The Theologian, The Evangelist, The Elder, The Beloved Disciple, Apostle of Charity

You excuse yourself with your disbelief in the immortality of the soul. Do you think that the dead do not exist because you have’ devised the impossibility of immortality? You believe in your idols of words. The dead produce effects, that is sufficient. In the inner world there is no explaining away, as little as you can explain away the sea in the outer world. You must finally understand your purpose in explaining away, namely to seek protection. ~Carl Jung, Red Book, Page 298.
