Some Carl Jung Quotations XXVIII



Is there any more beautiful love story than the love story of Mary? Wonderfully secret, divine, it is the only love affair of God that we know about. ~Carl Jung, Visions Seminar, Page 492


They [Children’s Dreams] must come from the psychology of the collective unconscious; one could say they were remnants of things they had seen before they were born, and that is really vision. ~Carl Jung, Visions Seminar, Page 424.

The principal pair of opposites is the conscious world and the unconscious world, and when the two come together, it is as if man
and woman were coming together, the union of the male and the female, of the light and the darkness. Then a birth will take place. ~Carl Jung, Visions Seminar, Page 574


In the center is the individual where the opposites are united, the one peaceful spot in man, the space where nothing moves
embedded in a world of chaos. ~Carl Jung, Visions Seminar, Page 263

you looked upon it with the eye that transforms, the eye that contains the germ of what is new. ~Carl Jung, Visions Seminar, Page 361


A truth is only a truth when it lives, otherwise it is perfectly nonsensical; it must be able to change into its own opposite, to
even become an untruth at times. ~Carl Jung, Visions Seminar, Page 1311


You see, all that a man does, whatever he attempts, means his individuation, it is an accomplishment, a fulfillment of his possibilities; and one of his foremost possibilities is the attainment of consciousness. ~Carl Jung, Visions Seminar, Page 759


But such a thing [Individuation] is only possible if the individual in every moment of existence fulfills his complete being, lives the primitive pattern, fulfills all the expectations that he was originally born with. ~Carl Jung, Visions Seminar, Pages 760-761
