But the great thing is here and now, this is the eternal moment, and if you do not realize it, you will have missed the best part of life. You will have missed the realization that you are the carrier of a life contained between the poles of an unimaginable future and an unimaginably
 
remote past. Millions of years and untold millions of ancestors have worked up to this moment…. One should take each moment as the eternal moment, as if nothing were ever going to change, not anticipating a faraway future. For the future always grows out of that which is,… You must live life in such a spirit that you make in every moment the best of the possibilities….~Carl Jung, The Visions Seminar, Page 759.
 
“I should advise you to put it all down as beautifully as you can — in some beautifully bound book,” Jung instructed.
 
“It will seem as if you were making the visions banal — but then you need to do that — then you are freed from the power of them… . Then when these things are in some precious book you can go to the book & turn over the pages & for you it will be your church — your cathedral — the silent places of your spirit where you will find renewal.
 
If anyone tells you that it is morbid or neurotic and you listen to them — then you will lose your soul — for in that book is your soul.” ~Carl Jung to Mary Conover, The Red Book, Introduction, Page 216
