"'Black' refers not to anyone's color (for which none is responsible), but 'Black' defines one's attitude towards the homeland of his ancestors which from times immemorial was called 'The Land of the Blacks'."
"Jung found that he could help harmonize the psyches of his patients by having them draw mandalas. Each of us has disparate interests, disparate ideas, conflicting purposes and conflicting ideals. And if you can put one of your purposes, let’s say in the north, and the opposite purpose in the south, and then others in the east and west, you sort of pull yourself together, and your mind will in its dreams begin to suggest ways to harmonize the different thrusts of your life.
And so that is the way these things function: the religious symbols are harmonizing powers. That’s the whole sense of mythology, to help you to harmonize your individual life with the general life, the life of the society and of the universe."
