Truth of L♾V3 ~XXXIX~


Love is such a fateful factor in the life of every human being because, more than anything else, it has the power to release the living from their ego-bound consciousness; it brings us a hint of a transcendental happening, making it possible for us to attend a divine play of the union of Shiva and Shakti, god and goddess, beyond the banality of this earthly life.

It is a mystery which no human being has so far penetrated but which is at the same time the goal of life, born anew in each of us.
All that we can say is that it is part of a process of reciprocal individuation, of becoming conscious and whole in the encounter.

~ Marie-Louise von Franz, Projection and Re-Collection in Jungian Psychology, p. 140
