dreams
pathway to the unconscious

Preface

C.G. Jung On Dreams:

--"Dreams are the direct expression of unconscious psychic activity."

--"It is the way of dreams to give us more than we ask."

--"The dream is specifically the utterance of the unconscious. . . . It is imperative that we do not pare down the meaning of a dream to fit some narrow doctrine."

--"Every dream is a source of information and a means of self-regulation; . . . dreams are our most effective aids in building up the personality."

--C.G. Jung, Modern Man in Search of a Soul 2, 5, 11, 18 (New York: Harcourt, Brace & Co., 1939)
