Example text

Let < previous page page_28 If you like this book, buy it! next page > < previous page page_29 next page > Page 29 us say that there are two men, and one dreams of a ball of fire which gives him comfort and enlightenment, and the other dreams of a marvellous, wise old man appearing to him, and both are equally overwhelmed. Superficially, you could say that both images symbolise the Self, that is, the totality, the centre, a form of manifestation of the image of God. What is the difference when one man experiences light, or the fire ball, while to the other the superhuman wise man appears?

Nature has a numinous and divine aspect as experienced by the human being, which explains why the human image of God has both aspects. In most religions there are personifications of God in both forms. In the history of the development of the European mind, a strange kind of enantiodromia and opposition has developed since Grecian times. In the Homeric religion the personified aspect was exaggerated. In the natural philosophy of pre-Socratic philosophers the nature aspect was exaggerated. While in Stoicism more emphasis was laid on the nature aspect, in Christianity there was at first a return to a more personified aspect.

A quality in another person can only be recognized if one has the same quality and knows what it feels like to lie, and therefore one recognizes the same thing in the other person. Since the other person really is a liar, you have made a true statement, and why should you call that a projection which should be taken back? It makes a basis for relationship, for you think to yourself: If X is a liar, whatever he tells me I must not believe entirely, I must question it. That is very reasonable and well adapted and right.
