Carl Jung: Since you Live and Die with Yourself

999 live and did

The Red Book

May your greed consume you, for this wearies and calms it, and you will sleep well and consider the sun of each day as a gift.

If you devour other things and other people, your greed remains eternally dissatisfied, for it craves more, the most costly-it craves you.

And thus you compel your desire to take your own way.

You may ask others provided that you need help and advice.

But you should make demands on no one, neither desiring nor expecting anything from anyone except from yourself for your craving satisfies itself only within you.

You are afraid of burning in your own fire.

May nothing prevent you from doing so, neither anyone else’s sympathy nor your more dangerous sympathy with yourself.

Since you should live and die with yourself. Carl Jung, Red Book, The Way of the Cross, Paragraph 5.
