I have spent more than half a century in investigating natural symbols, and I have come to the conclusion that dreams and their symbols are not stupid and meaningless. The results, it is true, have little to do with … buying and selling. But the meaning of life is not … explained by one’s business life, nor is the deep desire of the human heart answered by a bank account.
… very little attention is paid to the essence of man, which is his “psyche” … man’s greatest instrument … little thought of, and it is often directly mistrusted and despised. “It’s only psychological” often means: It is nothing.
Where, exactly, does this immense prejudice come from? We have obviously been so busy with the question of what we think that we entirely forget to ask what the unconscious thinks about us.
Our actual knowledge of the unconscious … contains all aspects of human nature … light and dark, beautiful and ugly, good and evil Carl Jung (via hierarchical-aestheticism)
