Sunday. The previous evening, Emma Jung presented “On guilt” to the Association for Analytical Psychology.

She commented on guilt in Christianity, noting,

“The guilt of knowledge is only one-sided.

Its necessary counterpart is sexuality.

Both powers lead man beyond himself into the fruitful error of knowledge and action.

From there conditions arise which load up new obligations- and from which we shy away- which we perceive as guilt. Intellectuality and sensuality are the two daimons, which lead man beyond himself, but also into a wider life” (MAP, pp. 130 – 31) . ~The Black Books, Vol. VI, Page 247, fn 230
