I first studied Jung in a college seminar when I was 24. We read Jung and colleagues' great book, his last project, I believe, MAN AND HIS SYMBOLS, and kept dream journals, which our teacher, a kind and spiritually aware man, would look at, occasionally share with us a note about, and generally encourage us. This led to an Awakening from a depression of a couple of years...The whole story is too long to go into here...but I've been, I'll say, *devoted* to Jung and his work ever since. My main spiritual connection is with Meher Baba (Indian, 1894-1969)...that is another story too long to go into here. But the comsmology and other ideas expressed by Meher Baba dovetail perfectly with Dr. Jung's discoveries! As a result of a number of Awakenings, Creativity was awakened and stirred in me with GREAT intensity, as really the ONLY way to communicate the powerful spiri9tual experiences I'd had, as well as some other powerful experiences that left me deeply traumatized. I feel my life as a Miracle that I have lived through, and in great measure been healed in and Delivered from madness and a possible early death...again and again, actually! And so I do my best to KEEP expressing the "good news" of what is indeed possible (EVERYTHING!) Ahhhhhh!!! I am still hard at work on remaining "complexes" and tied-up energies and life-challenges; but the "impossible" GOOD things I have already experienced give me a wonderful general optimism and bouyancy about dealing with what remains...though life is deep and complex, and formidable challenges remain!
