"Our life is like the course of the sun..."


Image from The Red Book, by C. G. Jung

"Our life is like the course of the sun. In the morning it gains continually in strength until it reaches the zenith-heat of high noon. Then comes the enantiodromia (running count to): the steady forward movement no longer denotes an increase, but a decrease, in strength. Thus our task in handling a young person is different from the task of handling an older person. In the former case, it is enough to clear away all the obstacles that hinder expansion and ascent; in the latter, we must nurture everything that assists the descent." Jung, On the Psychology of the Unconscious, CW7, Par. 114
