The Red Book (Philemon)
But we know that the ancients spoke to us in images.
Hence my thinking advised me to emulate Christ, not to imitate him but because he is the way If I follow a way, I do not imitate him.
But if I imitate Christ, he is my goal and not my way But if he is my way, I thus go toward his goal, as the mysteries had shown me previously Thus my thinking spoke to me in a confused and ambiguous manner, but it advised me to imitate Christ. ~Carl Jung, Liber Novus, Page 278, Footnote 163.
His own way led him to the cross for humanity’s own way leads to the cross. My way also leads to the cross, but not to that of Christ, but to mine, which is the image of the sacrifice and of life.
But as I was still blinded, I was inclined to yield to the enormous temptation of imitation and to look across to Christ, as if he were my goal and not my way. ~Carl Jung, Liber Novus, Page 278, Footnote 164.
Not one title of Christian law is abrogated, but instead we are adding a new one: accepting the lament of the dead. ~Carl Jung, Liber Novus, Page 278, Footnote 187.
