How To Become Whole (Carl Jung & The Individuation Process)

The main struggle in our time is not capitalism vs socialism, but rather decentralization vs centralization; put another way, individualism vs collectivism, as the individual is the smallest unit of decentralization. Unfortunately, one cannot claim to be for individualism while still having an underdeveloped Self that is subject to collective whims and/or egocentrism via the unconscious shadow. Placing one’s conscious focus on the unconscious shadow aspect of Self, for the purpose of integrating it, will aid one in incorporating the shadow aspect into the light of consciousness. When we remain unaware of our unconscious shadow aspects, we are still subject to the manipulation of our particular collective via group psychological methodologies; taking responsibility for our individual psychological makeup is therefore the solution to external psychological steering and manipulation.
