C.G. Jung’s ‘I’ that relates to the Imaginal “I”
From Lament of the Dead ~ Psychology after Jung’s Red Book
James Hillman: What matters is the therapy. Well, (comma added) the therapy is the actual therapy of our world today, which the public evidently relates, because hung=dreads, thousands of copies are being bought and carried home with the people. They must recognize that this bit of history, which is the ‘Red Book.’ Is their therapy, the therapy of our time.

Jung’s I and Imaginal I Within
And, isn’t this the place of connection where we interact with our inner self and with the unconscious and enact from The Place of Creation, in my case a Man Womb?

I began Doodling a Mark of Self moving to a Mark of Soul response visually into the conversation. Full-on unsaid, though, as I had already spoken too many words…
And, interestingly, watercolors from my Constructing the Center watercolor series from 1993 to 1995 came to mind right after Doodling these three in a sketchbook. I’ll present the three inages from today. Then, visually pause, give you space to experience, and then lift into this post the naturally refined ore from the past in the watercolors from the CtC series I feel that apply after.

Pardon, Icarus. You should’ve vetted your Construction Documents, regardless of your youth.
No shame there, though. Don’t fret,
Worry is useless. Your Dad, Daedalus, was an Architect For The Chrissakes. Give yourself some credit.
Imitation my be the 1st sign of genius,
Though, I gather he didn’t review your work to set you up for much success.That’s way too bad.
I am truly sorry for your fall.

And, though I gather my current Mark of Self, my Mark of Soul revs its engine and runs the track with this, personal Astro Seal, currently… though, ask me again tomorrow… I have some gears to run up and down through… and… Yup, some walls to smack right into at 100 Gs to learn. Though, blood and sweat and tears? You don’t need to be subjected to that carnage in the process.
Was more likely This in 1992…for just a bit as it tracked to…
And, even more concisely, this in 1993…
Again…. Ask me again tomorrow, or at another pivotal point.
