I had the good fortune of a brief, private audience with Laurens Van der Post back in the 1970s. I asked him whether Jung really meant that what an individual resolved within themselves could indeed radically change the world. He replied, “that was Jung’s absolute conviction.”
In this time, where so much energy is drawn outwardly to the decisions of rulers overpowering our destiny, I pass on links to Laurens Van der Post’s three-part series on Jung’s contribution to our time, which captures the inner path to change. I am indebted to a young man for his research in finding the links to these valuable films which have been lost to me for decades.
Here are the links, the films are approximately 30 minutes each:
#1 In Search of the Soul
#2 67,000 Dreams
#3 The Mystery That Heals
March on consciousness!
Leonard Cohen, the innerly soulful poet and musician, gently closed the door of an era, dying this past Monday night, election eve. He left us with a touch of the eternal in his final album, You Want it Darker, which we highly recommend for deep spiritual renewal and communion. Hallelujah, Leonard! Hello Marianne!
As we begin this new era of ego and the dark side we recommend as well the movie, Dr. Strange, which distills the tools of The Matrix, Indiana Jones, Star Wars, and the spiritual wisdom of the Aquarian Age, a fitting reminder of our own potential and mortality as we embark upon the coming challenges before us in this world.
The journey continues in all worlds. May we find deep renewal and refueling as we prepare for the next leg of the journey.
Peace, love, and wisdom,
Chuck & Jan
