The state of your soles

Schuhe und Sohlen als Symbole der inneren Arbeit. Alte Symbole. Nicole, Psycholgical Commentaries:

„Psychological shoes are meant; not to be borne on the literal feet, but the feet of the psychological man. The psychological feet are where the psychological man touches life. In this Work we have to walk in life differently from the way we once walked. We are taught how to use the daily events of life as the means of work on oneself. For instance, we are told not to identify. Now it is obvious that a man practising non-identifying is walking through life in a different way from a man who is mechanically identified with everything. This can be expressed by using the sense-image of a man walking in self-made shoes of special leather. Like all parables, this will not appeal to the sensual mind. But the meaning is not sensual but psychological, and it is just here that the wholly sensual person fails to jump up to the psychological meaning. Now we are told that we gradually have to insulate ourselves more and more from the influences of life – otherwise we continually lose force. To awaken we must conserve force.“

Getting a second opinion from Jung on the Battle of the Giants

„There is no energy unless there is a tension of opposites; hence it is necessary to discover the opposite to the attitude of the conscious mind…Repressed content must be made conscious so as to produce a tension of opposites, without which no forward movement is possible…Just as high always longs for low and hot for cold, so all consciousness, perhaps without being aware of it, seeks its unconscious opposite, lacking which it is doomed to stagnation, congestion and ossification. Life is born only of the spark of opposites.“
