The Garden of Eden is an image of the Self, in this case representing ego's original oneness with nature & deity. It is the initial, unconscious, animal state of being at one with one's Self. It is paradisal because consciousness has not yet appeared & there is no conflict. ~ Edward Edinger
Taken as referring to a landscape of the soul, that Garden of Eden would have to be within us. Yet our conscious minds are unable to enter it and enjoy there the taste of eternal life, since we have already tasted of the knowledge of good and evil. ~Joseph Campbell
We have the idea that the original condition (in Garden of Eden) was a wonderful paradise, but as a matter of actual fact man has always tried to move away from that unconsciousness. ~CG Jung, Zarathustra Seminars
The first step in the development of human consciousness & freedom involved a transgression against the law of the parents and separation from them [Garden of Eden story]. Humanity gained its freedom, and by the same act cut itself off from the very source of life. ~Esther Harding
Many legends inform us that we must pay a price for the departure from the Garden of Eden and the journey to higher realms of consciousness. ~Robert A. Johnson

My next source of inspiration for a fall show @cactusgallery, mainly the chapter about the alchemical process of Calcinatio. I've read and underlined this book a few times over the years, but now my focus is on finding a visual expression for a piece for which I have the title, nothing else. Rarely works for me this way. Hope it works now. The title: THE CLEANSING PYRE. #edwardedinger

Re-vealing after loss: Embodied here and wholly grateful to #theGreatWork and unwork of inner #alchemy as it’s been revealed; #theSelf is left remaining in front of a now absent mirror.Taking back the gold means re-claiming aspects of the Self that we have projected.To become conscious amidst our earthly duality, we must pull back from this dire need to find ‘it’ out there and turn inward where this gold has rested all along, covered and buried in the muck.You have enough #shadowwork of your own!We cause much pain when lost in the idyllic fantasy of a gold carrier, we not only lose them in our projection, we also lose ourselves, but this is the great work of shadow love.The work does not end, but it has many endings as we learn to love, evermore deeply revealed.

[...] O chumbo e pesado, sombrio e incômodo. É associado ao planeta saturno, que carrega as qualidades da depressão, da melancolia e da limitação mortificante. Assim sendo, o espírito livre e autônomo deve vincular-se com a pesada realidade e com as limitações das particularidades pessoais.

The illusive golden ring. Roughly equivalent to #Dharma, #Tao, the way, the right thing, the difficult thing, the arduous path to greatness. #michaeljordan grabbed that golden ring with every #achilles - like super-human dunk. #joerogan grabs that golden ring every time he grabs that 🎤

The golden ring is the critical negotiation between the #ego and the #higherself - or the sacred #king inside, which is also called #buddha or #jesuschrist the king. If this is the deep end of your soul, the shallow end is you, little Earthling. You are the video game avatar in your soul’s VR helmet. You can also call the soul the Self with a capital S as Jungians and #internalfamilysystems therapists do. 👑

One might describe this as the social function of the Self. Each person gathers around him his own “soul family,“ a group of people not created by accident or by mirror egoistic motivation but rather through a deeper, more essential spiritual interest or concern: reciprocal individuation. Whereas relations based merely on projection and characterized by fascination and magical dependence, this kind of relationship, by the way of the Self, has something strictly objective, strange and transpersonal about it. It gives rise to a feeling of immediate, timeless “being together.” The usual bond of feeling, says Jung elsewhere, always contains projections that have to be withdrawn if one is to attain oneself and to objectivity. “Objective cognition lies hidden behind the attraction of the emotional relationship; it seems to be the central secret.” In this world created by the self we meet all those many to whom we belong, whose hearts we touch; hear “there is no distance, but immediate presence.“ - Marie-Louise von Franz from Projection and Re-Collection

Quote I took from Ego and Archetype by Edward Edinger (Page 64)

By far, one of the best books I’ve read. “This book is about the individual's journey to psychological wholeness, known in analytical psychology as the process of individuation. Edward Edinger traces the stages in this process and relates them to the search for meaning through encounters with symbolism in religion, myth, dreams, and art. For contemporary men and women, Edinger believes, the encounter with the self is equivalent to the discovery of God. The result of the dialogue between the ego and the archetypal image of God is an experience that dramatically changes the individual's worldview and makes possible a new and more meaningful way of life.”

#Sonho #arquetípico de um homem de meia idade, artista e comerciante: “Quatro personagens vestidas de metal descem do céu na minha direção. Flutuam acima de um antigo muro romano. Cada vestimenta é feita de um metal diferente. Uma é de bronze, outra de chumbo, a terceira de ferro e a última de platina. A personagem vestida de platina aparta-se das outras e se aproxima. ‘Procuramos metal’, diz ela. ‘O material que buscamos é o mesmo material de nossas roupas.’ Elas permanecem suspensas no ar graças a algum método peculiar.” (Edinger, 1985, p. 23). Nesta citação de um sonho arquetípico, #EdwardEdinger, em seu livro Anatomia da Psique, fala sobre as divindades #planetárias dos #alquimistas, seres espirituais desprovidos de peso, análogos às imagens arquetípicas relacionadas ao inconsciente coletivo identificado por C. G. Jung. O sonho tem o #simbolismo do reclame de um #religare dos #deuses aos homens, que perderam o contato consciente com seus #mitos e suas #energias. ♈️♉️♊️♋️♌️♍️♎️♏️♐️♑️♒️♓️

A coniunctio inferior ocorre sempre que o ego se identifica com conteúdos provindos do inconsciente. Isso acontece de modo quase regular no curso do processo analítico. O ego vê-se exposto sucessivamente a identificações com a sombra, a anima/o animus e o Si-Mesmo. Essas coniunctios contaminadas devem ter como sequência a mortificatio e uma separatio adicional. Uma sequência semelhante manifesta-se no aspecto extrovertido do processo. O ego identifica-se com determinados indivíduos, grupos, instituições e coletividades (transferências coletiva e individual). Essas identificações são misturas contaminadas, que contém tanto potencial do indivíduo para nobres lealdade e para o amor pelo objeto como para desejos não regenerados de poder e prazer. Elas devem passar por uma purificação ulterior antes de a coniunctio superior ser possível.

Éris, a Deusa da Discórdia e irmã de Ares, preside a separatio. Sem ser convidada, ela foi a um casamento no Olimpo e atirou, no meio da reunião, uma maçã com a inscrição 'Para a mais bela'. Assim, provocou o julgamento de Páris. As comparações são odiosas, e foi isso que a maçã dourada provocou. Determinar o que é 'mais' e o que é 'o melhor' requer julgamentos e a eles nos leva. Essas ações perturbam a participation mystique da situação vigente e geram conflitos, mas podem levar a uma consciência maior. Diz Heráclito: 'A guerra é o pai de todos e o rei de todos, e a alguns mostra como deuses, a outros como homens; a alguns faz escravos, a outros livres'.
A maçã dourada de Éris produziu comparação, julgamento, escolha e guerra. O ônus recaiu sobre Páris, a vítima humana da passagem divina de responsabilidade, devendo ele fazer um julgamento entre Hera, Atena e Afrodite. O inocente pastor viu-se diante de uma provação da condição de homem, que o levou a escolher seu valor de vida central entre o poder, o conhecimento e a beleza.

O negrume, quando não é a condição original, tem como origem a morte de alguma coisa. Mais comumente, o dragão é o escolhido para morrer. O dragão é 'uma personificação da psique instintiva', sendo um dos sinônimos da prima materia. Essa imagem vincula a opus alquímica ao mito do herói que mata o dragão. Da mesma maneira como o herói resgata a donzela cativa do dragão, assim também o alquimista redime a anima mundi de sua prisão na matéria por meio da mortificatio da prima materia. Ou, como diz Jung, 'a morte do dragão é a mortificatio do estágio inicial, perigoso e venenoso, da anima (as mulheres devem ler 'do animus') é parte importante do processo psicoterapêutico.

“The Self discovers a fallen Icarus alongside the forbidden ravine.” Handcut Collage

A sublimatio é uma ascensão que nos eleva acima do emaranhado confinado da existência terrestre, imediata e de suas particulares concretas, pessoais. Quanto mais alto nós elevamos, tanto maior é mais ampla nossa perspectiva, mas, ao mesmo tempo, tanto mais distantes ficamos da vida real e tanto menor nossa capacidade de agir sobre aquilo que percebemos. Tornam-nos espectadores magníficos, mas impotentes. O céu é a morada das formas eternas platônicas, os universais, as imagens arquetípicas. Por isso, sempre que recebem uma interpretação do ponto de vista arquetípico, um sonho ou uma situação promovem uma sublimatio. O sucesso dessas interpretações pode ser expresso nos sonhos por meio de uma fuga ou libertação de pássaros e gaiola dos ou de algum outro movimento ascendente auspicioso.

“To be sure, the coming of the Self is always an upheaval; but this feature is often overshadowed by a positive consequence – the coming of an enlargement of the personality and the emerging relation to the transpersonal level of the psyche. Considering an individuals experience of the archetype, the “Apocalypse” bodes catastrophe only for the stubbornly rationalistic, secular ego that refuses to grant the existence of a greater psychic authority then it’s self. Since it cannot bend, it breaks.“ - Edward Edinger (archetype of the apocalypse) #edwardedinger #carljung #jungian #anima #animus #depthpsychology

Um alquimista definiu a soluto da seguinte maneira: 'A solução é a ação de todo corpo que, graças à certas leis de simpatia inata, incorpora algo de classe inferior à sua própria essência'. Entendida em termos psicológicos, tal definição afirma que o agente da dissolução será um ponto de vista superior, mais abrangente — capaz de atuar como recipiente para a coisa inferior. O conceito junguiano de 'conteúdo e continente' aplica-se aqui. Diz ele que, ao relacionar-se com uma personalidade mais complexa, 'a personalidade mais simples é cercada, senão efetivamente submergida, por aquela; é engolida pelo seu parceiro mais complexo e não pode ver saída. Trata-se de ocorrência quase regular, para uma mulher, o ser contida em termos espirituais, em seu marido, e, para o marido, o ser contido por inteiro, em termos emocionais, em sua mulher. Podemos descrever isso como o problema do 'conteúdo' e do 'continente'.

The Garden of Eden is an image of the Self, in this case representing ego's original oneness with nature & deity. It is the initial, unconscious, animal state of being at one with one's Self. It is paradisal because consciousness has not yet appeared & there is no conflict. ~ Edward Edinger
Taken as referring to a landscape of the soul, that Garden of Eden would have to be within us. Yet our conscious minds are unable to enter it and enjoy there the taste of eternal life, since we have already tasted of the knowledge of good and evil. ~Joseph Campbell
We have the idea that the original condition (in Garden of Eden) was a wonderful paradise, but as a matter of actual fact man has always tried to move away from that unconsciousness. ~CG Jung, Zarathustra Seminars
The first step in the development of human consciousness & freedom involved a transgression against the law of the parents and separation from them [Garden of Eden story]. Humanity gained its freedom, and by the same act cut itself off from the very source of life. ~Esther Harding
Many legends inform us that we must pay a price for the departure from the Garden of Eden and the journey to higher realms of consciousness. ~Robert A. Johnson

To Ganesha, who lost his head protecting his mother’s dignity, and to the new life & strengths bestowed upon him as a gift to others through his sacrifice.
This last year has been a giving of all I could give in so many ways. I’m tremendously grateful to those people in which I found support & true family, and to the forestland in which I live; it’s blessings, mysteries, and stillnesses have healed so many wounds.
May this next year bring us all closer to what we truly love, and even if through fear and adversity, let us make sacred the deepest of gifts within our souls while we are here.
May we support each other as if our lives depend upon it, which they do. 🙏 “Without love, the work does not progress.” ~Old Alchemical Text

ENTREVISTA A EDWARD EDINGER
Qué tiene que ver la psicología junguiana con la religión?
Edinger:
Todo. Todo. Usted ve que Jung ha demostrado que la función religiosa reside en el psique y es una parte integral de la psicología humana. Eso sólo significa que el Ego, para estar sano, necesita tener una conexión viva con un centro trans-personal.
What does Jungian Psychology have to do with religion?
Edinger:
Everything. You see Jung has demonstrated that the religious function resides in the Psyche and is an integral part of human psychology.
That just means that the Ego, in order to be healthy, needs to have a living connection to a trans-personal center. -De la serie documental 'An American Jungian' (1994)- #edwardedinger #cgjung #carljung #psicologiajunguiana #analiticpsychology #psicologia #psychologyofreligion #psicologiadelareligion #religião #religion #arquetipos #archetype #postjung

My next source of inspiration for a fall show @cactusgallery, mainly the chapter about the alchemical process of Calcinatio. I've read and underlined this book a few times over the years, but now my focus is on finding a visual expression for a piece for which I have the title, nothing else. Rarely works for me this way. Hope it works now. The title: THE CLEANSING PYRE. #edwardedinger

___
We know that the Pythagorean #tetractys is four stages made up of three transitions; four at the base of the triangle ascending to three and upward to two and finally transcending to one at the top of the pyramid.Likewise, The #AxiomofMaria Prophetissa reads as, 'one, and it is two; and the two, it is three; three, and it is four and back up again...'So they go: one,two, three, four; four, three, two, one. Burkert states,'The kernel of wisdom is the tetractys, or 'four-group,' making a perfect triangle.These four numbers contain not only the basic intervals—fourth,fifth,octave, and double octave—but also point, line, plane and solid...What is the #OracleOfDelphi?The harmony in which the sirens sing.The perfect triangle contains within itself the harmonic ratios of fourth, fifth, and octave of which the sirens produced the music of the spheres; the whole universe is harmony and number.' Here we have the numinous lying subtly in an ancient developmental scale.The tetractys is a holographic #ascension and is often nonlinear in simultaneity of stages experienced.Think of a map where one triangle rests upside down with another mirrored above it forming a diamond(#TreeOfLife).Let's look at its psychological symbolism in the #unconscious as the formula for the three-fold journey of the lower and upper coniunctio.Following the birth of an undifferentiated consciousness where mind, body, soul and spirit are one(the uncarved block), we become affected and split, forming our ego consciousness and an identity separate from the world and separate from the world parents(#spirit/#soul), followed by the mind's rejection of the body...

What are some of your favorite eye opening books to read after smoking? 😍

This book is about the individual's journey to psychological wholeness, known in analytical psychology as the process of individuation. Edward Edinger traces the stages in this process and relates them to the search for meaning through encounters with symbolism in religion, myth, dreams, and art. For contemporary men and women, Edinger believes, the encounter with the self is equivalent to the discovery of God. The result of the dialogue between the ego and the archetypal image of God is an experience that dramatically changes the individual's worldview and makes possible a new and more meaningful way of life.

“In Greek mythology the myth of Prometheus is a parallel to the Garden of Eden drama.Prometheus withheld meat from the gods and gave it to man, causing Zeus to withhold fire from man.But, Prometheus slipped into heaven, stole the fire of the gods, and gave it to mankind.This act did not go unpunished.Both Prometheus suffered and his brother Epimetheus was sent Pandora from whose box emerged all the ills and sufferings that plague mankind.The process of dividing the meat between the gods and men represents the separation of the ego from the #archetypal psyche or #innerSelf.The ego, to establish itself as an autonomous entity, must appropriate the food (energy) for itself; stealing the fire and the fruit of the #treeofknowledge are also analogous to this image.(We also see this with the tale of Bluebeard, whose wife sneaks behind his back with a key to unlock the secret door and discovers all his past wives whom he had murdered.)This willful act is the grasping for #consciousness which is symbolized in each myth as a crime followed by punishment, a curse of an unhealing wound.This all refers to the inevitable consequences of becoming conscious.Pain, suffering and death do exist prior to the birth of consciousness, but if there is no consciousness to experience them, they do no not exist psychologically (Puer, repression).This explains the tremendous nostalgia for the initial unconscious state (great mother matrix, womb, #transpersonal unity).In that state one is freed from all the suffering that consciousness inevitably brings.Alienation from this unity is the constant thorn in the flesh.These two #myths express the archetypal reality of the psyche and its course of development.The acquisition of consciousness is a crime (think of Job), an act of hybris against the powers-that-be; but it is a necessary crime, leading to a necessary alienation from the natural unconscious state of #wholeness.” …CONT IN COMMENTS

There is in the unconscious a transpersonal center of latent consciousness and obscure intentionality. The discovery of the center, which Jung called the Self, is like the discovery of extraterrestrial intelligence. Man is no longer alone in the psyche and in the cosmos. The vicissitudes of life take on new and enlarged meaning. Dreams, fantasies, illness, accident and coincidence become potential messages from the unseen Partner with whom we share our life.
.
At first, the encounter with the Self is indeed a defeat for the ego; but with perseverance, Deo volente, light is born from the darkness. One meets the “Immortal One” who wounds and heals, who casts down and raises up, who makes small and makes large—in a word, the One who makes one Whole. #EdwardEdinger “Encounter with the Self: A Jungian commentary on William Blake’s Illustrations of the Book of Job” (p. 9)

'The ability to make the distinction between our own will and the unconscious is a crucial discovery in the process of an encounter with the Self.We must first realize that we are not one, but two; there is an Other inside.We discover at the same time that much of what we do in our daily life is not our choice at all.We discover ourselves doing things that we had not intended; slips and accidents.The more aware of this twoness we become, the closer we get to the reality of the Self.It is said in the Upanishads, that the Self is the inner ruler.The outer ruler would be the ego.#CGJung states, ‘The Self is a true “complexio oppositorum”…The importance of #consciousness should not be underrated; hence it is advisable to relate the contradictory manifestations of #theUnconscious causally to the #conscious attitude.’Here we have a psychological Reciprocality Principle where the unconscious responds inversely to the conscious ego.The ego’s relation to any particular psychological quality or content can be expressed in a fractional term so that the unconscious manifestation of that quality will be a reciprocal.Take an #archetypal victim, with an aggressiveness fraction of only 2/10.This principle would reveal that the unconscious would have an aggressiveness of 10/2.So that if the ego is very much identified with being the victim, the unconscious will have the aggressor constellated in it and will start chasing the ego—in dreams, professionally, intimately etc.This is the way the unconscious works.'EE(see comments for more)
