Overlapping Re-Incarnations

Self Portrait, by Oleg Shupliak
Will “I” as an individual, occur again?

Where then, to find comfort, when your spouse takes their last breath, hand growing limp and eyes unseeing? When your child is born dead? When your friend dies suddenly and unexpectedly? When your strong and vital parents wither into shells of their former selves?

“As the individual is not just a single, separate being, but by his very existence presupposes a collective relationship, it follows that the process of individuation must lead to more intense and broader collective relationships and not to isolation.” — Carl Jung

Art is the communication between past and present, allowing the patterns of past lives to find new shape again and again in new contexts.

Manifestation Apotheosis, by Sylvio Vieira

“Though much is taken, much abides; and though
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts”

— Ulysses, Alfred Lord Tennyson
