A patient’s drawing of a mandala

“I had to abandon the idea of the superordinate position of the ego.
I saw that everything, all paths I had been following, all steps I had taken, were leading back to a single point — namely, to the mid-point. It became increasingly plain to me that the mandala is the centre.It is the exponent of all paths.… I knew that in finding the mandala as an expression of the self I had attained what was for me the ultimate.”

                             A patient’s drawing of a mandala

“I had to abandon the idea of the superordinate position of the ego.


I saw that everything, all paths I had been following, all steps I had taken, were leading back to a single point — namely, to the mid-point. 

It became increasingly plain to me that the mandala is the centre.

It is the exponent of all paths.

… I knew that in finding the mandala as an expression of the self I had attained what was for me the ultimate.”
