Ron I send you a link in the Jung in the weeds thread concerning your question. James I also read the pdf very cool stuff indeed. Andreas thank you so very much; I think you were "spot on"; and if you don't mind I'm going to post that link here also. I think since we are drifting into these deeper ...

Although it's been about a year since this particular topic in this thread has been discussed; I came across this really fascinating and helpful pdf of the 1st chapter of Jeffery Miller's book: "The Transcendent Function - Jung's Model Of Psychological Growth Through Dialogue With The Unconscious";...

James thanks for the pdf. A nice gem to have.. :) (Thank you Andeas; you are most kind.) If you are interested I've just finished reading another fascinating pdf I came across on Jung's: "Transcendent Function"; which I posted in Cindy's Jungian thread: http://www.jcf.org/new/forum/viewtopic.php?t=...

I came across this really great article this morning that to me is one of the best pieces I have yet encountered about what the Senex /Puer and Crone represent and thought it would fit very nicely into this thread. The "Puer/Senex-Crone" represent major Jungian figures within the Individuation proc...

I love these quotes Clemsy! "AND YET YOU ACT AS IF THERE IS SOME IDEAL ORDER IN THE WORLD, AS IF THERE IS SOME...SOME RIGHTNESS IN THE UNIVERSE BY WHICH IT MAY BE JUDGED." I may not have all this down by memory the way it should be written, but it reminds me of Jung in the Red Book talking to Phile...

Clemsy; I came across this quote of yours in the "Story" thread which may be another way of stating some of your earlier points below: Clemsy: But I think I know what Lao Tzu means when he says that the Tao that can be named is not the Eternal Tao . If transcendent indeed means beyond all categorie...

Dionysus, I would like to apologize if I seemed overly critical. I am going through some rough times and it has made me too intense. As to the question of God. I am fixated on Jung's functions so I see God like this. For the willful God is Authority. For Buddhists and Adviata Hindus God is consciou...

Dionysus: Hi Clemsy! I figured I'd respond to you and hope that James will forgive me, as I haven't read his post yet. Dionysus of course that is fine for it was I who accidentally interrupted you and Clemsy. (Sorry about that.) Please continue on and I'll check back in later. Cheers :) ___________...

I started to post this yesterday and took it down because I was uncertain if it was relevant. ( Now I'm not so sure.) I'm not as well versed in many of the nuances of Buddhism as some the rest of the folk on these forums; so what do you guys think? "God is an intelligible sphere whose center is ever...

Please, James. I respect your response to your friend's efforts in following her bliss. I have just recently teamed up with a woman who publishes an art-zine here (mostly fine arts - sculpture painting, various media). Our mutual interest lies in theatre and the exploration of the human condition. ...

James I was being a bit over dramatic. I really did miss this series of conversations, tho'. My journey as a theatre artist continues to surprise and engage. My exploration of the human condition continues unabated. Every day continues to be an exercise in wakefulness. See it. Embrace it. It is you...

Hi James, I was always here - just lonely. -- d. Well we can't have any of that! We're back now aren't we? I hope you'll forgive me for I find now that I'm getting older I'm not quite as top of things as I use to be and I miss stuff; so if I was somehow oblivious or inattentive please accept my apo...
