Friendly attention…

“If one pays friendly attention to the unconscious it becomes helpful to the ego.  Gradually the realization dawns that a mutual opus is being performed.  The ego needs the guidance and direction of the unconscious to have a meaningful life; and the latent Philosopher’s Stone, imprisoned in the Prima Materia, needs the devoted efforts of the conscious ego to come into actuality.  Together they work on the Great Magistry to create more and more consciousness in the universe.”  (Edinger, Anatomy of the Psyche, p. 230)
