In practical terms, individuation implies that the more truly we become ourselves the more truly we can relate to others and the closer we can get to them, as we cannot have a genuine relationship with another person until we have, through an inner psychic process of uniting the opposites, become fully ourselves. The paradoxical reality that we cannot become ourselves without relationships with others (and vice versa) makes analytical psychology more object-related than is commonly thought. Jung is explicit about the centrality of relatedness in individuation: “The unrelated human being lacks wholeness, for he can achieve wholeness only through the soul, and the soul cannot exist without its other side, which is always found in a ‘you’” (CW16:454).

Yet when consciousness enters, everything changes. It is not a doing, but it is a something. It is not thinking, but it is the existential being that has thinking as its subject (Walker 2000:175). Consciousness is a fundamental part of reality. Existing in its own right with its own identity, consciousness is both real and nonphysical. The non-spatiality of consciousness is connected with its imperceptibility. Consciousness enables us to perceive the world but is not itself 30 A DREAM IN THE WORLD a perceptible thing (McGinn 1999:113).

But what I want to make room for here is the possibility that the very feeling of conviction about the reality of religious experience to which Smith (2001: 29) refers above may have its origins in the soul. This is to suggest that beyond the ego and its bodily senses, we human beings have interior or perhaps intuitive senses (ways of knowing) that can orient us in the inner world as truly as our familiar bodily senses orient us in the world of everyday reality.
