“The Self signifies the unification of consciousness and unconsciousness in a person and representing the psyche as a whole.
It is realized as the product of individuation, which in his view is the process of integrating various aspects of one's personality.
The Self is an encompassing whole which acts as a container.
The Self...embraces ego-consciousness, shadow, anima, and collective unconscious in indeterminable extension. As a totality, the self is a *coincidentia oppositorum; it is, therefore, bright and dark and yet neither.”
*coincidentia oppositorum is a Latin phrase meaning coincidence/unity of opposites.
Past, present and future – all the roads lead to Rome i.e The Self, the core of being.
Being content with unconsciousness, the sum of NOW, we choose to stay in our comfort zone/prejudices/familiarity.
But unyielding ‘life’, the harshest teacher, pushes us back to the front...every time.
The deception of separateness needs to be broken…the resistance to what IS has to be given up.
The seen and the unseen, the Shadow, the Anima/Animus, the Ego & Persona have to be honoured and unified.
The consciousness initiates the process of individuation (self-realization) despite all the safety measures to protect the “I (ego)”.
Every breadth drawn with presence and awareness takes us one step closer towards self-realization.
The delusion of ‘I’ shatters and the Self shines through with all its magnificence.
There are no barricades...only unconditional love of consciousness.
