Jung - on silence and his spiritual life - from "Letters"

Postby Hermitas » Mon Mar 03, 2014 1:23 pm

"Solitude is for me a fount of healing which makes my life worth living. Talking is often a torment for me, and I need many days of silence to recover from the futility of words.

I have got my marching orders and only look back when there is nothing else to do. This journey is a great adventure in itself, but not one that can be talked about at great length. What you think of as a few days of spiritual communion would be unthinkable for me with anyone, even my closest friends.

The rest is silence!

This realization becomes closer every day as the need to communicate dwindles."

~ Carl Jung, Letters of C.G. Jung, Volume 2, 1951-1961, Letter to Gustav Schmaltz, p. 363
