Where is the place for the Divine Feminine in the rationalized mind?
Updated: Feb 24, 2021
I had a wild idea to investigate around rationalism and the body/mind concept in order to find answers to my hypothesis, that divine feminine energy is somehow included the 'body' concept and was rejected from the rationalist mind.
I started my investigation on the line of monism and considered about the idea of the One Substance what exists in all and nothing exists without it. I kept it as a basic point connected to Spinoza ideas about that only One Substance exists, and it is neither mental, nor physical. I would like to put that point down that Spinoza spoke about the Substance as nor body, nor mind.
But go forward with the historical line and explore Kant's idea who gave an utmost priority to the mind above all by stated that nothing at all existed outside the mind. And then came Descartes declaring that his whole existence based on his logical mind.
As a Jungian psychologist I would like to ask one question. Where did the unconscious part of their mind vaporize from that account? Did that just simply disappeare without any kind of sign?
Most probably it did not, because the fact that religions exist are one of the greatest evidence that the unconciousness needed to be taken care of. Archetypes, the God and also the Goddess figures arrive back at night in dream-forms and affect our everyday life and patterns.
While Descartes said that there was no room for mental state to be corrected because if we had them, they were true, mental hospitals show something different.
So there need to be something out of the conscious mind. Is that only an empty body with no independent senses?
