If you are boys, your God is a woman.

If you are women, your God is a boy.

If you are men, your God is a maiden.

The God is where you are not.

So: it is wise that one has a God; this serves for your perfection.

A maiden is the pregnant future.

A boy is the engendering future.

A woman is: having given birth.

A man is: having engendered.

So: if you are childlike beings now, your God will descend from the height

of ripeness to age and death.

But if you are developed beings, having engendered or given birth, in body

or in soul, so your God rises from the radiant cradle, to the incalculable height

of the future, to the maturity and fullness of the coming time.

He who still has his life before him is a child.

He who lives life in the present is developed.

If you thus live all that you can live, you are developed.

He who is a child in this time, his God dies.

He who is developed in this time, his God continues to live. ~Carl Jung, The Red Book, Page 244
