Look, the Catholic priest is the most faithful, the closest to the earth.

He is living history, and no Holzapfel.

That you “live for God” is perhaps the healthiest thing about you -“He that is near me is near the fire,” so runs a Gnostic saying of the Lord.

But where God is nearest the danger is greatest.

God wants to be born in the flame of man’s consciousness, leaping ever higher.

And what if this has no roots in the earth?

If it is not a house of stone where the fire of God can dwell, but a wretched straw hut that flares up and vanishes?

Could God then be born? One must be able to suffer God.

That is the supreme task for the carrier of ideas.

He must be the advocate of the earth.

God will take care of himself. My inner principle is: Deus et homo.

God needs man in order to become conscious, just as he needs limitation in time and space. Let us therefore be for him limitation in time and space, an earthly tabernacle. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Page 65-66
