To L. Stehli

Dear Frau Stehli, 31 October 1952

Were I not old and ill I would take the trouble to explain to you personally why human ideas of God are not necessarily right.

God is something unknowable. An old German mystic has said: “God is a sigh in our souls.”

Paul, as you know, said something similar.

My personal religious convictions are not shaken in the slightest by the fearful contradictions in the Biblical texts.

I just wanted to tell you this to set your mind at rest.

With kind regards,

C.G. Jung ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. II, Pages 86-87.
