I am here, Carl Jung.
As you have imagined, I have had a very fulfilling time of it in this spirit world. The idea that the soul development is the determining factor in progress and success, was a deep revelation to me.
You are wondering how my exploration of myths and what I called the collective unconscious has fared over here.
Well, they have thrived. I have had confirmation upon confirmation that there is indeed a profound kinship in humanity of those elements that were given to us by the Creator.
I was overwhelmed with joy and curiosity when I first arrived here. I had a sense of limitless progress and investigations into the human psyche. Oh, I was so happy to have found this land of unlimited opportunity and fulfillment.
Carl Gustav Jung ( 26 July 1875 – 6 June 1961) was a Swiss psychiatrist, an influential thinker and the founder of analytical psychology known as Jungian psychology. Jung’s approach to psychology has been influential in the field of depth psychology and in countercultural movements across the globe. Jung is considered as the first modern psychologist to state that the human psyche is “by nature religious” and to explore it in depth. He emphasized understanding the psyche through exploring the worlds of dreams, art, mythology, religion and philosophy. Although he was a theoretical psychologist and practicing clinician, much of his life’s work was spent exploring other areas, including Eastern and Western philosophy, alchemy, astrology, sociology, as well as literature and the arts. His most notable ideas include the concept of psychological archetypes, the collective unconscious and synchronicity.
Jung emphasized the importance of balance and harmony. He cautioned that modern people rely too heavily on science and logic and would benefit from integrating spirituality and appreciation of unconscious realms. He considered the process of individuation necessary for a person to become whole. This is a psychological process of integrating the conscious with the unconscious while still maintaining conscious autonomy. Individuation was the central concept of analytical psychology.
