Jung Currents Mandala

The eye is the prototype of the mandala, as is evident from Böhme, who calls his mandala “The Philosophique Globe, or Eye of ye Wonders of Eternity, or Looking-Glass of Wisdom.”

He says:

“The substance and Image of the Soul may be resembled to the Earth, having a fair Flower growing out of it, and also to the Fire and Light; as we see that

Earth is a Centre, but no life; yet it is essential, and a fair flower grows out of it, which is not like Earth … and yet the Earth is the Mother of the Flower.”

The soul is a “fiery Eye, and similitude of the First Principle,” a “Centre of Nature.” ~Carl Jung, CW 9i , Para 592
