C.G. Jung, God, Man

imagesI must admit it warms my heart to know that “the powers that be” are so well educated in Jung, and his contemporaries, and have been able to maintain such effective farming techniques (human farming techniques) that continue to provide the planet with such kindness, and the spirit of brotherhood amongst such a diverse population on this planet, and yet, ask nothing in return, but to be pleased…NOT !!!

A word from Jung…“A group experience takes place on a lower level of consciousness than the experience of an individual. This is due to the fact that, when many people gather together to share one common emotion, the total psyche emerging from the group is below the level of the individual psyche. If it is a very large group, the collective psyche will be more like the psyche of an animal, which is the reason why the ethical attitude of large organizations is always doubtful. The psychology of a large crowd inevitably sinks to the level of mob psychology. If, therefore, I have a so-called collective experience as a member of a group, it takes place on a lower level of consciousness than if I had the experience by myself alone.” C.G. Jung, The Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious…

The very nature of man in my view ( the overall sense, not individuals, that would be very unfair, and paint man with too broad a stroke) is to exploit anything and everything in sight to further his, or hers own illusion of ownership and control, and to fulfill a false sense of elevation and satisfaction within these individuals, or groups perceptions, with what they feel is needed to be in control of their destiny, and also in the cases of global control, everyone’s destiny, if at all possible. Hence, the Herd is rounded up and controlled by any means possible, politics, media, religion, race, pharmaceuticals,and so on, and conditioned by means of all the things listed above, then, a cultural landscape is created, by the lesser of mans attributes, greed, pride, and so on, instead of the greater, love, and God…

So, for me, after many years of seeing this redundant apparatus at work in all areas of social, economic, and cultural life starring me right in the face, I had to look outside the box for some sense of authenticity in terms of God, because the herd seems to have been so mislead by these man made paradigms that even God has been taken hostage to this madness …

But there have men like Augustine, St Isaac, Kierkegaard, Bonhoeffer, Lewis, Gandhi, Lao Tzu and many others who offered some assistance in deconstructing the man made illusions, and allowed me to reassess for myself, where God is in all this, and come to some conclusion….Conclusions being “God is” ! and man is attempting to find his way. Subjectivity then begins to take its place. There, for me, and even within all that, thats just another herd…lol… this would be another topic…
