Jung on Alchemy (9): the Coniunctio – part 3 – the Red Stone

Quote

“For, as long as Satan is not integrated, the world is not healed and man is not saved. …

I feel it here that the Master is in his higher point of his genius state.

The Sin

I sinned, a sin all filled with pleasure
wrapped in an embraced, warm and fiery
I sinned in a pair of arms
that were vibrant, virile, violent.

In that dim and quiet place of seclusion
I looked into his eyes brimming with mystery
my heart throbbed in my chest all too excited
by the desire glowing in his eyes.

In that dim and quiet place of seclusion
as I sat next to him all scattered inside
his lips poured lust on my lips
and I left behind the sorrows of my heart.

I whispered in his ear these words of love:
“I want you, mate of my soul
I want you, life-giving embrace
I want you, lover gone mad”

Desire surged in his eyes
red wine swirled in the cup
my body surfed all over his
in the softness of the downy bed.

I sinned, a sin all filled with pleasure
next to a body now limp and languid
I know not what I did, God
in that dim and quiet place of seclusion.

Guest Post: Achilles’ Shield and Schiller’s Philosophy of Aesthetics, by Corry Shores

via Guest Post: Achilles’ Shield and Schiller’s Philosophy of Aesthetics, by Corry Shores

A poet treats his stuff in common when he performs unimportant acts and passes over important ones. He treats it big when he connects it to the big one. Homer knew how to treat the shield of Achilles in a very witty manner, although the making of a shield is something very mean in substance.

 When I really started to love myself, I was able to understand that emotional pain and sorrow just warned me not to live against the truth of my life. Today I know that we call it AUTHENTICITY

 When I started to really love myself, I realized what a difficult situation someone was when I was imposing my wishes. And when it was not the right time and the man was not ready, even if he was me. Today I know that what we say UNDERSTANDING

 When I started to really love myself, I stopped longing for another life and I was watching around me that everything was telling me to grow up. Today I know that we call this QUALITY

 When I started to really love myself, I realized that in every circumstance I was in the right place and always at the right time. This made me calm down. Today I know that we are saying this TRUTH

 When I started to really love myself, I stopped wasting my free time and making great plans for the future. Today I only do what I like and it fills me with joy, I love and makes my heart laugh. In my own way and at my own pace. Today I know that we call it ELICRINIA

 When I started to really love myself, I was released from being unhealthy for me. From food, people, things, situations, and everything that has left me alone. I used to call this “healthy selfishness.” Today I know this is what we call AUTUMN

 When I started to really love myself, I stopped being always right. So I was wrong much less. Today I know that we call this SIMPLY

 When I started to really love myself, I refused to continue living in my past and worrying about my future. Now I live every day every moment I know ALL is happening. Today I know that we call it COMPLETE

 When I started to really love myself, I realized that my thoughts made me a person miserable and sick. When I invoked the power of my heart, my logic found a precious ally. Today I say this SOUL OF HEART

 When I started to really love myself, I realized that we should not be afraid of the conflicts, conflicts and any problems we face with ourselves or with others. This is what we call SELF-ASSESSMENT

I know new stars are born from explosions in the Universe. Today I know that THIS IS THE LIFE.
