we must help each other remember…

“In one of his dialogues, Plato talks of all learning as remembering.  The chief job of the teacher is to help us to remember all that we gave forgotten.  This fits in well with Jung’s concept of racial memory, his belief that when we are enabled to dip into the intuitive, subconscious self, we remember more than we know.

One of the great sorrows which came to human beings when Adam and Eve left the Garden was the loss of memory,

memory of all that God’s children are meant to be.”

-Madeleine L’Engle, Walking on Water: Reflections of Faith and Art
