The soul is only partly confined to the body

posted by Robert Moss

“The soul is only partly confined to the body, just as God is only partly enclosed in the body of the world.” The author is the Polish physician, alchemist and philosopher Michael Sendivogius (1566-1636), in his tract De Sulphure. The […]

When the body knows what hasn’t happened yet

posted by Robert Moss

The body sometimes seems to “know” about a future event and responds as if that event has already taken place. An old term for this is presentiment.  It can amount to the body presenting anticipatory symptoms. A personal example: I went […]

We dream the future, all the time

posted by Robert Moss

Precognition is knowledge of things to come that we cannot conceivably know about through ordinary channels. A precognitive dream contains specific data about a future event that is not available to you outside the dream. You receive confirmation of a […]

Jung's underworld journey
Let's be candid: Jung's Red Book is not for the faint-hearted. Yes, there are passages of incandescent beauty, perhaps beyond any other of his writings.
