Have you ever wondered what someone who is no longer with us would say about what is going on in the world today? I have - particularly with the great healer C. G. Jung. I decided to do an imaginary dialogue with Jung, which over time became quite real. At a certain point it was as if Jung himself was telling me what he wanted to say, as if he was writing the article more than I was, to the point where I felt like I was just the scribe, merely taking dictation. The result is my latest article.
The great doctor of the soul and modern day alchemist C. G. Jung was so far ahead of his time that, more than half a century after his death, he is still barely appreciated. Jung was a genius who had incredibly deep insight into the nature of the psyche, particularly how it informs and gives shape to what plays out in our world. I find myself wondering, what would Jung say about the madness currently playing out in our world if he were alive today? I can only imagine. Jung was of the opinion that "Active Imagination," a process in which we actively dialogue and have it out with the figures of our unconscious, was the most powerful practice he had ever come across for working with - and integrating - the unconscious. I find myself wondering, what if I were to do active imagination with Jung himself?...[more]
