator, be it artist, alchemist or analyst. One who collects the wood carried by the current, its cacophonous, pieces of bricolage and returns this unconscousness to its roots. The artifex works with the soul in the anima mundi.

At times I feel as if I am spread out over the landscape and inside things, and am myself living in every tree, in the splashing of the waves, in the clouds and the animals that come and go, in the procession of the seasons. There is nothing…with which I am not linked. —Carl Jung
So true. Know and be yourself. “Each of us is like all other people, like some other people, and like no other person.” ~ Carl Jung
I have all my 1962 - 1972 Clients who are undergoing a full blown Psycho/Spiritual Death-Rebirth Transformation Crisis read this before I begin my consultation: Every creative person is a duality or a synthesis of contradictory aptitudes. On the one side he is a human being with a personal life, while on the other side he is an impersonal, creative process… The artist is not a person endowed with free will who seeks his own ends, but one who allows art to realize its purposes through him. As a human being he may have moods and a will and personal aims, but as an artist he is ‘man’ in a higher sense–he is ‘collective man’–one who carries and shapes the unconscious, psychic life of mankind. To perform this difficult office it is sometimes necessary for him to sacrifice happiness and everything that makes life worth living for the ordinary human being. Carl Jung
In his classic, provocative work, Dr. Carl Jung-one of psychiatry's greatest minds-argues that the future depends on our ability to resist society's mass movements.

“In so far as analytical treatment makes the "shadow" conscious, it causes a cleavage and a tension of opposites which in their turn seek compensation in unity. The adjustment is achieved through symbols. The conflict between the opposites can strain our psyche to the breaking point, if we take them seriously, or if they take us seriously. The tertium non datur (there is no third) of logic proves its worth: no solution can be seen. If all goes well, the solution, seemingly of its own accord, appears out of nature. Then and then only is it convincing. It is felt as "grace." Since the solution proceeds out of the confrontation and clash of opposites, it is usually an unfathomable mixture of conscious and unconscious factors, and therefore a symbol, a coin split into two halves which fit together precisely. It represents the result of the joint labors of consciousness and the unconscious, and attains the like ness of the God-image in the form of a mandala, which is probably the simplest model of a concept ...

It is one of the most clear and comprehensive summaries of perennial philosophy ever revealed; hence its enduring value is subject not only to India but to all of humanity." ~ Aldous Huxley "The Bhagavad-Gita is a true scripture of the human race a living creation rather than a book, with a new message for every age and a new meaning for every civilization." ~ Rishi Aurobindo "The idea that ...

Carl Jung wrote in one of his books: in a conversation with a North American Indian , the Chief said: white people are always looking for something. They are always unsatisfied and agitated. They always want something. They don't know what they are looking for. For us, they are crazy.
Water is the commonest symbol for the unconscious. The lake in the valley is the unconscious, which lies, as it were, underneath consciousness, so that it is often referred to as the ‘subconscious,’ usually with the pejorative connotation of an inferior consciousness. Water is the ‘valley spirit,’ the water dragon of Tao, whose nature resembles water- a yang in the yin, therefore, water means spirit that has become unconscious.” (Carl Jung, CW 9i, para 40)
We have, therefore, two kinds of thinking: directed thinking, and dreaming or fantasy-thinking. The former operates with speech elements for the purpose of communication, and is difficult and exhausting; the latter is effortless, working as it were spontaneously, with the contents ready to hand, and guided by unconscious motives. The one produces innovations and adaptation, copies reality, and tries to act upon it; the other turns away from reality, sets free subjective tendencies, and, as regards adaptation, is unproductive ~Carl Jung; Two Kinds of Thinking; para. 20.

Psychologist Carl Jung has waxed lyrical about the elegance of the sari : "It would be a loss to the whole world if the Indian woman should cease to wear her native costume. India is practically the only civilized country where one can see on living models how woman can and should dress". A charming folktale explains the origin of the Sari as follows: "The Sari, it is said, was born on the loom of a fanciful weaver. He dreamt of Woman. The shimmer of her tears. The drape of her tumbling hair. The colors of her many moods. The softness of her touch. All these he wove together. He couldn't stop. He wove for many yards. And when he was done, the story goes, he sat back and smiled and smiled and smiled". Some costume historians believe that the men's dhoti, which is the oldest Indian draped garment, is the forerunner of the sari. Till the 14th century the dhoti was worn by both men and women. Thereafter it is conjectured that the women's dhoti started to become longer, and the accessory cloth worn over the sh ...
Psychologist Elaine Aron's research on a temperament category she describes as the "highly sensitive person" (HSP) has been gaining increased attention in recent years, and giving many people a big "aha" moment. Could you be among the 15-20 percent of the population she believes make up this group? I've learned that I am, and finding this out has changed the way I look at...everything. When I was a kid, the taste of many foods was unbearably intense, and certain sounds were, too. I had a vivid imagination and experienced acute awareness of emotions — both my own and those of others. Yet I was not shy. Sometimes I would get so overstimulated I would find myself talking constantly, a tendency that earned me the nickname "Loquacious Lynn" from my mother and demerit points in school. I was transfixed by odd things: once, at summer camp, I stood paralyzed by the side of a stream, knowing that when I reached the other side I would be older and could never reverse the flow of time. I felt and saw things that e ...
June 6th: Patrick Henry asked for liberty of death-- he also asked for mercury, so he received the latter. Carl Jung changed his archetype to D,E,A,D on this day. It is one of extreme introversion. Seriously, he doesn't ever come out anymore. Robert Kennedy made Sirhan Sirhan a patsy for the Rosicrucians. Marvin Isley quit shouting and laid Between the Sheets, of his coffin.
June 6, 1961, Carl Jung, Freud's antithesis, died. He helped me interpret my dreams after reading "Man and His Symbols".
The sun is not only beneficial, but also destructive; hence the zodiacal sign for August heat is the ravaging lion which Samson slew in order to rid the parched earth of its torment. Yet it is in the nature of the sun to scorch, and its scorching power seems natural to man. It shines equally on the just and the unjust, and allows useful creatures to flourish as well as the harmful. ~Carl Jung; CW 5; Symbols of Transformation; para 176.

Tom was a follower of Carl Jung and was a pioneer in domestic abuse counseling. Tom wrote several books on the subject as well as a book on how to beat cancer. Tom’s philosophy was that anything could be cured with counseling, even abusers. It was Tom’s belief that counseling was part of the human condition ...

[Carl Jung on Prophetic Dreams.] Just as memories that have long since fallen below the threshold are still accessible to the unconscious, so also are certain very fine subliminal combinations that point forward, and these are of the greatest significance for future events in so far as the latter are conditioned by our psychology. But no more than the science of history bothers itself with future combinations of events, which are rather the object of political science, can the forward-pointing psychological combinations be the object of analysis; they would be much more the object of a refined psychological syntheticism that knew how to follow the natural currents of libido. This we cannot do, or only badly; but it happens easily enough in the unconscious, and it seems as if from time to time, under certain conditions, important fragments of-this-work come to light, at least in dreams, thus accounting for the prophetic significance of dreams long claimed by superstition. Dreams are very often anticipation ...
It was universally believed in the Middle Ages as well as in the Greco-Roman world that the soul is a substance. Indeed, mankind as a whole has held this belief from its earliest beginnings, and it was left for the second half of the nineteenth century to develop a “psychology without the soul.” ~Carl Jung; CW 8.
Angels and Demons. Amera Ziganii Rao So.had a couple of very interesting encounters just now, while out in my usual ‘pop sorcerer’ outfits. It seems, that just as Henry Miller said, that war is more acceptable than sex, so is cruelty, more acceptable than humanitarianism. In other words, just as Carl Jung said, that he freaked people out all the time by being able to see inside them and by being of soul, I am learning in my purification for leadership, just what all those things are about too, and learning to find the tolerance to go with the force of humanitarian leadership. Ie, just to live as I am and not like the other tosspots of this world. The truth of what it is to be authentic, IF YOU ARE A HUMANITARIAN. Now, as you can see, I am grounding High Serpent Female Priesthood™ and all that is the truth of this world, into humanisim. Humanism, humanity and humanitarianism. Three very different and equally similar words and concepts. Because I can now protect my humanity and humanitarianism with a ...

synchronicity is a fundamental law of physics not discovered yet but suspected Carl Jung first identified it in 1920
"We only believe that we are masters in our own house because we like to flatter ourselves. Actually, however, we are dependent to a startling degree upon the proper functioning of the unconscious psyche, and must trust that it does not fail us." -Carl Jung, Modern Man in Search of a Soul
Knowing Our Convictions We should know what our convictions are, and stand for them. Upon one's own philosophy, conscious or unconscious, depends one's ultimate interpretation of facts. Therefore it is wise to be as clear as possible about one's subjective principles. As the person is, so will be their ultimate truth.C.G. Carl Jung
Interesting... do you believe in magic? :-) 7 Traits of Highly Magical People 1. You have a Sense of Being Magical The truth is everyone is magical. But most people do not know that. Society has programmed people to become unmagical and dull. Magical people retain a stronger connection with their inner intuition where they have a sense and knowing that they are magical. Those who are magical are on a path of freeing the minds of others around them, so that they will be able to realize their innate magical nature. 2. You experience plenty of Synchronicities Synchronicity is the term coined by transcendental psychologist Carl Jung to signify the event of “meaningful coincidences”. Magical people are in a state where they tend to attract more of these situations than other people. Much of these synchronicities bring fulfilling and desirable things that cause these people to seem blessed, charmed or just having more good fortune than others. 3. You can Feel and Change according to the 4 Seasons and Moon C ...
ON WHY THE CHICKEN CROSSED THE ROAD PLATO: For the greater good. KARL MARX: It was an historical inevitability. MACHIAVELLI: So that its subjects will view it with admiration, as a chicken which has the daring and courage to boldly cross the road, but also with fear, for who among them has the strength to contend with such a paragon of avian virtue? In such a manner is the princely chicken's dominion maintained. HIPPOCRATES: Because of an excess of light pink gooey stuff in its pancreas. JACQUES DERRIDA: Any number of contending discourses may be discovered within the act of the chicken crossing the road, and each interpretation is equally valid as the authorial intent can never be discerned, because structuralism is DEAD, DAMMIT, DEAD! THOMAS DE TORQUEMADA: Give me ten minutes with the chicken and I'll find out. TIMOTHY LEARY: Because that's the only kind of trip the Establishment will let it take, man. NIETZSCHE: Because if you gaze too long across the Road, the Road gazes also across you. B.F. SKINNER ...
"If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail." ---Carl Jung
One of the comments to the NYT's opinion piece, "As Congress Sleeps, More People Die,": The latest shooting massacre committed by Elliot Rodger highlights the dark, psychological basis that permeates our culture and society. Put simply, it is misogyny--hatred of women or the feminine--that is playing out at all levels of society. From the current gubernatorial campaign in Texas where the male, Republican candidate, Greg Abbott, continually calls his female, Democrat opponent, Wendy Davis, "abortion Barbie" to the Roman Catholic church's renewed attempts to suppress American nuns, we see women under siege by frightened, insecure, and angry men who often turn to violence to cope with their sense of inferiority. Guns are just a symptom of this massive social and psychological upheaval in the patriarchy that has governed society for the past two millennia. Our, and world, society according to the psychoanalyst, Carl Jung, desperately need this need feminine in order to survive, but psychologists also need to ...
In "Memories, Dreams, Reflections," Carl Jung described a dream in which he entered a small wayside chapel while in a hiking trip. "The door was ajar, and I went in. ... I saw that on the floor in front of the alter, facing me sat a yogi - in lotus posture, in deep meditation. When I looked at him more closely, I realized that he had my face. I stared in profound fright, and awoke with the thought: 'Aha, so he is the one who is meditating me. He has a dream, and I am it.' I knew that when he awakened, I would no longer be." - Carl Jung (MDR, p. 323)
Today's thought from Hazelden is: "Is he related to something infinite or not? That is the telling question of life." --Carl Jung The times that life works best are when we get out of the way and let the power work through us. The writer says of an inspired short story, "I didn't write this story; it seemed to write itself." After a record-breaking performance an athlete recalls, "I just had an 'on' day. My shots kept falling in." Each of us has had moments when we felt as if we were riding the crest of a wave or were being pushed from behind by a gentle wind. The more you can surrender to the universal energy and go with its flow, the easier life becomes. Compare this experience to that of trying to control and manipulate life through the limited ego. Everything becomes a strain and an effort, a constant struggle. We tire easily. By the time we cross the finish line, we wonder if the race was worth running. A better way is stated by the paradox, "You give it all up to have it all." Whatever your current ...
Bidden or not bidden, God is present. --Carl Jung
