GIVING BIRTH — Birthing a New Old
Jung (2009): “To give birth to the ancient in a new time is creation. This is the creation of the new, and that redeems me. Salvation is the resolution of the task. The task is to give birth to the old in a new time. The soul of humanity is like the great wheel of the zodiac that rolls along the way. Everything that comes up in a constant movement from below to the heights was already there” (p. 394). Creation is the act of creating the alchemical Great Work of Art and a work of art. It is both a noun and a verb, a product and a process. Creation is creative—another of the four aspects that Jung said was edited out of the bible by the Church.
“Only gradually did I discover what the mandala really is, 'Formation, Transformation, Eternal Mind's eternal recreation.'" C. G. Jung
