There is a constant dance between our Ego and our Soul. Both must maintain their autonomy and purposefulness. Our Ego and Persona is directed to adaptation to the outer world while the Soul must keep us aligned with our inner life and our teleological destiny. Ego and Persona must help us navigate the Spirit of the Time while the Soul must keep us aligned with the Spirit of the Depth. Each is one the two legs that we stand on in the present time and eternal time. Their task is to maintain alignment with their respective purpose yet coordinate to optimize one’s terrestrial Self with their Celestial Self. To undertake the Magnum Opus of Individuation, we need their partnership without being intrusive into each other’s domain. How these entities maintain this Complexio Oppositorium is an Enigma. Over eons, these Dioscuri twins have evolved a Mysterious language of the Soul. The decoding of this Enigma is mediated by the archetype of the Divine Tricksters: Hermes and Krishna. This Enigma to decode the Mysterious language of the Soul will be explored from a Neuroscience and Analytical perspectives.
