Welcome to Lecture 9 (Love Potion #9) of The Red Book series with Robbie Bosnak!
Sorry about the delay in introducing this one.
Janet and I were in Los Angeles last week with Machiel completing the three year Embodied Imagination training with Robbie and Jill. It was amazing! And we graduated!! Now available for deep, embodied work with the imaginal through dreams, memories and symptoms!!
This section of the Red Book as Robbie points out is right in the middle, just where ‘Jung’ meets Ishtobar the Sun God as he moves towards ‘meaning’ and the source in the East. I love how it is said that as ‘Jung’ moves in the direction, what he moves towards starts moving towards him as well.
So much like the work with the Other in the dream world, when through paying attention to the image / Other we allow it to move towards us, reveal itself through embodiment and our participation with it.
And when they meet and ‘Jung” introduces science and measurement to Izdubar it is poison to him because not only does ‘Jung’ introduce science and measurement to Ishtobar but as he does so he is introducing Sciences notion that if something can’t be measured it can’t exist. So of course it lames him and brings him down!
No wonder that so many of us in this world have complexes, and such a difficult existing in a world that says that so much of who we are doesn’t exist!
What really hit me in this recap of session 8 is when a great paradigm shift is occurring (like now) Changed by the gods, and you bring a grand vision directly into the world it will be hacked to pieces, “the nearness of God makes people rave.”
You have to shrink it down to a manageable size that can incubate “with the magical warmth of your gaze.”
This is so much I am going to stop now and we will come to the incantations later.
