God: the One of many Names (Allah, Yahweh, Brahman etc.) 2. Lord: Divine Incarnation (e.g., Jesus) 3. Human: half-spiritual, half-animal beings 4. The sensible world: every aspect of the cosmos (animal, vegetable and mineral.) Ibn ‘Arabi was thus a pantheistic monist. ‘‘[E]verything in Ibn ‘Arabi’s world-view, whether spiritual or material, invisible or visible, is tajalli [manifestation] of the Absolute except the Absolute in its absoluteness’’ (Izutsu, 1983: 20) In both of these examples, Orpheus transcends the physical boundary defined by death in an attempt to intercede for the benefit of others. Perhaps for this reason, and coupled with his reputation as a poet and a musician, his image is often co-opted as an emblem of romantic creativity and inspiration, two qualities revered and required by all artists , source: Moreover, despite the importance of religion and spirituality to most patients’ lives psychiatrists are not given adequate training to deal with issues arising from disturbances in these realms. Jung’s work on the importance of recognizing the ‘‘shadow’’ in healing of minds and souls has contributed a great deal to cementing productive relationships between patient and therapist, priest and counselor It enforces the "separation of church and state." Encounter with the self: A Jungian commentary on William Blake’s illustrations of the Book of Job. Accessing the numinous: Apolline and Dionysian pathways. Tacey (Eds.), The idea of the numinous: Contemporary Jungian and psychoanalytic perspectives There have been a number of cultural commentaries on the recent spread of psychology as religion. Attending to the wider contemporary therapeutic culture within which it has flourished, Philip Rieff (1966) posits a radical break between religion and psychology with a discussion of the replacement of early religious ‘‘positive communities’’ by therapeutically-orientated ‘‘negative communities.’’ Traditional societies were ‘‘positive communities’’ governed by a cultural symbolic which encouraged restraint of behavior and an ethic which favored the group over the individual , cited:

Homburger and Erik’s mother, Karla Abrahamsen, were Jewish, and led an active religious life together with their family. Homburger eventually adopted Erik, he was not able to convey his total emotional acceptance to Erik as his son. Identity was an important personal question for Erikson. He never learned who his real father was, but he believed that he looked like him Jung’s attempt to bring analytical psychology into relation with Christianity ultimately led to the question of Christ as a psychological figure. From Jung’s alchemical view, Christianity had depreciated the body and ‘‘the feminine’’ and, in so doing, ultimately had devalued ‘‘nature.’’ Alchemy, with its emphasis on matter, compensated for this lack in Christianity and thus offered the possibility of the further development of the religious psyche. yellow, encircled by a tailbiting serpent rising on wings
They determine what knowledge is essential to right understanding. This essentialism helps to explain why so many of the world’s religious communities have established which stories will get told and retold in ritual settings by sealing a canon (Schussler, 1994). Yet there is a two-fold danger in this sealing: first, as stories grow old, they get told so grossly out of context as to be at times almost unintelligible and so are no longer heard in the same spirit as they were originally; and second, newer stories set in familiar contexts that would communicate the proper spirit in intelligible contexts may never be granted a hearing She found a fourth door, at first locked, but when she pushed again, it also opened. Suddenly a gold necklace she was wearing fell down from her neck and she left it, planning to pick it up on her way back A1 M85 2005: Contents -- Introduction / John D.

This process is comparable to what psychiatrist Laurence Kirmayer, in his review of cognitive research on dissociation (1994), designates as a component of ‘‘reverie.’’ Indeed, Kirmayer (1999) describes the recent psychotherapeutic work of Witztum and Goodman precisely in terms of split-off aspects of the self which are experienced as supernatural entities and spirits As Hayden notes, the problematical nature of syncretism increases with the growth of the polarizations captured by the word ‘‘communalism’’ in Indian discourse and the comparable ‘‘fundamentalisms’’ elsewhere (Hayden, 2002: 207) Scott Peck articulates this non-equation of evil actions with necessary evil. He defines evil not by the committing of evil actions – because if this were the case, he argues, we would all be evil – or by the magnitude of evil committed Although for the majority of Muslims the idea of incarnation is the greatest form of sin, some Shi’a believe the Imam was the actual embodiment of the divine light. For the Druze of Lebanon, for example, the Imam has been said to be the literal incarnation of God on earth (Martin, 1982; Parrinder, 1982; Waida, 1987). Psychological Interpretations Given the nature of the claim, the idea of divine incarnation is not subject to experimental or laboratory examination , e.g. What we may conjecture to be the intra-psychic result of such transgressions is social regression to a pre-Oedipal stage. Borrowing from Object-Relations, where relationships are severely disrupted, there is risk of regression to the schizoid position, a psychic space of womblike safety but indifference to relationships – between internal and external objects, or self and nature , source: Either the positive or negative inner and private experience we associate with mystics is what Rudolf Otto (1917/1958) referred to as the experience of the numinous. Even the relatively frequent experience the normal worshiper has of connection with the divine during the act of worship is an example of hierophany. Experience of and with the divine does not have to be dramatic and earth shattering, it can be quiet and secure Carefully selected and corrected under the Han dynasty (206 BC–220 AD), they became the official Ten Wings which ‘‘protected’’ the Chou I and allowed its understanding. The twofold structure of the I Ching, the compilation and – its hermeneutical ground – the official commentaries, was then fixed. The eastern Chou I consists of 450 oracular formulae attached to each of the 64 hexagrams of the book, and to each of their constituting six monograms, or lines Some have based an argument from the problem of evil on the charge that this is not the best possible world ref.: The experience of the Self for Jung is numinous and feels like a river flowing toward its source , cited: Grand Rapids, MI: Baker. best that is in us. For Fromm, the unconscious is simultaneously the best and worst in us, neither ‘‘a God whom we must worship nor a dragon we must slay’’ (Fromm, 1950)
