The more you cling to that which all the world desires, the more you are Everyman, who has not yet discovered himself and stumbles through the world like a blind mind leading the blind with somnambulistic certainty into the ditch.
Everyman is always a multitude.
Cleanse your interest of that collective sulphur which clings to all like a leprosy.
For desire only burns in order to burn itself out, and in and from this ﬁre arises the true living spirit which generates life according to its own laws, and is not blinded by the shortsightedness of our intentions or the crude presumption of our superstitious
belief in the will. Carl Jung, CW 14, Para 192
