my recollection is that he had recurrent visions of europe swallowed by an ocean of blood before 1st world war and his attempts to understand those visions led him to a wider conception of human consciousness outside of the christian culture he was born into (and red book).
reading secrets of golden flower translation by cleary (with appendix on willhelm/jung's translation of same) helped me better understand lingering christian framework in jung's work
"only" 400-ish pages (of 1500) left to read of cleary's english translation of avatamsaka sutra
what have i learned so far?
+ buddhist cosmology
+ religious texts usually explicitly propagandize their supporting institutions
+ ancient texts are beneficial to minds of modern readers
+ nature of reality will always be beyond my ability to comprehend it
+ slow and steady wins the race
+ everything matters
+ this list is incomplete and inaccurate
i agree that he was never a true believer
red book "revealed" to me that he was imprinted with christianity (and i acknowledge his open mind toward consciousness in its many manifestations ("flavors")) ...
i will own that it may well be my own anti-clericism coloring my recollections of the red book
prolly worth another read through ...
i used to imagine jung as a buddha of sorts (connected to deep mystical truths); the more i read, the more i understand he was only a human being (with a broader, more evolved outlook on human culture(s)) ...
so that's progress for me, right?
i got something quite different from red book-
for all his awareness and interest in non-western cultures (and their archetypes), christianity permeates his visions and expressions thereof
his god always seemed the christian god (sometimes "in translation")
maybe i'll take another look ...

not just talking about racist, jingoistic crap either

as i said, i don't strike it ever
so it's only rain and boston city air that gets at it
there were no good pix of it that i've seen from this recent festival, but i'll try to remember to send you one (so you can see how it's holding up)
btw, played a few festivals this weekend, and (as always) many people came up to me to say how beautiful the mandala you made for me is.
i could only agree wholeheartedly.

going to lineage can be frought with challenges ...
i'd suggest you buy another cheap phone that *is* fully supported (used pixel worked for me ($200.) (i also acknowledge this may or may not be financially feasable for you)) and get lineage working as you'd like before switching over to it (if acceptable)
having a bricked phone was somewhat alarming to me (as it happened several times while i was making the transition).
i can't say how it may feel for you ...
best of luck to you on whatever path you may choose!
i agree completely!
(hope you have been able to find any superpowers you may need)
also (if possible) consider recessed handles for cabinets ...
looks good though- nice work!
