Psyche's Knife


Psyche's Knife: Archetypal Explorations of Love and Power


This excerpt is incredibly relevant to my dream


*********
"Not for a moment dare we succumb to an illusion that an archetype can be finally explained and disposed of.  The most we can do is dream the myth onward and give it modern dress." CGJung, CW16, 1951, par 271

aside: 

I've had one of those rather rare long and successful marriages. But I realize now so strongly that death is a journey you make alone. 

We dream the myth onward. May memory fill the cup when we arrive.

A cultural era is not defined by the content of the ideas it conveys but by its interpretive filter...the hidden threads that link ideas to the invisible will of the time.~Ioan Couliano.
