Health and Well-Being: An in-depth look at depth psychology

(Continued)

Kandinsky is renowned as the first abstract artist. Let’s let his spirit close this article, sounding very much like a man with depth psychology in his DNA:

“The all-important spark of inner life today is at present only a spark. Our minds, which are even now only just awakening after years of materialism, are infected with the despair of unbelief, of lack of purpose and ideal. The nightmare of materialism, which has turned the life of the universe into an evil, useless game, is not yet past; it holds the awakening soul still in its grip. This feeble light is but a presentiment, and the soul, when it sees it, trembles in doubt whether the light is not a dream, and the gulf of darkness a reality.”
