Been An Author Of Fiction 
an author of fiction fiction and poetry for over forty I ve been eading the writings of Carl Jung for over twenty Jung s theories now provide a background for all my own work But I m a layman when it comes to psychology and spirituality and Dr Stein is President of the International School of Analytical Psychology Zurich Plus he is an ordained minister He knows what he s talking about when it comes to spiritual matters and here he s following Jung s trail of hints for a possible way forward in our own troubled times page 6Specifically what is Murray Stein presenting here This "Is The Way He Puts It It "the way he puts it It a vision for a new type of humanism based on the idea of integration of the divine into the human which amounts to the incarnation of the full imago Dei for all who accept the challenge This is the challenge and the opportunity that psychology offers a challenge to the traditional eligious notion of a supernatural metaphysical God and an opportunity for a future in which spirituality will be woven into the fabric of conscious and everyday life page 6 7That is uite an undertaking Does he deliver And the answer is an uneuivocal yes I found it difficult to proceed through the material with any sort of speed because I kept stopping to eflect on the profound implications of statements like this The psyche is linked in short to a transcendent factor called Divinity that shapes it structurally page 17 That was what I d been sensing throughout my own life but couldn t come to terms with or even have the courage to believe was eal In Chapter 8 Not Just A Butterfly Dr Stein gives an example of transcendence from his own life that helped me to understand a powerful event in mine an example of Jung s synchronicity that drove home the importance of paying attention to understand the significance to what is happening to us He says that Perhaps the most tragic failure of human consciousness is that it so easily misses what is untoward and unusua. ItualityMurray Stein explores the problem of spirituality within the cultural context of modernity and offers a way forward without The Frankenstein Teacher (Corgi Pups) relapsing into traditional or mythological modes of consciousness Chapters work towards finding the proper vessel for contemporary spirituality and dealing with the ethical issues that crop up along the way Stein shows how it is an individual path but not an isolationist one often using manyesources borrowed from a variety of eligious traditions it is a way of symbol dream and experiences of the nu. L A little later he says that When we stand Suarely In The Presence Of in the presence of especially of a loved one our senses seem to be attuned to hints of transcendence page 48 This was what had happened to me several years ago with the tragic passing of the woman who had been my one true love in life I had been warned ten days before in a dream which was much than a dream that something was coming and even consoled beforehand His experience gave credence to mineDr Stein never leaves behind the Jungian concepts of individuation and transcendent function but always builds on them In Chapter 2 individuation and transcendent function but always builds on them In Chapter 2 Room for Divinity he states that The human task is to incarnate as much of the self and therefore also of what stands behind the self which is the Ground of Being as possible in a single lifetime This is the task of individuation and it is what I mean by minding the self page 19 And so it goes all the way through the last chapter titled Minding the Self which is an insightful and powerful eading of The Ten Ox Herding Images of Zen Buddhism a favorite of Jung sDr Stein also deals with the larger picture society in general and the individual s place within it In Chapter 13 The Problem of Ethics he states that This view ecognizes that individuation does not proceed in isolation from the wider world It is not a sealed off and isolated process limited to the individual personality If an individual human being minds the self at the personal level and finds the way toward inner unity of the psyche s inherent polarities this will enhance order and wholeness as well in the surrounding social and natural worlds Conversely if the individual succumbs to inner disorder and disintegrates at a personal level and emains there this will have a deleterious effect on the surrounding world page 94It s an exciting and "Exhilarating Excursion Through Murray Stein S Post Jung World Of "excursion through Murray Stein s post Jung world of psychology one that provides a new approach to spiritual development on the path to individuation For me it is uite possibly the most important book I ve ever ea.
