To add to the below 20 Insights of Jung: In his book Synchronicity: An Acausal Connecting Principle, Jung wrote:
Synchronicity which is a word devised by Carl Jung, portrays a realty where there are no accidents or chance occurrences. The problem is that under our present cultural paradigm of thinking, there is no basis for synchronicity -- i.e., quoting fromhttp://KnowThyself.Nazirene.org : In the February 1979 Psychology Today interview with brain scientist Karl Pribram, the world which he attempted to describe confirmed the vision witnessed by the ancient mystics and enlightened wise men -- and when their vision of man's reality is properly understood, confirmed the reality of the Bible that neither true believer nor staunch critic is even prepared to acknowledge and understand -- i.e., Pribram wrote: “It isn’t that the world of appearances is wrong; it isn’t that there aren’t objects out there, at one level of reality. It’s that if you penetrate through and look at the universe with a holographic system, you arrive at a different reality, one that can explain things that have hitherto remained scientifically inexplicable: paranormal phenomena… synchronicities, the apparently meaningful coincidence of events” More recently, cyberneticist David Foster described “an intelligent universe” whose apparent concreteness is generated by cosmic data from an unknowable, organized source. The reality of the holographic theory says that: “…our brains mathematically construct hard reality by interpreting frequencies from a dimension transcending time and space. The brain is a hologram, interpreting a holographic universe.”
Perhaps the consequences of our thinking built upon a faux-foundational paradigm is best expressed in the words: “The present scientific establishment has grown somewhat fossilized by its current world picture and is locked into a view of reality that has outlived its usefulness. It has begun to limit mankind’s growth and has so increased its sense of specialization, separateness, materiality, and mechanical computer-like functioning that it is in real danger of self-extermination” (William A. Tiller, Materials Sciences Department, Stanford University)
In a conversation with my wife the other day, I stated that the focus on the third-eye by those who meditate was almost as much a distraction and obstacle inhibiting the pursuit of higher Truth as is the pagan Jesus-god of the Christians (seehttp://TheTenWords.com ). Why? When people meditate and gaze at the Light emitting through the sixth spiritual center and conclude that they are seeing God -- and that in accord with the Collective Consciousness doctrine, they assume that they are a DIRECT expression of God -- this conclusion is an inhibiting factor. Why? Because many of these seekers believe they have attained enlightenment -- that they have achieved what they call Christ-Consciousness -- etc.. While meditation can be good, without Self Knowledge expressed in the words the Cosmology of Mind and Being, the false assumptions drawn from meditation can inhibit all further progress beyond that elementary point of development. The fact that they fail to realize that they are gazing at the Light of their own Higher Soul-Self -- and dwelling within the Mind of God BY PROXY -- totally escapes them. And it is this great void of perceptive-understanding that we portray as ignorance with respect to the Cosmology of Mind and Being -- i.e., the Blueprint of Consciousness. And it is this Self-Knowledge that Jesus makes reference to in one of those teachings that were removed from the traditional Gospels but preserved in the Gospel of Thomas (see http://nazirene.org/gospel_of_thomas.htm ) where it states: "(3) Jesus said ...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty".
Another gravely misleading term and assumption that inhibits seekers from comprehending the reality of Synchronicity is the word akashic records -- which is imagined to be the past written into some cosmic book where a being (not wanting to use the word soul) can go and look up the past in the Hall of Records. And what they fail to comprehend is that Time is a Dimension of Mind that not only can be moved in, but is dynamic rather than linear. And this is the higher reality that Jung could not express (even it he knew it) -- because three-dimensional organic man who dwells at an "animal-soul" level of consciousness (http://AnInconvenientTruth.org/#WhatDifference ) can't envision Time as a DYNAMIC DIMENSION OF MIND -- and that all the personalities the Soul has lived as, continues to dwell in the Soul Mind-Matrix (see Breaking Out Of The Time Continuum Box @ http://beingoflight.brotherofyeshua.com/self.htm#Time ) -- and these other soul-personalities who are presently living in their primary time-frame within the Higher Reality of the Soul, are impacting the person you are in the present by their words, thoughts, desires and deeds (see The Natural Laws As The Living Bio-Feedback Organism @ http://outerdarkness.nazirene.org/#LivingBioFeedback ) -- causing what Jung portrayed as Synchronicity. And once again this reality is portrayed in a suppressed teaching of Jesus found in the Gospel of Thomas where it states: s: (84) Jesus said, "When you see your likeness, you rejoice. But when you see your images which came into being before you, and which neither die nor become manifest, how much you will have to bear!" What is being stated? Saying 84 presents what is portrayed as YOUR LIKENESS, and YOUR IMAGES. It does not say: When you see God -- and this is because you dwell within the reality of your own soul-self -- and it is your soul-self that is in the above portrayed as "your likeness" that dwells within God -- and the soul-personalities as (previous) images. When rightly understood, we only dwell within God by proxy. (quoted from Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image @ http://beingoflight.brotherofyeshua.com/self.htm#EmbryonicSoulImage ). Our soul-images referenced above, are all the other lives that our Higher Soul-Self has lived -- and remain in their own Time-Continuum within the Soul Mind-Matrix. And one of the primary objectives of the Sermon on the Mount (seehttp://videos.nazirene.org/TheEsotericSermonOnTheMount.htm ) when rightly understood, was to free the seeker from the Natural Laws that shackle them in the "outer darkness" of mind and being ( http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org ) that inhibits them from moving beyond the "natural" animal-soul level of consciousness that Paul portrayed as evolving to a state of"spiritual maturity". The problem is that because Christians dwell under the grave doctrinal paradigm promoted by fourth-century Rome that Jesus did it all for them -- and they are not required to evolve to Spiritual Maturity -- modern Christians remain spiritually ignorant and impotent.
While man innately possesses the ability to literally Know All Truths Of All Realities, he consigns himself to the dark dungeons of abject ignorance because he continues to eat the fruit of the Tree of Duality, which is also known as the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil (see http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org ). Remaining a prisoner to his own self-imposed mental cocoon and spiritual diaspora. And this condition of dark spiritual ignorance was predicted in the Epistle of Peter and James where it is stated that if the esoteric body of knowledge of Gospel teachings becomes suppressed and thrown away -- as the fourth-century Church did -- then "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error" -- which is the plight of mankind in our present day. Until you stop eating the fruit of the Tree of Duality, and being about the deepening, expansion and transformation of mind which Paul portrayed as evolving to a condition of Spiritual Maturity, breaking out of the Time Continuum Box, it will remain impossible for you to comprehend the twelve-dimensional reality of your own Higher Soul-Self ( http://SoulSelf.org ), and begin to learn from the Indwelling Logos ( http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org/#TrueProphet ).
20 Carl Jung Quotes That Will Make You Think
His insights often lead to better self-understanding.
Carl Jung was a Swiss psychiatrist and psychotherapist who is credited with founding analytical psychology. He was a prolific writer, and his work is seen as largely influential to psychiatry, philosophy, anthropology, archeology, literature, as well as religious studies.
He was very interested in the notions of spirituality, how humans are spiritual beings, and how building a relationship with our spiritual selves helps us to gain a deeper understanding of who we are.
He developed much of ‘modern depth’ psychology, “which seeks to facilitate a conversation with the unconscious energies which move through each of us,” and created the ideas that continue to educate contemporary life, such as complex, archetype, persona, shadow, anima and animus, personality typology, dream interpretation, and individuation.
Jung is often looked at as being one of the most profound thinkers to have ever lived. Here are 20 quotes of his that will help you to better understand yourself:
- ”One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light but by making the darkness conscious.”
- “Don’t hold on to someone who’s leaving, otherwise you won’t meet the one who’s coming.”
- “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.”
- “Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.”
- “The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.”
- “I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.”
- “Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darknesses of other people.”
- “If you are a gifted person, it doesn’t mean that you gained something. It means you have something to give back.”
- “Mistakes are, after all, the foundations of truth, and if a man does not know what a thing is, it is at least an increase in knowledge if he knows what it is not.”
- “Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”
- “People will do anything, no matter how absurd, to avoid facing their own souls.”
- “Loneliness does not come from having no people around, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to oneself, or from holding certain views which others find inadmissible.”
- “Depression is like a woman in black. If she turns up, don’t shoo her away. Invite her in, offer her a seat, treat her like a guest and listen to what she wants to say.”
- “A man who has not passed through the inferno of his passions has never overcome them.”
- “Your perception will become clear only when you can look into your soul.”
- “I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.”
- “What you resist, persists.”
- “A dream is a small hidden door in the deepest and most intimate sanctum of the soul, which opens up to that primeval cosmic night that was the soul, long before there was the conscious ego.”
- “We may think that we fully control ourselves. However, a friend can easily reveal something about us that we have absolutely no idea about.”
- “Everything about other people that doesn’t satisfy us helps us to better understand ourselves.”
