Carl Jung: Often people come for analysis who wish to be prepared to meet death.




Often people come for analysis who wish to be prepared to meet death.

They can make astonishingly good progress in a short time and then die peacefully. Inner development can advance enormously if there is knowledge
of the nearness of the end.

It seems as if a further step in consciousness has to be reached before the end of life.

Psychology is a preparation for death.

We have an urge to leave life at a higher level than the one at which we entered. ~Carl Jung, Jung-Ostrowski, Page 16.

From this attitude of Freud’s I felt more than ever convinced that his idea of God was placed in sexuality, and that libido is to him only an urge in one direction.

As a matter of fact, however, I think it can be shown that there is a will to die as well as a will to live.

We prepare ourselves for death when we reach the summit of life; or, to put it in another way, after the age of thirty-five, let us say, we begin to know that cooler winds are blowing—at first we don’t understand, but later we cannot escape the meaning. ~Carl Jung, Seminar 1925, Page 25.
