on Self-realization

Psychology of the Self: realizing the Self through art, archetype, meditation, contemplation

Notes on Jung: the goal of individuation is the synthesis of the self

“I have called this wholeness that transcends consciousness the ‘self.’ The goal of the individuation process is the synthesis of the self. …the symbols of wholeness frequently occur at the beginning of the individuation process.” Carl Jung (CW 9i, para. 278)

“The aim of individuation is nothing less than to divest the self of the false wrappings of the persona on the one hand, and of the suggestive power of primordial images on the other.” (CW 7, par. 269. ]
