Dreams, myths and works of art can convey this sense of meaning as well. Such a great book, though not an easy read at all!


I made the mistake of selecting a high level, almost graduate-level book to read in a subject I know almost nothing about. Edward Edinger traces the stages in this process and relates them to the search for meaning through encounters with symbolism in religion, myth, dreams, and art. These observations indicate that the Self stands behind the ego and can act as a guarantor of its integrity.

To summarise the key learning areas in the book, the goal of the psyche is individuation and wholeness, and encountering the Self is a core developmental aim of the psyche. Many current novels and plays clepict lost, meaningless lives.

If they can eat the fruit of the tree of life after the faIl, they have achieved both conscious- ness and immortality. Danger will be whenever an act is performed for the immediate gratification of the ego or any conscious part of the personality rather than with reference to the archetypal roots of that act-that is, without relating that act to its archetypal origin and the aspect of ritual that was involved in the first root act.
