a light in the darkness - individual psychology in consumer society


From the final paragraph of The Mysterium Lectures, by Dr Edward Edinger; the essence:


 "When God is about to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah, Abraham remonstrates:

'What if there are 5 righteous people there?'
Mysterium Lectures - Edinger, Jung

'I'll save it if there are 50.'

'What if there are 10?'
'I'll save the city if there are 10.'

It's not beyond the realm of possibility that just one person might be enough to preserve the world.

I suggest that you entertain the idea, and furthermore, consider that perhaps you are ONE."

In dark times (I.E. now) this feels so important ...
