Los at His Furnace
In Vision of the Last Judgment (E562), Blake states:
"All Life consists of these Two Throwing off Error <& Knaves from our company> continuallyHere is a quote from a Jungian psychologist, Rodney Ravenswood, which reflects Blakean themes of undergoing the changes necessary for transformation.
& recieving Truth
Continually. he who is out of the Church &
opposes it is
no less an Agent of Religion than he who is in it. to be an Error
& to be Cast out is a part of Gods Design No man can Embrace
True Art till he has Explord & Cast out False Art
or he will be
himself Cast out by those
who have Already Embraced True Art Thus My Picture is a
History of Art & Science [& its]
Which is Humanity itself. What
are all the Gifts of the
Spirit but Mental Gifts whenever any Individual Rejects Error &
Embraces Truth a Last Judgment passes upon that Individual"
"To the extent that the persona is founded upon processes of denial it must eventually be shed/shattered in order to make way for any real growth in the personality. This is as true of the collective persona of national identity as it is of the individual self image. If the persona is to realise its potential to be that through which one's more authentic nature sounds (persona = to sound through), it must be grounded in an embrace and dialogue with the shadow as inner other."
