Carl Jung never said: “There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own Soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.”
What Dr. Jung said in three separate and unrelated statements was:
Seldom, or perhaps never, does a marriage develop into an individual relationship smoothly and without crises; there is no coming to consciousness without pain. ~Carl Jung, Contributions to Analytical Psychology, P. 193
People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own souls. They will practise Indian yoga and all its exercises, observe a strict regimen of diet, learn theosophy by heart, or mechanically repeat mystic texts from the literature of the whole world—all because they cannot get on with themselves and have not the slightest faith that anything useful could ever come out of their own souls. ~Carl Jung, CW 12, Page 99
One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious. The latter procedure, however, is disagreeable and therefore not popular. ~Carl Jung, CW 13, Para 335
Dr. Jung never said: “I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.”
What Dr. Jung said was:
It is not I who create myself, rather I happen to myself. ~Carl Jung, CW 11, Para 391
Dr. Jung never said: Shame is a Soul Eating Emotion.
Dr. Jung never said Thinking is difficult, that’s why most people judge.
Dr. Jung did say: Thinking is difficult, therefore let the herd pronounce judgment! ~Carl Jung, CW 10, Page 344, Para 652.
