The Willful Virgin, p. It was not given away or bartered or owned by their partners, it was wholly and solely within their dominion.
In the case of goldstar, they still enjoy sexuality. All of this connects to what Beebe points out on p. This really explains everything. Though a closer analogy for them might be the opposite; of a pot that allows water to flow through its solid sides. It is usually associated with sex drive, but that is really just one part of it. For them not to become tarnished or worn would run counter to nature. So on p. In utter frustration, I became a conservative Christian at 20, which greatly restricted what I could do with the opposite sex, and even who I could pursue, since we were not supposed to date unbelievers.
It will create expectations they cannot live up to, and thus disillusionments. It stems from a desire for life i. Where Christians often tell you to wait for some other kind of world after this one, where everything will be made right, but then on the other hand, where everything will be different like no sex, for one! The wholeness Jung sought initially through the mother archetype, and later through the anima, denies the split within his own masculine nature, a split that I think he was finally too proud to recognize.
Today we are able to see the effects of this split as a partial failure of integrity, obvious in his personal and political dealings with other men as well as in what he asked women to carry for him. But if we are to realize an ideal of integrity that is appropriate to a post-patriarchal age, the masculine and feminine principles must each be allowed to become less monolithic by developing the dialogue of solar and lunar conscience within each principle. The gender principles need to find the opposites within themselves before they turn to meet each other. Again, Jung was projecting patriarchical assumptions onto women, but this basically followed society of the time anyway.

Not because of any homosexual molestation, but more indirectly, through life circumstances, especially with a condition such as AS, with all the problems it causes with people.

Just trying to gain some sense of solar power in the way most possible; from behind a computer screen, like in arguing Christian doctrine and politics online for years; but it just leads to burnout.
These connect to eros and logos or care and justice. What was in those ships; all three, on Christmas Day in the morning? Where did they get that from? More on this below! I heard all the songs as a child, but never took any notice of that word. I heard of the state Virginia, of course, and then, the Virgin Islands.
The Bitch, the Crone, and the Harlot
Never thought of what the names meant. So by jr. So the first time I was ever asked if I was one, right there in jr. Anyway, all of this continues to show a deep archetypal significance of this sexual state. Of course, some religious assumptions projected the fear of sex as evil into the Christmas story.
But the true reason of not having a human father, aside from just being a miracle, also had to do with the royal lineage. But once man took of the knowledge of good and evil, he began to take on a sense of shame, leading to negative judgments of sex. This is when various archetypes constellated. The universal archetypes would reflect this. So the Virgin Mother began to enter ancient religion, likely beginning with Nimrod and the legends formed around him. This would be such a supernatural miracle of unlikeliness.
To be a mother is to promote life into the next generation. However, circumcision of most men in the west removed this flesh anyway rendering it moot. But if done right, neither should really break. It ideally was not supposed to come across like this. Many people trace this from Babylon, Egypt and other ancient religions, to Christ, and believe this proves He or the doctrine built around him was a fabrication from those earlier sources. But all this means is that God chose this primeval archetype as His means of fulfilling the redemption mankind was seeking through them.
Her virginity would be perpetuated to her whole lifetime even though there is strong scriptural evidence she had other children by Joseph. Many of them bypass Church history altogether, and surmise that rather than breaking off of the larger churches, their forebears existed alongside them though often forced underground , as various small persecuted groups throughout the centuries. So they hold that they never lost the purity of the original doctrines or polity, and will often be the ones insisting they hold the whole truth and every other group is wrong.
They also have been strongest in upholding literal virginity for unmarried non-widows, as the supreme virtue; one that most of their judgments of modern culture were based on. At least one guy actually attributed to this right after it occurred! Hence the archetype is represented in this way, at least. In ancient Judaism, it was the Temple system. The virtuous woman being the faithful, and the non-virtuous one being one who has sold herself out to impure religion or political leadership. So where I used to be more critical of devotion to Mary, I see where it has some archetypal significance, as the need to concretize a deep longing in the collective psyche.
But it does show something else to be aware of. You end up killing people for being sinners; but then you are just as much a sinner. I at this point should mention the confusion I have seen, regarding what sexual consummation really is. At that point, not knowing anything about sex in practice but only seeing textbook illustrations of the female anatomy, and very basic descriptions of intercourse , I wondered how it would be so difficult.
So then, I find out about another condition, vulvodynia or vestibulodynia, where the sides of the vulva outside the opening of the vaginal opening can be tight as well, as they are pushed together by the superficial pelvic floor muscles the same ones we use to hold in going to the bathroom , which will be tense especially when nervous, and the area can be irritated or inflamed from fabrics, infections, thinning caused by birth control pills, or even too many nerves Congenital Neuroproliferate Vestibulodynia.
So now, you have to wonder about all those centuries when blood on the sheets was the sign that the woman was virtuous, thinking it was from a hymen being present and torn, and could even lead to punishment by death if believed to be absent. This apparently is not always as easy as you would think. So you might not even reach the hymen. And not being able to see down there while attempting entry , neither partner may know what exactly is going on. In fact, when the doctor was able to get the vestibule open and test the hymen, there was actually no pain there!
It was all in the area before you even got to it! Rather, the anima is essentially the inner counterpart of the persona. Nature has no goals. Nature just is. The effect on the ego… is extremely difficult to eliminate. In the first place, it has extraordinary force and immediately endows the ego personality with an unshakable feeling of rightness and righteousness; and because in the second place, the reason for the effect is projected, that is, it appears to originate in objects and objective situations….
The archetype…fascinates and captures consciousness in an hypnotic way. Not infrequently this gives the ego an indistinct feeling of moral defeat, leading it to behave in an even more defensive, defiant and self-righteous manner. This inferiority feeling then closes the vicious circle and excludes all possibility of the reciprocal approbation essential for a relationship. Spring, , p. Depersonalizing the anima means what it says: seeing through the personal aspects of all personifications. It refers to that recognition that all the personal me-ness and self-important subjectivity derive from an archetype that is quite impersonal Anima, pp.
The ego feels threatened with annihilation. Including by the rest of the Psyche or larger Self, including the anima. I imagine the annihilation feared is likely from assimilation. For me, this is especially pronounced for AS, where the sensory stimulations of emotions are poorly regulated, and thus feel worse, like catastrophic almost. Especially when I learned that not caring about others feelings was sorely wrong and to be chastised. And then the social problems basically derailed all prospects with the opposite sex.
This drives the passion of fighting for what ego believes in. Even all my holiday nostalgia stems from being so young at events like the Thanksgiving Day parade or Rockefeller Center and feeling so small and insignificant amongst all the people, and perhaps even the lack of autonomy of being with my mother. The whole big world that looked so threatening, yet had a lot of pretty or fun looking distractions which basically require power and status to gain the most out of. It would work this way for all men.
They are fighting for their otherwise repressed i. For years, I was deeply resentful toward women, particularly the typical witty, spunky black woman role, because of feeling rejected by them as a teen, and then my mother even confirming this. So the thing with women is part of a larger attempt of ego to conquer the world. This just gets mixed up with the natural sex drive. Once achieved, the relationship can be the holding environment for the discovery of an even more radical integrity, which feels like the grace of God. In the tale, this radical integrity is mediated by the healing ointment.
It is clear that the relationship the surgeons primarily lack is to themselves. To recap the story, the surgeons arrive at the inn, and each one, respectively, cuts off a hand, his heart, and an eye, which they will then graft back onto their bodies with a healing ointment. However, the organs are to be kept in a larder until the morning. But the servant girl, being befuddled, from being in love with a soldier who is visiting, left a door open, and a cat came and stole the organs.
The next day, it fools the surgeons who graft these things on with the ointment, until they notice they are taking the chracteristics of the beings whom these organs come from, whether stealing, running to garbage like a pig, or being blind during the day, but seeing mice in total darkness at night. In the end, they demand money from the innkeeper. In the Ma-wang-tui manuscripts of the Tao Te Ching, the graph for te was composed of an eye and a heart. The ointment is the Tao.
The anima is really supposed to connect to the Self rather than the Shadow, and I guess it would do that if it faithfully guarded the organs representing integrity. Then integrity is compromised, consciousness is devoured, and military ruthlessness has its say in shaping the new attitudes that appear. Compromises are enemies of integrity, even though at first they seem quite naturally to lock into place.
These are frequent moods of postwar disillusionment, but they follow any effort at integrity that has been poorly contained. Our army surgeons are forced to recognize parts of the thief, the pig, and the cat in themselves, and this difficult confrontation leads to a more conscious relationship to envy, shame, and anxiety. Nevertheless, the would-be healers of integrity are left with a longing for wholeness. But even that is an improvement. Gone is the inflated reliance upon the power of Tao eventually to set things right. Instead, the chastened recognition of compromised integrity has produced a hunger for genuine healing.
So I can see the innkeeper which I assume to be the ego itself replacing the surgeons, or that the surgeons represent our own faculties, in which we try to solve problems. So we have the same problem, of losing those organs of te through an immature anima. I can see I certanly deal with envy, shame and anxiety. From there, it should also take care of the last thing, anxiety, covering the commonly cited v, which was regarding our standing with God, but similarly assumed to be any anxiety about life. Still, envy and anxiety about life are problems that should be overcome.
So the anima then is apparently what allows these problems to surface in life. I can see in my own life, that my reaction to things is what triggers all three conditions. It all boils down to fear of consequences. I admit, this is what has fired up my reaction to political conservativism which often appeals to the laws of nature as to why power should be imbalanced as it is, with the sufferers as to blame for their own plight.
This creates a genuine humility which enables the ego to want to learn from the Self rather than assume it the ego has all the answers.
THE SYNOPSIS OF THE THIRD PARTITION.
Anima-consciousness favors a protective mimicry, an attachment to something or someone else to which it is echo. Here we see the wood nymphs that belong to trees, the souls which hover over waters, speak from dells and caves, or sing from the sea—rocks and whirlpools—and, most vividly, the succubus…. Anima is the reflective partner, she it is who provides the moment of reflection in the midst of what is naturally given. Without these soul-stirring emotions, there would be no significance in the natural places and human affairs to which she is attached. In other words, consciousness of this archetypal structure is never far from unconsciousness.
Its primary attachment is to the state of nature, to all things that simply are—life, fate, death—and which can only be reflected but never separated from their impenetrable opacity. Anima stays close to this field of the natural unconscious mind. Hillman, Anima, pp 23, These questions seem to issue from an other-personified as an anima…figure-who says, in effect: You must deal with me, respond to me, even if it is to reject me, but here I am and you cannot escape.
According to Emma Jung: The anima makes certain demands upon a man. She is a psychic factor that insists on being considered, not neglected as is the general tendency, since a man naturally likes to identify himself with his masculinity…. What matters to a woman is the personal relation, and this is true also of the anima. Her tendency is to entangle a man in such relationships, but she can also serve him well in giving them shape—that is she can do so after the feminine element has been incorporated into consciousness.
As long as this element works autonomously, it disturbs relations or makes them impossible. Two Essays, p. Where she acts on men as their internal other, the anima can mediate the discovery. Our achievement of any new awareness imposes on us, Jung would assert, a moral obligation to use what we now know—which, In the present case, means to continue relating to the anima. A first step might be to pay attention to our projections. The techniques Schellenbaum recommends are familiar staples of classical Jungian therapy—active imagination, dreamwork, drawing, painting, modeling—aimed at conducting a dialogue with the anima, paying special attention to the feeling-tone of the encounter: An aggressive affect…will neither be devalued nor denied.
Instead, judgment-free questions will be put: What do you want to say to me? What neglected aspect of my self seeks expression in you? Is there some necessary delimitation that you want to force from me? Are you signaling some life task that needs tackling? Or, what in my life would you like to destroy? A particular attitude or relationship, or a particular behavior of mine? Such a dialogue with the anima should, according to Jung, last as long as required for a subjective feeling of peace and satisfaction to set in…. The basic attitude of the mature anima, active receptivity, stimulates the pouring forth of images.
Gender and Soul, p. Hillman depicts ego-relativization process as uncovering layers of images for which heroic ego is not responsible. Person differentiates between ego and what has been projected onto it. Yet these false possessions do not constitute what is essential and enduring but rather are limited—and thus limiting. Symptoms of inflation include spells of anger force or coersion , power motivation, intellectual rigidity private truth or opinion equated with universal truth , and lust pure pleasure.
Just not by any of us, because we cannot possibly know all the factors that will lead to an event like an accident, including the forces creating the trajectories involved. Like what makes the person swerve one lane over instead of just a foot, and how much a substance or fatigue may have affected his reaction time, and then what made you be in his path at that moment. Life, fate and death are what Job was grappling with. The narrative does portray simply God and Satan as being behind it, but this is not usually revealed, and when we try to speculate on it, we always get it wrong.
Though what strikes me is that if knowing why regarding fate is beyond the reality limit, the actual temporal suffering of the stuff that makes us question in the first place i. Hence, the popularity of the above mentioned teachings. So it seems my rejecting of my portion in nature was to compensate for this. This is where I start questioning some of this. Subjectively, I can conjure up any idea. It seems letting go of ego just leaves us in a world where other inflated egos who seem to be favored by the circumstances, allowing them to credit themselves so much then dominate, affecting us.
Perhaps this is why others who embark on these kinds of paths leave and become monks. Who can stay in this world that provokes ego, and yet the key to wholeness and health is relativizing it? Trying to understand what the collective unconscious that ego is supposed to be relativized in favor of really is. All of these issues covering the balance of power in life. Overall, it still seems the universal message is a favoring of power.
F Practical: living with the losses S. Much of self-help is basically about coming to terms with the first three, assuming that will make you cope with the last one which is really the starting point, of course. I guess, for me, my difficulty with that is a combination of AS, plus S Sensing function simply being tertiary; and thus connected with the complexes ego states of the Puer which feels vulnerable and helpless sometimes , and the Trickster by which I feel totally bound.
And he later goes into a bit of nature as well. But it really shows the age of Law, and in which in reality, all men are wicked and would perish. And the friends did start off with [unspoken] care, but it quickly turned into justice. Yet, something still seemed to be missing from the equation. The common denominator of all of it, is the symmetry of give and take ; basically, a trade. The world often goes for the consensus, and thus seeming to not make sense. And this ultimately was the message of God to Job, who obviously came to despair of the physical world and his deflated place in it.
We then projected that lack of integrity onto the physical creation.
