[At the Dawn of the 21st Century what do we do for our Dead?]
What the ancients did for their dead!
You seem to believe that you can absolve yourself from the care of the dead, and from the work that they so greatly demand, since what is dead is past.
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.
