From Abe, comments section in previous post:
The question then becomes how to integrate the earthly ego with this soul and through it with its angel, for it is through such an engagement that the individual becomes fully a Person, an integrated whole, connected to the source of Being yet also active in the world.
*** Indeed failure to connect with the angel results in very real powers of darkness invading the soul, and here Corbin differs from his contemporary Carl Jung, for he did not see the dark forces as a shadow to be integrated, but as an enemy to be defeated by the powers of Light. ***
Is this not the splitting of the original hair?
There is a throne upon which the Soul waits to be seated.
Before the throne can be occupied, it must be vacated.
But whatever has occupied the throne has only done so because it has been given the space to do so.
The shadow is a throne-filler.
