Jung on Dream Journals
The New York Time’s recently featured an article on Jung’s intriguing and much anticipated Red Book.
The Holy Grail of the Unconscious
A quote from Jung on journaling the inner workings of the mind and (possibly) dreams stuck out to me:
“I should advise you to put it all down as beautifully as you can — in some beautifully bound book,” Jung instructed. “It will seem as if you were making the visions banal — but then you need to do that — then you are freed from the power of them. . . . Then when these things are in some precious book you can go to the book & turn over the pages & for you it will be your church — your cathedral — the silent places of your spirit where you will find renewal. If anyone tells you that it is morbid or neurotic and you listen to them — then you will lose your soul — for in that book is your soul.”
