Approach to God

“I believe that we have no real access to who we really are except in God. Only when we rest in God can we find the safety, the spaciousness, and the scary freedom to be who we are, all that we are, more than we are, and less than we are.” C. G. Jung

“The eye in which I see God is the same eye in which God sees me. My eye and  God’s eye are  one eye and one seeing, one knowing and one loving.” Meister Eckhart

“....To this day God is the name by which I designate all things which cross my willful path violently and recklessly, all things which upset my subjective views, plans and intensions and change the course of my life for better or worse.” C. G. Jung

“...I consciously and intentionally made my life miserable, because I wanted God to be alive and free from the suffering  that man has put on him by loving his own reason more than God’s secret intensions. There is a mystical fool in me that proved to be stronger than all science. I think that God in turn has bestowed life upon me and has saved me from petrification. Thus I suffered and was miserable, but it seemed that life was never wanting and even in the blackest night, and just there, by the grace of God I could see a great light. Somewhere there seems to be a great kindness in the abysmal darkness of the Deity...” C. G. Jung

“If you can  not find God in the next person you meet you might as well stop looking.” Mahatma  Gandhi
