Blurring of the Veil


Have you been reading Samhain’s Sirens? If you haven’t, then you are missing all kinds of goodies. Daily giveaways, delightful All Hallow’s Eve information, and today you can read about Samhain Symbolism in a post where I discuss the blurring of the veil. The post begins with the quote below, and ends it with… Well, you have to go there and read, don’t you?

“Modern man does not understand how much his ‘rationalism’ (which has destroyed his capacity to respond to numinous symbols and ideas) has put him at the mercy of the psychic ‘underworld.’ He has freed himself from ‘superstition’ (or so he believes), but in the process he has lost his spiritual values to a positively dangerous degree. His moral and spiritual tradition has disintegrated, and he is now paying the price for this break-up in worldwide disorientation and dissociation”
            — Man and His Symbols by Carl Jung

This quote also inspired “Flesh and Spirit.” Fly over and read it, my Wicked Luvs. You might like it.   

Giveaway

  3. Oh, yes! I wants the book :) Thinking so many would be better off if the emphasis had been on Jung & not Freud. (paperback)

    1. I can't wait for you to read some of the comments Jung makes about his relationship with Freud, about the way their views related to and differed from each other.

    1. It is difficult to read Jung and not become interested in his ideas. The man was brilliant, wasn't he?

  6. Very interesting indeed. I want to read more. I think we're shifting back to a belief in something more though. On my list of books to read is Supernature by Lyall Watson

  8. Hi Magalay--just "found you" at Samhain's Sirens :)
    It is a sad state, how out of sinc society has fallen. Oblivious to nature, seasons, each other... & they call that "reality." Hmmm...
    I'd love to win a paperback copy of Jung's book. Am also enjoying your past posts :)

    1. I'm glad you are enjoying this and other posts. And indeed, the world has fallen into a hole that does not allow for the shine of common sense. Maybe we'll light a candle one of these days ;-)
