[Dr. Jung’s admonition to those who would consider him a Prophet or any of his writings Scripture.]
Believe me: It is no teaching and no instruction that I give you. On what basis should I presume to teach your I give you news of the way of this man, but not of your own way.
My path is not your path therefore I cannot teach you.
The way is within us, but not in Gods, nor in teachings, nor in laws. Within us is the way, the truth, and the life.
Woe betide those who live by way of examples! Life is not with them.
If you live according to an example, you thus live the life of that example, but who should live your own life if not yourself?
So live yourselves. ~Carl Jung, The Red Book, Page 231.
