on Self-realization

Just as a man must connect with his anima in order to know the nature of his Self, so too mankind must connect with the anima mundi to know the nature of immanence. Mankind’s one-sided pursuit of transcendence has dominated Western culture, throwing us all out of balance. It is time that we begin to reconnect to the anima mundi. Carl Jung says:

“The development of Western philosophy during the last two centuries has succeeded in isolating the mind in its own sphere and in severing it from its primordial oneness with the universe. Man himself has ceased to be the microcosm and eidolon of the cosmos, and his “anima” is no longer the consubstantial scintilla, spark of the Anima Mundi, World Soul” (Carl Jung, CW 11, para 759)
