Some Carl Jung Quotations XXVII





Natural life is the nourishing of the Soul ~Carl Jung, CW 8, Para 800.



The farmer is still closer to these layers. In tilling the earth he moves around within a very narrow radius, but he moves on his own land. ~Carl Jung, Man and his Environment; C.G. Jung Speaking; Pages 201-203



The earth has a spirit of her own, a beauty of her own. ~Carl Jung, Visons Seminar, Page 133


I am fully committed to the idea that human existence should be rooted in the earth. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking, Page 204


To ascribe infinite evil to man and all the good to God would make man much too important: he would be as big as God, because light and the absence of light are equal, they belong together in order to make the whole. ~Carl Jung, Zarathustra Seminar, Page 929


If you yourself can provide for it, then you are the whole mystery of the church: you are the transubstantiation. ~Carl Jung, Zarathustra Seminar, Pages 1012-1013

So "I" is as if it were something abstract, yet in a vague way it coincides with your body; when you say "I" you beat your chest for instance, to emphasize the "I." ~Carl Jung, Zarathustra Seminar, Page 361.


So whatever comes from behind comes from the shadow, from the darkness of the unconscious, and because you have no eyes there, and because you wear no neck amulet to ward off evil influences, that thing gets at you, possesses and obsesses you. ~Carl Jung, Zarathustra Seminar, Page 1265.

The self is a fact of nature and always appears as such in immediate experiences, in dreams and visions, and so on; it is the spirit in the stone, the great secret which has to be worked out, to be extracted from nature, because it is buried in nature herself. ~Carl Jung, Zarathustra Seminar, Page 977.


It is even very important that the anima is projected into the earth, that she descends very low, for otherwise her ascent to the heavenly condition in the form of Sophia has no meaning…She is the one that is rooted in the earth as well as in the heaven, both root and branch of the tree. ~Carl Jung, Zarathustra Seminar, Page 533.


We suffer very much from the fact that we consist of mind and have lost the body. ~Carl Jung, Zarathustra Seminar, Page 251.
