… That is what people are looking for – an Archetypal experience that gives them an incorruptible value… You see, they depend upon other conditions; they depend up on their own desires, their ambitions… Because they have no value in themselves… They are only rational and they are not in the possession of a treasure that would make them independent…

…But when that girl can hold that experience she does not, she cannot depend anymore… Because that value is in herself and that is a sort of liberation… She is able to continue her path, her individuation… The acorn can become an oak and not a donkey. – C.G. Jung (from a conversation about Transference)

 

POPPET – “small human figure used in witchcraft and sorcery,” c.1300, early form of puppet (q.v.). Meaning “small or dainty person” – Recorded from late 14thC.; later a term of endearment.
