“My soul, where are you? Do you hear me? I speak, I call you—-are you there?”
“Don’t these simple questions somehow resonate deeply? Aren’t they timeless, evergreen, universal?
These poetic lines were written by Carl Jung, the renowned 20th century psychologist, in a journal entry of his long-hidden diary-like work entitledThe Red Book. The other day I was fortunate to see the first-ever exhibit and published translation ofThe Red Book at the Rubin Museum of Art in New York City. Until this exhibit, The Red Book has never before been seen in public; Jung’s Swiss nuclear family apparently feared that its publication might harm Jung’s reputation.”
