I'm almost halfway through Carl Jung's autobiography, Memories, Dreams, Reflections.

I have to say I am thoroughly enjoying this book!  It's been very interesting to read about Jung's experiences through his childhood that helped form the type of thinking he had later in life.  I'm really looking forward to finishing this book.  I would recommend anyone read this if they have any interest whatsoever in Jung.

I love this book. I like listening to the audio book as well.

 

Isn't his life pretty cool?

 

I suggest you read the red book next! I like it best because it is very mystical and more entertaining than his dry collected works.

I made it to the last chapter of the book a couple months ago and got distracted by life. I need to finish. Such an interesting and inspiring story!

 

Spoiler alert for those who haven't read the beginning chapters.

 

I have to admit, I found it quite hilarious that his first archetypal dream was the one in which he walked down into that dusty, ornate basement and saw the ginormous erect penis in all its regal, phallic glory.

 

I totally get it was a symbolic dream, but the immature part of myself couldn't help but crack up! Totally didn't expect that!

Who would've imagined that a giant penis sparked one of the greatest minds to ever exist on Earth?! Lol

I'd love to read the Red Book, but I might have to wait a while, it's around $200 or so and I'm on a bit of budget.  I keep an ongoing list of books that I want to read, so I still have plenty of others to keep me busy until I can buy the red book.

hahahaha yes I agree that was an interesting dream, I was also not expecting it!  He seems to have had a number of insights and questioned life in such a way since his childhood that I can relate with now...I mean in ways that I started questioning things in the last few years.  Most of my life was pretty ignorant in these types of inquiries, and even when I did start questioning such thing, it was often prompted by reading other people's ideas rather than coming to those on my own.  I find it intriguing when I come across people who are naturally inquisitive.
