Jung wrote: “The question remains: How am I to live with this shadow? What attitude is required if I am to be able to live in spite of evil? In order to find valid answers to these questions a complete spiritual renewal is needed. And this cannot be given gratis each man must strive to achieve it for himselves. Neither can old formulas which once had a value be brought into force again. The eternal truths cannot be transmitted mechanically; in every epoch they must be born anew from the human psyche” (1970, CW 10: 443).
Australia is burning, droughts are devastating South Africa and there is a possible global threat of World War III. World leaders are behaving in an appalling manner, while the man in the street fights for survival and suffers innumerable injustices. Given the astronomical event of a conjunction of Pluto (Planet of Destruction/Death) and Saturn (Known as The Teacher) a massive reset or karmic clearing is on the cards. At the same time an important ceremony took place at Uluru, the Aboriginal sacred site in Australia, aimed at reconnecting mankind with its true purpose as predicted by Dream Time Mythology.
Jung wrote “Neither should he (humans) persist in his unconsciousness, nor remain identical with the unconscious elements of his being, thus evading his destiny, which is to create more and more consciousness. As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being” (1961, MDR, p. 326)
