the problem , you will agree, is that it’s ‘impossible’ .. hillman gives examples.. embarrasing situations, awkward connectins, threesomes, the most usual triangle problem, no resolve is possible on this plane..
the point, as he carefully adumbrates in ‘myth of a’, is to lead to love and opening to images and integration of new material.. living mythically is it? soulfully?
the journey he leads in myth of analysis.. (pt 1) soul and desire (the story of psyche and Eros)..
anima awakes p52 (p53).. eros pp61, p63/64, psyche not aphrodite p68/69, more than erotic p71, psyche awakening depends on eros p78, is actually lived into and felt p79, pan (panic and erotic compulsion) saves psyche p81, erotic ‘destructiveness’ is essential p83, born in blood, not in dreamy reflection p85, enter the imaginal p86, a ‘real’ marriage and withdrawing projections p87, love of soul and involvement p90, ‘impossible love’ makes psyche p92, loss of primordial love, suffering and the creative p95, educating and interiorizing p97/98, eros and chaos p98, genuine change p100/101, beauty p101, the birth of their child, pleasure p102, desire is holy p106..
impossible love makes psyche
it should be impossible!! it’s from the gods, not limited human.. it leads to the birth of their child: (holy) pleasure..
