"There is as little doubt of the existence of a supreme being as of matter. The world beyond is a reality, an experiential fact."
"As animals of the same kind show the same instinctual phenomena all over the world, man also shows the same archetypal forms no matter where he lives. As animals have no need to be taught their instinctive activities, so man also possesses his primordial psychic patterns and repeats them spontaneously, independently of any kind of teaching."
"Be aware of the law of synchronicity. As the old Chinese saying goes: 'The right man sitting in his house and thinking the right thought will be heard 100 miles away.'"

"Mandalas are also formed with the hands, danced, and represented in music (for instance Bach's 'Art of Fugue')….When a mandala is being formed, everything round and square known to man works on it too. But the impetus for its formation comes from the unconscious archetype."

"The archetype is a structural element of the psyche that we find everywhere and at all times; and it is that in which all individual psyches are identical with each other, and where they function as if they were the one undivided Psyche the ancients called 'anima mundi' [world soul]."
"The psychological 'merit' (or rather, significance) of Christ consists in the fact that, as the 'firstling', he is the prototype of the integral man. This image, as history testifies, is numinous and can therefore be answered only by another numinosity. It touches the imago Dei, the archetype of the self in us, and thereby awakens it. The self is then 'constellated' and by virtue of its numinosity compels man toward wholeness, i.e., towards the integration of the unconscious or the subordination of the ego to a holistic 'will', which is rightly conceived to be 'God's will."
"That which is eternally present appears in the temporal order as a succession."
"The paths leading to a common truth are many. Therefore each of us has first to stand by his own truth, which is then gradually reduced to a common truth by mutual discussion.

"I know that the psyche is capable of functioning unhampered by the categories of time and space. Ergo, it is in itself an equally transcendental being and therefore relatively non-spatial and 'eternal.'"
"God is the One, the All."
"The archetypes are in us, and eternal." Charles Lamb, 'The Essays of Elia (1821)
"Why do we ask about God at all? God effervesces in you and sets you to the most wondrous speculations."

"Becoming conscious reconciles the opposites."
"Everything living dreams of individuation, for everything strives towards its own wholeness."
