Therefore I had to remain true to love, and, devoted to it voluntarily, I suffer the dismembering and thus attain bonding with the great mother, that is, the stellar nature, liberation from bondage to men and things. ~Carl Jung, Red Book, Page 356.
If I am bound to men and things, I can neither go on with my life to its destination nor can I arrive at my very own and deepest nature. Nor can death begin in me as a new life, since I can only fear death. ~Carl Jung, Red Book, Page 356.
How else could I experience death other than through remaining true to love and willingly accepting the pain and all the suffering? ~Carl Jung, Red Book, Page 356.
It is difficult to remain true to love since love stands above all sins. He who wants to remain true to love must also overcome sin. ~Carl Jung, Red Book, Page 356.
