Jung and Islam: Two Pilgrims Leading to the Soul
Both Jungian psychology and the teaching of Islam reveal pathways to the completion of the human spirit. The insights and 'systems' of each are founded on inspiration not imitation, the unique experiential inner journey toward fulfillment. If you are to take the interpretation of self-directed (greater) jihad it beautifully coincides with Jung's process of individuation. While Islam is more regimented and specifically detailed than Jungian processes, if one is to put jihad in its appropriate spiritual place it becomes an individual spiritual quest rather that an outer political struggle. The completion of both bears no difference- the goal is fulfillment.
