Dr. Jung spoke of the inferior function being united to the collective: it is just a bit of nature and, as such, must first be accepted and adapted to …. The superior function is in your hands, and you can put it to your uses.
The inferior is your master, and you must adapt yourself to it.
Yet it is nature; there is life there.
The thing that wants to be born must first be found.
The form it is to grow into shall later be the object of search, and the search may be a long one …. ~Esther Harding, Conversations with Jung, Page 8
