Example text

This, in turn, helps to clarify our relations with the world around us. Too oftenparticularly in our most emotionally intense momentswe interact more with our projections (and, thus, with ourselves) than with that which is actually there. When the world fails to confirm our presumptions, we often believe that it is crazy. This further erodes our relationships, leading to a downward spiral whose only remedy is a healthy dose of ego-effacing consciousness. Synchronic Individuation Consciousness and the unconscious balance each other.

But the question of how they preserve their character during their interactions is not easily answered. At the point where they intersect, all is jumbled up in turbulence. " How is it that a pattern can be preserved in the midst of chaos? How can one ripple look the same after interacting in an unpredictable manner with another? What can the word "chaos" possibly mean if order can emerge from it? For those familiar with analytical psychology, the emergence of patterns from disorder is hardly surprising.

For, according to Jung, we are more than we think we are. In fact, that which we normally define as ourselvesthat to which we refer when we use the words ''I" and "me"is a relatively small part of the total psyche. The rest is "unconscious," Page 35 meaning that it organizes and expresses itself in ways that are generally foreign to "me," the ego. Consequently, while the almost limitless potential for growth that each of us has is located within ourselves, it remains unconscious until life's events stir it toward consciousness.
