I bind the Above with the Below. I bind God and animal. Something in me is part animal, something part God, and a third part human. Below you serpent, within you man, and above you

God. Beyond the serpent comes the phallus, then the earth, then the moon, and finally the coldness and emptiness of outer space. ~Jung’s Soul, The Black Books, Vol. V, Page 270

You are ignorant of the power of matter, just as you know nothing of human power, not even your own.

Matter is the counterpole to God. God lures the phallus out of himself. Yes, he lures matter out of the devilish void, which is God himself.  ~Carl Jung, The Black Books, Vol. V, Page 269

You know that the power of the phallus is great. Did you ever doubt it?

Then know that the power of matter is even greater.

The earth is more powerful than the phallus, he is the transient son, she is the age-old mother.

The hardest, most imperishable matter is the best. It needs to be built into this matter. ~Carl Jung, The Black Books, Vol. V, Page 269

The phallus is not the foundation but the summit of a building, of a church that still lies sunken, like a tower erected over a dome.\

We need this church since we can live in it with you and take part in your life. You have excluded us to your own detriment.

Hence for you the phallus is the first sign of the church in which you hope for community with the living? Speak, why do you hesitate? ~Jung’s Soul, The Black Books, Vol. V, Page 244

“Brimo, the old one-which is how it begins.

The one who bore the son, the towering phallus, who grew out of her shame and strove after the shame of the heavenly wife, who arches over earth.

Because she lies above the son, enveloping him above and below.

The head of the phallus reaches down to her lower parts, but her bliss radiates beyond her head into the spaces, higher than the head of phallus can reach, the blind one, the worm.

She bears and raises him. ~Carl Jung, The Black Books, Vol. V, Page 245-246

Spirituality conceives and embraces. It is womanlike and therefore we call it mater coelestis, the heavenly mother.

Sexuality engenders and creates. It is manlike, and therefore we call it phallus, the earthly father. ~Carl Jung, The Black Books, Vol. VI, Page 223-224

Man and woman become devils become to each other if they do not separate their spiritual ways, for the essence of creation is differentiation. ~Carl Jung, The Black Books, Vol. VI, Page 224

For the mother and the Phallus are superhuman daimons that reveal the world of the Gods.

They affect us more than the Gods since they are very closely akin to our essence. ~Carl Jung, The Black Books, Vol. VI, Page 224

The mother is the grail.

The phallus is the spear. ~Carl Jung, The Black Books, Vol. VI, Page 224

If your community is not under the sign of the mother, it is under the sign of the Phallus.

Absence of community is suffering and sickness.

Community in everything is dismemberment and dissolution. ~Carl Jung, The Black Books, Vol. VI, Page 225

In community we go to the source, which is the mother.

In singleness we go to the future, which is the engendering phallus. ~Carl Jung, The Black Books, Vol. VI, Page 226
