Carl Jung: "The world hangs on a thin thread...."
Video of Carl Jung's famous statement, "The world hangs on a thin thread, and that is the psyche of man...." (Click "SHOW MORE" for a complete transcript of the video.) Jung: The world hangs on a thin thread, and that is the psyche of man. Nowadays we are not threatened by elementary catastrophes. There is no such thing [in nature] as an H-bomb; that is all man's doing. WE are the great danger. The psyche is the great danger. What if something goes wrong with the psyche? You see, and so it is demonstrated to us in our days what the power of the psyche is of man, how important it is to know something about it. But we know nothing about it. Nobody would give credit to the idea that the psychical processes of the ordinary man have any importance whatever. One thinks, "Oh, he has just what he has in his head. He is all from his surroundings, he is taught such and such a thing, believes such and such a thing, and particularly if he is well housed and well fed, then he has no ideas at all." And that's the great mistake because he is just that as which he is born, and he is not born as "tabula rasa," but as a reality. Interviewer: Jung had a vision at the end of his life of a catastrophe. It was a world catastrophe. Marie-Louise von Franz: I don't want to speak much about it. One of his daughters took notes and after his death gave it to me, and there is a drawing with a line going up and down, and underneath is "the last 50 years of humanity." And some remarks about a final catastrophe being ahead. But I have only those notes. Interviewer: What is your own feeling about it, the world situation? von Franz: Well, one's whole feeling revolts aginst this idea but since I have those notes in a drawer, I don't allow myself to be too optimistic. I think, well, we have always had wars and enormous catastrophies, and I have no more personal fear much about that. I mean at my age, if you have anyhow soon to go— so or so egocentrically spoken. But the beauty of all the life— to think that the billions and billions and billions of years of evolution to build up the plants and the animals and the whole beauty of nature— and that man would go out of sheer shadow foolishness and destroy it all. I mean that all life might go from the the planet. And we don't know— on Mars and Venus there is no life; we don't know if there is any life experiment elsewhere in the galaxies. And we go and destroy this. I think it is so abominable. I try to pray that it may not happen— that a miracle happens. Interviewer: Do you find that young people that you see now are aware of that? That it's in their consciousness? von Franz: Yes it's partly in their unconscious and partly in their consciousness, and I think in a very dangerous way, namely, in a way of giving up and running away into a fantasy world. You know, when you study science fiction, you see there's always the fantasy of escaping to some other planet and begin anew again, which means give up the battle on this earth, consider it hopeless and give up. I think one shouldn't give up, because if you think of [Jung's book] Answer to Job, if man would wrestle with God, if man would tell God that he shouldn't do it, if we would reflect more. That why reflection comes in. Jung never thought that we might do better than just possibly sneak round the corner with not too big a catastrophe. When I saw him last, he had also a vision while I was with him, but there he said, "I see enormous stretches devastated, enormous stretches of the earth. But, thank God it's not the whole planet." I think that if not more people try to reflect and take back their projections and take the opposites within themselves, there will be a total destruction.

An eye-opening and inspiring speech from ethnobotanist and mystic, Terence McKenna on the mysteries of our universe. Will Humanity Ever Understand? “Ego is a structure that is erected by a neurotic individual who is a member of a neurotic culture against the facts of the matter. And culture, which we put on like an overcoat, is the collectivized consensus about what sort of neurotic behaviors are acceptable.” - Terence McKenna (1946 - 2000) Speaker: Terence McKenna Learn more: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terence_McKenna https://mckenna.academy http://www.levity.com/eschaton/ Speech: Various Produced and Edited by T&H Inspiration ►Follow T&H: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/THinspirationMotivation/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/tradgedyandhope
How And When Does The Soul Enter The Human Body & Where Does It Reside| Daaji | Heartfulness
How does the life-force enter a human being? In the past, the insights of mystics and sages have often been questioned, only to be later recognised as being closer to the truth. Most spiritual traditions speak of an entity within us which is called the soul or life-force. If we assume it exists, how does this life-force manifest in the mind, body and soul? Where is the life- force during embryo formation? Where, in the body, does it reside? These are some of the questions related to spiritual growth, spiritual cleansing, spiritual parenting with a soul purpose, spiritual journey, spiritual direction and spiritual goals we put to the author and heartfulness guide, Daaji.
