The Times They Are A’Changing

Bob Dylan at 70 years of age

I have reached a point in my life where this blog site will cease being the centre of my on-line presence. I am not going to delete this blog site, but I will be posting here very irregularly. I am going to set up a different blog site that is not about Jungian Psychology. When I have the next version of blogging in place, I will provide a post here to let all know about the blog site and it’s URL. I do hope some, if not all of you decide to continue in sharing this journey with me.

Again, this is not the end of Through a Jungian Lens – if anything, it is a time-out for something different. Click on the title of Bob Dylan’s song to here his voice sing.


The Times they are a-changin – Bob Dylan

Come gather ’round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You’ll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you is worth savin’
Then you better start swimmin’ or you’ll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin’

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won’t come again
And don’t speak too soon
For the wheel’s still in spin
And there’s no tellin’ who that it’s namin’
For the loser now will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin’

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don’t stand in the doorway
Don’t block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There’s a battle outside and it is ragin’
It’ll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin’

Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don’t criticize
What you can’t understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is rapidly agin’
Please get out of the new one if you can’t lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin’

The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is rapidly fadin’
And the first one now will later be last
For the times they are a-changin’

    • I hope so – a blog with a difference for me, one that is focused on “journey” in a spiritual sense rather than a psychological sense. I hope you enjoy the ride. 🙂

  2. We are sorry to read this my Friend, but we think we slightly understand your motivations and so, in the true sense of the word, we have respect for your decision.

    Over the years, with your daily Post, you supplied us with many issues that enabled us to look deeper in ourselves, because we could follow your torch in the darkness of our labyrinth.

    Thank you for daily sharing with us all these years – and we hope that the new path that you take on the crossroad will lead you to new and more unexpected realms and more consciousness.

    I refer to your Post and picture of the crossroads of Dead Man’s Flat and the personification of the Anima in the form of the Coyote on the cross roads.

    • Thank you as always, my friend, for your thoughts. I am always impressed with the depth of your observations. You will find that I am continuing to post with regularity on the alternate blog site for the present time. If all works out as I think it will, I will return here to again post in the late fall.

  3. It’s a wonderful thing to move from the psychological sense to the spiritual sense of oneself. In doing this I found true healing and a peace never known to me before the transition which seemed to come naturally. Before I realized it, the Buddhism I had been reading and trying to understand (for about 20 years) suddenly became clear and my consciousness opened. I am now able to see beauty in everything; even the difficulties I have in my life I now see as teachers. One morning when I opened my Salada Tea Bag I found a quote on the tag: “There’s no gift like the present.” I am amazed at the opportunities for inspiration that are all around me now that I stopped looking for them. Robert, I look forward to reading about your Journey. Would you direct me to your new blog site – I can’t find it. Patricia

    • Thank you, Patricia, for your comment here. As I mentioned in another comment and on my last post, that other blog site is no more. I intend to keep it simple and keep it here. Yes, it is an amazing journey to discover and wander through the spiritual aspect of self and not get too focused on the psychological aspect. My pilgrimage will teach me much about the need to keep balance – body, mind and soul.
