The Art of The Unconscious -II-


So the ghost land is, as it were, the receptacle of ancestral spirits or souls or lives which are meant to come off.

That is the reason why, in the primitive idea of redemption, the ancestral souls are liberated from the belly of the whale-dragon.

Exactly the same idea is expressed in the Epistles of St. Paul where he says that all living beings, the whole of creation, is waiting for the revelation of the children of God; they are waiting to celebrate their apokatastasis, their reinstallation with the redemption of the children of God.

~ Carl Jung, Visions Seminar, p 1280
