Carl Jung’s Letter to “N” on the Human Psyche and the Great Mother:

Dear N.,

I was very pleased to hear that you now have house and land of your own.

This is important for the chthonic powers.

I hope you will find time to commit your plant counterparts to the earth and tend their growth, tor the earth always wants children–houses, trees, flower–to grow out of her and celebrate the marriage of the human psyche with the Great Mother, the best counter-magic against rootless extraversion!

With best regards to you and your dear husband,

Always your faithful C.G. Jung [Letter dated August 10, 1956]
