Jung: Myss on Jung's Imagination and Archetypes
Carl Jung adored the realm of the imagination. He may well be the master explorer of our age of this domain.
For him, the imagination contained the passageways to the psyche and the inner voices of our archetypes. Active imagination was an essential tool that he introduced, establishing a form of communication between the conscious and unconscious self.
Right there we have something to imagine as impossible: opening a portal of communication between your conscious and unconscious self. That may be getting ahead of yourself a bit, but such a mega-thought does qualify for imagining the impossible, if you have never, in fact, considered undertaking such an endeavor. – Myss, April 2010 Salon
