Jung also believed a primary motivating force of human nature is to be spiritual. He believed that often this pull was in the unconscious mind and that it was from the Soul that processes such as growth, development, and healing arose. He believed that mental illness stemmed from these processes being thwarted in some manner.
Jung was Influential in a variety of disciplines from theology to art to atomic physics and he had a great curiosity for the psychic phenomenon. He believed that the human psyches were genuinely linked together in some way and he called this shared body of knowledge and connection the Collective Unconscious. He postulated that it was from here that all yearning for connection and longing in relationship to self, other, and to spirit arose.
Mysticism comes from the Greek word meaning, "to conceal." It is the pursuit of achieving communion with our conscious awareness of Ultimate Reality, the Divine, Spiritual Truth, or God through direct, personal experience rather than rational thought. It is the direct deep knowing of “Greater Truth” through an experience of “Oneness” this involves something deep within us, which is beyond the senses, the intellect, and the imagination. Another way to describe mysticism is to say that it is the science of removing mental limitations.

The InnerPathic Process, he made visible to the western eye tenets of Eastern thinking and spurred interest in bringing those ideas into western consciousness. This interest in the east strongly influenced the Secret of the Golden Flower” has a strong tie to psychology as well as science and spirit. One of the influences of the work is Carl Jung, who was a Swiss psychiatrist, one of the first to bridge western thinking with eastern philosophy. In his work, ”theoretical of Jung, which can be seen in concepts like the Collective Unconscious, Archetypes, and Synchronicity all of which integrate aspects of eastern perspectives.
Even as each of us grows up with influences by his or her particular mother or father, or doctor or teachers, each person is also influenced at a deeper more fundamental level by unconscious forces; a collective unconscious level. These influences come to us in the form of symbols, images, and stories that touch deep into our unconscious psyche. Symbols that pull us, teach us, and that represents aspects of Godliness or God. Jung may have been the first scientist to bring these concepts into western thought, however, these concepts stem from the beginning of time from most indigenous cultures and spiritual traditions.
These archetypal images always include concepts of mother, father, wise man, healer, lover, and so on. Some examples of these archetypes are The Egyptian Goddess Isis, The God Ra, The Mother Goddess of the Hindu Tradition Durga, The Goddess of Giving and Abundance, Lakshmi, The God Shiva. In Native American tradition, there is a listing of over 200 names. The Aztecs etc., each of these archetypes represent for our unconscious benevolence, possibility, and hope.
The InnerPathic Process utilizes these concepts of archetypes, synchronicity, unconscious, to work with each individual. At the same time, the mystical concepts of connecting to something higher, removing the veil, to discover the inner workings of the Soul is part of the very foundation of the work.
A mystic is one who learns through practice to be able to look behind the veil of limitations to see more clearly with more senses awakened The senses and the intellect are surpassed, and something more secret, more subtle is evoked. It is this “Looking Behind The Veil” that is relevant in the work of The InnerPathic Process the ability to utilize the various techniques, such as meditation, sound, stillness, etc. that creates a space for deep “Inner Seeing.” This is the Empowering aspect that allows each individual to find within their “Highest Good” and the movement towards what is “Right Action” (Best Interest) for them. This is different from rules and dogma and turning over control to “Others.”
Therefore, like Jung and others, Dr. Ken and Dr. Guldal do not see the purpose of life as being a battle. Rather the vision is one of wholeness, of all elements of the self-moving together in a complicated fashion, in and out of balance, in an endless unfolding-blossoming-harmonious dance of growth.
