Quote of the day

The old alchemists were nearer to the central truth of the psyche [...] when they strove to deliver the fiery spirit from the alchemical elements, and treated the mystery as though it lay in the dark and silent womb of nature. It was still outside them. The upward thrust of evolving consciousness was bound sooner or later to put an end to the projection, and to restore to the psyche what had been psychic from the beginning. CW 12 - par 562
