Carl Jung on the Central Position of the Mandala

 

“I had to abandon the idea of the superordinate position of the ego….

I saw that everything, all paths I had been following, all steps I had taken, were leading back to a single point — namely, to the mid-point.

It became increasingly plain to me that the mandala is the centre.

It is the exponent of all paths….

I knew that in finding the mandala as an expression of the self I had attained what was for me the ultimate.”
