“Did you not see that when your creative force turned to the world, how the dead things moved under it and through it, how they grew and prospered, and how your thoughts flowed in rich rivers? If your creative force now turns to the place of the soul, you will see how your soul becomes green and how its field bears wonderful fruit.” ~ Carl Jung. The Red Book. Page 236.
What a beautiful piece, Jean. It rings true to me. I intend to republish it shortly. I would like to share with you my personal experience. During the decade of the 1990s something in me definitely wanted to have voice. I expressed it in many ways, but starting in 1995 I began painting. I wasn’t a particularly successful artist, although some of my pieces are prized by friends and family. The important point is that I noticed along the way that whenever I was actively painting, the rest of my life began to simply work better. If I stopped painting, my life didn’t work as well. Based on that, I believe you can do practically anything, and you will find that the unconscious will start to help your life change for the better.
