The Evolution of Love
The tale of Cupid and Psyche is a love story, and a story about change. It is a unique and beautiful tale of the evolution of a human being and the evolution of a god. As the story of the evolution of a human being, our tale is a profound example of the individuation process, the process whereby an individual becomes the full, complete person of his or her destiny.
In general, it is the process by which individual beings are formed and differentiated; in particular, it is the development of the psychological individual as a being distinct from the general, collective psychology. (CW VI, p. 448.)
As the story of the evolution of a god, our tale is even more complex, particularly because that god is Love himself. We can say that our tale is a story about the evolution of Love through Love. Perhaps this is where we should begin, with Love himself as archetype and god. free ebook
