The Draft continues:
“The mystery play took place at the deepest bottom of my interior, which is that other world.
You have to bear this in mind, it is also a world and its reality is large and frightening.
You cry and laugh and tremble and sometimes you break out in a cold sweat for fear of death.
The mystery play represents my self and through me the world to which I belong is represented.
Thus, my friends, you learn much about the world, and through it about yourself by what I say to you here.
But you have not learned anything about your mysteries in this way; indeed, your way is darker than before, since my example will stand obstructively in your path.
You may follow me, not on my way; but on yours” (p. 102). ~Carl Jung, Liber Novus, Page 247, Footnote 164.
