Jung the famous Swizz psychiatrist introduced what is known as the collective unconscious. For Jung, it was repository of psychic symbolism common to all of humanity. Jung has used the symbolism of the Mandala as an example. But Mandala belongs to Pagan religions and could be a satanic talisman. What I would like to say is God—Jehovah—Jesus is the reservoir of the collective unconscious and he has skillfully created Adam in his own likeness. The collective unconscious is the consciousness which we share with God.
I was an avid follower of the theories of Carl Gustav Jung the Swizz psychiatrist. Notable are his contributions especially the theory of the Collective Unconscious, a world that is shared by all humanity. He is also noted for the theory of archetypes and he has created (drawn) the wise seer Philemon.
While I was reading his Memories Dreams and Reflections, a strange thing happened. The lit candle fell by its own accord on to the book decimating a large portion of it. I was reading about the collective unconscious.
I wonder why this memory which happened years back is now coming to prominence in my mind. Yes, Jung can be part of my collective unconscious and I welcome him to be a part of me.
Philosophical etymology refers to the ability to transform words into new meanings and also the process of coining neologisms. For example: the existential philosophers proclaimed the ontology in three states: Catharsis, Angst and Ecstasy. I have coined a PresenceUation: the joy, peace and love you find Christ: something which the world can’t give. Philosophical etymology gives way to writing of texts in new philosophical jargon
Two nights back I had one of the strangest dreams ever manifested. Why strange? I could find no satisfactory explanation in the dictionary of dream symbols. Let me first of all narrate this bizarre and zany dream having an occult and psychic significance. I dreamed of my ex-college-lover Sheeba, now deceased. She came to me and said she wanted to get pregnant and we started discussing about making love. Then all of a sudden she turned violent into a fearsome and gruesome Goddess Kali who holds severed heads in her multiple hands.
Her mother, an old hag who chews betel leaves with tobacco spat it on my face. The most frightening situation was I could not open my mouth. I was literally choking. Dream symbolism speaks of choking where it says you cannot swallow something in your real life but not what I experienced in real. I made a choking sound and woke my wife who put on the light and thought that I was having a stroke. I lasted for fifteen minutes before normal consciousness came back to me. What does this dream mean Biblically? I am no die hard Christian nor lukewarm. It says in Ephesians 6:12 “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” Was God revealing to me that there exists an occult world of spirits and demons? Was he telling me that I should rekindle my spiritual consciousness and detour from sin? I have no answers only questions.
