Tension and Release

All great music has the pattern of “tension and release.”  This process creates a main theme, and then starts to intensify by adding intervals ( scale music notes ) to reach a state of tension,  and then gives a release.  This creates interest and complexity in the composition.

Likewise,  in our spiritual path there are added obstacles to create a feeling of tension in the form of uneasiness, or abandonment, which causes us to seek and search out the reason for this feeling.  Then, we build up a desire once again for that closeness, and oneness with the Divine, and the feeling of “bliss” returns.  This is the natural process of transformation.  Love one another with kindness and tolerance.  transformation1.jpg?w=225&h=300 Transformation

The Archetypes

  One of my favorite C.G.Jung excerpts from his book:  Memories, Dreams, Reflections:  I was greatly intrigued by the fact that a woman should interfere with me from within.  My conclusion was that she must be the “soul,” in the primitive sense, and I began to speculate on the reasons why the name “anima” was given to the soul.  Why was it thought of as feminine?  Later I came to see that this inner feminine figure plays a typical, or archetypal, role in the unconscious of a man, and I called her the “anima.”  The corresponding figure to the unconscious of woman I called the “animus.”

  This was the beginning of Jung’s Depth Psychology, the understanding of part of the contents of our unconscious state called “archetypes.”

When The Right Time Has Come

A few years ago while mining the soul, or rather meditating, and searching my subconscious regions for exciting information, I was having a problem getting results.  So, I decided to give up and wait for another time.  That same night I received a dream vision which contained a lady wearing armor and standing on the shoreline of a great ocean with a sword stuck in the sand. The accompanying painting depicts the vision. ( Whenever I have visions I paint the scene as soon as possible.) I asked the lady about the meaning of the scene and she replied:  There are things in the unconscious that will not be revealed until the time is right, and you cannot obtain certain things from there until the proper time.  I stand guard between the conscious and the unconscious.  There will be no exchange until the right time has come.guarding-the-boundary.jpg?w=300

Balancing the Masculine and Feminine

  Just a few words about the equality of men and women.  It upsets me about the way women are treated as if they are the lesser.  I think it started  back in the cave days:  I have big club, and if you don’t listen to me, I will club you and drag you into the cave by your hair.( humor intended)  The truth is that the women are more than equal, and  science has proved it by the way that the brain is wired.  She can multitask easily because of the connection of the hemispheres, which are more in quantity than in men.  The emotionality of women would be far better for the world than the so called strength of men.  It would help many if one would realize that we contain  both the masculine and the feminine within ourselves.  It is necessary to understand this and try to bring about a balance, which in turn, would stop some of the brutality.  I better stop here, but there is much more to this, and would require a book to explain.


Once again, I kept it simple for facebook readers, but thought I would share it with my sophisticated friends.  Things of this nature require lengthy explaination and many gradual steps.

We Are More ThanWe Think

If we take notice of many of the things that we do each day, such as:  getting up a little later than we planned, breaking something that was valuable or very meaningful, or losing things that we kept in special places that we were attached to, or have thoughts that we try to avoid, or run into someone unexpectedly , or do things that we thought that we couldn’t do?  Much of this comes from the unknown regions of our subconscious.  We need to understand that the subconscious holds an immensity of information and guidance from the unknown.  If we take the time to meditate and contemplate upon this area of our being we will begin to understand that we are more than just our body and brain.  Notice that I did not say “mind”, for the mind is connected to the “All”, or “Primordial Source”, or what we call "God", beyond our understanding.  We are more than we think.  Add this to your ” things to do list”;  it is of utmost importance.   Love one another with kindness and tolerance.

As you all know, of the Depth Psychology Alliance, that this material comes from my study of Jung, and I am trying to make inroads into many of my friends on facebook.  A difficult task with "fundamentalist" thinkers, or non- thinkers. Facebook is full of dribble.

A Ravenous Dragon

The soul is affected physically by choices we make and by the desires, the ones that keep us bound, and makes an imprint.  Many of our illnesses are brought on by the repressions,  called our Shadow by Carl Jung, which are the things we dislike about ourselves, or know that we have a potential for, but try to keep hidden within our psyche.  The soul records all of these things and causes us havoc if we do not come to terms with them.  Carl Jung once said speaking of ancient Greek Mythology:  "When Mount Olympus was torn down, the gods became diseases."  There was a time when we used these stories to understand life,  of course now, we are too sophisticated to believe this, but in fact many diseases are caused directly from sick souls.  Watch what you imprint into your unconscious for it might come back  as a ravenous dragon and bite.   Love one another with kindness and tolerance.

  This was designed for my facebook site and I realize that the contents are common knowledge among this group.  Please excuse the simplicity.

Father's Day

Today is Father's Day and according to Archetypal or Depth Psychology we carry energy traits from our ancestors within our psyche.  This might revert back many generations, so we have these energies that come to the surface at times and also can influence our thinking in many ways.  Many of us think that our parents didn't bring us up right, but they walked in all of the light that they had.  I'm very thankful that my parents did the best they knew how, and here I am making decisions and mistakes also to pass on. Behind every good father was a good mother, and together they produced good children.  Love one another with kindness and tolerance.

The Bible and the Sword

Another excerpt from a Thomas Moore book which definitely agrees with my understanding:  "People caught in the extremes of spirituality don't want to hear that it can be source of evil.  It is of the nature of spirit not to be self reflective.  It tends towards action and literalism.  It takes it's own imagination of reality as plain fact and angrily defends those facts.  And so spirituality often has two layers of defensiveness - a belligerent attack on those who don't agree, backed up by a refusal to think about that belligerence.  People seized by the archetype of spirit may be thrilled to be possessed and free of self - deliberation."  I lived in an area where "so called" spiritual people would carry a Bible and a Sword, and it would depend on which way you were facing as to which one was applied.  So be on alert!!!!  Love one another with kindness and tolerance. 

This post was added to facebook and I purposely left out the importance of the soul or psyche,  which I will slowly work into.  Many facebook followers are "fundamentalists" and will not understand the complexities of the soul, the very part that would keep one grounded.  Modern rationalism has placed soul and spirit as one and the same.  I understand that this format is of higher academic understanding.

The Self

My morning thoughts took me to Carl Jung's process of "Individuation" and the similarities of many of the World's great thinkers and the various religions.  The process of finding the core of being seems to be in most of the basic themes, and immediately one realizes that their outward personality does not match this inner Self.  The process then starts diminishing the importance the of the ego and then works towards understanding the Self, or Center of Being, and in turn, starts bringing this to the surface of our personality, which is our main purpose in life in my opinion.  The religions usually refer to this core as the Spark of the Divine, and from there starts much controversy.  One viewpoint would think of this as our "fall" and that the heart center is lost and needs to be saved.  The other viewpoint is that conditioning creates the feeling of inadequacy and the need to search and seek for answers.  My viewpoint is that our heart center or true "Self" is perfect and eternal and is vital for our realization and path in life.

Myth and Metaphor

One of my favorite excerpts from the Mary Watkins book " Waking Dreams": " We have skillfully tried to strain the mythical from the scientific, the imaginary from the real, metaphor from matter.  We have used science to tell us just what "reality" really is and we have taken our scissors of reason and accordingly trimmed into the waste basket the apparently superfluous and contradictory.  We have chased the gods from the stones, the animals, and the heavens in the hope that we will be left with a clear and modern idea of matter into life." Without myth and metaphor we are left with a drab world.

From Electronics To Jung

  In earlier years I designed and made several kinds of electronic brainwave devices to entrain the brain into slower frequencies for use in meditation.  At that time I developed a tens unit that would go into the gigahertz region between 54 and 74 gigahertz for Dr.C.Norman Shealy. This region of frequencies are the same as the DNA molecule and was tested for several healing and regenerative applications.  He still uses the device and many have benefited from it. 

  I finally put most of that aside in my search for understanding of the unconscious.  That really started my study of Jungian Psychology, along with Hermetism and Alchemy. The understanding of Jung's Individuation process was the answer.  This core of being called the Self is the answer that everyone needs to find.  The eternal spark of existence within our soul, and it was there all of the time.  Of course, the taming of the ego takes time, but the integration of the personality with the Self is worth the effort.  Just wanting to share a bit.
