EMBODIMENT — Direct Knowing
Jung’s soul told him, “Your body remains with you, my beloved, your living body. The enlightened thought comes from the body” and the “way that leads to this knowledge is Hell” (Jung, 2009, p. 485). Deep dive into the embodiment of active imagination that is the way of the embodied heart and the teaching of the soul in The Red Book. Greek gnosis is knowledge, but it is a knowledge that is based on direct knowing.
“Beware of knowing what lies beyond yourself, or else your presumed knowledge will suffocate the life of those who know themselves. A knower may know himself” (p. 377)
"Moderns consider themselves wholly rational, unemotional, scientific, and atheistic. Where earlier humanity had realized its unconscious through religion and the unconscious as presientific delusions." C. G. Jung
