Psychology and Religion: West and East (The Collected Works of C. G. Jung, Volume 11)

Every psychic process is an image and an “imagining,” otherwise no consciousness could exist and the occurrence would lack phenomenality.

Imagination itself is a psychic process, for which reason it is completely irrelevant whether the enlightenment be called “real” or “imaginary.”

The person who has the enlightenment, or alleges that he has it, thinks at all events that he is enlightened.

What others think about it decides nothing whatever for him in regard to his experience.

Even if he were lying, his lie would still be a psychic fact. ~Carl Jung, CW 11, Para 889
