...the inner depths...the further reaches...



As we wander in the mazes of the psyche,
we come upon a secret joy
that reconciles us to our path...
We find not deadly boredom
but our inner partner.
When we stand alone,
a companion appears.

~Carl Jung


Only when
all the crutches and props
are broken...
and there is no hope for security,
does it become possible
to experience...the archetype of meaning.

~Carl Jung


An inner wholeness presses its still unfulfilled claims upon us.

~Emma Jung


There is in the psyche
a process
that seeks its own goal
no matter what
the external factors may be.

~Carl Jung


We can easily understand
the resurrection idea:
we are not completely
subjected to the powers of annihilation
because our psychic totality
reaches beyond
the barrier of space and time.

~Carl Jung


We know the immensities of space
better than we know our own depths,
where, even though we do not understand it,
we can listen directly
to the throb of creation.

~Carl Jung
