PERCEPTION; Perceptual v Conception
Aristotle said “the soul never thinks without a picture” and this section introduces us to Jung’s approach to perceiving through the activation of the imagination or what called visioning, a picture method, and trancing before arriving at active imagination. A n embodied perception, this is tacit knowledge or nonverbal creativity (other than metaphor) in which the body and a body of art serve as the organ of perception. Including all of the senses, perception in this multifaceted or synthetic sense is like entering a picture like an imaginary landscape—becoming one of the actors, as Jung suggested.
“Imagination is the eye of the soul”
“It all depends on how we look at things, and not how they are themselves." C. G. Jung
"I did all in my power to convey to my intimates a new way of seeing things." C. G. Jung
"Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside dreams; who looks inside awakes." C JUNG
