“Art is a kind of innate drive that seizes a human being and makes him its instrument. The artist is not a person endowed with free will who seeks his own ends, but one who allows art to realize its purposes through him.”

— Carl Gustav Jung (via capitulatedvixen)

Carl Gustav Jung, from the Red Book…
"When Carl Jung embarked on an extended self-exploration, the result was "The Red Book," a large, illuminated volume he created between 1914 and 1930. However, only a handful of people have ever seen it. Now, in a complete facsimile and translation, it is available to scholars and the general public."

“To be “respectable” means, as the word tells us, to allow oneself to be seen; a respectable person is one who comes up to public expectations, who wears an ideal mask—in short, is a fraud.”

— Carl Jung (via hierarchical-aestheticism)

“Children, eat to live; sleep to awaken.”

Mātā Amṛtānandamayī Devī (via bhavblog)

“It would be easier to roll up the entire sky into a small cloth than it would be to obtain true happiness without knowing the Self.”

— Upanishads (via bhavblog)

Memento mori is a Latin phrase translated as “Remember your mortality”, “Remember you must die” or “Remember you will die”.[2] It refers to a genre of artworks that vary widely but which all share the same purpose: to remind people of their mortality, an artistic theme dating back to antiquity.
