Description: article by John Henshaw. Carl Jung found the stages of individuation of his patients elaborated through dream and symbol corresponding with those of old mystery cults. Although Jung never practised any form of organised meditation he saw the attention itself gathered into deeper levels of being by the motion of the unconscious self through Kundalini awakening, which can be the meditation in itself.
One enduring statement that C.G. Jung made late in life about not having to be a Jungian reveals much of his attitude towards the psyche. He saw his scientific role as a phenomenologist always open to the ambivalent and many aspected ambiguous intrusions of the unconscious into the ego field of conscious existence. He saw the ego loosely attached to a vast impersonal realm of the Self, which, in his later works he presented as the only objective and fundamental reality human beings could connect with. From this perspective the multi-layered, and to the conscious being, bewildering, complexity of the soul's functions was as fleeting as the Buddhist Maya. The west sees this Maya as the reality, and focusing our civilisation on the mastery of externals has produced its own catastrophic psychic disfunctioning as the values of internal reality have been neglected.
