Words from Robert Bly

A Little Book on the Human Shadow

“Marilyn Monroe called for projections as part of her power longing, and her disturbance must have been about victimization in childhood. The success of projection and recall, done so successfully in tribal culture, face to face, goes out of whack when the mass media arrives.

In the economy of the psyche, her death was inevitable and even right. No single human being can carry so many projections- that is, so much unconsciousness- and survive. So it’s infinitely important that each person bring back his or her own.”

That’s all folks. Happy New Year!
