[Passages from a Gnostic Hymn and “The Red Book.]

My soul, O most splendid one,…whither has thou gone? Return again. Awake, soul of splendor, form the slumber of drunkenness into which thou has fallen…follow me to the place of the exalted earth where thou dwellest from the beginning. ~Cited by Hans Jonas, The Gnostic Religion, Page 83.

My soul you-are you there? I have returned, I am here again. I have shaken the dust of all the lands from my feet, and I have come to you, I am with you. After long years of long wandering, I have come to you again. ~Carl Jung, The Red Book, Page 232.
