Really beautiful. It isn't that hard to find a download link for it too. Here's one thread that I can remember that talked about it if you're interested. Just thought I'd bring it up again for those unfamiliar with it.

Just a little summary of what's in it:
>What follows is 16 years of the psychoanalyst's dive into the unconscious mind, a challenge to what he considered Sigmund Frued's — his former mentor's — isolated world view. Far from a simple narrative, the Red Book is Jung's voyage of discovery into his deepest self.
>Thirty years later, Jung had a bookbinder make an enormous volume covered in red leather into which he poured his explorations into himself. These explorations included some of mythical characters of his dreams and waking fantasies — explorations that Jung feared would make people think him mad.


I've had another look at his meditation technique active imagination again recently, and it's not that bad to use. It's pretty amazing just how creative this technique can be, as you don't have to just sit there and try visualizing whatever it is you're working on. Visualization, dancing, painting and even 2spooky automatic writing are all ways of letting the mental entities that you have come to life and communicate with you. The trick to it is to allow things to come naturally and try keep yourself from trying to influence what is being produced. That being said you still have to treat these mental entities as something real by investing yourself completely into it. You need to have authentic reactions towards anything that comes and let it develop without directly controlling it like a puppet. This helped me a bit with working out a good way for me to tulpaforce.

Here's something from wikipedia about it:

>As developed by Carl Jung between 1913 and 1916, active imagination is a meditation technique wherein the contents of one's unconscious are translated into images, narrative or personified as separate entities. It can serve as a bridge between the conscious 'ego' and the unconscious and includes working with dreams and the creative self via imagination or fantasy. Jung linked Active Imagination with the processes of alchemy in that both strive for oneness and inter-relatedness from a set of fragmented and dissociated parts. This process ultimately resulted in the Red Book.

So basically, seeing things in a spectator point of view (e.g. observer), letting things come by with a stoic disposition, having competencies of being able to engage in over-active imagination while at the same time having an unconscious habit of believing things are real, i.e., self-fulfilling prophecies on steroids that would make a newcomer's mind that would want an insta tulpa in 2 weeks explode.

I've seen this kind of experience when I image stream, and get so many tingling sensations from my back and head that emotions seem hard to control at first, and you start getting lost, forgetting most of what's going on around you. Lucid dreaming attempts helped a lot with getting used to throwing away mental baggage in life for more concentration on the imaginary. Guess endeavors like what is presumed in OP could be inspiration, and maybe a reality check for those that complain about lack of progress in a few months that over the course of years of practice, things will pay off.
