EXPLORING — A soul's calling and an honor
In undergoing a dissertation (a rare privilege), I give thanks for the opportunity to pursue my soul’s calling to remember how to learn through art and to share this memory with others. Hearing a call that “people had forgotten how to learn through art” from my soul, I experienced a series of synchronicities that lead me to TRB (the first of Jung’s book that I read) and to Pacifica Graduate Institute. I hope that this website will help others find their way, as I have, and I dedicate it to those who have helped me on my way.
As Jung’s carved statement over his Zurich mantle read: “Bidden or not Bidden God is Present” (a saying attributed to Desiderius Erasmus) to remind all who entered that ‘Awe of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom.’ (Psalms 111.10), I have also followed this adage.
"In the redemption of the individual, the whole past is redeemed, and that includes all the inferior things as well, the animals, and all the ancestral souls, everything that has not been completed; all creation will be redeemed."
C. G. Jung
“The psyche is a self-regulating system that maintains itself in equilibrium as the body does." C. G. Jung
Additionally, I have drawn upon J. R. R. Tolkein's: "Not all who wander are lost." and
"Therefore a wise man does not want to be a charioteer, for he knows that will and intention certainly attain goals but disturb the becoming of the future." C. G. Jung
In this process the soul is the charioteer and we learn to work with and trust her direction under the guidance of even brighter stars. We are not in this alone but work with and within the harmony of creation.
