Jung – “Memories Dreams Reflections” pg. 275-276

“In a conversation with a cultivated Chinese I was also impressed, again and again, by the fact that these people are able to integrate so-called ‘evil’ without ‘losing face.’ In the West we cannot do this. For the Oriental the problem of morality does not appear to take first place, as it does for us.”

“I saw that Indian spirituality contains as much of evil as of good. The Christian strives for good and succumbs to evil; the Indian feels himself to be outside good and evil, and seeks to realize this state by meditation or yoga.”

“I want to be freed neither from human beings, nor from myself, nor from nature; the psyche, and life appear to me like divinity unfolded-and what more could I wish for?”
