The mandala can also be an image of eternity cycling through time and as such images soul’s and Nature’s circular journeys, as they are reflected in, for example, the Native American Medicine Wheel, in seasonal, rebirth and karmic cycles, in mythic journeys of going out and returning changed to one’s point of origin, and in the zodiacal wheel as life’s twelve archetypal stages of personal growth.
This cyclic transformation is also at the heart of ancient Chinese meditation. When the spiritual light in the body moves through rhythmical breathing in a circle, all the opposite energies of heaven and earth, sun and moon, light and dark, are crystallised and form what the Chinese called the Golden Flower, an inner mandala imaging the balanced, open and centred heart.
I have to agree that a lot is not understood towards the “essence of dreamtime.”
Like anything I guess, if you were to take the time and do the analysis that Jung did in his efforts to record what was supposedly primitive in him, then what use the capacity to dream, let alone for all to dream?
Such construction then would not be understood or apparent predispositions to create the realities that we can, and do. Ingenuity, would have lack lustered against the background of the potentials dream time can offer?
But it would still be more then this.
I will give some examples shortly, as to the nature and psychology I found relevant to the constructive models used to systematically correlate life to model assumptions.. I did spend a couple of years recording as well.
Richards Wagners’s Ring of Nibelung
Jean Shinoda Bolen, M.D. Ring of Power was interesting.
Strange that we could have seen A Jungian Understanding of the Wagners Ring cycle, portrayed in todays world and how could have this been accomplished. But by re-introducing a fictional story and embueing it with the archetypal structures of what Jean Shinida Bolen called, “The Abandon Child, The Authoritarian Father, and the Disempowered Feminine.”
The importance of physiologically understanding the close relation of our states of mind, and the resulting emotive upheavals, as effects in our bodies? Very important. Such “states of mind” then become important in how we think about our selves, or others, and how we practise, watching our “thoughts of things?”

The most important archetype of all is the self. The self is the ultimate unity of the personality and issymbolized by the circle, the cross, and the mandala figures that Jung was fond of painting. A mandala is a drawing that is used in meditation because it tends to draw your focus back to the center, and it can be as simple as a geometric figure or as complicated as a stained glass window. The personifications that best represent self are Christ and Buddha, two people who many believe achieved perfection. But Jung felt that perfection of the personality is only truly achieved in death
Part of my contention is, that the “self” regardless of who you are, is seeking wholeness. I also contend that this is embedded in our current struggles within the theoretics of the science world? Attempts to “define” the theory of everything. Why, importance on re-cognition helps to identify, when you are within the dream time, once connected with aspects of, “defining this wholeness.” Recognizing thepatterns that reveal these aspects as, a integrative realization of being?
Why Liminocentric structures are important to be understood.
No matter how “ancient” the nature of the schematics are, these patterns are inherent in self?
It’s as “if” you line up all aspects of the personalities, and what ever “disquise it used” from one life to the next, it was always part of the pattern, of the whole self. A slice of the pie. As you rotated around the circle, it was you experiencing the different pieces of life, that represented different aspects of the soul.
One was always trying to remember not the “primitive nature” and thought evolution discriptive in the brain’s “developemental mode” although such thinking has lead to a better encasing each time to believe possibly that the newer generations of people will have different attachements to the current structures of the brain?
What “kinds of thinking” lead “neuronical” developement? Restablish, routes electically impulsed? So the resulting routes re-establish are from a clear picture in mind, of what you have always done? Arm moves, if we see it move?
Once you align to the point in the center, it’s as though you align every life time, and quickly realize, the energy that flows through you is the essence of all life. Like a lines of energy that run all over our planet and meet in different locations? That one location, allows the self to be expressed in it’s diversities. As part of that wheel.
The ancient man realized that such vibration were indicative of the variety of these locations. Like negative, positive, or a combination of both. Like the earth, we are no different?
As I related in the blog entry comments of “trademarks of the geometers II it was from that perspective the relation developed on plate 47 and indications of YING Yang interconnectivity to oriental philosophy that I encouraged bubble idealizations.
It is important to look at “Plate 47.”
But I wanted to give another example that better demonstrates the ancient mind in it’s recognition of these diversities of the feminine/ masculine and this, “interplay of being” within context of who you are at any moment?
Speaking, as the child, or the parent, or the adult? These are masked the inhernet nature of design? Tao te Ching? Line’s given to the examples of “broken and unbroken” and the “64 Hexagrams” are instrumental in displaying the diversity of action according to the probabilistic nature revealled in the dream world of predictable action, and it’s consequences. These are features of the “creative realization” that mind is embued with in dream time, as well as, recognizing the reality of of our actions immediately upon their implementation?
These pages illumine the very principles which inspired the ancient Greek philosophers Heraclitus, Pythagoras and Plato, and cosmologists Giordano Bruno and Johannes Kepler.
The link on picture also gives one a clue as to how the musical string is actually visualized. To give you a better example of this, you must be able to see into the working of the nature described here, not only harmoncially considered in the harmonical oscillator as a basis of all reality, but of how thes ethink resonate within th emind,a swelok at the chaldni plate as a comparison of the WMAP map as well as, the nodal operation depicted in the results of the brain’s consolidation of conceptual realization?
CARL JUNG by Dr. C. George Boeree
Jung dreamt a great deal about the dead, the land of the dead, and the rising of the dead. These represented the unconscious itself — not the “little” personal unconscious that Freud made such a big deal out of, but a new collective unconscious of humanity itself, an unconscious that could contain all the dead, not just our personal ghosts
<a href="http://eskesthai.blogspot.com/2006/03/books-for-dead-are-really-books-for.html" target=_BLank title="Tibetan Book of the Dead Teachings
with Lama Kusang Norbu”>
IN context of the books of the dead, it was more about “life” that the ancients mind was a concern.
It had to have ways of “seeing in life” to perpetuate the struggle through all that we had created? Dis-ease? As well as. realizing the fog of the dream world was no less the roads we would have to travel in death, as we made ourway to the clear light? The very fabrications of the dream world were a reminder of the “creative genius” that was in human capable hands, had we thought about, “building a life” on this planet?
