Jung, Civilization in Transition, CW 10, para. 478. Jung would not have been surprised by what followed. He is the coordinator for the Portland PadmaSambhava Buddhist Center. My unconscious apparently contains the living figure of Jung. Rather than ghostly, his presence seems substantial, actually quite huge, and very warm. Jung comments, “The situation is about the same as if a small boy of six had been given a bag of dynamite for a birthday present.” Yeah, I find myself thinking, but the bag of dynamite in our case is nuclear.  Jung, Civilization in Transition, CW 10, para. Postscript (3/9/2016) - If you liked this article, you might also my discussion of Donald's Trump's Values. Without even having to think about it for a second, he responds, “a complete spiritual renewal is needed.  Jung, Psychology and Alchemy, CW 12, para. The next moment, as if a light-bulb has gone off inside of his head, Jung snaps out of his momentary state of melancholy and exclaims, “Greater than all physical dangers are the tremendous effects of delusional ideas.” Ideas, what Plato calls “the eyes of the soul,” are ways of regarding things, the means by which we see, the perspectives through which we view the world and create our life. Trump had his finger on the pulse of the public, in the same way Jung elaborated on the rise of 20th century populism in Europe, Trump acted as a figurehead for a large portion of the disenfranchised public and rather than imposing his own belief structure on them … You can change your choices at any time by visiting Your Privacy Controls. It is hypnotized by itself and therefore cannot be argued with.  The Native American people call this mind-virus “wetiko.” I have written a book about this – Dispelling Wetiko: Breaking the Curse of Evil.”. As if wanting to complete his thoughts on an inflated consciousness, Jung says, with complete certainty, that it “is incapable of learning from the past, incapable of understanding contemporary events, and incapable of drawing right conclusions about the future. Jung elaborates, “Inferiority feelings are usually a sign of inferior feeling—which is not just a play on words.” Jung’s point rings true – from all appearances, Donald Trump’s feeling function and sense of empathy seem highly underdeveloped and stunted. Jung seems deeply satisfied by our meeting.  Jung, Two Essays on Analytical Psychology, CW 7, p. 4. HuffPost is part of Verizon Media. 442. I can only imagine. I have the thought that I am in the presence of a living genius.  Jung, Civilization in Transition, CW 10, para. Sounding quite pleased at my understanding, Jung comments, “Therefore it is always single individuals who are moved by the collective problem and who are called upon to respond and contribute to its solution by tackling it in their own lives and not running away from it.” As I’ve previously written, it is the artists—those among us who are actively engaged with the creative spirit—who will help to heal our world. Jung adds that Trump “symbolized something in every individual.” Commenting on Trump’s supporters, Jung points out that “people would never have been taken in and carried away so completely if this figure had not been a reflected image … ” before Jung completes his thought, I finish it for him by blurting out loud “ … of their own unconscious shadow.” Satisfied that he has gotten across his point, Jung nods in agreement. 747. It is as if he is giving me a transmission, pointing me in the right direction. As if once again reading my thoughts, Jung points out, “The man who promises everything is sure to fulfill nothing, and everyone who promises too much is in danger of using evil means in order to carry out his promises, and is already on the road to perdition.” I immediately think about our president’s proclivity to not just “promise everything,” but to lie at seemingly every chance he gets. Like Faust, he is bound to make a pact with the devil and thus slips off the straight path.” I think how Trump’s lies are believed as truth and taken seriously by his supporters, as if their faculty of discernment has been disabled. 454. I notice that I am a bit taken aback by Jung’s continual telepathic powers—how does he know my mind so well?—until I remember that he is an imaginal figure not separate from my mind. I find myself wondering, what would Jung say about the madness currently playing out in our world if he were alive today? He is the founder of the “Awakening in the Dream Community” in Portland, Oregon. I express my concern to Jung that Trump is severely inflated, by which I mean he is unconsciously identified with, instead of being in conscious relationship to, what Jung refers to as the Self (which can be equated to the higher Self, i.e., God). Kim Jong Un has praised his "special" relationship with US President Donald Trump, with one of North Korea's most respected diplomats telling state media the two leaders maintain "trust in … I see why so many people have said that he has an unforgettable laugh. I am more than satisfied; I’m in a practically ecstatic state, literally overflowing with gratitude.  Jung, The Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious, CW 9i, para.  In his writings, Jung refers to this madness as a “totalitarian psychosis” (see Jung, The Practice of Psychotherapy, CW 16, para. As if in possession of a priceless gift, he seems delighted at the opportunity to share his insights with someone who is open to receiving them. In The Philosophical Tree, he wrote: ... Donald Trump rode a particular wave of attitudes into the Presidency, a response to a political climate that had grown too stale, conformist, and yes, politically correct. He continues, “The true leaders of mankind are always those who are capable of self-reflection.” In self-reflection we recognize ourselves in the mirror of the world.  Jung, Civilization in Transition, CW 10, para. It inevitably dooms itself to calamities that must strike it dead.” His words send a chill down my spine, as once again it feels as if he is describing our current president. 462. As if validating my thought, Jung says, “Inflation magnifies the blind spot of the eye.” His comment makes me think of how our species certainly seems to be suffering from a form of psychic blindness, as if we are wearing blinders and have become myopic in our viewpoint, lacking clear vision. ... Lewandowski and David Bossie’s campaign memoir Let Trump Be Trump, that the current president is a student of Carl Jung. In describing Trump, Jung uses phrases such as a man acting out “the power fantasies of an adolescent” who behaves in public “like a man living in his own biography.” I am beginning to understand that Jung is able to so precisely describe Trump because our president, as if sent by central casting, is simply the latest embodiment, in an exaggerated form, of a deeper archetypal pathology—existing in the collective unconscious itself—that has played itself out throughout history. Upon imagining this, I immediately sense the presence of Jung. 485.  Jung, The Symbolic Life, CW 18, para. A leader, such as Donald Trump, will invariably appear—in my language, get “dreamed up”—who will express, reflect and, like a lightning rod, amplify these darker forces. As if amplifying my thoughts, Jung exclaims, “Yet, whoever reflects upon himself is bound to strike upon the frontiers of the unconscious, which contains what above all else he needs to know.” I love Jung’s idea that the unconscious, instead of simply being a repository of what we repress, contains what we need to know.
