Whoever does not value his own life will lose it. Now you must live.

Others ought to look after themselves and do not stand where your knife stabs. You

shouldn’t become a monkey and fool to others- for the sake of tomfoolery. ~Jung’s Soul, The Black Books, Vol. V, Page 205

In 1912 Jung cited the following lines from the Bhagavad Gita, chapter 4, verse 24 (in English in Edwin Arnold’s 1885 translation) :

“All ‘s then God! The sacrifice is Brahm, the ghee and the grain / Are Brahm, the fire is Brahm, the flesh it eats / is Brahm, and unto Brahm attaineth he / Who, in such office, meditates on Brahm” (Transformations and Symbols of the Libido, CW B, § 242n.). ~ The Black Books, Vol. V, Page 205, fn 4
