Year One: September 2016— August 2017
Loss of Meaning:
So long as he knows that he is the carrier of life
and that it is therefore important for him to live,
then the mystery of his soul lives also –
no matter whether he is conscious or not.
But if he no longer sees the meaning of his life in his fulfilment,
and no longer believes in man’s eternal right to his fulfilment,
then he has betrayed and lost his soul, substituting for it a madness
which leads to destruction,
as our time demonstrates all too clearly.
— C. G. Jung, CW 14, § 201
