simple note

Every once in a while, I try to post a quotation that somewhat explains the perplexity of life in different shades. The following conveys the meaning that is simple, profound, and by no means easily grasped.

“We are psychic process which we do not control, or only partly direct. Consequently, we cannot have any final judgment about ourselves or our lives. If we had, we would know everything –but at most that is only a pretense. At bottom we never know how it has all come about. The story of a life begins somewhere, at some particular point we happen to remember; and even then it was already highly complex. We do not know how life is going to turn out. Therefore the story has no beginning, and the end can only be vaguely hinted at” (Carl Gustav Jung: Memories, Dreams, Reflections).
