[Late in his life Dr. Jung stopped dreaming.]

Suzanne Percheron: I suppose that you dream?

Dr. Jung: No, I almost don’t dream anymore. (!!!)

I used to dream when I began to discover my unconscious.

One dreams when the unconscious has something to say, but my consciousness is always so receptive now that the door is open.

I am ready to accept. With me the unconscious can flow into consciousness.

I no longer have prejudice, or fear, or resistance. The dream is a way in which the unconscious makes itself known to consciousness.

Many people have no memory of their dreams because the unconscious knows that it will not be heard, so what’s the use; then they don’t remember.
