Red Book

But what is the resolution?

It is always something ancient and precisely because of this something new, for when something long since passed away comes back again in a changed world, it is new.

To give birth to the ancient in a new time is creation.

This is the creation of the new, and that redeems me.

Salvation is the resolution of the task.

The task is to give birth to the old in a new time.

The soul of humanity is like the great wheel of the zodiac that rolls along the way.

Everything that comes up in a constant movement from below to the heights was already there.

There is no part of the wheel that does not come around again.

Hence everything that has been streams upward there, and what has been will be again.

For these are all things which are the inborn properties of human nature.

It belongs to the essence of forward movement that what was returns.

Only the ignorant can marvel at this.

Yet the meaning does not lie in the eternal recurrence of the same, but in the manner of its recurring creation at any given time. ~Carl Jung, The Red Book, Page 311
