Hey everyone! I know I really haven't posted much since the beginning... but I just briefly glanced over the last few pages and I think I like what all has been discussed. I find it interesting that the conversation strayed into the realm of enlightenment and eastern philosophy. It doesn't surprise ...

Andreas It's wonderful that the shadow has become so meaningful to you but remember that it is still a part of you. The dragon and Siegefreid for example, are inextricably linked they form two opposing sides within the psyche. (ego and shadow)They battle over what you might call control of the perso...

Does Joseph Campbell expound on these topics (the meaning and imagery of The Book of Job and the name YHWH) in more detail, elsewhere? In The Mythic Image there is an interesting peice about the imagery in the book of Job and the effect this had on William Blake. And if I remember correctly comment...

I am so glad someone started a conversation on dreaming :D im sad i didnt find it sooner. Dreaming is very important to me it was actually the catalyst that got me interested in the realm of mythology and jungian psychology. Jungs work on dreams really emphasizes their importance. The books in which...

Im glad you guys have such an accepting view towards death :) However you seem to represent a small minority of thought in our present society. Death is for the most part denied in the West by this I mean that as a whole we do not treat death or the dying with the respect they deserve instead we rel...

- This is where so much of this intolerance lies: in concretization of the archetypal, mythological symbols, which leads, of course, to fundamentalism, and then, when Science comes in, to atheism, because people don't realize that the metaphors are metaphors. That ex-Muslim woman said that the Worl...

The Denial of Death ...Accepted

I would like to start a topic on Death and the denial our society currently displays toward it. How do you think this attitude could be changed so that both the dying and the greiving will be benefitted mentally physically spiritually and emotionally. Also what role do you think modern technology an...

The strangest thing about the denial of death is that throughout history there are many cultures who do not deny it. Unfourtantely it is in the Western World where the denial is taken to an extreme . Both the death process and the greiving process are undervalued and subject to an unhealthy amount o...

I completely agree with your statement about the real danger coming from the collective masses and not the individual. Jung wrote alot about that kind of thing . The power of the shadow can control the collectively unconcious masses who are united by the seducing power of the group. In the unconciou...

I think that you adressed a very important issue.I would like to add that i think the main problem of this "vicious cycle" is that so many people deny it. It is quite a sobering thought after all it challanges the long held assumption that man has dominion over all else, that mankind is somewhat of ...

thought of another thing that has to deal in a round-about way with the question. Carl Jung wrote in i think "Modern Man in Search of a Soul" something that throughs a bit of light on the upsurge of Atheism (or Deism) in the Enlightenment Era, as a way to compensate for the immense role of "spirit" ...

How sad :( I am a bit of an atheist myself but i LOVE religion. It is such a fantastic thing. I forget who said this but one of the 4 basic needs of humanity was transcendence. :D Tolerance is so very important .All religions point to some basic transcendental "truth" of existence they are all metap...
