Of course, that was just the beginning of my bewilderment with James Hillman. I was confronted in many of my basic assumptions. For example, I felt quite certain about the idea of psychological projection, laid out by Anais Nin’s famous dictum, “We see the world not as it is, but as we are.” Yet as Hillman points out, this idea forces psychic reality to exist only in subjective, inner space. In this mode, the world becomes “wholly dependent upon the subject [me] to breathe it into life” (1992, p. 120). Psychology’s idea of projection, according to Hillman, is profoundly narcissistic! This never occurred to me before, and with this insight, the way opened up to behold a world majestically ensouled – with or without me – and my perspective changed radically. I suddenly felt the presence of the anima mundi all around me, and I was no longer alone.
